I just love these girls already!!! This is my 2018 spokesmodel team of 19 (!!!) amazing girls who will be representing me for this year. It's the most successful spokesmodel program I've had yet, and I've perfected my program over the last four years. I receive hundreds of applications each year, am able to curate a team of INCREDIBLE ladies that help me build my business and I do it all while being able to stay organized, manage my time and NOT get overwhelmed. And, for the first time EVER, I am offering an online course with ALL of the content to teach you how I do it!!! The 8-module online course walks you through the entire process step by step, from application all the way through the seniors' graduation. And doors close TONIGHT for registration!!! Be sure to snag your spot at the link in my profile - we already have over 100 students with amazing testimonials!!! I'm so proud of them!!

3 years ago today. Just 1,095 days ago, I was attending orientation for Radford University, because I had committed to their school for business. I was registering for classes, touring dorms, meeting my roommate, and getting excited for the year to come. But...something just felt off. And that's because, only 3 days later, I made a decision that would completely change the course of my life.
3 days after attending orientation, God laid on my heart that maybe the traditional path wasn't meant for me. And by that, I mean I literally woke up one morning and just KNEW this journey wasn't mine. So, I revoked my admission, forfeited all of the money we had paid and started a crazy adventure. I went full time with my business at only 17 years old.
This week, I turn 21 and am so thankful I made that terrifying decision 3 years ago. It was surrounded my voices echoing things like "but are you sure you want to forfeit an education? Your business will always be there" or "you can't make a living off of photography" or "this is one of the stupidest decisions you've ever made". I also received a 3-paragraph, MLA formatted essay of a blog comment telling me why I was going to fail. But...here I am. Hustling and chasing my dreams every day. And I'm so grateful.
Here's my story as a Monday reminder that you are never too young or too old or in too deep to change your mind and chase your dreams. You only live this life once 🙌🏻

Don't worry...they'll be A LOT more coming from @thecarolinedoll's Vintage Barbie wedding day at @quirkhotel! 😍 Congratulations, you two!!! Love you!!! #hopetaylorweddings #hopetaylorbrides

This photo was taken in 2013 for MY senior portraits as a high schooler. Amongst senior portraits, pep rallies, college applications, prom, homework and graduation - I was also hustling hard to build my business. Where are my other #babybossladies out there?! Comment below with a 🙋🏼🙋🏼!
But, if I was building a business at only 16 years old (barely able to use my drivers license), how in the WORLD were my clients trusting me and booking me to capture their precious memories? Well, I'm sharing it ALL on the blog today - 5 ways to gain trust as a young business owner. Link in profile to read and tag a friend below who wants to build their business, too! #letsdothis #babybossladiesunite #whoneedstodriveanyway #stillnotoldenoughtorentacar 📸 // @thephotographysmiths

Today, I'm launching something BIG. This is the announcement you’ve been waiting for, the surprise I’ve been working on and the thing I’ve been hinting at for MONTHS. It’s a HUGE day over here because…

I'm launching my first EVER online course: Spokesmodel 101! And, the even cooler news? The course has been open to my mailing list members for a week and we already have over 100 students!! This 8-module, self-paced online course covers everything you need to know to build, execute and maintain a successful spokesmodel program. But here’s why it’s so exciting: • This information that I’m sharing has been LIFE-CHANGING in my business. It has dramatically increased my bookings and income for senior portraits. • Until now, the content in this course has ONLY been available at in-person workshops (priced at $1400/seat!) • The information I’m teaching is a topic I get asked to speak on regularly at industry-leading conferences and events • I am sharing EVERYTHING I did in my own business to see success and profit. What worked, what didn’t and what YOU can do to see the exact same results. Nothing is off the table!

The content in this course is valued at over $1100, and is priced at only $329. But, I'm discounting the course for this week for only $249 (!!!!) You can be a #hopetaylorcourses student right now for only $249! All of the links you need are in my profile - and there's more details on the blog today!!! I can't wait to see you on the inside as a STUDENT! Xoxo!!!
