The hope taylor senior experience

And, it’s also a season of scary choices and life change. I still remember my own senior year like it was yesterday! My number one priority as your senior photographer is to capture the real, natural joy during such an exciting season of your life. I want to capture you in beautiful, natural photos that reflect your happiness and give you memories to look back on for years to come. I can promise you two things: 



The real, natural, beautiful you. No heavy-handed editing or crazy-looking over-whitened teeth here! 

Secondly, I promise to make you feel comfortable, confident and and radiant in front of the camera. I will pose and guide you for our entire shoot - no modeling experience required!

If you’re reading this, I want you to know that I have been exactly where you are. Senior year is such an incredible season full of memories that will leave a lasting impact on your heart: pep rallies, senior events, prom, college night, campus visits and big decisions.

1.

The entire experience will be fun and leave you with new, exciting memories from your senior year. 


Your images will reflect you:

comfortable, confident, and radiant

HOPE TAYLOR SENIORS

here's what past hope taylor seniors had to say:

You were so sweet and definitely encouraged me to feel good about myself. You are unlike every other photographer in the industry. My pictures came out perfect and I appreciate you so much for making my senior year and senior portrait experience amazing.

"You are unlike every other photographer in the industry." 

- Soley

My teeth have been a huge insecurity of mine but, after taking pictures with you, it showed me that I do look beautiful while showing my teeth. That was the first time I actually felt beautiful in a picture. So thank you so much because I have the confidence that before I never thought I would be able to have.

"THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME I ACTUALLY FELT BEAUTIFUL IN A PHOTO." 

-Sierra

“My experience with Hope was amazing! I recommend Hope to all of my friends because I want their senior photography experience to be just as wonderful as mine!”

I want their senior photo experience to be just as wonderful as mine!”

- Dana

I'm definitely not a model so I had no idea what to do in front of the camera, but Hope made me feel not only comfortable, but confident and pretty! These pictures are memories me and my family will always be able to look back on. But most importantly what I love so much about Hope's pictures, they capture me. Her pictures don't paint a fake picture with over editing and too much makeup, she captures her seniors natural beauty and their individuality!

TESTIMONIAL

When I first became a spokesmodel I was insecure about being in front of the camera, but Hope changed this for me by giving positive feedback  like, “OMG you’re totally killing this girl!” Also, I'm so glad her editing is minimal -  I've seen countless over-edited pictures from friends' senior photos on Instagram  where I barely recognize the person photographed! That's just  not the case with Hope - you look like YOU.
