2016 Senior Studio Party Recap Seniors

Styled Shoots

On Sunday I hosted my second annual Senior Studio Party and it was incredible!! I host this event each year for my past, present and future Hope Taylor seniors to come together and celebrate their senior year. It’s an opportunity to meet new friends in the area, say hi if they are planing to apply for next year’s spokesmodel program and have FUN! We spent the night eating delicious candy, taking pictures in the photobooth, watching Molly from Sugar Soiree spin flavored cotton candy, being photographed on the pink carpet, participating in fun giveaways and more! This candy-themed event could not have been possible without The Caroline Doll-she put together all of the beautiful details and I’m so grateful for her!!!

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to  my other fave sponsors: Twila & Co, Monkee’s of Fredericksburg + Peacaloo Boutique for providing such fun giveaways! This event would not have been possible without these amazing ladies!!! I was so surprised by this year’s turnout and so grateful for each of the sweet girls who came by and celebrated with us! Enjoy some of my favorite’s from this year’s event!!
