UGLY Characters that are really HOT! Thesy Surface #14 Hot

UPDATE: The ON-line magazine TheTalko did give me photo credit! 

That was cool! Everyone loves getting credit where credit is due! 

Thank you, TheTalko!  ( pronounced like " the talk O")

Here is a link to their YOUTUBE Channel  

If you're into celebrity facts, pics , fashion, fun.. Ooooo they got me. I clicked on 20 things you didn't know about Ariana Grande.  Actually it was interesting. Okay get the gist.

I blogged about post below that featured Thesy Surface & the "HOT" & hideous chick fest & that the on line magazine the theTalko did not post photo credit. ( They have since posted credit.)

You know.. Karma nevers misses an opportunity! 

Once I left a comment on a clients page " Great post & nice article! Congrats! Would have really appreciated photo credit" only to scroll on about 10 comments later to see that someone had posted to the actor, "Hey they forgot to credit you in that episode! That sucks!"

And.. There ya go. Everybody likes to receive credit!

Hey, here is the fun post about UGLY TV Characters who are really HOT!

#14 is Thesy Surface and I shot the "HOT" photo for a fun publicity shoot we did to show

exactly how Hot Thesy really is compared to the hideous hilarious character she plays on Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Lol..

And please ..ALWAYS include photo credit and any other credits. Give credit where credit is due. It's the classy thing to do!

I heart Woody Allen..Still

Growing up I LOVED Woody Allen! Annie Hall, still one of my favorite films. Manhattan. Hannah & Her Sisters, Crimes & Misdemeanors My favorite films always have Woody Allen in them.  It's funny.. I think of Louis C.K. as a sort of modern day Woody Allen. At any rate I stumbled across this interview with Woody Allen and I thought it was interesting. He talks about making films now and shooting in London, story, writing, actors etc. Making a musical movie for people who don't sing and dance. And ..He's still funny and you know.. Woody Allen. Enjoy!

Daniel Craig might be AMAZING in Logan Lucky

Daniel Craig might be AMAZING in  Logan Lucky

I kinda wanna see "Logan Lucky" the new Steven Sodebergh's film starring Channing Tatum who looks believable. Adam Driver who's always notably quirky. And.. Daniel Craig like we've never seen him before! There's more great cast. Hilary Swank. Katie Holmes. Riley Keough and Seth MacFarlane. The list goes on. Story looks edgy & funny and the performances may just be great enough to keep my attention and carry me through to the end. And nowadays.. That's saying something.

Book your NIGHT shoot!

It's officially summer time which means long hot summer days! I love summer it's one of my favorite seasons but I like to cool off at night. That's when I do my best creative stuff. After the heat has subsided and you feel like you can focus again. A cool drink, positive vibes and the creative ideas are flowing!

I set up a studio space 3 months ago and I love it! 

And.. I just got 11 new backgrounds! Woo hoo!

I love the quality of the light. The convenience of having the powder room & the kitchen at my beck & call.  It's a new space to play & I'm digging it!

Plus you add in my JUNE SUMMER SPECIAL for three looks / pre shoot wardrobe and the light is soooooo good in here that I'm including video actor slates on each look! It's looks amazing! 

Call now to reserve your spot! June is coming to a close & you don't want to miss it!

Coffin 2 - Coming soon to you!




We recently shot an alternate movie cover for Coffin 2.



Pretty fun. One of the actors and producers on the film, Scott Hamm got to hold a prop gun and wear a tight black t-shirt. Lol..

I like these kind of shoots because you get to act. Actually ..I encourage actors to act in their head shot / portrait sessions and I can always tell if a client has dropped it or no longer in the moment. I bust you! Haha.. It's true. Ask any of my clients. As a result.. You get better pictures!

Getting back to Coffin:2. It's really good. Takes you on a fun ride! 

You may have see the original "Coffin" with Kevin Sorbo and this is the sequel.

Look for it on Amazon, Red Box coming soon! 

Check out the promo here:

Sweet BEE Magic - Save your skin!

It's tuesday Nov 29th 2016 and it's feeling a lot like winter! Even by L.A. standards! 

I don't know about you but.. My skin had been getting crazy!

One day it was itchy and dry, the next itchy and oily! 

A couple of weeks ago it started looking corse. I said to my mom in my best jersey accent " Ma! What the hell?! Do you see what I'm seeing?! My skin looks like crap!" 

Of course my Mom never lies to me and she agreed my skin was looking completely wack. Totally stressed me out. :} And.. Guess what? I had ran out of my sweet "BEE Magic" and foolishly thought I could get by without it for the last month.  Silly Keli!  :)

I ran, not walked but ran to my local Whole Foods, hey I needed to pick up some almond milk barista style and a piece of chocolate raspberry cake with real raspberries, so delicious! Wow do I sound LA or what?! I walked into WF and there it was like a ray of sunshine! "Medicine Mama's sweet BEE Magic" All in one healing cream!! 

Ingredients: organic extra olive, fruit oil, organic cera alba ( beeswax), organic honey, propolis extract, bee pollen, royal jelly. 

MY SKIN HAS RETURNED! YAY! No more dry itchy skin. Texture of my skin has done a complete 180 and I'm looking like me again! Woo Hoo! :D

For those of you who like Egyptian Magik face cream, I find that BEE Magic works even better on my skin and it costs much less!

You can get a small jar of Bee Magic at Whole Foods to try out for around $20 or less when it's on sale. Remember when you buy anything at Whole Foods keep your receipt. If you buy a bottle of sweet BEE Magic and you don't like it, take it back with your receipt and Whole Foods will give you a full refund.

But.. If you have dry problem skin try BEE Magic you're gonna love it! :D

Let the healing begin!

Thanks for checking out my ninja blog!  

Your pal, KST :D






Evan Antin #People magazines #sexiest Veterinarian / Nov. 2016

Couple days ago I had just finished shooting photos of a lovely young actress. It was an all day shoot. After my client and M/U artist left I was hungry, tired and curious about what I missed while I was working. I sat down in my favorite chair and checked my phone for notifications. I was thrilled to see my photo of Dr. Evan Antin in the November 2016 issue of PEOPLE magazine sexiest man alive issue! ( YAY!) :)

Photo of Evan Antin by Keli Squires Taylor

Since I shot Evan's photos he is up to 601K followers on instagam : @dr.evanantin

I am also thrilled for Evan that he shares a page with DRAKE, Nick Jonas, and comedian Keegan-Michael Key. 

I love this shoot because we shot at this amazing animal sanctuary just 10 mins. from Santa Clarita :  Animal Tracks

You and your family can visit Animal Tracks and take a tour & interact with all of the gorgeous animals! Yes, I am plugging Animal Tracks. They are amazing! Between Evan Antin and the animals at Animal Tracks, I actually would take a min. while I was shooting and just.. Let the gratitude wash over me! Lol.. To photograph a handsome man like Evan who is also sweet and generous and then add these beautiful animals well, I was in heaven!

I also found another photo of Evan Antin and one of the awesome wolves that lives at Animal Tracks in an article from PEOPLEpets exclusively from INSTYLE featuring Evan and other adorable dog dads : These Sexy Men Prove They're Dog's Best Friend

On the PEOPLEpets article they gave me photo credit (YAY!) I love it when they post the photo credit but they didn't spell my name correctly. It is "Keli Squires Taylor". Yep. One "L" and one"i" "KELI" my Mom God bless her thought the spelling was French and actually it's Hawaiian. :)
