Virginia Miss Amazing 2017 – Hampton Roads

This was my second year photographing the Virginia Miss Amazing Pageant. To say these girls are inspiring is an understatement. I always leave the event feeling so excited and motivated. This year’s organizer, Sharon Turner, did an amazing job organizing this special event.

“Miss Amazing is a nationwide program that provides opportunities for girls and women with disabilities to build self confidence.”


I truly enjoy volunteering my services to causes that I believe in. Watching these girls share their talents and what makes them happiest feels truly beautiful. I feel it is such a blessing to be able to capture this each year and I can’t wait to do it again next year!


One thing about the Miss Amazing Pageant that I think is truly unique…it isn’t just about the contestants — it’s about the families.


Seeing everyone come together to celebrate these girls is a truly beautiful thing.

Some of their talents were moving…

Some made you laugh…


You couldn’t help but cheer…
Miss Amazing 2017

They had you singing along…

Then they made you want to rock out…

But one thing is for sure…EVERY girl is a winner in this pageant!

Even a contestant’s boyfriend got to be a winner! Best Escort!

Special shout out to the Virginia Beach Police Department. They did an amazing job volunteering for this wonderful event.
