OKINAWA BRIGHT + VIBRANT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR HAPPY, KIND SOULS
Ahhhhhhh!! I L O V E this session for many reasons. Mostly because it involved the beautiful and kind-hearted Karalie but also because this session was for her run for Miss Montana 2016!! The Miss Montana Scholarship Program has held a special place in my heart for many years. It is one of the events that changed my life for the better. It is an uplifting competition which focuses on your brains & your hardwork while letting you perform your talents and wear pretty dresses and jewelry!
Every year young women (18-24) compete at Miss Montana to find lifelong friends, a better understanding of themselves, and scholarship money to help pay for their higher education. In the end one wonderful woman walks away with a sparkly crown and the title of Miss Montana America. The winner of the competition goes on to compete at Miss America which usually airs on television around September. It is a extremely fun, challenging, unforgettable experience and I believe any young woman who is remotely interested should participate! There is nothing better than getting to express your opinions, wear pretty dresses, and showcase who you are all while earning money for college. If you are someone who is interested in becoming the next Miss Montana please contact the current Miss Montana, Danielle Wineman, right HERE or find more information on the Miss Montana Scholarship Program, HERE!
Now onto the real superstar of this blog post – Karalie!! She is truly one of the most genuine, caring, and gracious hearted people I have ever met in my life. Wherever she goes she fills the room with confidence, life, and laughter. I am so truly honored to have been her Miss Montana sister, roommate and friend. She is (obviously) also extremely gorgeous! I was blown away when I first met her on how beautiful she is along with how sweet she is. We spent a whole week together and I never heard her speak ill about one single person; rather she was one of the most uplifting people at the pageant. Once Karalie is in your life, you know you have a friend to turn to when times get tough along with someone to share all your joys. She is incredible, y’all. Here is a little peek into our session * XO
