Destination Costa Rica!!

Costa Rica!  There is not much more to say than that… I have been granted the opportunity to be Candice’s assistant for the past several months, working alongside her and learning so much about this industry and the creative process that she puts into everything.  Less than a week after she returned from Paris, we set off to head down to Costa Rica for yet another incredible project.  Amidst the lizards, crocodiles, and beautiful sun, Candice and her main core…
