Hello Everyone! I am absolutely thrilled to introduce you all to the next model for an EventswithDakota workshop in Manhattan: Liv Sage/Asmallwoman!

It is such an honor to have her modeling for this event! She is one of the most talented models in the industry and has a powerful presence. Her ability to emote and captivate is unparalleled.

She is also an accomplished photographer who is experienced in shooting other models and also self-portraits.

To see her work, feel free to follow these links: or on IG at

Date and Time: Sunday, March 24th from 11-2 pm at a private and beautiful apartment in Manhattan. Address given only to those who sign up.

Please click on link HERE to pay deposit. Space is very limited: there will only be 5 photographer max, ensuring a smooth and easy-going event with plenty of opportunity for people to get beautiful photos.

Structure: We will have some fill light for the space, but this is predominantly a natural light workshop. We are not paparazzi style for this event and will operate on a lead timer. Content will be up to fine art portraits and we will have wardrobe available that suits the location, please review Liv’s website to get an idea of her limits.

Self Portrait of Chelsea Smarr

Workshop with Chelsea Smarr, Dakota, and New Model Peith in Historic Harpers Ferry Home

I am so excited to announce two models brand new to Events with Dakota: Chelsea Smarr and Peith! I recently met Chelsea, who is an accomplished harpist as well, at an event and instantly connected with her! She is a creative force and I think the location will suit her style perfectly! Here is her facebook to see more of her work:

Peith is a model brand new to modeling but already doing very well! This is her first workshop so I’m going to keep the ratio minimal so that things are mellow and easy going for everyone. Let’s give her a warm and kind welcome into this fantastic community.

The event will include a mix of charming wardrobe to suit the style of the space and artistic figure work as well. Please look below for images of the location.

Dakota Snow will also be modeling for this event to keep things at a mellow ratio- I am allowing up to 8 photographers in attendance split between the two models with Dakota jumping in to shoot part of the time as well. I (Dakota) will not be modeling the entire time as I am also assuring that things are running smoothly and that lighting will be taken care of (if needed)

Lighting will be predominantly natural light with a couple lights and reflectors for fill, as needed.

Rules for the event: I have been informed by the airbnb host of this beautiful home that we cannot “tape, hang, or otherwise attach anything to any part of the house.” She is also requesting that things be moved very sparingly or not at all. Please do not move anything without asking me (Dakota Snow) first. The items in the house are very old and fragile and thus we must take extra caution to be careful since she is gracious enough to let us shoot in her home. As usual, limits of the model and event theme respected at all times or you will be unable to attend future events.

Date and time: February 23rd, 2019 at 12-3 pm. Photographers: please arrive an hour to half hour early to look over the location and to go over details of the event. We will have 3 hours of shooting time and will allow a 10 min grace period after 12 to wait, but otherwise we will go straight into shooting.

Location: A private residence near Harpers Ferry/Charles Town, West Virginia area.

Cost: $200 to attend the event with three models during a three hour workshop at an amazing location. A non refundable deposit of $100 required to reserve space to the event with the remaining balance due at the event in either cash or Venmo. Deposit can be paid HERE. Deposits will be refunded if the event cancels and in the case of inclement weather if you cannot make the reschedule date (let’s hope it doesn’t come to that). Photographers! I will be staying here the entire weekend. If you are interested in staying at this location the whole weekend, there is a separate price. The perks of staying here the whole weekend are…getting to shoot here the whole weekend! Food, creating, and connecting with friends in a beautiful location! The models will not be included outside of the event, however you are welcome to shoot a model of your choosing at the location and if I am available I can model briefly here and there, no long durations please as the idea is to just hang and shoot and keep things mellow. Reach out to see prices and more information on doing a weekend getaway here which includes the workshop at a discounted rate! There are already only 2 bedrooms left out of 5 available (since I am staying in one), so please let me know sooner rather than later. Any more questions, please reach out to me at
