Everything Is Awesome

Over the years I had hoped to get an editorial assignment to photograph Tegan & Sara but my fortunes took a different turn when my intern, musician-turned-photographer Daniel Silbert introduced me to Sara Quin at a show in New York. The first thing I said to her was that “The Con" was my most played song on iTunes. She took my fanboy confession well and we had a nice chat about New York, relationships and their upcoming album.

Halfway through touring that album (the fantastic Heartthrob) their management team commissioned me to shoot new press and merchandising photos, and I couldn’t have been more on-board. It was such a good time spending the day with the girls that it was a blessing we had a full agenda of shots to do, otherwise nothing would have gotten done.

Sara: I just wanna say, the last time…I just wanna say that the last time I saw Tegan naked was when she was leaving the womb…and I was like…
Tegan: No, there’s a million photos of us when we’re babies in the bathtub, and we are both naked…and we’re like, 7 or 8, so I think that’s a lie
Sara: 7 or 8’s a little old
Tegan: That’s what I thought, too…when you were telling me to take my clothes off

"When I was a teenager I day dreamed non stop (especially on school days) about what my adult life was going to be like. While it might seem unbelievable to some I never dreamt about being a musician or a rock-star or even traveling the world. The things I wanted most for my adult self were a) to sleep in every single day b) to live in a loft c) to have a domesticated wild cat that was my full time companion and d) to drink coke from the bottle out of my refrigerator. Obviously I made all those dreams come true. All but one. Its the first day of tour and my alarm just went off. Its 5 am. How did this happen?” - Tegan Quin
