|Contestant, college student and potential model, Colleen Carey|
Colleen is a beautiful college student that was competing in the pageant. She is naturally photogenic, and took direction very well. Although not as experienced as Eliza, she is a natural before the camera. Colleen is one of those people that are hard to take a bad photograph of. I had a difficult time deciding if I would process this photo in color or B&W. They both look so good, but the B&W seems to stand out, and brings out a certain glow in her. I hope to get her in the studio for some different lighting and backgrounds. She was a real pleasure to have before the lens.

Miss Maine Collegiate - 2014, Casey Bonville
The evening culminated in the crowning of Casey Bonville as Miss Maine Collegiate America for 2014. It was a very long day, but some great photos were taken. I am glad that Sharmee gave me the opportunity to photograph the pageant and all the great participants. Thanks to all of them for sharing their day with me. Photographing people is what I love doing.
