Life & Work with Taki Bailey

Today we’d like to introduce you to Taki Bailey.

Hi Taki, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Hi and thank you for having me! My name is Taki. I am a 27 year old mama of Irish twins ( their birthdays are actually 1 year apart to the day!). I am the owner of Taki Bailey Photography. I specialize in Maternity, Newborn, Motherhood and Family photography. I truly just enjoy capturing the connection between people and preserving those small fleeting details of life! When I’m not at sessions and editing, I love to adventure! Outdoors is truly my happy place, whether it’s hiking, camping, biking through the city, on the slopes, or at the beach. If it’s an outdoor activity count me in!

I found photography when pregnant with my daughter. We booked our first professional photoshoot for our maternity and newborn session and little did I know that I would soon fall in love with documenting my little one and become a photographer as well! During my son’s pregnancy, I had crazy insomnia so I took that time to build the business side of my photography business with the pricing structure, what niche I wanted to be in, researching the legalities, and all that fun stuff. I scheduled my first set of minis in the Fall of 2018 and boy they were rough! Lol, I had no idea about lighting but quickly learned. I joined many Facebook photography groups as well as lots of YouTube my first year as I wasn’t profitable and didn’t have a lot of access funds to spend on education. Fast forward five years later and I have taken multiple marketing and mentor classes and have even mentored a few local photographers. I truly love what I do and the many special moments I get to experience with so many families who trust my artistry. I am grateful for the clients who have been here since the beginning and supporting me through the growth!

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Photography is my passion and I truly love what I do but sometimes it can be rough. Being a small business owner of any type means wearing all the hats from admin work to scheduling, shooting sessions, editing, marketing, EVERYTHING. Sometimes it can be overwhelming on top of being a stay-at-home mom of two! Some days I honestly don’t know how I’m getting by other than caffeine and passion lol. Photography is an art and even though art is subjective, it is easy to catch imposter syndrome when looking at other amazing photographers work in the area. All in all, I wouldn’t change anything because I love what I do and how happy my clients are with the end product and the connections I have made. I’m a firm believer that anything worth fighting for whether it’s your passion or goals isn’t always going to be easy. There are good and bad in every situation, it’s all about how we get through it!

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a photographer servicing Denver & front range cities. I specialize in Maternity, Newborn, Motherhood and Family photography.I am most known for my true tone and colorful editing style as well as timeless design! I am proud to say that I built this business from the ground up, being self-taught, being recognized as one of Denver & Aurora’s best Newborn and Maternity photography and so much more! I set my business aside by being a full-service photographer. I supply all props, backgrounds and gowns for our session. With every booking, there is a consultation to discuss your vision and make sure I know every detail to bring it to life, a dress fit, and a location guide. I have two amazing Hair and Makeup artists I work within the area as well. I want to make sure this experience is a seamless and pleasant experience for all my clients.

Pricing:

  • My rates for Maternity & Newborn Bundles begin at $650
