Taylor Elchert Photography returning to downtown Tiffin

New storefront location to open in April

TIFFIN, OHIO – February 22, 2019 – Taylor Elchert, owner of Taylor Elchert Photography, has announced plans to move her business to downtown Tiffin in April. Having been in the downtown previously, Elchert said she was excited to get the opportunity to move her business, to be located at 184 Washington St., after the location was suggested to her by Washington Street Outfitters co-owner Zoe Dolch.

“I’m so excited about it. I actually graduated with Zoe, the owner of WSO, so it’s cool our businesses will be right next to each other,” Elchert said. “I love having the storefront. It’s so perfect with the city parking lot being right there.”

Elchert is a family photographer and specializes in maternity and newborn portraits. She has been in business for 11 years, and most recently was located on Melmore Street. Her work has been featured in The Huffington Post, Ever Illuminated and Lemonade & Lenses, where she also received an award. She has been named one of the most inspiring and talented child photographers by the Child Photo Competition Team and had articles written about her in Tiffin Life magazine and Findlay Life magazine.

In moving downtown, Elchert joins Melissa Perry Photography, The Poignon Project, Tiffin Art Guild, Court Street Gallery, Hawkes Crystal, Red Raven Tattoo & Art Gallery and other businesses in the arts community in Tiffin

“I’ve been thinking about moving to the downtown for a while now,” Elchert said.

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz said he was glad to see Elchert return to the downtown. “It is great to see so many entrepreneurs wanting to bring their businesses to the heart of Tiffin.”

Meet Taylor Elchert Harrison, owner of Taylor Elchert Photography, located at 113 Melmore St. in Tiffin. Taylor began taking pictures as a hobby, and nine years ago, at the age of 15, launched her own business out of her parents’ home.

“It was fun,” she said. “My parents were very supportive, and I was so young I didn’t have that pressure to make money.”

Taylor’s family is no stranger to entrepreneurship – her father is the owner of Fort Ball Pizza. Though they have two very different businesses, Taylor said she learned about owning a business watching how hard her dad works at it. “I am inspired by my dad,” she said.

Taylor decided while going to college that she wanted to make photography her profession. “At first I was planning on doing it on the side,” she said. “When I decided it was a full time career, I got serious about it. I needed a storefront.”

The studio space allows her more freedom in her photo sessions and props. Her building houses a plethora of props, and there is always a seasonal set in place. “The set is real, that’s really important to me,” she said. “It’s all about the experience for the client.”

Taylor specialized in capturing “milestone” moments in peoples’ lives. Her services include photos for maternity, family, births, newborns, and children.

One unique aspect of Taylor’s studio is the finished product and her push away from digital files. “Digital doesn’t last forever. I provide my clients with wall art, and a variety of other tangible products,” she said.
