Regardless of your own political perspectives, you have to be impressed when an 18 year old, 4 year varsity swim letterman, belongs to a high school republican club and has strong political aspirations. We spent a great deal of our conversations discussing her future collegiate quests in pertaining degrees in pre-law and political science. Taylor -- who's Greek, Russian, Irish, and German -- shared with me a variety of her views on national matters, speaking with concern and passion. Her convictions are built on research and study, she actually knew her stuff. I got the feeling she didn't casually peruse FoxNews to fuel her opinions. She also shared with me her parents desire for her and her sisters to read an insane amount of books over the summer. The goal was something like 100 books by the end of the summer. Some days she would read two books a day. This floored me. So besides her obvious pageantry appearance -- the incredible posture, the disneyesque locks -- she has brains to boot. Oh and lastly, she's an artist on the side, providing a few impressive works with me on our shoot. Since this shoot, she's participated in Miss Arizona Teen, and I will share the head shots I shot for her in the coming weeks. Taylor has plans as long as her hair, I wouldn't be surprised if she commissions me to shoot some political head shots in the near future. This is Taylor Rosenow, and she's been liberated.
