Hi, I am Jessy Taylor.

I am an award winning and nationally published photographer located in Cynthiana, Kentucky. I graduated from Sullivan University with a Masters in Business Administration with a concentration in accounting and have been an accountant since 2005. I started my side hustle photography business in 2010 and started specializing in high school seniors in 2013. Since then, my love for glamming girls has grown and I have added pageant headshots and model portfolio building to my list, amongst a few others. My pageant headshots have received photogenic awards across multiple pageant systems at the local, state, national, AND international levels.

I love using my gifts and talents as ministry to help others understand their true value and beauty the way that God sees them.

In 2020, I decided to make my side hustle, my full time career and I have never looked back! On top of photography, I also run my own beauty company named Glam & Grace | Beauty by Jessy. I offer lash extensions, custom spray tans, as well as professional hair and makeup services for weddings, pageants, and special occasions.


When I am not behind the camera or holding makeup brushes, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling as much as possible!

Thank you for thinking of me for your photography needs. I look forward to meeting you!



“Over the past 8 years, Jessy has been my go to photographer for my pageant headshots. Every session she has always made me feel confident, comfortable, and fierce in my own skin. My headshots are always a true representation of me and I couldn't imagine having anyone else capture them for me.”
