The photos of Gio’s quinceañera are radiant, so you’ll probably find it difficult to believe that the hours leading up to them were totally and completely disastrous. Turning 15 is a huge achievement in the Latin community that symbolizes the transition from being a child to being an adult, or, in Gio’s case, leaving girlhood behind. Therefore, this special time is often honored by friends and a family members with a fun celebration known as a quinceañera, and an accompanying photo session is the perfect way to seal the milestone in time. The day that Gio’s photo session with Cary Diaz Photography Inc. rolled around, she and her mom had everything planned out — they were to all meet at the beautiful Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami and, before the shooting began, Gio was to be treated to a professional makeup and hair session. Unfortunately, this didn’t come to pass when the makeup and hair artist decided not to show. But, Gio and her mom were not about to let the situation get the best of them!. Gio grabbed her curling iron and set to work styling her own hair, and mom jumped on the phone and immediately started hunting down a replacement makeup artist. A few hours later, one had been found and Gio looked gorgeous as she debuted three stunning outfit choices — a flirty mini skirt and red heels combo, a traditional pink quinceañera ball gown and a boho-inspired romper! This day may have had a rocky start, but there’s not doubt it finished with a grand-slam.
Beautiful — thank you Cary Diaz Photography Inc. for sharing!
