RAW. UNSCRIPTED. POWERFUL.
My love for photography started as a child when I developed a fascination for capturing candid images of my family & pets on my parents canon. Some times it would take weeks before my Mom would develop the film and I could see what I shot. I remember the feeling of being proud, looking at the photos and hearing feedback from my parents about how I was able to capture a moment. That is when the obsession began.
I acquired my first DSLR camera in October 2010, after dropping and breaking my little point and shoot camera. I photographed anything and everything, but I was always drawn to my kids and pets. From there, family and friends began asking me to photograph their families which is where it all began.
In January 2011, Tailor Mayde Photography was born. I began focusing on newborns and eventually expanded to incorporate everything from child birth, children, families and pets to senior portraits, products and events.
I have spent the last 8 years shooting and developing my style. I thought I was right where I wanted to be until one day I decided to photograph my dogs catching cheese balls and cheerios. This day was a game changer for me. In an instant, I knew this was exactly what I was supposed to be doing. Photographing animals being exactly who they are, doing what they do best…giving us joy, friendship, love and happiness on an indescribable level.
Their love and excitement is at max capacity on your worst day and your best day. I want to provide images that make you smile and feel every ounce of love they give, every time you walk by a print hanging on your wall.
