Friends and coworkers of ten years, straight out of lockdown, Tara Lynn was photographed by Danielle St. Laurent with stylist Laura Pritchard and shot in art director Tami Goodrich’s backyard, which was made into a safe outdoor studio space. It was the first time the four women team popped out of their quarantine family bubbles for a work collaboration, done with caring intimacy, so there was personal safety in trusting each other.
“With little to no stores open, this shoot was prepped at Walmart, Target and out of our own closets. Which I have to say is pretty impressive during a pandemic. Tara did her own hair and makeup to keep the group small. This shoot was truly a team effort,” said Laura Pritchard.
“It was a lot of fun and a much needed creative escape from our remote lockdowns. We felt the need to come together and do something rewarding,” added Danielle St. Laurent.
This is the ladies therapeutic collaboration for an interview with Tara Lynn.
