If there’s one thing Latinos do better, it’s everything. More specifically, we are very, very, very good at coming up with and posing for dramatic photoshoots involving props and backdrops made of various sumptuous fabrics.
Don’t believe me? Just look:
It all begins even before you’re even born:
Just look at this gorgeous, giant couple terrorizing that happy mom-to-be in a forest. It’s so beautiful.
It continues into babyhood, with floating babies everywhere:
Someone please give this child a churro.
Nothing conveys our religious fervor quite like a looming Jesus:
Please don’t bite little Selena Gomez, Jesus.
There are patented, iconic photoshoot poses, like this one:
The distance, gaze into it.
Of course, no talk of photoshoots is complete without mentioning quinceañeras.
This very natural, totally casual pose is a particular classic.
We can’t forget the accessories:

This picture, for instance, shows that the quinceañera isn’t only poised and very beautiful, she can also hunt ferrets better than anyone on the block.
The “shoe shot” is particularly important.
They deserve to be the focal point.
Of course, we can’t forget the chambelanes:
Just look at those smiles.
And what about the big day? So sweet.
Don’t forget the all-important family group portrait!
Why, you ask?
“As most family photoshoots go during the holidays, my daughter was in a highly anxious mode and later she worked out her frustrations in Photoshop. That’s the face of one of our dogs. She posted it on Facebook wishing everyone ‘Happy Holidays from the Rodriguez Family!’”
Christmas shoots provide a great opportunity to relive moments of pure joy.
Like this young man, who is wearing a shirt so nice, he got it twice.
And, finally, there’s the funeral photoshoot:
It’s your other big day. Go out with a bang.
Did you star in a truly beautiful photoshoot? We wanna see!
