Hi there! My name is Lindsey Turner and I’m so excited you’re here! This online home has been a long time coming and I couldn’t be more excited to welcome you to my new photography website and blog.
Where my journey with photography began…
I started taking pictures when I was five years old. You could tell that I’d taken the photo because of my vantage point! My interest grew, I got my first 35 mm Nikon and photographed my friends and documented my family’s vacations.
I was fortunate to have a wonderful photography teacher in high school who worked with me to create independent studies each semester after I’d taken every class he offered. I would spend hours in the dark room (this was before digital cameras people) and the thrill of seeing an image come to life in the developing bath never got old!
I went on to college, studied music, recorded a jazz album, worked for arts non-profits for over 15 years and finally took a chance on something that I’ve always loved — photographing people. Putting people at ease and allowing them space to be themselves — eliciting an honest expression — that is my superpower.
What I do and Why
I photograph newborns and families in their homes and in beautiful outdoor spaces. I also photograph musicians, artists and small business owners so the quality of their work is reflected in their visual presence. I called Brooklyn, NY home for almost a decade and love returning to photography people there. I also work in Litchfield County, CT where my husband and I both grew up and we’ve returned with our son.
What to Expect
I welcome you to look around the new website and encourage you to reach out with any questions or thoughts you might have for me. I’ll be sending occasional emails to share some of my favorite photographs and experiences and will share tips along the way. I’d love for you to subscribe (scroll down just a bit to do so). I know sharing your email address is a big deal, so I promise to create content that will help and engage you and of course won’t share your address with anyone! Join me.
Tips will include preparing for your photo session, what to wear, why you should have professional photos taken, what do you do with the photos after your session, helpful tips to photograph your own kids, branding tips for professionals and more. Let me know what you’d love to learn about! I want to share what will be most helpful to you.
I can’t wait to photograph you so you exist for generations!
