Miss Malia!

This gorgeous young woman is my first cousin and had asked if I could help her build a portfolio for the Miss Tonga Utah pageant. I was so excited to get out into the city to shoot her because not only is she beautiful but her personality and the way she carries herself already was an indicator that we were going to have a fabulous time. As I photographed her though, I saw a whole new person through my lens, it had hit me that Malia is not a lil' girl anymore which is what I typically see her as, since I'm alot older than she. I even teared up a few times because I realized this lil' cousin of minez is all grown up. It was so much fun to spend some QT time with her, goof around, and keep all the guys away....I'm tellin you young people these days are in a whole new arena when it comes to macking. As we shot this pix's, there was like two guys that followed us and were complimenting Malia with no shame. You gotta love it when guys can put it all out there with their heart on their sleeve - so cute:)..they couldn't resist her beauty and I know the judges for this pageant will do likewise. Malia, you rocked this photo shoot and I have no doubt that you will win the Miss Tonga Utah pageant:) Love ya!
