Behind the Scenes – Girls Fashion Photography at TBK
The Orlando girls fashion community is one that we are proud to contribute to. Last month, we took our first steps in Treasure Box Kid’s new direction by debuting two new designs in our Made in the USA line, and the whole process was shot right here in our very own Winter Park, FL.
Along the way, we worked with two marvelous models and our spring interns A-team to help bring our kid’s clothes dreams to life. All of our photo shoots have taken place in the Central Florida area, and in the past, we’ve been active in the Orlando community by hosting other events and fashion shows. To check out one of our past events, read our post on our TBK fashion show-Behind the Scenes.
Our Girls Fashion Photography Team
We’d like to start by thanking our little troopers, who modeled our new blue and pink Isabella dresses, our classic Purple Butterly Capri Pant Set and our Victoria Dress through the Florida weather. Their fabulous work speaks for itself, showing their stellar growth as up-and-coming industry professionals.
Starting the day bright and early, they met us on-site and powered through our photo a video process, all the while staying focused and consistently giving their best. We would also like to thank the wonderful families of our models, who were there every step of the way to root on and encourage their girls.
Working behind the camera were our interns, who set up shop, assisted the models and took pictures for the shoot. With combined efforts in marketing, film, and advertising, they worked as a unit to manage our social channels, assist our models and ensure that all of our photo elements were up to par. In the end, the shoot ran by smoothly thanks to their coordination and dedication.
We would like to give a special thanks to Monique Trevett, our photographer and film intern. She served as the guiding eye to the shoot and worked behind the lens to get the best out of our models. Without her direction, we wouldn’t have our success.
Joining our Girls Fashion Team
Treasure Box Kids has recurringly hosted a models training program, tailored to the needs of those who want to get their start in the girls fashion scene. All of our girls are recruited with their modeling educations in mind, and we are happy to say that we help them gain footing in the industry by garnering exposure, building their portfolios and guiding them through professional modeling environments.

Our amazing new Orlando interns team is helping us kick off the 2018 new year! We’ll be very busy these coming months with the anticipated launch of some exciting new projects, and we couldn’t be happier to do it alongside this group of talented ladies.
In the past, TBK has hosted 3 internship programs a year that provide blossoming young professionals with opportunities to break into the fields of marketing, public relations, social media, video production, and graphic design, among many other areas. Our new crew will be dipping their toes into a little bit of everything, and are encouraged to take initiative within their chosen fields of development. To learn about our program last semester, read our post on our Orlando Internship-Summer 17.
Spring Orlando Interns Program 2018
Introducing the Orlando Interns Team
We’ve selected a diverse group of undergraduates from the University of Central Florida to help tread new ground this Spring. For the next 11 weeks, these gals will be learning the TBK way and putting their energy, passions, and creative skills to work in a number of hands-on roles. We’re confident in our choices for the Orlando Interns program. Here’s why:
Monique Trevett, a film major with a focus in cinema studies, will be working on video production, photography and content creation for our website and social media channels. She’s a member of the UCF chapter of Zeta Phi Eta, an avid traveler, and connoisseur of music. We’re grateful to have her unique eye on our side.
Nicole Fletcher will be assisting in all things marketing, working with our team to launch our new clothing lines, direct our sales approach, and target social media efforts. Graduating this semester with a degree in business and a minor in mass communication, she hopes to hone her skills and pursue a career in marketing and advertising.
Sheila Alexis is an English creative writing major with a minor in mass communication. She will be the primary manager of our social media channels. As a tech-savvy creative that hopes to work in the public relations side of the fashion industry, we’re elated that she’s chosen us to cap off her last semester at UCF.
Danna Saenz is an advertising and public relations major who will be joining our writing department this semester. She will put her skills to the test by creating posts for our blog and social media accounts, as well helping manage our PR efforts. She is also pursuing a second degree in English literature, and we’re confident it will complement her role here at TBK.

We strive to Make A Difference in the world every day through our clothing lines. I was recently featured on Making A Difference,an afternoon radio segment hosted by Suzanne and Shadow at Z88.3 in Orlando, Florida. It served as a good learning experience for Aly Lewis, who has been working with Treasure Box Kids as the public relations liaison intern for Treasure Box Kids. Making a Difference is a short afternoon segment that airs every Tuesday at 4:55 P.M. The segment features local business people or volunteers that are truly making a difference in the community and in the world. It was an honor to be featured in one of the segments this past month. You can listen to my interview here:

Being able to share what my company does to Make A Difference on this segment was a unique experience. It was a fun and exciting thing to be able to share my experience as well as my passion for helping people with my fellow listeners of Z88.3. As heard in the interview, I touched on the efforts that Treasure Box Kids as a company is making in the local community and the great strides that we have made in Kenya to help women who are in need.

The process was so much fun and went by smoothly! Aly and I arrived at the studio at 1:00 P.M. We were warmly greeted by different staff members, all as friendly as the last. The reception room was very comfortable and pleasant. When Suzanne and Shadow were ready for us, we followed them back into one of their recording studios. They showed a great passion for the good of the community and also showed genuine interest in the things I was saying. It was heartwarming to see the kind of a family setting I’ve imagined while listening to their radio station.
Make A Difference With Z88.3
I have been a regular listener of Z88.3 for a few years now. I spend a great deal of time driving in high-stress traffic situations on my commute in the mornings and evenings. This radio station helps make the commute less stressful, through their music that is very calming, uplifting, and inspirational. The hosts remind me with their encouraging words that I am not alone on this journey of life.
It was a blessing to have been a part of the Z88.3 family during my interview experience. I can’t thank Suzanne and Shadow enough for giving me the opportunity to share my ability to Make A Difference on this afternoon segment!

Cute Girls Modeling Treasure Box Kids Styles
Orlando Kids Model at Winter Park Village
We chose the Winter Park Village for our monthly photoshoot due to the playful atmosphere and Regal Cinemas for their decorative party room. The girls were styled and photographed outside in the courtyard where the they played with a life-size chessboard and also in the Regal Cinema’s party room.
Amid all the inevitable excitement from our models, there is much to be done the morning of a photoshoot. Tasks not limited to, getting all the dresses steamed to perfection, making sure that all the needed props are in order and entertaining for the girls. Most importantly making sure our TBK models are taken care of and ready for their time to shine. After arriving, models were immediately styled and ready for their close up. Our Treasure Box Kids interns assisted with steaming the garments and dressing the models as well as assiting the photographer. After a morning filled with giggles, excitement and laughs the photoshoot was wrapped up and a huge success.
Treasure Box Kids thoroughly enjoyed working with the mothers and their daughters during this photoshoot. A huge thank you to them for their participation and awesome cooperation throughout the shoot.
