A Photo Story
My Girls is the story of twenty-four year old Amber and her four young daughters.
The essay and photos were published as part of a Newhouse magazine,
along with other stories relating the American economy.

A Personal Collection of work
My passion is storytelling, it's how I make sense of the world. The most important thing I have ever learned about storytelling is that in order to be a successful storyteller you must be an attentive and deliberate listener.
As a graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, I was able to develop a variety of skills relating to visual journalism and storytelling. My concentration was in photojournalism, but I was also able to grow illustrative, creative and multimedia portfolios.
My professional experience includes positions as a staff photographer for The Daily Orange, a contributing writer and photographer for The Onondagan, and a photo and cinema assistant for Michael Justin Films. I also enjoy working as a freelance photographer and designer and writing regularly for my personal blog, taylsb.
Currently, I am exploring the world, collecting stories and postcards from every place I adventure to. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
