Once upon a time …

In the land of Mexico, princesses abound.

Here are some to see. Two from San Miguel de Allende. Two from Mexico City.

So much casual beauty, posing before the photographer’s lens.

    • In Mexico and other Spanish-Latino cultures, when a girl turns 15, she is considered on the threshold to womanhood. To mark this coming-of-age passage, she is treated like a princess, and a big celebration is created. Kind of like a bar mitzvah or bas mitzvah? Families save all their lives for this event — which is called a quinceaƱera.
