Last weekend I got the chance to photograph the California State Queens for the Miss American Coed Pageant. They met for the day in Ontario, at the Hyatt, and after full make up and hair, we started shooting out by the pool, with the girls wearing Celebrity Pink Jeans.
This might be my favorite image from the day – it’s just so dramatic and emotional. It’s a beautiful portrait!
What could be more Californian, than beautiful girls, bright sunny light, windswept hair, and a crown?
And we’ll end with the littlest pageant queen – you’d think that crown might be maybe a bit too big? But you’d be wrong – she knew how to work it!

beautiful pictures as always, you are such a great photographer!!
You managed to make “pageant girls” look like real girls and women, and not mannequins. Beautiful.
Thank you Beverly!
I love that Pam! Thank you!
