And you won’t just shoot with one photographer, you will shoot with 10 to 12! That’s an amazing deal!

Every contestant in the Miss Bikini Pageant receives a crown and sash to represent her state or region. The crown and sash is great for photo shoots and for making local public appearances. They make for a wonderful keepsake long after the pageant is over. Each crown is custom made from pearls, Swarvoski crystals, and humanely sourced seashells. Each is unique, no two are exactly alike!
