Oh hey! Welcome!
I’m thrilled to have you here.
First off, I want to thank you. Thank you for taking a moment out of your day to get to know a little bit about who I am and what I do best. Let’s get started, shall we?
Listen, I know searching through endless photographers and their websites is overwhelming to say the least. How do you decide who to trust? Who’s going to have your back through one of the most important days of your life? More importantly, who the HECK is going to make sure you’re having the time of your life while capturing it all unfold? I absolutely LIVE for what I do. The people I get to hang out with and the moments I get to capture is so invaluable to me. That is why I take it ALL on for YOU!
“Who the heck is Tay and why am I still here?”
I am all about love, laughter, adventure, and all things music. More importantly, I am all about the authentic moments that write our story.
During your session I want you to feel like your best friend is behind the camera- because, to be honest, we probably will be even before we start…It is so important to me that you are as comfortable AS possible. So if that means an in-home session dancing to your favorite jams and snuggles on the couch then COUNT ME IN! Capturing genuine, heartfelt moments as they unfold is my jam. This is your moment, your day, your story. It’s my job to observe and preserve.
A lot of what I remember from my childhood is grabbing whatever camera I had access to, taking random “snapshots” of my family, and immediately running up to my room to go through all of them (fun fact: the camera I usually ended up grabbing was my Mom’s polaroid that I still use to this day #retro). As I would scramble through these photographs, I thought there was no better feeling. WRONG.
The best feeling is looking back on these memories thirteen years later, holding them in my hands, feeling the exact same way I felt in that moment. This is what fills my heart. This feeling is why I do what I do, and I want to give that to as many people as I possibly can. When you look back to the photos from your wedding day, I want you to feel the way they held you in the middle of a room filled with all of your favorite humans. When you pull out the baby book as your oldest graduates, you will remember how small their precious hands were and that notorious baby scent. These are the moments you need to take with you through this beautiful life.
Uhm, yes! CONGRATULATIONS! This is such an exciting time to remember and to celebrate. Before wedding planning takes the wheel, let’s just take a minute to let it all sink in; you are marrying your best friend, the love of your life, your person. An engagement session is the perfect way to celebrate. Let’s make a day of it. Plan a day where you both can be as present as possible. We can spend some time wherever you guys love to be (traveling is always encouraged!) doing whatever you love to do. After, you guys can hit up that new restaurant you have been wanting to try or go home and get back into those sweatpants just to Netflix & Chill.
Planning your wedding?
YAY! Congratulations! When you think about your wedding photos, what do you absolutely NEED captured? The quiet moments leading up to the most beautiful celebration of your love? What about right after you say ‘I do’ when you sneak away together and all the feels set in? Okay, but what about when you see each other for the first time and all of those nerves fall to the ground? If you know for a fact that these are the memories you need to look back on twenty years from now and feel all the feels, then I am your girl!!! Your wedding day is the time to be present and celebrate your love for one another. Leave the rest to me. Let me capture all of the beautiful moments that fill your day and turn these moments into memories.
Welcoming a new addition to your family?
Can we just take a moment to recognize all of the AMAZING-ness that is parenthood? You are literally bringing the most precious human into this world to love them more than you ever thought physically possible. Everyone says not to blink and they’re right, but I am here to make sure you have ALL of those photos of how you held them in your arms and the way they barely fit in that onesie your mom bought when she first heard you were pregnant. It is so important to be present with your family as your children grow into the amazing individuals you are going to raise them to be, and that is what your session should be about. Let’s get cozy in your home, whip out the family favorite blanket, and have some fun!
I am all about that. Show yourself a little self-love, you deserve it. Whether it’s for your brand or just because you want to treat yourself, let’s have some fun doing whatever you love doing most. Before I started capturing rad couples and families I worked with a lot of upcoming artists and businesses to help them connect with their network and reconnect with themselves. That is most definitely a huge part of who I am as a photographer today. To this day, I always find time for these sessions because they truly resonate with what I love to do. This is the foundation of what started it all. I promise to capture the most genuine version of you while having a blast at the same time.
