Connick graduated from New Canaan High School in 2015 and was on the honor roll. Her next move was to New Orleans, where her father grew up. Younger sister Kate explained in a 2019 interview that the family visited New Orleans often and it felt like a second home. “I love visiting my grandparents and cousins who live there. I grew up going to Mardi Gras and saints games and particularly like everything from the food, culture, and music of New Orleans,” Kate Connick said. “I consider myself to be from New Orleans as much as I am from Connecticut.”
Georgia Connick enrolled at Tulane University but stayed for only one year. She transferred to New York University, where she studied photography and filmmaking at the Tisch School Of The Arts. Her LinkedIn profile appears to be outdated; the profile states she is still a student but her professional website refers to her time at NYU in the past tense.
During her college years, Connick worked as a bartender in both New Canaan and New York City. Her LinkedIn profile notes she worked as a bartender and server at Gates in New Canaan and Mad River Bar & Grille in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
Connick has been living in New York City for the past few years, describing the city on her professional website as “the love of my life.” She explained in the “about me” section of the site that she figured out at a young age that she wanted to pursue photography as a career:
I have always been obsessed with art and the idea of capturing special moments in time. I discovered photography at a young age and knew I had a passion when I spent all of my free time on the computer editing what I had captured earlier that day. I have developed a dense portfolio over the years filled with travel, architecture, fashion, nature, and really anything that catches my eye.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Connick has been a freelance photographer and videographer since 2015. She listed the CBS Corporation as one of her clients. Connick wrote that she provided photography and editing services for the network’s social media content.
Connick is also the owner of her own company. According to public records with the Connecticut Secretary of State’s office, she registered “Chocogo LLC” in 2018.
The Connick family appears to be a close bunch. Georgia Connick frequently posts photos of her parents and sisters on Instagram. She shared a few updates from the road as she and her father traveled the country in May for the United We Sing special for CBS. She snapped a selfie of the two of them wearing masks and wrote in the caption, “nothing better than traveling with my best friend.” On May 13, Connick posted a picture of the RV, explaining that this was “home for the next two weeks.”
Connick is a strong supporter of her dad’s career. She wrote that she was “so beyond proud” when Connick Jr. received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2019. On Father’s Day in 2015, Connick noted she was in Paris with her father and wrote that he was her “hero, inspiration, and best friend. I can’t imagine a more perfect place to be on this special day.”
