Jeilysse's Cotillion/Discovery Bay Country Club

Cotillion Discover Bay Country Club

Happy 18th Birthday Jeilysse!! What an honor to photograph this pivotal moment in a young woman's life. There was dancing and more dancing, and singing and yes, even rapping (sort of...j/k). It's a Filipino tradition for when a girl turns 18. There was a whole entourage of her friends and family that all participated in multiple dances. Some were traditional & some performed some amazing contemporary pieces.

In between, there is the 18 Roses dance. It was memorable because while each special gentleman in her life presented her with a rose and a dance, a lovely lady lit one of her 18 candles and told stories of their life and friendship with the debutant. It was very heartwarming to see how greatly she has affected those lives around her.

Congratulations Jeilysse!

xoxo,

Meo
