This was the most fun I’ve had in months! It was great to meet new girls who are into the IG/influencer space. Rae gave so much direction and had me try poses I never thought to try before & the photos turned out amazing!!! Highly recommend! :)

Rae and Alyssa's Airbnb experience was so fun !! I joined the larger group session and absolutely loved it ! We met up at a cafe to chat for a bit while we waited for everyone to join and then all walked over to each location in SoHo (3 in total but there were more little spots that you could shoot for a different vibe at each as well which was great!) They were super helpful and patient with all of us and gave lots of tips and tricks to get the shot. They really knew "all the angles"! Would highly recommend this expereince to anyone, especially those visiting nyc and want to get some cool "blogger-like" pictures as well as anyone who wants to connect with/network with other up and coming bloggers and learn from the nicest girls who are familiar with the IG blogger world! Everyone was so friendly and the energy was great :)

Rae is super sweet and very dedicated to helping you get the best pictures! Not only did I walk away with stunning photos, but she shared tips and tricks on posing and angles that I know are going to improve how I take my own photos in the future. 10/10 recommend!

I signed up to learn about the photo process/influencer world and to meet new people and I did all of that plus got great photos. Rae and Alyssa shared all the insider tips like lighting, location, angles, etc. I highly recommend this experience!
