I recently had the pleasure of photographing Jennifer Wakefield, Mrs Maryland 2019 at our studio, Visual Concepts Photography located in the Greater Annapolis and Anne Arundel County. Such a great opportunity and honor to get to know her and to photograph her. Jennifer is an inspiration to me and all that know her. She’s the REAL DEAL!! In her own words:
Jennifer is the reigning Mrs. Maryland International 2019, having been crowned by her husband and Mrs. Maryland International 2018 on March 2, 2019…25 years and 14 pageants is what it took before finally being crowned!! She placed 1st runner up at IJM Mom, 2nd runner up to Mrs. Maryland United States 2018 and 3rd Runner up and Mrs. Photogenic at Mrs. Maryland International 2017. She is a pageant mom to her two daughters who have both won state/regional titles, she has coached, judged and is an avid pageant enthusiast.
Community Involvement/platform: As a 6 year breast cancer survivor Jennifer’s platform is Life after treatment…breast cancer is not the end. Jennifer lends her time to the American Cancer Society volunteering weekly with their Moving Forward Together 3 and Reach to Recovery programs. Jennifer volunteers for and donated $1K to the local Central MD charity For 3 Sisters and will be speaking at their annual fundraiser the end of April 2019. Jennifer appeared on and spoke at the USA television Channel 9 in October 2018 for their inaugural Breast Cancer Awareness day. Jennifer had the distinct honor of speaking at the National Press Club in May 2018 about her journey and now volunteer with breast cancer. Jennifer is passionate about giving back to the community that was there for her during her treatment and attributes pageantry for the many opportunities given to her to reach out to the public.
