Photoshoot with Miss Tourism International Nigeria, Cognito Studios Abuja

Here are a few photos from an awesome series with the beauty Queen Victoria (@glam_baroness on Instagram) Had fun working with her and Chioma Igbokwe of Zapel World, a talented fashion designer (@zapelworld). Victoria is the reigning Miss Tourism International Nigeria and was one of the top 10 favorites/finalists at the 2014 Miss Tourism International in Malaysia December last year. She is truly beautiful and so easy to work with.


Photography: Yours truly
Styling and Wardrobe: @zapelworld
Beauty Queen: @glam_baroness
Location: Shot at the #worldclass Cognito Studios Abuja



Victoria isn't just a beautiful human being, but as a beauty pageant winner she also nurtures a passion to use her influence to enhancing the lives of under privileged children.






Miss Victoria spent the new year's eve of 2015 on stage contesting for the enviable Miss Tourism International World Pageant title along 62 delegates representing their countries in which she emerged the only African contestant to have emerged among the top ten finalists. Must take loads of confidence to gracefully achieve such milestones, and that confidence carries over into the studio, where during the photo shoot, Vicky was so at ease and dropping those poses like they were hot.... Chioma Igbokwe who handled the styling and wardrobe for this shoot is simply a bundle of creative energy. And her portfolio is amazing
