I had the privilege to do a sister shoot of the reigning Miss Las Vegas 2017, and Miss Las Vegas' Outstanding Teen 2017. Although we met up early in the morning, we're definitely grateful because it wasn't as hot just yet. I had a fun time exploring different backdrops through Downtown Las Vegas area with these two! Enjoy the photos :]
Both of these women are a part of the Miss Nevada Organization which is an official preliminary to Miss America, and Miss America's Outstanding Teen. The Miss Nevada Organization enables these young women the opportunity to make a difference in their communities promoting platforms that are close to their hearts, while earning scholarship money.
The reigning Miss Las Vegas 2017 is Alexis Hilts. She is a double major at UNLV (biochemistry and political science) and will be applying to grad school! She was also 1st runner up at Miss Nevada, and walked away with thousands in scholarships for her achievements (top interview, top onstage question, top gown, and 1st runner up overall). Her platform focuses on STEM Education.
The reigning Miss Las Vegas' Outstanding Teen 2017 is Alexa Fahd. She is a very talented dancer, and has such a fun personality. I loved getting to know her through this shoot! She was 4th runner up at Miss Nevada's Outstanding Teen and her platform focuses on animal adoption, rather than purchasing from pet shops.
