The phone call started with a very frantic voice on the other end of the line. The photographer that normally photographs for the Miami County Duchess and Princess pageants had a wedding to cover. I am so thankful to be friends with this photographer, because she gave my name over to the pageant committee. This opportunity left me with a full heart and feeling so blessed to have been able to meet these beautiful ladies and contestants. Thank you to Lindsey at Snappy Giraffe Photography for allowing me the opportunity to photograph this year. To the Miami County Pageant Committee, Thank you for taking a chance on me, and I hope to be involved more next year!
The stage was decorated with candy decor. The contestants did a phenomenal job in their opening number. As a first time pageant goer, this left my feet tapping to the music choice and a smile on my face.
FAVORITE OUTFIT COMPETITION
EVENING GOWN COMPETITION
While the judges deliberated This was the time I was given the opportunity to do quick full length portraits of the contestants. Battling the sun and wind during the Princess pageant and fighting the lighting clock during the Dutchess pageant we still had fun. In the end the contestants and the photos were beautiful. These photos were printed by Millers lab and gifted to the girls (this was my favorite part).
Being able to give something to these girls for doing an amazing job was my absolute pleasure!
