Well hello there!

I’m Taisley.

Nice to meetcha!

dsc_4025editsmall taisleyinaction img_1101family

Writing an “about me” page gives me rosy cheeks, but since we will be spending a lot of quality time together there are a few things you should know about me besides the obvious…. I love LOVE love photography! I am continually honored to be chosen as your photographer. Thank you for your trust and friendship.

When I’m not taking pictures of your loved ones… I am taking pictures of mine. My sweet better half and I have been married 15 years. Which can’t be possible, but we have 4 beautiful kiddos as proof so somewhere along the line we blinked.

This 4’11” southern girl at heart loves crab legs, a good read, lightning bugs, cotton fields, vintage design, midnight snacks, sleeping in, red lipstick and I think the heated blanket is pretty much the best invention of all time.

In my “free time” you will find me watching The Amazing Race or knee deep in a DIY project that I just decided to do 2 minutes ago. I love making old things new again. Projects,tasks, and systems are my hobbies.

I grumble at slow internet, I put off mopping my floor, and I don’t understand fruitcakes…why?

Well I guess we should get technical.

I started taking pictures after taking my firstborn son to a well known portrait studio in town. I left with horribly empty feelings. I hated everything about it. The creativity was stale, the props were cheesy, the photographers were pushy and I really wanted to jump in front of that girl and just do it myself.

So I did.

I started my own gig in 2008 & I should thank my loyal circle of friends and family who have been my guinea pigs over and over and over. I have this fancy website now and my business grows every year. I am truly blessed.

I love me some good light and non-stop shutter sounds!

I shot Nikon for years and now I shoot Canon.

I get a little gitty waiting for a session to import from my camera to my computer. I thought after so many sessions it would start to rub off, but it hasn’t.

I love old film tones and I strive to keep your images vibrant but authentic. I DO NOT over edit. For example: Please do not ask me to make you look like someone else. You are you- and you are pretty great!

I am based out of Peachtree City, GA and shoot for the lovely Atlanta and surrounding areas including

Newnan, Ga

Sharpsburg, GA

Fayetteville, GA

…but really I shoot all over the world.

Taisley

P.S. Please be a good person and do not steal any images off my website!
