Brand Imagery for Trousseau Style

Shortly after working with Lauren on an advertising job last winter she approached us about working with her to create fresh and personal imagery for the rebranding of her personal styling business, Trousseau Style.

Without hesitation we said “Hell Yeah!”, because we love opportunities to help and work with a fellow small business owner (I especially love women owned businesses).

Lauren was incredibly organized with mood boards and a timeline of what to photograph. She had a complete vision of what she wanted in photography, which is another reason I’m so honored that she chose us. We discussed lighting, mood, and the overall feel she was hoping to get across with the photographs. Kyle and I knew we could provide Lauren with all she wanted and more.

One of our favorite images from the session was the composite hero image on Trousseau Style’s home page. Created by combining a favorite standing portrait of each of her personal styling clients.

Lauren created this lovely set and transformed our Germantown photo studio into a thoughtfully curated closet / cozy lounge… in less than an hour!

With one and a half days of photographing in studio we were able to create images of multiple lovely flat lays, various perspectives of the set and portrait sessions of six amazing women. This can NOT happen without a phenomenal team in place! As photographers we can create images we love flying solo, but only with others can we create magic!

I’m so happy to have met Lauren through working with other women business owners in Philadelphia, the incredible women of Kelbourne Woolens and the divine Diana Duhaime. Thank you for your support and recommendations my gratitude and appreciation will never waiver.

I hired Kielinski Photographers for my rebrand photoshoot and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I had a vision in my head for MONTHS of what I wanted it to look like, and Linette really brought that vision to life.

Excited to watch Trousseau Style’s growth and success, I certainly know they’re dressed for it!

If you’re thinking of taking your business imagery to the next level lets connect!

Lululemon Shoots!

Earlier this year Linette photographed a few Lululemon brand ambassadors for the Lehigh Valley store.  It was a fun series of shoots! Jimmy, Brittany, and Doug were all outgoing, positive, and tireless people - it was easy to see why they were asked to represent the brand!  All of the shots below are on display at the store - I suggest viewing the large prints in person!

Here's Jimmy from Christmas City Crossfit...

Fitness with Qui for Unbroken Designs

Way back in October I had the pleasure of photographing Qui Burgess for Unbroken Designs  ( a local and woman owned business). Using the gorgeous natural light in our Germantown studio gave allowed us to create a bright and light series in a shorter amount of time than if it was lit in studio. Qui was amazing to work with and seemed to enjoy the little workout she was getting in. She is also an incredible personal trainer so it's par for the course right? 

I love getting to know the people I photograph during the actual shoot. I couldn't remember all the details of our conversation from that day so I emailed Qui a few questions and she was happy to answer! Creating a fun Q & A with the great folks I photograph will hopefully provide a more personal experience for you. Scroll down for my very first interview with Qui2Health!

Qui Burgess interviewed by Linette Kielinski January 25, 2018

What do you love about health and fitness? 

---What I love about health and fitness is it’s actually doing something amazing for ME! To be able to take care of my body physically and mentally is my best investment! And to help others on their journey it’s like my # 1 way of giving back!
 

I love the Equality t-shirt you wore during our shoot. What are your thoughts on equality? Are they specific to women and/or women of color? 

---If I could wear that Nike Equality shirt everyday I would. Equality to ME is not viewing anyone (race, shape, male, female) different. Won’t get political or religious BUT I will talk in terms of fitness(staying in my lane) anyone could lift 300lbs with proper training 😉!
 

I wish I had taken a photo of you and your mom, Renee! I loved that she was taking video and helping you with your social media content. Does she do that a lot? Please bring her next time we have a shoot so I can get a pic of the two of you! 

---Ha! My mom, well I’m normally in the gym by myself, here lately it’s been with my fiancé but at our particular shoot it was super random to bring her BUT so needed! She was free that morning so I asked her to tag along. She captured a lot of great BTS pics and vids!
 

You mentioned that you train some celebrities. Can you name a few? ;)

---Yea, I’ve trained a few celebs. Ugh, name dropping 🤭 lol.... LaLa Anthony, Bernice Burgos, Tara Wallace, Rah Ali, Nya Lee, AlQuadin Muhammad, Lian Amado, Alexis Walker, and Darhyl Camper Jr..
 

If your life depended on you doing 1000 reps of an exercise movement, what would you choose? 

---Listen, if my life depended on me to perform 1000 reps of a specific exercise it would definitely be squats! Please bodyweight, thanks! Lol

Thank you so much Qui for your time I am grateful to have had the opportunity to meet you and Renee. Cheers to many more years of inspiring men and women on their fitness journey! 

And Congratulations on your wedding! Sorry folks she's now married! ;) 

-With Gratitude, Linette
