Maggie Lawson dropped by the studio for some updated photographs.
Elizabeth and Justin stopped by the studio for their engagement session. Although it was a bit cold for Justin (he lives in Houston) I really enjoyed their session and love the chemistry between them. It’s going to be a great time photographing their wedding in May.
It may have been freezing outside (and those who know Chicago winters know what freezing really is) but the heat was on inside the McCormick Convention Center where the Miss Illinois USA and Miss Illinois Teen USA pageants were rock’in the house.
These contestants could have burnt Chicago down again with their excitement and enthusiasm where, in a standing room only show, Stacie Juris was crowned Miss Illinois Teen USA and Ashley Bond was crowned Miss Illinois USA for 2009.

As always, the Miss Maryland USA sponsors staged a fantastic show at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center.
In a standing room only event, Gabrielle Carlson was crowned Miss Maryland USA and Kasey Staniszewski was crowned Miss Maryland Teen USA.

Inside Virginia Intermont’s auditorium crowds were mesmerized by the spectacle of the Miss Virginia Pageant. Maggie Lawson from Bristol delighted the hometown crowd when she was crowned Miss Virginia Teen USA. Maegan Phillips from Quantico was crowned Miss Virginia USA.
