YOU WERE MADE FOR THIS.
I believe we each have a calling in life; an irresistible tug that never seems to subside, no matter how much we try to ignore it or how busy we find ourselves each day.
I believe you were meant to listen to that little voice.
I believe the world deserves to experience it.
And I believe my calling is to help you get there.
I‘m Taylor. I’m a photographer, educator, and business coach. I’m also a wife, a proud mama to two little boys, and I spend my mornings sipping coffee with the five alpacas outside my back door. But no matter how I attempt to define myself, one of the greatest joys in my life is helping fellow women define and discover themselves, and to help guide their photographic calling in life.
For the past decade, I’ve had the honor of spending thousands of hours behind the camera, capturing love stories, photographing miracles, and witnessing genuine happiness. Leaving behind a corporate career, this calling in life has allowed me to live the life of my choosing. It has given me the freedom to provide for my family while giving me the time to be present with them. To get paid to travel the world. To work when I want. To spend time outdoors. To practice yoga. To watch my boys grow. To embrace this life.
I’m here to to help you live the life of your own choosing.
I want to but
WHERE DO I EVEN START?
Taking the leap towards your calling can feel overwhelming.
I hear you, girl. I’ve been there. When I quit my corporate career, I had less than $300 in my savings account, an empty fridge, a tiny apartment, and a huge amount of anxiety. In my heart, I knew it was the right decision. But that did little to ease the terror in my mind. Truth be told, I launched my photography career completely blind. No clients, no website, and no plan. And I learned a lot of lessons along the way.
Now my wish is to share those lessons with you.
The Launch to Livelihood course is specifically designed to transform those feelings of uncertainty and fear into feelings of empowerment. To provide you with the knowledge and the unexpected secrets that will give you complete confidence in the journey you’re embarking on. To take the salary you may be leaving behind and replace it with an even higher income doing what you love.
I’m here to teach you what I’ve learned from shooting more than 250 weddings, thousands of portrait sessions, and making an annual six-figure living within two years of launching. I’m going to show you the path to achieve not only financial success and abundance, but to find genuine fulfillment in turning your love for photography into a livelihood that allows you to live life on your terms. And I’m going to teach you how to do it in a way that’s completely authentic to you, and you alone.
I believe the time to start is now. And I believe in you.
“Taylor is the most authentic, genuine, and wonderful person. She is setting the standard for how we should treat one another, run legit businesses, how to treat our clients, and is making the world a better place because of that.”
“Thank you for being a wonderful role model for me and helping put well trained and supportive photographers out into the photographer community. (Yes, I’m crying while writing this). Thank you for sharing all of your knowledge and being super accessible to answer all of our questions.”
-Kelsey, Forevergreen Photography

The first steps in our journey together will be dedicated to discovery. Discovering your strengths, your priorities, your values, what makes you tick, and what brings you joy. Together, we’ll translate these discoveries into your business in order to hone in on your ideal client who shares similar attributes and values.
This will arguably be the most challenging but defining section as it revolves around self-discovery and the critical role it will play in your business. We will talk about the hard topics, invite others in, and dig deep to create a solid foundation that you’re proud to build your business on.
Discovering your “why” will provide you with a reliable compass to turn to when you encounter the challenging decisions and the defining moments involved with your business.
Building on the foundation we laid in the discovery section, our emphasis on design will go far beyond the actual look of your business. While your business’s brand identity, marketing materials, and website design are each critical in their own rights, they’re only one of the several pillars we will cover in this chapter.
Design encompasses not only the look of your business, but the feel. What is your client experience like? How will your ideal clients find you based on the design of your business? How will you convey what your core values are in each element of your business?
Why will people come back to you for years to support your business? How does your financial plan come into play for your photography pricing? Furthermore, what does the design of your own dream life look like and how does your business fit into it?
Together, based on your ideal client, we’ll design an inviting space on your website to encourage engagement and bookings from your ideal client. This lesson will be one of the most important as it is the invitation to your clients into the “living room” of your business.
In our modern world, marketing is becoming both easier and harder simultaneously. It’s easier because you simply need to show up and be yourself; it’s harder because you simply need to show up and be yourself. People don’t hire businesses anymore; they hire people. Here we will also dive into the power of social media and leveraging everything we’ve worked on up to this point in order to convey that in your brand. I’ll teach you the most critical lessons and actionable steps involved in turning your followers into loyal and paying clients.
It’s here that we will also work to reveal your story and beautifully weave it with your talent in order to ensure you’re working with the clients that are going to inspire you to grow.
As we progress, we’ll dive into how to handle your workflow so you can focus on shooting and creating stunning images, and immerse ourselves into the actual execution of marketing and social media strategies, the role of your branding in your business, and the details of your client experience.
Your relentless drive, careful nurturing, and unbridled passion will fuel your business to places you’ve never imagined. Our final weeks will be focused on growth and setting your business up for sustainable and fulfilling success.
We’ll cover the importance of goal setting, habit development, and setting your intentions for your business and financial growth. We will zero in on the importance of implementing tools for exponential growth, and we’ll discuss ways you can set yourself up for sustainable success and financial freedom by transforming your client experience.
When our coaching time is finished, rest assured that you’ll never be in this business alone. I’ll continue to be your personal cheerleader, celebrating in your wins and supporting you in your trials and tribulations long after our Launch to Livelihood course has completed.

“I can’t say this enough, but Tay, you literally changed my life! Instead of being afraid of creating a business that I didn’t think anyone would ever use, I am now so excited and optimistic for the future!”
“I was a little nervous, even scared. I didn’t know if this would help me, if I would actually get anything out of it, especially a business. I would not have actually committed to making this business without you. For the first time, I’m excited to work on my business and am going to do everything possible to make it happen. And I’m finally confident about what I’m doing. Thank you!”
