You know that you've needed new photos for years but you never found the right photographer who made you feel comfortable or like you're able to be yourself...does that sound about right?
You've got two options:
Use the grainy photos that don't even look like you anymore (you might even be cringing just thinking about it)
You let me show you that having your photos taken can actually be fun and trust that I will do everything I can to make sure you feel as comfortable and yourself as possible!
The smart money says option 2, but why don't you grab your favorite beverage, settle in, and let me tell you a little bit more about just who the heck I am!
Hey friend, I'm Taylor!
A queer Boston portrait photographer; my pronouns are she/her/hers. In my life before being a photographer, I was (and still am) a classical flutist! While I was in grad school for flute performance, I started an internship at Flutistry, a flute company here in Boston, and immediately fell in love with marketing for creatives.
I was so passionate about it that it became clear that that's what I wanted to do. So you know what I did next? I quit grad school (scandalous, I know) and was hired as a full-time Marketing Associate. During my time there I created content for social media, product photography for the website, and got to interact with incredible flutists from all over the world! But something was missing...
I was looking for a new path that allowed me to work in the online space and serve a wider group of people beyond flutists. A few months later, I teamed up with Nicole Riccardo to form Nicole Riccardo Media, a web design agency for musicians and creatives. When we realized that our strengths together were even stronger than they were apart, it only made sense to create a digital dream team! It has been nothing short of exciting as I get to spend a portion of my time as the website designer! You can check out our company site here: www.nicolericcardomedia.com
I love being a website designer, there was STILL something missing for me...
The truth was, I missed interacting with people in person. While we've had some amazing website clients, the time I actually got to interact with them was less than filled my cup so it was time to add something new into my life and business.
But what would do the trick? A part-time job? A receptionist position? Just have discovery calls to get to talk to people?
None of these felt right...
The whole time I had been doing photoshoots here and there and it dawned on me that my imposter syndrome had been holding me back, thinking that I could never call myself a photographer, too. So finally I said screw that, I'm going to do the thing that I've secretly wanted to do since high school. After a lot of practice and dedication to growing this new set of skills, I am happy to say that I am a portrait photographer for musicians and creatives like me.
The truth is, this is the neat and tidy version of my life story. There were lots of messes and trash can fires along the way, but that's also the joy of what it means to be a full human being.
I hope this gave you a little more insight into who I am and allows you to feel more comfortable when we work together.
