Chaz Taylor Mini Shoot- Monarch Rooftop Lounge by Allyse Francis

Chaz Taylor- New York City

It was a blustery February evening when I did 3 mini shoots for NYC Bloggers. The first up was Chaz Taylor, a model, content creator, and real estate agent in New York City. He wore a gorgeous red and black animal print suit from Zara, and a black turtle neck from Rag and Bone. He attracted quite a lot of attention from the ladies with his outfit and his cheekbones. Chaz had such good energy, and I absolutely adore him and the vibe he brought to the shoot!!

The NYC Brunch Squad met up one New York morning in Chelsea to dine at the quaint, yet elegant, While We Were Young. From the cocktails and food to the decorations it was an incredible event to photograph.

A MASSIVE “Thank You” goes out to Mr. Darrow Beach who created the signature cocktails of the morning. They were unique, colorful, and (most importantly) they tasted incredible!

Final Thoughts

While We Were Young NYC is a treat to visit. It’s a unique and trendy boutique restaurant that offers a great photograph-able experience for anyone who wants to add a little atmosphere to their dining experience. It is on the pricier side, but I do think that it is well worth the experience
