Taylor Ann: Story & Interview

At the age of 13, a photographer asked if I would mind if I stepped outside of the Starbucks that we were at to take a photo of me, that is when everything started for me. I entered a modeling competition and ended up winning that and was put in a magazine. From there I was getting photographers asking me if I would take photos with them, and ended up landing in quite a few magazines.

I just finished shooting a movie called “Visitor” a short horror film, for Moon Shadow Films. In my spare time, I play on a Volley Ball league and also coach little kids. I have been riding horses since I was 5, competing in English competition and like to ride for fun on trails. I have really met so many awesome people in the last year in the modeling field and have some of the best supporters and fans I could ever dream of. Here is my FB fan page link –
