Mya

Mya is a beautiful girl inside and out. It was so much fun photographing her in the studio.


Mya was the winner of the Teen Show Girl competition at the 2018 Central Coast Regional Show. As the show girl winner, Mya represents her community in various rural, leisure, artistic and scholarly activities.


Mya loved the 1940s Hollywood style and the black and white photos and when she saw the dresses she fell in love with the full length satin finish pink dress that fitted her like a glove. The dress was full length, in a beautiful pale pink and had pleats at the front and diamante detailing on the bust. When Mya put the dress on, she felt transformed and was imagining all the places she could be wearing such a dress. First on her list was what it would be like to wear this dress to her school formal.


When she saw her photos, her first words were "Mummy I look so beautiful". I loved her energy and youthfulness. An absolute pleasure to photograph.
