This tip is going to sound minimal and silly to some…but it has completely changed the way I handle posing at senior sessions (and with couples!). One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is “how do your clients always look so natural in your photos?” While there are quite a few things that […]

It’s that time of year again and I am SO excited to announce the opening of 2018 senior spokesmodel applications-YAY!¬†The Hope Taylor spokesmodel team is a group of local high school seniors that represent the face of Hope Taylor Photography for the duration of their senior year.
