Miss Reno & Miss Outstanding Teen Reno

We have such outstanding young ladies representing the City of Reno... meet Nasya Mancini and Tia Henderson! Nasya is Miss Reno and Tia is Miss Reno's Outstanding Teen. It was a pleasure to spend some time wandering around the biggest little city taking photos of them. If you haven't seen the post of beautiful Tia in the snow click here. Downtown Reno has become such a fun place to explore . . . We have had an incredible winter this year and the river is flowing fast and high so getting too close was off limits but we were able to make stops at the newly constructed bridge, the BELIEVE sign, and the iconic Reno Arch (up close and personal thanks to the amazing staff at the gorgeous Whitney Peak Hotel). I also did some headshots of the lovely Nasya with more of rustic NV feel out in the sagebrush. Be sure to scroll all the way to the end for those... some of my very favorites!

Tia's other titles include Miss Truckee Meadows Outstanding Teen, Miss Sparks Outstanding Teen, and Miss Mount Rose Outstanding Teen. Tia became involved in pageants after she  was encouraged by the local pageant director to see what the Miss America program was all about. She also knew many of the girls in the program from dance class before attending her first meeting. Tia's next goal is Miss Nevada's Outstanding Teen!

Tia and Nasya have known each other since the age of 3 because they both danced together at Jenny’s Studio of Dance.  She has been Tia’s sister title holder every year that Tia has competed. The two of them traveled to Orlando, Florida together to watch the Miss America’s OutstandingTeen Pageant and of course visit Disney World! Nasya helped dye Tia’s hair in a hotel bathroom in Las Vegas the night before competiion at   The Miss Nevada Pageant last year.They were experts at sneaking candy bars from the vending machine and taking them back to their hotel room and also managed to sneak back to their rooms and get Johnny Rocket milk shakes at Miss Nevada last year even though they were suppose to be eating healthy.
