"Mattie completely exceeded our expectations when it came to our family photos. She made the entire process so easy and was extremely accommodating. With her strong eye for detail and natural talent, she was able to capture photos of our family that we truly cherish. She optimized our images by directing and posing our family in a way that felt natural and comfortable. The final product left us with a variety of photos that were special in their own way. It is evident that she knows what she is doing!"
"Mattie is an incredible photographer. She was so good with our kids and we got way more shots of them smiling than in any of the other photo shoots we had done with other photographers. Another thing that Mattie is really talented at are poses. She had us try different poses that were really flattering for all members of our family. If you are looking for a photographer who is great with kids, easy to work with and incredibly talented when it comes to technical expertise, then look no further than Mattie. Best family pictures and photography experience we have ever had!"
"We’ve been going to Mattie for years for our family photos and have enjoyed working with her! She makes the process enjoyable and easy. She knows the best spots to shoot at and has an eye for detail. So sweet with kids and makes the session fun for them! Super personable and very talented! Thankful for the beautiful work she does!"
"Mattie is such an amazing photographer! She is so kind and talented. I get shy posing; she helped me feel comfortable posing and helped us feel at ease. Our pictures turned out so beautiful. We will definitely be using her again!"
"We had a wonderful shoot with Mattie! She was very patient and thoughtful in helping us pose as well as choosing the right location for the shoot. We also received our photos very quickly and they captured our best qualities!"
"My husband and I had the best experience doing a shoot with Mattie! She is so talented and we are beyond happy with how the photos turned out, and will forever cherish them. Mattie made us both feel extremely comfortable throughout the whole experience, helping us to pose and ultimately resulting in my all time favorite photos. Will 100% go back to Mattie for our next photo occasion!"
"Mattie did an amazing job. She creates a professional and very relaxed environment. It was very low stress, which is saying something having a young family of four. She got my daughters to look at the camera, gave us great pose ideas, and we had fun. It was by far the most calm and enjoyable photography experience. And of course, the most important part, the pictures turned out beautiful!"
"Mattie has taken our family photos several times and each time, they’ve been amazing! I can’t wait for our next session with her and highly recommend her. She’s great with my four kids and manages to get them to smile and be happy (and still!) for photos. She gets beautiful action shots and posed. All of them are just gorgeous and I’m grateful for her!"
"I’ve used Mattie Taylor Photography for several of my family’s photo shoots. Maternity, infant and family photos and she does an amazing job each time. Mattie is very professional. She is patient, especially with little kids and knows how to help them be comfortable in order to get the perfect shot. She has a thorough knowledge of venue ideas for just what you’re looking for. I highly recommend choosing Mattie Taylor Photography, you won’t be disappointed!"
Mattie did such an amazing job on my maternity and family photos! She always captures the sweetest moments and my kids are so comfortable with her. She has done our family photos a few times already and we love them every single time! Thanks Mattie for all the family memories!
"Mattie has taken photos of my family on several occasions and she goes above and beyond each time! She’s great with getting the kiddos to look at the camera and smile. She tells me when I should adjust my dress or hair to look my best in the photos (which is amazing because I’m trying to make sure everyone else is looking and smiling I forget about myself!)"
