Say “hello!” to your 2012 Quinceanera cover girl crew. Quinceanera.com Magazine’s 2012 cover girls were a group of unique individuals with just as much beauty inside as out.
Claudia Avila is our violinist, Angelina Rodriguez is our “Sporty Spice”, Arlene Valdes our academic Quince girl, Shelbi Byrnes our songbird, Stephanie Guzman our aspiring psychologist, and Kenia Robles is our winner with a contagiously bubbly personality. Jazzel Garcia, Quinceanera.com’s 2012 Image model, was also part of the crew as our wholehearted sweetheart.
Each of them took the risk of entering one of our Quinceanera contests and because of their ambition, determination and passion, landed a spot in our 2012 group.
We wanted to officially present to you this amazing group of young Quince girls with an exclusive photo shoot that took place in the middle of the party planning for our San Diego Quinceanera.com Expo and Fashion Show where Kenia would be presented as the last Quinceanera covergirl of the year.
During the shoot, Stephanie was still on cloud nine after having been presented at the Ontario Expo just a few weeks before and Shelbi was still living the Quinceanera dream after having just celebrated her Quince two days prior to the shoot. Jazzel excitedly announced to her team that she was recently selected as a contestant for the Miss California/Teen USA 2013 pageant and as the first Quinceanera covergirl of the year, Claudia was eager to reunite with her crew once again. Although Angelina and Arlene couldn’t make it to the shoot, they sent their fellow Quince girls best wishes.
With the exception of Claudia who is currently planning her Quince, each of the girls was able to relive their Quinceanera by wearing the dress they wore during their own Quince celebration. Luna’s Bridal, location where the photo shoot took place, was generous enough to dress Claudia with one of their dresses, as well as allow all the girls to borrow accessories and head pieces.
Here are a few moments of our 2012 Quinceanera cover girl photo shoot as captured by the lens of Quinceanera.com’s official photographer, Max Pro Elegance Photography. You can pick up a copy of the 2012 October issue of Quinceanera.com Magazine where these pictures were also published, or surf the digital version of the magazine here.
Also, keep in mind that there’s a new year fast approaching and with it we’ll be adding more personalities to our Quinceanera cover girl group. Come early 2013 submissions for the first cover girl contest of the year will be published on Quinceanera.com. We hope you enter the contest and allow yourself to discover new things about you in the process. By doing so you’ll find that the sky truly is the limit and that your uniqueness is more than golden. We’re dying to have you part of the club!
LOCATION: Luna’s Bridal
WHAT WENT DOWN: For the center spread of the last 2012 issue of Quinceanera.com Magazine, it was all about reinventing. For this, we used each of the models’ own Quince dresses and paired them with hair and makeup styles that completely transformed the dress. The end results were amplified Quince looks that that left even the models thinking “why didn’t I think of that?!”
