Dylan’s Candy Bar | Workshop Styled Shoot

Senior Sessions


Wow…I can’t even describe how amazing today was! I held my very own workshop in my home (my first one!) to teach fellow young photographers about how to use their cameras and how to kick start their very own businesses! We had an amazing time and I was so blessed to be able to work with seven fabulous and incredibly talented girls! Tomorrow’s blog post is going to be all about what we did, what they learned and how the workshop went, so stay tuned for that! But tonight I want to share something but I’ve been working hard on for a very long time and I’m SO excited about!

For the second half of our workshop, I organized my very first styled shoot (AH!) and it was Dylan’s Candy Bar themed! For those who haven’t been there, Dylan’s Candy Bar is an AMAZING candy store in the heart of NYC and I have ALWAYS loved it! I’ve worked for weeks with my amazing momma to put this all together and I couldn’t be happier with the results! All hair and makeup was done by the fabulous Makeup by Allyson and all styling and design of the candy bar was done by myself and my mom! Our three gorgeous models; Stephany, Madi and Rachel, did a FABULOUS job and we had such a great time!

Enjoy some of my favorites below and let me know what you think!
