One of my favorite things about modeling is the ability to travel to new places with your girlfriends and create epic content along the journey. It’s the best of both worlds when you can get work done and explore the world at the same time! I recently went on a trip to Las Vegas on a content creation trip with Park MGM.
On content creation trips in partnership with a brand or hotel, you typically have a scheduled agenda along with specific deliverables to execute! On this specific trip, we shot for Leveret Loungewear, Pretty Little Thing, BooHoo and the Park MGM hotel!
I went on this trip with three of my best friends and some of the most talented content creators I know, Mina Marlena, Cassidy Bliss Cooper, and Ashlynn Grippo. We left Los Angeles on a Friday morning and started our road trip to Vegas! It’s only about a 4-hour drive from LA so we got our morning coffee and began the adventure!
After getting checked into our rooms, we got ready and began the night at the Nomad Bar. This bar was super cute and moody, it had a great ambiance to it. We were all pretty exhausted and hangry girls so we got right to dinner and drinks! Nomad Bar has this signature adorable pink, barbie margarita so we got that and had cute photo moments for the gram after!!
After Nomad Bar, we had another stop in Park MGM at another cute bar called Mama Rabbit! Mama Rabbit was a colorful, vibrant and inviting atmosphere. They had live music and of course, more amaze drinks! Believe it or not, we went to bed right after to make sure we were up and at em for Day 2 with a full day of shooting.
Day 2 began with a quick coffee run to Starbs and off to shoot for the other brands we had on our to-do list! Content creation can be beautiful and glamorous on the gram but behind the scenes of a successful photoshoot requires a lot of planning, coordination and open, collaborative minds. Four people is a great number when doing content creation or photoshoots because you can work together to help one another create concepts, style the looks and shoot the images! Cassidy, Mina, Ashlynn and I worked together great as a team. We all have our separate strengths and together we truly complimented each other to get our best work!
After shooting around the hotel, we hit the strip and got some amazing photos at the Venetian, Eiffel Tower, and the beautiful Bellagio Fountains! Vegas, whether for work or play, has so much to offer! Every time I go I discover places and things to do that I never saw did before. I encourage going and trying something new every time you go, the possibilities are endless!
On Day 3, we had an amazing brunch at Primrose in the Park MGM. We shot more photos and then made our way back to LA. On our road trip back, Mina spotted this amazing road sign, “Jenny Rose” and we decided to make one more pit stop to finish off the trip — these might have been my favorite photos of it all. Sometimes the best photos, experiences, and memories are the ones that are unplanned!
Weekend getaways are always a blast and even more fun when you can do it with creative humans with great energies! Vegas is always fun but I was thrilled to go on such a productive, portfolio building work trip and I can’t wait to go back!
