Cotton Candy Couture Senior Shoot Hope Taylor Workshop

Senior Sessions

Last week, I shared a recap of the Hope Taylor Workshop and earlier this week, I shared the Marie Antoinette Inspired shoot from day one! Today, I’m so excited to be sharing the Cotton Candy Couture inspired shoot from day two of the workshop experience! Day one of the workshop is all about wedding days, and day two is all about senior portraits: in-studio styling, senior spokesmodel teams, creating a client experience, building a brand, posing, lighting and more. Caroline put together another jaw-dropping shoot for this day and I am so thankful for her and the creative team!

Five of my beautiful senior spokesmodels modeled for the day and we had so much fun with the bright, joyful feel of this shoot! From cotton candy to cupcakes to glitter to fluffy flowers…this shoot had everything a girl could want! AND, to top it all off, the entire wardrobe was provided by VICI – my absolute favorite online boutique! Seriously a dream come true!

HUGE thank you to all of the vendors who collaborated on day two to make this shoot come to life:

Venue: Mary Washington Jepson Center | Planning: The Caroline Doll | Rentals: White Glove Rentals | Hair and makeup: Hello Darling Beauty | Wardrobe: VICI | Florals: Amanda Veronee
