Lindsay + Matt are a husband and wife team that run the show at BSC Photo Studio. Matt, the photographer + Lindsay, the art director. Back in November they organized a shoot out of sorts with 6 photographers and a videographer for their 5 year anniversary. When Matt thought of asking a woman—after realizing he only asked all dudes—he said that I was the the only one that came to mind. Dudeee, do you know what a huge compliment that is coming from a peer??!! I thought to myself that he must not have seen a lot of work from other women in the area… Either way, I was incredibly honored + stoked.
All the shooting took place in New Haven starting off at Crown 116 with each of us bringing our own steeze to the table as all of us chiefs either shot around each other or waited our turn to direct + shoot. It’s was fun getting to switch up the game, do something different, make new friends, talk shop and sh*t, learn from each other + horse around.
Without further ado, my favorite frames from the day (mostly of Matt + Lindsay, but a few of my other buddies, too).
From my iPhone, the crew from that day, (minus one).
Last year I had the honor of photographing the super sweet + super talented, Sara of Growing Tree Photography. Wanting to update our headshots, we got dressed up, beautified by DD Nickel + our hair did by our girl, Amy of Dana Bartone & Co. Then we actually took turns photographing each other. Making each other laugh + feeling at ease with one another made the experience so much easier being on the other end of the camera, as most photogs are known for not being the best subjects. I’m sure I even uttered, “What do I do with my hands?”
I’m so thankful to not just have worked with Sara, but to call her a good friend. As one-woman businesses we understood each other. Having similar perspectives + a passion for our craft we were able to commiserate and celebrate with one another. Honestly, because of her I know that I would not have grown + be where I am today without her.
After kicking ass here in CT, Sara + her adorable little family relocated to Pennsylvania last fall. Keep her on your radar, Penn State! She’s a gift to anyone who gets the opportunity to get to know her. She’s thoughtful, fun + genuine. She’s naturally gifted, yet works hard. Can’t wait to see her flourish over there!
Love ya, girl! Big things are in your future. xo
