Today’s Laugh Break Webshow 4 PM EST Featuring Celeb Photog Courtney Lindberg

Join Kerri Pomarolli for her Mingle Media TV Webshow, Laugh Break today to find out how the first crush turned into a career for photographer Courtney Lindberg.
Lindsay picked up a camera at the tender age of 11 and developed her first true crush! In her hand I held the most magical instrument that had the ability to capture life’s most precious and valuable moments. Lindsay toyed with my camera throughout high school exploring dark rooms and began seeing life differently through her lens. Having also been a lifelong theatre hound, she went to FSU and received her BFA in Music Theatre. Near graduation all of her friends needed headshots to begin their careers in the biz, all of which she ended up taking. It became her side business, something she loved being able to do for her friends. People LOVED them, and continued referring their friends to her. But still she didn’t consider herself a true photographer…yet. You see like any good love story there is always that moment where you are hit with cupid’s arrow. Well…she has been craftily dogging that arrow until she shot one of her best friend’s weddings two years ago. She gave cupid a clear shot and boy oh boy, does his arrow pack a powerful punch. She is now more than ever fully, madly and inalterably in love with photography! Now she craves the nuance of a look between two souls speaking in their own special language, the details of love…this is her passion. Catching a childhood giggle, or the love in their small hopeful eyes as they gaze up at their parents. Getting lost behind a lens has become one of her favorite activities and she feels very lucky to be able to work with and meet the most incredible people while doing what she loves. That’s not work….that’s pure brilliance!”
