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!
I'm the queen of outfit repeating and talking about myself makes my skin crawl, but I'd like to introduce myself so you know what to expect when you book with me. First and foremost, hi! My name is Mollie Crowe and I have the temperament of a golden retriever, forever getting overly excited about every shiny little thing and person. I'm also introverted and neurodivergent; a natural born collector and storyteller with the most vibrant imagination.
Being a photographer has always felt more like a natural extension of who I am and how I connect with the world from the sidelines, rather than a learned skill or trade. I'm becoming the type of person who prefers to hoard millions of gigabytes worth of photos vs. tangible things that end up collecting dust while sitting idle on the shelf.
When I'm not behind the lens, I'm mostly likely on an adventure or hanging out with friends at a local brewery. But I find as much comfort in my solitude as I do slow sips of a hot drink in the winter. I'm a homebody at heart and I'll never pass on cuddling up with a good book and my black cat, Binx. Having downtime to myself is crucial so I can recharge my batteries and forever be the quiet girl with the laser-focus in the photo pit, ready to create a little bit of magic.
