Brittanny Taylor has a lot going on. She’s a fashion photographer and a social media consultant. She’s a co-founder of The Branding Edit and COO of The Lady Project. I met Brittanny (online… that is meeting these days, right?) back in October when she asked me to contribute to the blog for The Lady Project. I’ve been following her work ever since. I subscribe to The Branding Edit blog on my Bloglovin feed because I love getting that business lady information from time to time (I’m not the kind of person who’s going to search for that information on my own–even though I need to, so it’s good to have it pop up in front of my face every time there’s something new over there).
Anyway, in case those weren’t enough links for you, use this one to go follow her Instagram account. After all, she is a fashion photographer and her IG feed is delicious and incredible.
Meet Brittanny. She’s funny and has a lot of really good stuff in here. Read this interview and let yourself feel pumped up to take on your day.
How do you want to introduce yourself to these readers?
Hi! I’m Brittanny Lynn Taylor (yes, my initials are BLT). I live in the smallest state with the longest name. I’m born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island (and Providence Plantations (but we choose to ignore that part)). I am a fashion and lifestyle photographer and social media consultant. I actually became a photographer after getting laid off from my job at a local camera store! In 2017, I co-founded The Branding Edit, a boutique visual storytelling studio that specializes in helping passionate entrepreneurs refine their brand, expand their presence online & off, and connect on a deeper level with their audience.
The interesting (at least to me stuff): I love squirrels, collecting vinyl records, and reading tarot cards.
What gets you out of the bed in the morning?
These damn photos won’t edit themselves! But seriously, I have to drag myself out of bed since I work for myself and I work from home. I live alone and I don’t have anyone else to rely on so it’s all up to me. I have to show up for myself and work every day (well, not every day – trying to not work on the weekends) so I can set myself up for a good future.
What word/ phrase resonates the most in your life?
“It’s not that serious.” I used to say it all the time but it still resonates. There is a lot of horrible shit happening all around us but I see so many people complaining about the minutiae of their lives. I tend to run on the realist/ apathetic/ shadow side of life so I try my best to remember that things are ok, we will be ok, and it’s just not that damn serious.
What does your ideal day look like?
The ideal workday: I’d like to wake up around 7am. Working from home is a blessing and a curse so it can be easy to lie around if there are no pressing matters to attend to. I’ll make breakfast or go over to the cafe next door for something to eat. I either get to work at the cafe or back home or if it’s an in person client day, I’ll head off to the location for the day. Sometimes I have events to go to in the evening so I’ll spruce myself up to be seen by the masses. More often than not it’s just my boyfriend and I hanging out, cooking dinner and watching something on Netflix. But since this is my ideal day, it’s an event I can bring my boyfriend to so we can go out for dinner or drinks afterward.
The ideal non-work/ weekend day: Waking up when I feel like it and lying in bed with the boyfriend reading comic books. We’d make some food and either lounge around the apartment all day or wander around some stores looking at all the things we want to buy but won’t.
Thanks so much Brittanny! I so appreciate the time you took to put into this project for us.
