Spotlight Photographer: Trina Dinnar Photography


1. How did you get started in photography and when did you start your business?


I started reading and taking online workshops shortly before my daughter was born in the beginning of 2013. I had always been known to be the one behind the camera so having my daughter gave me the perfect opportunity to start learning. After studying for about a year, I started up my business.


2. Where are you located? Do you have a studio space or do you shoot on-location?


I live in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. It's the perfect location for photo shoots on the beach. My newborn sessions take place in my client's homes. Other sessions take place on location.


3. What do you shoot with and what are your favorite lenses?


I shoot with a Nikon D700. My favorite lenses are my 50 f/1.8 and my 85 f/1.8.


4. What drew you to newborn photography? Do you photograph anything else?


Yes, while I specialize in newborns, I also do maternity, family, and child photography.


5. How would you describe your style? Where do you find inspiration?


My style is clean and classic. I like to focus on the smallness of a newly born baby and capture all the little details.


6. Have you taken any photography workshops/training?


Yes, I've both studied on my own and taken workshops. I'm a big fan on Ana Brandt's training videos.

7. Where do you like to shop for props? Do you have favorite vendors?


I make a lot of my props, as well as scout out local thrift stores. I try to minimize props because I like simplicity.


8. What are three things you wish someone would have told you when starting out?


The photography aspect is 50%. The business aspect is the other 50%. Some would even argue the business aspect is more.



9. What are your favorite things about How long have you been a member?


I just joined this month so I really look forward to everything it has to offer!

12. Lastly, tell us about YOU! Who are you other than a photographer?


I'm a wife and a mother to an almost two year-old girl named Lydia. She is my life and continues to inspire me every day. Besides photography, I enjoy crafts, writing, and enjoying time with my family.
