CLIC Conference | Alexandria, VA



Buying a ticket to the CLIC Conference in Alexandria was the first thing I did after I made the decision to stay home instead of attending RU! I had wanted to attend ever since I saw the announcement for the conference…but I would have been on my way to Redford on the second day so I wouldn’t have been able to go. Let me tell you…I am SO excited that I was able to attend!! From the phenomenal speakers, amazing friendships, gorgeous styled shoot and delicious meals…it was SO much fun!!

The first day of the conference was full of amazing speakers who spoke about pricing, styling, branding, balancing life + business and more! We got some adorable goodie bags (they were AQUA!) and had a delicious lunch (+ cupcakes!!) The second day consisted of more speakers (including Katelyn James…so amazing!!) and a GORGEOUS styled shoot! Kaitlin of Kaitlin Holland Creative did a PHENOMENAL job!

I am so thrilled that I had the opportunity to attend this year’s CLIC conference and I only hope to attend next year’s! Check out some of my fave images from the styled shoot below as well as some behind the scenes iPhone shots 🙂



Behind the scenes!! All of these shots came straight from my Instagram! Feel free to follow me @hopetaylorphotography to keep up with my crazy day-to-day life!
