I set a challenge to do one more pageant (Miss Virginia), lose 40lbs, and show it all off with a Benizo Session. Once I booked I knew it was “Game On!” I called my Mom and best friend to tell them how excited I was. I couldn’t believe I was finally going to work with the infamous artist I followed for years. I was nervous but sooo excited at the same time.
When I got there my nerves went away. Our energies just clicked. He seemed as excited to see me as I was him and I felt at ease instantly. I got over an hour with Bianca who only made things better. When I looked in the mirror when she was done I saw a new woman in that mirror!
Overly confident I was not. I had only done a couple of shoots (but amateur compared to his) so I became worried about messing up. Once I got my first outfit on we were talking and he just posed me and click! Click! He sensed my nerves and used them to create some amazing shots in seconds. From that point forward it was pure creative energy.
Walking into the room you feel this instant calm. You’re able to take whatever insecurity someone has and help them let it go. This experience has been one of the most memorable and positive in my life. If I’m having a down day i just remember our session and feel better instantly. I can’t wait to shoot again!
I have battled with my weight and pageantry didn’t help. I am finally back on track with a healthy lifestyle and feeling so proud of that. I finally feel sexy & beautiful again! But feeling like a super model in front of Benizo’s lens, has helped me remember that no matter what I weigh, I am beautiful and have so much good to offer the world.

You’ve been so kind to me ever since we first met. You said I bring “instant positive energy” and I love that! No one had ever said that to me before our photoshoot but now so many people have said similar things over the years. I think that you helped me recognize this quality in myself and that has allowed me to channel it in my thoughts & actions in all areas of my life. Arizona here we come!
