I like to go with the flow and the vibe I get from a location for pictures, but I'm always open to peoples' preset ideas and if they want to wing it. Specific to me, I'm very outgoing and open minded I won't knock something until I try it. Creating art of myself by myself is always fun for me, but if I can create art of me for an audience by someone else, I think that's always an amazing opportunity. I'm very approachable and negotiable if someone comes to me with an idea for a shoot I can almost always follow through with what they're looking for
Taylor, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Young Model?
I want to make art in any way possible, make ideas come alive and keep life interesting. I was introduced to the idea of modelling from my best friend because she's a shoo-in to be a model
Who is your inspiration in life Taylor? How do you stay inspired as a Young Model?
Mainly, my mom, she's always taught me to be true to myself and my ideas and make a name for myself
We all make mistakes Taylor; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?
Taking more disrespect than I should have from a former partner. I kept myself in a cycle that wasn't healthy, and I still pay for it to this day
Taylor, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?
Negotiable and Approachable
Please tell us, Taylor, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
For me, school & work come first in terms of making a living and my social life adheres to that, so it fluctuates, but it's active. Friends & family I make time for as I never know when something is going to change
Taylor, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
The home builder I work for wanted to go paperless in his office but was doing so in a non-effective fashion. I showed him some shortcuts and easier ways to go about it, and he let me try it out, and now his office is empty of paper within the two months I've worked here
Taylor, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Young Model.
Having photographers reach out to me on social media.
Taylor, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
In my most recent instagram post, the photographer had the vision to use flower pedals in the pool, we had been shooting along with my best friend earlier in the daytime and they had their ideas planned out for a day shoot but when it got dark I had an idea on how to create an entirely different ambience but with the same flower pedals in the same location and the photographer let me try it and originally he said the pictures didn't come out well, but I had him send me them anyway, and I played around with them and created something I didn't think I get from my brain into a photo.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Young Model?
Always follow your gut and don't be afraid to express your ideas in addition to ones others may have - you may create the best thing ever
