Taci Zahl

Client Stylist

Taci has been our Client Stylist since 2011, assisting clients with “what to wear” for their sessions! She is a lover of vintage, floral, some industrial, reused, upcycled and HANDMADE, colorful lovely things. She believes glitter makes everything just a little better. She seems to gravitate toward classic styles with a hint of granny chic in her own personal style but she says what matters is the clients OWN style. Finding it, and kicking it up a notch for pictures. At home, she’s a mom to three: Amalia (10), Athan (7) and Aleni (3) and wife to a great soccer guy!
