Hello- My name is Taylor. I am a lifestyle, and portrait photographer based in Grand Rapids. I have received my BFA in photography from Kendall College of Art & Design of Ferris State University. My current personal work explores mental illness and it's effect on relationships in day-to-day life.
Additionally, as an aspiring portrait and lifestyle photographer, I am focused on capturing imagery in a documentary-like style with conceptual undertones and visuals. My goal is to make every moment I capture look as natural as possible. Less worry about the posing, more involvement in enjoying the day.
