SURPRISE – There’s Been a Website Makeover! and there's a GIVEAWAY to celebrate!

For Photographers


If you’ve been around here for awhile, you know that I launched an entirely new website and brand back in May of 2016. But, what you DIDN’T know, is this: two months ago, I sent Jen Olmstead an email that basically said “Hey, remember how we launched a new website last year? Yeah, let’s do that again.”

I entirely expected her to respond and think I was absolutely insane. I mean, re-doing a website and creating entirely new content takes HOURS (if not WEEKS) of consistent work and serious dedication. And we had JUST done it, less than a year ago, so why the heck was I emailing her wanting to do it all again? Well, there were a few reasons:

-Even in just one year, my style, personality and passions have evolved and changed drastically. Therefore, my business and my vision for my online presence did, too.

-My business has made some drastic shifts in the last 365 days to focus more and more on education, so I wanted to re-stucture my site to reflect that (and to reflect my passion for educating, too).

-Because I began my journey of being a business owner as a high schooler, I am naturally expected to grow and change as an individual as I learn more and more about myself. I started to feel like my site didn’t reflect ME anymore, and I knew that needed to change.

When Jen responded to my email with a resounding “YES, let’s do this.”, I don’t think I could have been more excited. I dove right into creating all brand new content (over a dozen pages, to be exact) and we jumped right in. We had a full two-day design intensive at Quirk Hotel and gave my online home a whole new facelift. And, today, I’m so excited to present the new-and-improved hopetaylor.com!

If you haven’t already, go take a scroll through! There are so many fun new things to explore in my little online home and I only hope that you adore it as much as I do.

And, the BEST news of it all? I am hosting a giveaway to celebrate and it is something that I have NEVER done before. You ready for this?

I am giving away one FREE hour of mentoring. Online or in person.

To one lucky photographer.

From anywhere in the world.

To teach you ANYTHING you want to know.

Business intensives are entirely sold out apart from this giveaway.

Yes, I’m serious.

Ready to enter? LETS DO THIS.


And, lastly, I need to give a HUGE thank you to Jen for all of her help with my site design and refresh. So, so thankful for her trust in me, her excitement about this huge project and her incomparable talent. If you want to get a design of hers for yourself, take a peek at Tonic Site Shop!
