Kelbourne Woolens Andorra Collection Photoshoot

We've had the pleasure of working with Kelbourne Woolens, a Philly local and woman-owned distribution company of beautiful yarns, hand-knitting / crochet patterns and notions for the craft. They are also incredible designers and teachers! 

This past October we jammed out to spotify's 90's R&B playlist and christened our new studio with the Andorra Collection shoot. 

Six lovely hand knitting patterns designed by the KW Ladies (that's what I call them in my head), Kate Gagnon Osborn, Courtney Kelly and Meghan Kelly. 

As I type this, Courtney is currently attending and teaching at VK LIve! in NYC.


We also photographed each color of the Andorra yarn line and skein beauty shots of the colors in the collection. If you're looking for a photographer with SSS (skein styling skills), look no further ;)


A photoshoot isn't complete without a few BTS shots. Notice Kate (center), she is always making something.  


Group shot of the team (minus Kyle - who took the photo). We'll have to set the camera on a tripod for the team shot and have a champagne toast when we wrap up next time! 

Thank you to the amazing folks who made this shoot possible:

30 Minutes in the Snow...Go!

We had a small snow squall of a few inches this past Saturday in Philadelphia. I love walking around the neighborhood especially during a snowstorm when everything is peaceful and quiet. It was the perfect chance to try my new 'photo' gloves Kyle had given me for Christmas. I had 30 minutes to enjoy a solo venture and make some images before having to head downtown.

Quick snap of Kyle cleaning off the sidewalk ;)


I made it up the street to the Roxborough H.S. tennis courts, where our boys learned to ride their bikes a few years ago. 


Gorgas park had a few early morning sledders.

The boys and I are hoping for some serious snowfall this winter. We've got 2 more months, surely we'll see more than 3 inches?

How it all began

Hello and thank you for popping in on our Kielinski Photographers Blog! We hope you enjoy our posts and comment when you can.

Intros can get lengthy. Luckily for you, we don't go on and on about ourselves - but we do love hearing stories and creating images that help illustrate them. So we'll try to make this first blog post short and sweet.

We met while majoring in photography at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. Dated a few years after graduating, got married, started a family, purchased a home and rescued a few dogs. We live in the Roxborough neighborhood of Philadelphia.


Let's get into it a bit more...

Kyle had worked for over 20 years as an in-house editorial photographer for a medical trade magazine publisher. I worked as a photojournalist for Montgomery Newspapers.

We married in 2006 and had our first child in 2007. Still working as a staff photographer, Kyle 'brought home (most) of the bacon' and I pursued the occasional wedding and family documentary work while being staying home with our baby boy. In 2010 our little family grew with another baby boy (born in our Philly home)! In addition to our two boys Carver and Ronin, we also have Nash (short for National), and Prancer.

This year we joined forces in the photography realm merging Kyle's studio and on-location lighting prowess with my faster-paced documentary style. We've had amazing clients and incredible subjects in 2017, from architecture to sports! Looking forward to the years ahead and all the stories to share.

* We love meeting for coffee and/or dog park playdates if you would like to hear more about us!
