I Shot The Queen (But I Did Not Shoot the Pageant Director)

What a privilege it's been to work with the Logan County Fair Queen Pageant this year!

My friend Deanne Mott is the pageant director and has contacted me the last two years to make the contestants' headshots. The ladies were wonderful to work with.

This year I also had the honor of making photographs of the new queen, Emily Berglin (local media stories here and here).  Emily is a delightful, intelligent, and hard-working young lady who is studying pre-law at SIU-Carbondale on some significant academic scholarships.  I wish her every success in school and in the upcoming Miss Illinois County Fair Queen Pageant in January, 2010.
