Miss Arizona’s Outstanding Teen Contestant- Mimi Hymel

Desert Botanical Garden photography portrait session

I had a pleasure of photographing a portrait session for Mimi, Miss Surprise Outstanding Teen, before the statewide Miss Arizona Outstanding Teen competition. She wanted to incorporate the Arizona flag and it’s bold colors in the gorgeous desert setting at the Desert Botanical Garden. I simply loved her rich green ball gown in the lush herb garden and pale blue gown among the organ pipe cactus. At one point Mimi was in her blue gown when a little boy walked by along the trail, as he passed and he said “hello” to Cinderella. I have to agree she certainly looked like Cinderella at that moment!
