Dream Team: Galentine's Day

Galentine’s Day. It originated from a 2010 parks and rec episode but has become so much more! Even retailers like Target have started offering decor for the new holiday! It’s a day all about friendship, girls supporting girls, and community. Yes hello the Dream Team is ALL about that!!!

We didn’t have waffles but we did make friendship bracelets to give out to friends and family. It’s important to the team that we do random acts of kindness style projects, and this was our first one for the year. Some of the girls were doing complicated six or eight strand bracelets but I stuck with a much more simple option haha. It was a great time for the girls to chat and get to know each other more while doing something good for our friends and family.

We also had an impromptu pop up valentines day photo shoot! I’m still finding confetti at the studio!

Introducing (most of) the 2019 Dream Team!

Introducing (most of) the 2019 Dream Team!

A week or so ago eleven girls poured into my studio in Huntington. A couple dream team alumni but mostly new faces from HNHS, and even two new schools: Norwell high school and Central Noble high school. Many of the girls didn’t know each other yet but I was so impressed with how kind and open they all were to each other.

Before the welcome party the girls and I were joking about a meme I saw where everyone had a presentation on a topic they loved; that turned into us doing ‘about me’ powerpoints at the party. It was surprisingly so fun and a great way for us all to introduce ourselves (and show off our pets haha).

We talked about our plans and ideas for the year and the girls voted on photo shoot themes and service projects and for our destination photo shoot location! This is the first year the dream team is doing a destination photo shoot and I am so looking forward to it! I love offering this experience to the girls, I don’t think it’s something that anyone else is doing in our area!

We finished the welcome party with Favorite Things photos and head shots of each of the girls, and of course a group photo! I’m beyond excited for this year’s Dream Team, I can’t wait for all the amazing events we have planned for the year and to grow closer as a team!

I intended to limit the team to ten girls this year because, honestly, my studio is hella tiny. But so many amazing girls applied that I had twelve that I just couldn’t turn away. One of the girls couldn’t make it to the welcome party because she wanted to spend her birthday with her family … which I guess is fair ;) It makes for a tight fit at some of our events but I can’t imagine the team without a single one of these girls. Each one brings a unique perspective and personality to the mix and as a whole makes the team so perfect.
