This pageant is really a lot of fun to be involved in! All of the girls come into the studio for a nights of fun, fashion and fotos! We do individual portraits in business attire, casual and formal gowns. These are then used for advertising the pageant, the Ms Photogenic competition, the slideshow show at the pageant, and I make a slideshow to post on Facebook and here on the blog. That is just a small part about all of the fun things they do during their preparation for the pageant. Here is the info. Call today and get signed up!!
