However, most important to this story is that I am a mother, and I have spent countless hours just admiring my son in the various rays of sun streaming through our windows in different parts of the day. I know how to find light and I know what magic in motherhood feels like--both the beauty and the grief alike.

The day I found out I shared life with another, I knew real love. The day I held my son in my arms, I felt the immensity of it. There are other days, too, that I knew real joy—like the one when he cupped my cheek in his palm to fall asleep or the one where he finally spoke the words “I love you”. Him and I—we believe that a love like ours will make us live forever. I tell him these things to keep his tender heart safe and because I wouldn’t dare not believe it. 

I’ve written love letters with my camera and my words that make this true. And right this minute, I’m hoping I can share this hope with you. 

Your Nostalgic Family Photographer

I'm tricia

am so glad you're here. And since you are here, you may know me as a family photographer shooting almost exclusively on film. I am also an artist, partner, friend and sometimes, part-time creative director and co-writer of your ultimate love letter.  


Say Hello »

a snapshot into my musings

Happiness is pockets in my dress 
And only using them for treasures you insist I keep
Nuts and smooth round rocks
And one hand always in yours 
And your laugh 
And sometimes 
When we pass by the sunroom windows 
And I notice how much you’ve grown

I currently live in Kentucky with my partner, our two sons, and our two big puppies. We got married in 2022 and it proved to me that dreams do come true and that love exists, wholeheartedly, in all forms. 
We love to travel and share experiences that push us out of our comfort zones as often as we can. We also love a good, rainy day at home snuggled up on the couch. :)

my family

I graduated from Berea College in 2014 with B.A. in Fine Arts and Environmental Studies with an emphasis in ceramic art. I started my ceramic business upon graduating and opened an art gallery and tea house in my college town. After having my son I moved back to west Kentucky to be closer to my family and started my photography business. However, I still am active in ceramics and spend a lot of my time in my lovely home studio. You can find more about my art on Instagram or Facebook @triciataylorceramics.

My Favorite Things

I had the absolute honor of having a motherhood session with Tricia and it produced some of the most breathtakingly beautiful photos I have ever seen of my son and I - an absolute treasure. I knew right away I could trust her vision and she totally delivered. Our session was so laid back and comfortable, she truly is an artist with a talented eye for catching the beautiful moments in life.

Motherhood Session


Tricia has come to our home to photograph us for our small business and also to capture our newborn son on film. Her in-home sessions are the perfect way to stay comfortable and take the pressure out of having photos taken with a small child!

She took the time to find the perfect setting & lighting and gave us some really special photos of these fleeting moments as a new family.

Tricia is a truly gifted artist and we wholeheartedly recommend her and look forward to working with her again as our son grows up!

Newborn session


Tricia is truly the best. Her work can speak for itself as she truly has a gift for photography but her genuine kindness and sweet personality make her one of a kind. She captured a motherhood session for me and made it so absolutely special. I’ll cherish her art forever. If I could give her 100 stars, I would.

Motherhood Session


Working with Tricia was amazing! She was extremely easy when scheduling and flexible when we had to reschedule. She did great with my kids and her photos and editing are truly incredible. I can’t wait to schedule another session with her.

We loved working with Tricia for our family pictures! Being a family of 7, it’s no easy task to get the perfect shot and she got several.

You Deserve to be witnessed

I know how I want to feel and be seen as a mother and how I wish my son to remember me and our time together when he is grown. I want beautiful, validating proof of how hard I am trying and how fiercely I am loving. And friend, I'm betting that you share that same desire.
