My pageant photography is designed to help you stand out from the crowd. My images have won photogenic in every age group, from Tiny Miss to Mrs., and in every major system, including Miss America, Miss USA, International Junior Miss, National America Miss, Miss United States, USA National Miss, and others. I will treat you as an individual and will tailor the session to create an image unique to you - there is no cookie-cutter approach. A four time customer and previous Miss Teen Virginia USA recently left a session saying how much she enjoyed never knowing what she was going to get. It was different every time! That being said, I do have a "style". I won't reshape your face and body, blur your skin, and whiten your eyes and teeth to the point where you look like something not found in nature. If left to my own devices I will bring a fashion/model flare to the shoot, giving your images a different perspective from traditional pageant photographers. If you want the full glamour treatment or a more traditional image, I can also do that. It's your shoot and I will do my best to help you achieve your goals.
