It's More Than a Crown
I have been photographing pageants and titleholders for quite some time now. Each and every young lady I've worked with has a story, a reason why she competes; something much bigger than herself.
The women that compete in pageants are often labeled as "unintelligent" or "superficial," but these ladies are anything but. I asked several past and present title holders why they compete in pageants and this is what they said! (All photography by K. Garcia Productions)
