The Sunday before last, I shot another three ladies from the 2016 Miss Vietnam Sacramento Pageant for the annual calendar. The objective is simple. These ladies will come to my studio, get their hair and make up done by the amazing Quynh Dong, get a headshot from me then go outside to get the calendar shot.
I was out of the country when the pageant happened so I didn’t know who was who that was coming that day. But never fear! Because not only are these ladies super cute and sweet, they are super friendly as well. But then again with my crazy self, who wouldn’t have a good time, right?
We had a jolly good time at the studio that day. Here are a few sneak peeks of Nancy, Jessica and Phuong.
It will be interesting to see which shots will get picked for the calendar later. I hope you enjoy! The Vietnamese culture is so vibrant and fun. I came to the U.S. when I was 9. Growing up, I never wore ao dai. It wasn’t until college when I joined the Vietnamese Student Association (or VSA) that I became more involved in the Vietnamese community in Jacksonville, FL. Every year, we helped community leaders put together the Lunar New Year celebration which includes a beauty pageant (like this). From organizing and participating in such events, I gained a much deeper appreciation for our culture.
And now, I get to capture it and share it all with you through my photography.
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy this sneak peek. If you would love to have photos taken with your favorite tradition clothing, please contact me to get started.
