Photography Question 

Beauty Pageant Portraits

Hello, I was recently contact by a couple asking to photograph the wife for a beauty pageant that she is entering. This is out of my 'comfort zone' (shall I since I'm used to photographing babies and weddings. I thought I would look to all of you for any pointers or suggestions you might have (posing, specific lighting, etc). I have reflectors, white umbrella, soft box and will be purchasing a silver umbrella & reflector. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

  Did they give you any information about the pageant, or if there was a website with entry guidelines, etc?

It sure would help if you could see examples of what the pageant is looking for. (headshot, full-length in gown, swimsuit, etc.)

Try to get as much info as you can.
