Warmth & Love

It is FRIDAY friends! Another busy busy week has come to an end for most, however, I am catching up on retouching, ordering products for my clients and gearing up for another weekend doing what I LOVE.  As many of you already know, I am a busy lady even when it isn't busy season for my photography. I have a part time job besides photography, I am a administrative assistant at Chiropractic Connection in St. Joe. When I'm not behind my camera, you can find me behind a computer working away. You know what they say, a wedding, honeymoon and new vehicle won't pay for themselves, haha. 

Recently I have been blessed to photograph so many lovely faces from seniors, engagements, weddings to even families. My heart is so full, the amount of love and support I have been given in the past month alone has fueled my fire. It inspires me to embrace this craziness I have to work work work work work. If you are a current client please know, I am working away to deliver all of your beautiful photos, SOON!

I just wanted to share this image, it has so much impact to grab my eyes and pull me in. I normally don't blog or post before and after images however, I thought why not. I love showing clients what there images potential is before just handing over a proof book and having them try to imagine what the retouched version would look like. Here is an image from Ryan and Ashley's session I got the opportunity to photograph last weekend at Quarry Park.

Weather you love it or hate it, to me this captures a moment and freezes it in time. Personally it gives me a feeling inside of warmth and love. This is what I LOVE most about being a photographer, giving clients images that make you say "WOW!"

Until next time,

Taylor

There is a FIRST for everything

I know it has been WAY to long since I have found the time to post a blog post. I have been beyond busy making the final decisions in regards to the wedding, changing jobs and enjoying life when I get a minute of spare time which doesn't happen as much as it should. 

Awhile back I got the opportunity to photograph my first birthday party session, I'd be lying to say I wasn't nervous. Ive never been given the opportunity to photograph this type of session before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I have to shoutout to Travis & Liz for allowing me to capture Rylee's first year. I must say I have never met a baby who LOVES the outdoors as much as she does. Barefoot and enjoying life, these are the moments that even I as a photographer cherish. I know that both Travis & Liz will forever look back on their little girl and how much she has grown and changed in just her first year. 

Until next time,

Taylor

Finding the Strength to Get Back Up!

Being a business owner at 21, let alone any age, has its challenges to say the least. You look up to so many other successful photographers and think, man, I want to be there someday. As they say, we are our worst critic and no matter how far we are we always want to be further. Looking at it now, a year out of college is where I start to loose my motivation, drive and determination to keep on giving this dream my all. Only my heart always reminds me that photography is my passion. A passion that produces the most happiness in my life. The fact that my career allows me to capture my clients biggest moments and showcase all these memories for years to come makes my heart so full and myself feel so rewarded. 

 

The toughest part for me is the days where there aren't any new inquiries, the phone is silent and the inbox is empty. In these moments I reach out and ask other photographers for help and advice. That's exactly what I did, I got so many responses of maybe try this or approach the situation in a different way. That's exactly what I'm set out to do, is approach my business in a whole new light. I want to hear what all of YOU think about Taylor Haust Photography.

 

This is where I get nervous of what if they make a mean/rude comment. But then, how do I truly know what I'm excelling at? At the end of the day, how do you ever grow if your to busy judging yourself and not asking others opinions?

 

What I need for all of you reading this to do is, send me your feedback, good or bad I would love to hear your experience with my photography. What products do you love? what don't you like so much? Also feel free to mention things you wished I offered. You can email your experience/feedback to: taylorhaustphotography@gmail.com

 

You may all be thinking what do I want to know this for, well I want to better serve ALL my clients. This information to allow me to focus on my weakness' and to continue with my strengths. Photography is my passion and I truly do believe that I have been given this talent for a reason. To capture moments that will forever be cherished. 

 

Until next time,

-Taylor
