Kristen Danyal is Miss Michigan USA 2012!!!!

I attended the Miss Michigan USA & Miss Michigan Teen USA pageant on Saturday. I am one of the official photographers of  Miss Michigan USA & Miss Ohio USA this year and will be shooting all of the winners (officially this time 😉 ). I worked with Kristen earlier this year, in January. She is absolutely GORGEOUS! she has the most perfect hair i have ever seen. the best part is that she’s the biggest sweetheart 🙂

she was Miss Michigan Teen USA 2009 and placed top 15 at Miss Teen USA that year as well. And now she is Miss Michigan USA 2012! I am beyond happy and excited for her! she deserves it!

i really need to buy a new point & shoot camera -_- i’ve been putting it off for literally years.

here are some sub par photos from the pageant off of my phone:
