Travel Photography: Pimpilala Falls

If you haven’t seen my last two blog posts featuring photos from my recent trip to Ecuador, be sure to check out my images from Quilotoa Crater Lake and Misahualli. On our last day in Tena, my sister and I made our way to Pimpilala Falls, a set of waterfalls in the nearby community of Cando. See my favorite images from our trip to Pimpilala below! 🙂 Like what you see?

Travel Photography: Misahualli, Ecuador

As you may have read in my previous blog post, I recently travelled to Ecuador to visit my sister, who has been living in Quito for most of the past year. Some of our travel plans got rained out, but I nonetheless had a great time exploring Quito, spending a few minutes at Quilotoa Crater Lake, and spending a few days in Tena, a city in the rainforest. While in Tena, we caught a bus to Misahualli, hoping to see the monkeys at the well-known “monkey […]

Travel Photography: Quilotoa Crater Lake, Ecuador

On my recent trip to visit my twin sister Sarah Anne in Ecuador, she and I visited Quilotoa Crater Lake. In the typical fashion of many of our (mis)adventures, things didn’t go as smoothly as we’d hoped; in spite of our well-planned endeavor to arrive at Quilotoa early enough to complete a 5-hour day hike before returning to Quito, a number of unexpected circumstances resulted in a much longer journey than we had anticipated! By the time we arrived, there was only about an hour of […]

Watkinsville, GA Family Portrait Session: The Robinson Family

This family session was extra special for me because I got to photograph my uncle, aunt, and cousins! I love photographing families, and capturing images of my own family is always particularly enjoyable 🙂 See my favorites from the session below! Like what you see?

Night Portraits at Elder Covered Bridge

One of my favorite aspects of photography is getting to explore and experiment with other photographers. Last week, a friend and I embarked upon an impromptu photo adventure in the middle of the night, deciding to photograph Christmas lights at the Elder Covered Bridge in Watkinsville, GA. You may have seen some of my past blog posts featuring night photography taken at the Iron Horse, Tybee Island, Downtown Athens, GA, or Paris, France. Be sure to check out those posts if you haven’t already! Experimenting […]

Athens, GA Portrait Session: Lily

This mini portrait session came just in time for the holidays! I took these portraits of Lily at the Botanical Gardens in Athens, GA. Cloudy skies made for perfect lighting, and Lily was a great little model. 🙂 See my favorites below! Like what you see?

Farmington, GA Maternity Session: Kelly & Chance

This family of two will soon become three; baby Lucy is due in just a few weeks! Kelly and Chance met up with me the Farmington Depot Gallery near Watkinsville, GA for a maternity session celebrating their journey into parenthood. I’m so excited for this fun couple as they enter a new chapter in their lives. Congratulations, Chance & Kelly! Like what you see? Show some love and “like” Mackenzie Taylor Photography on Facebook!

The Hunter Family

The Hunter family is an absolute joy to be around; they kept me laughing throughout their family portrait session, and I had so much fun photographing them! We did the shoot at one of my favorite portrait locations, Harris Shoals Park in Watkinsville, GA. See my favorite images below 🙂 Like what you see?

The Iron Horse: September Stars & An October Sunrise

Despite having grown up in Athens, GA, I had never visited the Iron Horse until recently. The large, abstract sculpture was first placed on campus at UGA before being relocated in response to vandalistic reactions by students to the modern work of art. The Athens landmark is now located in the middle of a field off of Highway 15, just inside Greene County (about 11 miles past the Watkinsville Jittery Joe’s). I’ve heard people mention the sculpture for years, but I had never gotten around to seeing […]

Kayla’s Graduation Portraits

Kayla is graduating from UGA this semester! HOORAY! I love graduation sessions because completing college is such an awesome accomplishment, and I’m always impressed by the achievements and aspirations I learn about during each shoot. I really enjoy getting to know each person I photograph and hearing about what makes them unique! During her time at UGA, Kayla has been studying exercise and sports science, and she intends to attend PA school in the future. So cool! In celebration of her upcoming graduation, we took […]
