The planning, details, and execution are those that you would find in a top chef or a composer. It's an obsession of Taylor's to be better every single time she picks up the camera. Her thought process starts with 'what can I take from the conversation with my client in the pre-consultation and pour more into, to go beyond their expectations'.
Taylor is visually stimulated by various layers of life. Music, art, textiles, food. It's consumption of all those layers in the world that intertwine with her thoughts, desires, and her work.
Taylor brings back craftsmanship in photography that has been lost over the years. She has an obsession with celebrating the very person she sees. It's a rare gift and one that most spend a lifetime searching for. Taylor looks beyond the lens and her own eyes. She has intuition and creative soul that can see what you can't see in yourself.
Her clients find themselves looking at their portraits like they are seeing who they are for the first time.
Taylor has worked on significant projects over the last 20 plus years as a photographer and over the last several years she has been mesmerized and moved to watch her subject transcend in their sessions. She pours her heart into every single session. Taylor's passion is to have this experience to be one of the best in her client's life. From the first time they talk to every time they see their portrait, she wants a warm and loving smile to greet them.
She is presently taking on speaking engagements, commercial assignments, and on location sessions throughout the world. My passion for photography, coaching, speaking, selling my artwork globally and leading exclusive creativity workshops are just a few things I have my hands in.
Her photographs unfailingly opened a window to the interior lives of her subjects, who range from basketball players, boardrooms, to the mother wearing many hats for her family.

I have been fascinated by the transformative power of styling hair and applying makeup from the time I first saw my grandmother set her pin curls and then apply lipstick without using a mirror. From that moment on I was hooked, so it’s no surprise that I made a career helping others put their best looks forward. I have spent many years training and working in the hot beds of the industry including New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco just to name a few. My training and natural eye for the perfect look make a fantastic mashup that helps me create a unique look for each one of my clients whether in the salon, on location at a photoshoot or styling a gorgeous wedding.
I am passionate about leaving this place better than I arrived, and in doing so, I have a strong connection with the following non-profits. We strive to share their passion and what they do daily to help others.
