Meet the Photographer

Hi, I'm Lindsey! I'm a natural-light Virginia photographer who specializes in conceptual and lifestyle portraiture. I've worked professionally in the field since 2009 but have been fascinated with photography since childhood. (I was always the kid showing up on the last day of school, field trips, etc. with a disposable camera, ready and prepared to terrorize my classmates.) Though, I didn't start thinking about it like a career until I was out of high school and awkwardly baby-stepping into the digital era with a Kodak point and shoot. I've come a long way since then, but I will always appreciate all of those confused formative years as they sowed the seed of a beautiful, life-long love affair. 

 

Most of the work I do comes from a very personal place. I will take a photo of just about anything if it catches my attention. So, all too often, I find myself at a loss for words whenever I try to explain what it all means. Inevitably, I fall into an assortment of cliches about savoring beauty, appreciating life and cherishing memories. Even though these things might be tired and overused, they all still ring true. So, I guess all that's left to do is embrace them. For me, photography is nostalgia, longing and remembrance. It's a monument to humanity. It's savoring the art in the everyday, and appreciating beauty not just in the traditional sense, but loving all of our imperfections and all of the stupid little things that make us human.
