"It was never about winning a pageant, or being better than others, it was about being my best self."

I was a shy person wanting to peel back the different layers to myself.

I had been thinking about shooting with Ben for months after I saw that one of my friends had shot with him and the photos were, fire. I was just out of college at the time and preparing for my first try at becoming the next Miss Maine USA.

I was nervous, because, I had never shot with a real photographer before... headshots at school do not count!

I was nervous initially because I wasn’t sure that I was fully prepared and knew what to do, but after 10 minutes my jaw was dropping because I couldn’t believe was ME on the camera screen. Ben made it “effortless to be me!” I thought to myself, I’ve got this and that I can’t wait to look at these photos when I’m 70 years old! 

He makes you see your confidence even before a photo is snapped.

Ben made sure I already knew that I was confident, even before a photo was snapped. I had the ambition and drive to win and never give up regardless if I was going for a pageant win or any other challenge that I faced in life.

He allowed me to keep believing that I could win and do so WITHOUT GIVING MY POWER AWAY. That simply by being me and giving it my all I could succeed.

Since the first shoot, I never wanted to work with anyone else. Even throughout my reign as Miss Maine USA 2015 - I never did.

Ben was a cheerleader for me since day one! He became and instant friend and one that I can say after almost 10 years, we still talk to this day. He cares about your growth and is a natural when it comes to showing you how to bring out the best in yourself - both on and off the camera.

My 3 Takeaways

"The Shoots are High!! You don’t want them to end. Or you can’t wait to go back and let everyone see this new light inside yourself. It’s Awe-Inspiring. "

Friendship and encouragement alongside photos that will last me a lifetime. I grew as a woman throughout each of my sessions and challenged myself above all. Thank you Ben and Bianca – you both are shining stars!
