Last week I had the pleasure of shooting the new National American Miss Nevada - Bonnie Lei. In July I watched her grace the stage with her radiant smile at the National American Miss Nevada-Utah pageant held at the JW Marriott Resort in Summerlin. Being that I'm a former National American Miss Nevada myself I was even more excited when she reached out to me to do her headshots for the upcoming National pageant in November.
Bonnie started the morning off really early in the makeup chair getting done up by Elizabeth Tervo of Dashing Beauty Artistry. Elizabeth went for a natural look to bring out Bonnie's features.
We definitely explored various spots through Summerlin during her shoot! We saw a few puppies at the park and people definitely took notice to her sparkly crown congratulating her and asking her questions.
By far my favorite shot is when we caught some sunshine coming in just behind her, giving her a nice glow.
I'm looking forward to cheering for Bonnie as she competes for the National American Miss title! I know she is going to have a blast in Anaheim and will make Nevada proud.
