I had the honor of photographing the very first shoot of Miss ILL 2015. I went to Marion, IL the day after the pageant to do the hair and makeup, then the shoot. Crystal was super sweet and we had a great time! One of the perks of being Miss ILL, is getting to go into the local gown shops, try on anything you want, and use ANY gown you want for the shoot. That was pretty cool 😉 We did the first part of the shoot in one of the director’s homes.
For the second half of the shoot, I wanted to do something more my style. So we went to this quaint chapel in the Marion Cemetery. It was naturally windy that day, so I got great wind action.
