Year In Review
I try to post a ‘Year in Review’ post each year, as a way of looking back and reflecting on how many wonderful things can happen in just 365 days! Some years have more ‘epic’ moments than others and It’s been a year of hustle and focus. A year of growth. It’s been a year filled with learning, connecting, and loving. I am so thankful for every bit of it. As we start the journey into 2019
Another year to be thankful of all the memories
A little expanding ~ I entered the book world as an avid reader, and book blogger. When I'm now with my family or working on my photography business she is on her e-reader. After meeting an amazing author who knew her background, and worked with Her for her branding and family sessions, she questioned why she wasn’t using her talent for book covers, she decided to take the leap into the world of Book Covers, and already has about 40 + book covers coming out in 2019 From both best selling and indie authors. Thanks to Aurora Rose Reynolds she found another reason to love what she does! When you can put your two
passions together there is nothing better! ~ In June 2018 she launched a website for stock and exclusive images for Book covers - https://imagination.tayloralexander.com/
I was so excited to be asked to be the photographer for the Author Book Signing in Nashville this year and had the opportunity to meet as well as take photos of so many wonderful and talented authors.
- I have had the chance to work with a country singer Grace Meyer on images for her new single. I know she is going to make it big because she is not only beautiful, sweet and talented but a truly amazing person. I love working with you Grace and look forward to our future projects! - Be sure to check her out at - https://www.facebook.com/gracemahermusic/

2017 A year in Review
What can I say about this past year, so many words and so many emotions come spilling out of me when I think about all that 2017 has brought.
2017 has been the best year yet at Taylor Alexander Photography. I have meet so many wonderful people this year. Thanks to all my clients that have found me through Facebook, Thumbtack, Instagram, Google searches and of course referrals. You mean so much to me and I hope you stick with me for your photography needs throughout the years. Thanks so much for trusting me to capture your special moments and memories! (Please see bottom of page to see a review of some of the wonderful sessions I have had a chance to capture this year.)
- Clients that have stuck by me since I opened my business in 2013 and still come to me every time they need a photographer, they refer me and I consider them friends. You know who you are and I look forward to every year's pictures to see how much you and your family have grown and accomplished each passing year. Thanks for sticking with me and supporting me; your loyalty means the world to me! Without you my business would not be where it is today.
- I have had the chance to work with a best selling author Aurora Rose Reynolds, I love her books (big fan here) but meeting her in person and coming to know what a truly amazing person she is. I can't say enough kind words about this woman. She inspires me and is so much fun to be around. I am honored to now call her and her family friends. Aurora I look forward to our new adventures together personal and business in 2018! (YAY for the book cover project) Be sure to check out her amazing books at - https://www.amazon.com/Aurora-Rose-Reynolds/e/B00FCIYSEO/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1513610606&sr=8-1

Earlier this year I got to work with a family that is near to my heart,
J.D. stepped on an I.E.D in Afghanistan in 2010 and lost both of his legs and his right arm. Most would have given up but with his family by his side, he turned a tragedy into a beautiful life and uses his injuries to inspire other Veterans to get out and experience the outdoors. Check back for more on their story that will be added to my blog but here is a preview!
Also be sure to read more about him and his family at - http://www.wbko.com/content/news/SPECIAL-REPORT-Mohawk-Outdoors-422991034.html
I also have met my second shooter, best friend and camera sister - If you haven't met someone who shares in your passion, I think it is definitely important. Tennille has not only been an amazing friend and second shooter but we are always there to support each other and help each other any way we can. It's amazing when you get to grow as a photographer with your friend and someone who gets what you do, someone you can bounce ideas off of, and call when you need them or just to vent. Thanks so much Tennille your friendship means the world to me, your creativity and talent inspires me, love you girl!
I have had the chance to collaborate and work with some other amazing talented photographers this year in workshops and you guys are inspiring and so talented! I love seeing how we can all take a picture of the same scene and the end results can be so different. Seeing others vision and take on something is what makes me love what I do. It is what makes it true art so thanks for showing me different directions and letting me see through your creative eye - I will try to organize a few more workshops this year if interested let me know <3
**Also thanks so much for all the models and makeup artist that participated in the workshops these are something that really make my job even more fun and I love to see the finished product when collaborating with such talented people!
