Bridget Badore  🌻 🌿 small town #photographer in NYC cat lady 🐱 likes to talk about feelings 〰 📸 hire me 💌

I talked about memory on Tuesday in my therapy story — mostly about how I don’t trust mine. That’s probably why I became a photographer and a person obsessed with documenting things. That’s why I love these home videos. I’m constantly searching for truth in them.
This clip shows the last footage of my dad in our home videos: March 4, 1995. The second clip shows the first time my mom recorded us after he died: April 8, 1995. You can hear her say the date out loud, as if exclaiming “We’re still here. 11 days have passed without you and hundreds more are ahead of us.” It breaks my heart every time.
Somewhere in between these two clips, in the blue space between March and April, I crawled underneath a chair next to his hospice bed and chopped my hair off with little scissors. I think this might be one of my first memories, but I don’t know how to tell if it’s real. Maybe it’s just a story. I definitely cut my hair off, but I don’t know who’s perspective I’ve adopted in my memory. Wouldn’t it be cool if there was some sort of litmus test for memories? Brains are weird.
Anyway, I love these videos. They make me cry but it’s good. It’s real and reliable. It’s not going to change depending on who’s narrating it at what time, or how many times I watch it.

A couple snaps from @therizzosband prom at The Gutter ✨ #35mm

Y’all, this shoot was a literal dream. 🔮
@costarastrology’s incredibly cool and sweet Scorpio 🦂 dreamboat @otherbanu photographed in her home for @girlsnightinclub. If you’ve ever used the Co—Star app then you’ve gotten a glimpse into what a fantastic little corner of the internet Banu & her team are creating. This app honestly helped me discover a lot about myself... it might be cheesy to say, but whether you follow astrology or not, I think it might be a universal truth that this app is beautiful and insightful and magical in a lot of ways.🌙 ✨
Thank you so much for thinking of me for this story @tylerkcalder & @alisharamos. 🖤 Go to to read!
PS: add me on Co—Star ;) @ bridgetbadore66

An oldie from #NYCpride 🌈

Women are magic 🔮 @latonyayvette especially so — she’s one of the most honest, authentic, vulnerable, and just beautiful humans I’ve had the joy of photographing. This one is from a shoot we did for her website alongside a piece she wrote about natural hair. #fromthearchives #internationalwomensday

@chelsealeibow is such a gorgeous badass woman. 💛 I’m lucky to know her and even luckier to have her in front of my lens. 📸

Remembering a very 🔥hot🔥 day in August when I ran around town with the gals from @thechilltimes wearing robes & face masks 🌸 #fromthearchives #thechilltimes #PDFM

The very lovely @joliedarrow on my roof 🌸☀️

Yesterday was this sweet babe’s birthday! 🌻 Can’t wait to see what you do this year, Liz. You’ve helped me understand so much about my own grief through sharing your experiences with me & I’m so grateful. 💛

I am a big fan of these two humans 👯‍♀️🌻 @karencheee & @artiparty are two of the funniest, sweetest, most thoughtful individuals and creative comedic writers and performers I know + everyone should follow them, go to their shows, like their tweets, etc!!! Also I think that they are now contractually obligated to host a show together now that they’re in all of these photos??? 🧐

Beep beep 🚘🚦🏁

One of my favorite shoots for @coclicony with Lisa Przystup in Brooklyn in 2017. 🌼 #fromthearchives
