New Promotional Photos

I desperately needed some new promo images to show off some new costumes and my current look. I decided to give photography a try myself because I love taking pictures.

Without further ado, here are the pictures taken by my student, Elizabeth, and our professional photographer of the evening, Bonnie Stanley of The Intimate Lens Photography. You can also find more pictures on Facebook here and here. Note: Watermarked images are copyrighted and property of...
