Hello there! I’m Lindsay, a lifestyle pet photographer based in Stamford, Connecticut and available for commissions in the Greater New York Metropolitan area. I specialize in making the home a happier place with the creation and display of gorgeous portraits of pets and the people they love!
I have a fun (and occasionally annoying) husband Jake and the most loving and energetic puppy dog Zoë (a.k.a. Zoë the bear, Poopsicles, Boë the bear, Boopsitie, Baby Boopsie, Bumsicles, Baby Bear, among other ones that might just happen to come to me one day). On a side note, since Zoë became the baby bear, somewhere along the way Jake became “the Jake bear,” I became “the Lindsay bear” and my family calls us the Bear Family, which is about as cheesy as I get in life.
I grew up in the Midwest, and after meeting Jake while living in Seattle over a decade ago, Zoë joined us and together we’ve also lived in Hawaii, Australia, Brooklyn, and now Stamford. The world is my oyster and I love exploring new corners of the planet.
I also love being home and baking my own sourdough bread, brewing my own kombucha, cooking in, and having a bonfire in the backyard. I’ve always had a creative streak and as a kid, I was always painting or making things out of the latest craft book I got from the library. It’s always been such a thrill to realize, “What?! I can make that?!” My family makes endless fun of me for always saying, “It’s easy to make, it only takes five minutes!”
I’m sentimental and have this insane urge to remember every savory-worthy moment in life, the big but mostly the small, like the everyday moments of enjoying a glass of wine on the terrace on a summer evening with my favorites Jake and Zoë. Ever since getting Zoë, I’ve been keenly aware of the fact that the odds are I will outlive my dog and I will cry if I think about it for too long. I always have my camera at my fingertips to capture every cute and funny thing she does so I’ll never forget. I have thousands of images but most of them go to die on my hard drive because I never look at them there.
Then I discovered the happiness it brought me to get my photos off my hard drive and into my life by surrounding myself with large wall portraits and albums that tell a story. I’m here to keep you from the fate of a photo cemetery, to capture beautiful moments with your fun-loving dog (or goat or horse) and decorate your home with those priceless images for you to enjoy every. single. day. After all, it’s hard to stay annoyed at anyone you love for too long when you’re surrounded by their cute faces.
“The photos turned out beyond amazing, I will treasure these always. My walls are making me smile continuously!! Love. Love. Love. Girl- you’ve got wicked skills! Such a good photographer. I am spoiled to know you.” ~Jolene
