While I was on assignment in August shooting stills and video for Newsday of pageant coach and Long Island-native Chris Saltalamacchio, there was an interesting moment when 2013 Miss Connecticut Kaitlyn Tarpey looked back at herself in the mirror while practicing for the Miss America contest. Of all the shots, I think this one best showed the vulnerable (?) side of the pageant contestant, and it stuck with me. Chris and Kaitlyn were great and really helpful, and it was fun to see a bit of the preparation that goes on before the show. Newsday writer Joe Amodio’s article is here (sorry, paywall).
…and the video, thanks:
