HTP Studio Launch Party #HTPSeniors

Senior Sessions

After two years of doing senior sessions with SO many amazing #htpseniors, I started brainstorming a way to bring all of them together. All of my seniors have so many things in common and I thought that, if I could somehow bring everyone together, they would all immediately become friends. So, as I was brainstorming on this idea, I thought about the possibility of hosting a studio “open house” for my past senior clients. But then, after chatting with Caroline of Posh PR, the event that was initially supposed to be an invite-only get-together for 20 of my seniors turned into a HUGE Studio Launch Party!!! As Caroline and I emailed more and more about the details, it became something AMAZING!!

Caroline and I worked together to create a night that would be so much fun!! She styled an amazing ice cream topping bar, a beautiful Photo Booth and tons of beautiful details! We had incredible giveaways from the best sponsors around (read the list at the end of the post!!) and ended up having over FIFTY girls (and guys!!) in attendance!! They arrived on our pink carpet that we had rolled out front and spent two hours getting to know each other, snapping selfies + winning giveaway prizes! It was the BEST night + I just adore each and every one of my seniors, I’m so thankful for them all!

Enjoy some of my favorites from our evening + some fun shots from the #htpstudioparty hashtag!!


Instagram shots are the best!!! Be sure to follow @hopetaylorphotography on Instagram to follow along on my adventures + take a peek at the #htpstudioparty hashtag to see more from our party!!


Thank you so much to all of these amazing vendors for helping me make the night happen!
