I can't help but to feel the foreignness in knowing that every second that goes by is a second closer to "future".  A second closer to leaving life as I know it.  The idea of it is enthralling, yet intimidating.  God only knows what life beyond high school (and college) holds.  So, what exactly does that leave me to do now? I guess, dream.  The future, I cannot control.  The here and now, is what I can handle.  So, I will continue sending God my invocations.  I will continue working my hardest. I will continue seeking my dreams until I have captured them.  
Only then, will I stop and hold them close to my heart.  
Only then, will I undoubtedly feel conciliated.
Always, will I thank God.

These days have been filled with a lot of stress, a bit of apprehension, and a touch of frustration. Thoughts of my future, my career choice, and my college have been consuming my days. It's hard for me, and on top of those worries, I have school, work, and extracurriculars to keep up on. I never knew going to bed at night could be bittersweet. I want to sleep because I'm exhausted, but I don't want to sleep because I don't want to wake  up facing a whole new stressful day. Now, it's not all stress... I do have fun, but my days have been stressful enough to outweigh the fun parts.  That's why I've been looking forward to my session with one of my favorite little red-heads. I've been photographing Bentley since he was 3 months old and his photos have never failed to put a smile on my face:)
 How could they not? I mean, look at this face:

Today, I went on a college visit to Xavier University. After visiting UC with Kyle's family, I knew that I wanted to check out Xavier because I fell in love with Cincinnati. And today, I fell in love with Xavier. As I sit here in my new Xavier t-shirt snuggled up in my blanket, it finally seems real. I am going to be off to college in less than a year. On the long car ride home, it hit me how much I'm going to miss this year when it's gone. Yes, it's been rough so far, but I'm doing my best to make it great. It's my last year before college. I'm not sure if I'm feeling excited, nervous, terrified, or maybe even all of that at once, but for the time ever, it's real to me.
That's progress.
Smiles and lots of love, Taylor
 
 
The Poignon family is welcoming their new beautiful baby boy, Hudson. It's weird. I swear I was just preparing for my first session ever with his big sister... who was 1 at the time.

It's bittersweet. I have so many clients that I honestly don't even consider "clients". I've grown to know and love them because they have been with me from the start. They've watched me grow, and I've watched their families grow. I'm going to stop before I get teary eyed. I'll save that for graduation. (Which by the way, I am definitely still booking for my special "clients" while I'm in college!)
Smiles and lots of love, Taylor
 
 
I had the pleasure of having this sweet little one in my studio. September is once again proving to be the most popular birth month! I hope you're ready for tons of fresh babies coming up soon! I know I am:)

Special thanks to Lauren, again, for the ADORABLE pink and yellow little hat. I love it, and I think Abigail did too;)

I hope you all had a relaxing Sunday and took some time to remember those who risk their lives for us everyday. Keep in mind, freedom is not free. Have a great week everyone!
Smiles and lots of love, Taylor
 
 
I loved seeing this family again! It's always amazing watching families grow and this one is a perfect example of that. Even though miss Aversyn refused to open her sweet baby blues (which was very unlike her newborn session) the session was perfection.

Recently, I met the sweetest little guy. His name is Keagon and he has a super sweet big sis as well! 
Oh! And a super big thanks to my wonderfully talented friend, Lauren Ensley, for crocheting me the adorable fluffy blue hat pictured below. Her little miss Peyton's session will be coming up soon:)

Blogging at school is quite therapeutic. Right now, I am in my independent study period. This year, I am doing the senior slideshow and when I'm not busy with that (or editing photos) I like to blog during this period! It's a nice little break from all of the madness going on in my life. It's also a nice little break from studying for pre-calc. Wish me luck. The test is in about an hour.
Smiles and lots of love, Taylor
P.S.- I want to give a big hug to everyone who commented/contacted me regarding my last post. I am so blessed to be surrounded by so much love. <3
