I was lucky enough to get a chance to photograph Kennedy Bordeaux Wheeler, the USA National Miss South Carolina Teen 2016 for the second time this year at Edinburgh West, a European themed entertainment park.

This site is particularly meaningful to Kennedy because her mother, Colleen, grew up in a house that used to be on this very site.  Colleen and her mother worked together to come up with the yellow daisy theme. Colleen even created hair pieces and butterfly decorations for the photo shoot. Since this was an experimental shoot, we pulled out colored smoke bombs to use in the portraits. We also lucked up with a beautiful sunset in the sky behind the giant iron gate at the estate entrance.
