After just days back in Texas from my training in NYC, I had the wonderful opportunity of judging the Miss Teen Dallas/Fort Worth Beauty Pageant through America’s Beauty Pageants. I have been contacted multiple times by beauty pageants in the DFW area asking me if I would consider judging. I have always said “no” because of a schedule conflict or, potentially, a fear of getting sucked into a Toddler and Tiaras situation. So this pageant season, when ABP contacted me, I decided to dive in. I am so very thankful that something made me say “yes” to the opportunity because judging the pageant was an amazing experience. The girls were beautiful people (inside and out), and I greatly enjoyed getting to meet my fellow judges (photographers, fashion designers, and various business owners). Here is a peek at my pageant weekend:
