About Us

Brooke Martin is the co-owner of Taylor and James.  She has been married to her husband for over 20 years and is mom to Caroline and Ben.  Brooke has had a passion for photography most of her life and has a background in marketing, as she worked for a commercial architectural firm in Houston, Texas before becoming a full time photographer.  Brooke has had the opportunity to photograph several clothing lines over the last several years and has loved being a part of that side of the business.  After attending New York fashion week in 2020, and soaking in the Dallas Market in early 2021 as a guest of the clothing lines she has worked with, she is loving being on the other side of fashion and gifts as a buyer.   She is excited for this opportunity to grow this business with her best friend/sister, Lauren.  


Lauren Sain is the other co-owner of Taylor and James. She and her husband, Chris, have three children, Taylor (the inspiration for Taylor and James), Jake, and Luke. Lauren had a career as a teacher before staying home after having Taylor in 2012. She has enjoyed being a full-time mom to her kids for the last nine years. She has had a love for dressing her children in smocked, classic clothing over the years, but saw a need for tween clothes when her oldest started third grade, and so the idea for Taylor and James was born!
