WELCOME

Hi there! I’m Danielle Trina. First of all, thank you so much for finding your way here. Whether you have been recommended from a friend, found me on social media, or searched your way through seemingly hundreds of photographers to find your way here, I am so grateful for the chance to connect with you.

Finding a photographer that you resonate with is a journey worth taking and I hope you find something in my work that sparks a little light within you. Taking photos is my passion and I would love to be able to showcase you and your loved ones in a way that sparks that same joy within you when you receive the final images that will freeze the moments you look to preserve.

It is my desire that my website will help you get to know more me and understand what the experience of working with me is like. In viewing my website, I hope you feel that little spark shine brighter as you learn about how incredible your experience has the potential to be. I want to be sure we have the same vision for your session so you are left with both beautiful memories and timeless images that you will cherish forever.

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson

“MY PASSION has never been for photography “in itself,” but for the possibility -through forgetting yourself – of recording in a fraction of a second the emotion of the subject, and the beauty of the form; that is, a geometry awakened by what’s offered. The photographic shot is one of my sketch pads.”

AUTHENTIC INTERACTION

As a lifestyle photographer and a storyteller, I am all about taking time to guide you into authentic moments with your loved ones during your shoot. I will not be focusing on the “look-at-the-camera-and-say-cheese” types of images during our shoot. I typically capture a few of these for you, but it is just to capture the more generic posed images one might want for a holiday card, to send to relatives, or for more professional use.

Truth be told, you’ll only have to look directly into the camera if prompted to do so! I’m here to calm your nerves and I ensure even the most ‘camera shy’ individual will ease into relaxation to capture beautiful moments. I will direct you into pretty light, ask you to walk hand-in-hand, suggest you tickle the littlest member of your family, or even play ring around the rosy! I will get silly with your kiddos during the shoot and will encourage them to fully unleash their unique personality.

I love when families take over after one simple prompt and allow their interactions to unravel honestly. Sitting back and capturing these moments and natural connections happen in front of my camera is my absolutely favorite. While I can guide you, I love watching your personalities mix, and defined characteristics of relationships with each other reveal themselves. Be assured, I also know when to step back in to continue to guide the session, if needed.

What I really ask from you is that you really allow yourself to be just that– yourself. I’m not here to make judgements; I’m here to capture you at your most honest self. That’s the version of you your loved ones know and that we are looking to preserve in our session.

Please, show up open. Don’t be afraid to love on your babies or your partner as if no one else was there. I want you to laugh wildly, snuggle tightly, slide your fingers affectionately through their hair, tell them with passion and purpose how much you love them, and to keep connecting with your people each and every moment.

You will never have to ask “is this okay?” because if it feels natural to you and how you connect with those you are being photographer with, then it is okay with me.

Allow yourself to be in the moment as much as possible and enjoy the experience. Silliness and laughter is always welcome, tears of joy and small smiles of love are encouraged.

LIFESTYLE/STORYTELLING PHOTOGRAPHY

LIFESTYLE &
STORYTELLING
PHOTOGRAPHY

As a Lifestyle photographer, I aim to capture authentic moments and connections. I do not set with a long list of poses from a Pinterest board to direct my clients into. Rather, I take the time to guide you into genuine moments to capture genuine smiles, booming laughter and soft affections. I am here to document the everyday moments that all add up to create the big memories you look to cherish most. This is my passion! I want to make sure your session is as comfortable, carefree and memorable as it can possibly be.

A Storytelling session with me is wholly focused on taking the time to slow down and really appreciate long embraces, the art of discovery and subtleties of affection. During our session we intentionally make time to say the words we don’t always stop to say that can bring out the best and brightest in those we love. I want create images that do more than serve as proof that you existed, I want to document that you lived your life well, passionately and loved madly.

“When I reveal an image, a moment frozen in time, my hope is that you see inside a soul and are moved by the raw emotion daring to show itself.”
– Danielle Trina
