Being Miss Maumee Valley

More Photos from MMV, MAAC and MVOT!

For those of you who couldn’t attend the show, the special cameo role I mentioned was my longtime beau, Loren, playing Howie Mendel for the “Deal or No Deal” theme. For having next to no stage experience and only a days notice, I thought he did amazing! He was also the official photographer. In balancing those two responsibilities, he was not able to capture every woman in every phase of competition. Nor was he able to get the settings on his fancy camera perfected. So the photos are not as wonderful as what he took at Miss Ohio, but they’re better than nothing! Check them out in my new Webshots albums by clicking below:

Competition Photos

Crowning Photos

Note, Webshots has changed some of its features, and I absolutely hate it! You can still save these photos to your own computer, but it takes a few more steps… When you first click on an album you want to view, all the photos will come up as thumbnails… Click on a specific photo to enlarge it… under each enlarged photo there will be several options in the form of icons… Click on the second icon from the left to “view the photo full size.” By doing that the photo should pop up in its own window. From there you can right click to “copy” or “save” it. These are high quality, large photos which do not forward easily via email. Also, some of them need to be brightness balanced and cropped, but to get them on the internet faster I did not do any such editing.

To answer the person who commented below, yes, of course my wonderful parents were there to watch me give up my final title! I couldn't have done any of it without them.


  • Gosh, Abby, what can I say? It has been so much fun supporting and watching you throughout your 5 wonderful years of competition! I will definately miss you competing! I can't wait until our program! We are going to have a great time!!!
    Love and Hugs,

  • Abby,
    I think you look more like your Mom in this picture with Loren.
    Was your Mom and Dad there when you give up the grown and your last walk across the stage.
    I hope there was no speeding tickets this time.
