This weekend Rose Gold Studio opened its glittery gold doors to our ATL friends to come and sip on mimosas, mingle, make new friends, and of course grab a head shot.
In honor of our studio opening in the same month that we celebrate Small Business Saturday, we wanted to celebrate other small businesses at the same time. We had so much fun and are so thankful to everyone who came. We cant wait to do it again! Here are a few of the awesome entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, hustlers and boss babes that came out to celebrate Rose Gold Studio's opening + small business! Cheers xx
Also special thanks to Rose Gold Studio member Porsha Thomas, founder of Ladypreneur League, for being a stellar bartender :)
