Hi! Welcome to Little Blackbird Photo, where stories of the underground music scene and indie venues come to life through bold, emotive and intimate live stills and portraits. My mission is to preserve the fleeting, uncut moments of music - from sticky dive bar floors to catered green rooms and everything in-between (let your freak flag fly and feel free to get a little weird). My dream is to travel from city to city capturing the journeys of artists and bands who feel like family. I'm down for adventure, and available for portrait sessions and live gigs in Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Columbus, New York, Detroit, Indianapolis, and throughout the Midwest. So if you aren't afraid to dream big, I think we're going to be really good friends. For touring and booking inquiries, please fill out the contact form below. I look forward to chasing sunsets and stage lights with you!
Here's a short summary of who I am so you can know exactly what to expect when you book with me. My name is Mollie Crowe, and I'm the owner and lady behind the lens. I'm a free spirit with an old soul; a natural-born collector, wanderer, wallflower and daydreamer; somewhere between a rock 'n roll wild child and a quiet emo kid. I'm the type of person who always carries pen and paper because my mind moves a mile a minute with random ideas. I find comfort in rainy afternoons, taking solo joyrides, and the bass lines of '70s rock songs. I was born a week late and ever since, I've been the kind of person who blooms on their own time. For me, being a photographer means being a visual storyteller while capturing moments that will someday be a part of our history. I have a very strong belief that I was put on this earth to do just that, so I'm forever going to be the quiet girl with the laser-focus in the photo pit, ready to create a little bit of magic.
