I'm here, I'm queer, and I'm ready to party the night away with my people.

About Tay

First of all, where are all of these Kansas city backyards hiding? Luke’s was absolutely perfect for their second anniversary session.

In my website re-design, my past two sessions of these two are gone! Never fear, I’ll correct that soon, but in the meantime I’ll just tell you a story. A story about how one day, while I was portfolio building, I offered a session to a couple of cuties. They had to bail on the session very last minute so when I put up an SOS on social media, Luke messaged me! He said he’d recently started seeing this great girl and he would reach out to her. If she didn’t think it was weird, they would meet me at the ass crack of dawn and be my models.

It has started a yearly tradition that I genuinely look forward to. It’s a chance to spend time with two of my cutest friends while also celebrating their growth and changes of their relationship. This year, like the previous years, we photographed a couples boudoir session (images coming soon over on Good Bodies!) in their home. After we headed to Luke’s family home which has the most beautiful pond, a ton of acreage, and some construction work that Luke has done himself!

I can’t wait for the chance to photograph them again next year and maybe next time Buck (they’re adorable beagle) will have calmed his running away enough to get his own feature.

"I knew Tay did great work from looking through her website, but it was talking with her and hearing her approach to her business that sold us. She is one of those people who exudes kindness and joy. We are an intercultural couple and it meant a lot to me that she had demonstrated a commitment to inclusivity in her client portfolios."

"Tay is simply the best. Contact her for a consultation; you won't regret it."

"When I met Tay in the summer of 2017, Luke and I were freshly dating and filling in for a portfolio session that had cancelled on her short notice! And let me tell you... that was one of the best things to have happened to us! We had a BLAST and it was then that I knew I wanted Tay to capture our relationship along the way— so when Luke proposed she was one of the first people I told! I have never been the most comfortable in front of a camera— but she makes it feel so dang easy. Tay has this way of capturing the purest moments, the goofy moments and all the love that exists between them. Just recently, she delivered again for us. Seeing our wedding through her lens was the cherry on top of my favorite day. I cannot thank her enough for the joy she has brought us— and the photos she has given us to show genterations to come."

"Tayanna is a prime choice for a photographer.
She photographed our wedding and produced home-run, out of the park, Friday night lights photography. We asked her to focus on moments: people interacting with each other and less formal moments. Her professionalism, communication and quality is top-notch. If you want top performance, hire Tayanna. 10/10 would recommend, will hire again."
