I’ve said it many times before, but one of my favorite aspects of being a brand photographer is that I get the opportunity to work with my clients over and over! I first shot for Katrina, owner and founder of Lindale Studios, in June of 2021, and it was SUCH a joy to travel back to Spain for shoot #2 earlier this year!
For her first session, we focused on photographs that told the big-picture, “whole body” story of her brand. For this shoot, we came back in to furnish some of her more specific needs, like capturing her process for the fine art framed pieces she introduced this year, and showing some more specific uses of the hand painted styling mats she now offers through her partnership with Kiss Books. We also wanted to illustrate her ability to create a suite of piece for events like weddings and editorial shoots, with multiple sizes of product in a coordinated color palette.
Katrina’s products are THE best on the market. Her hand-painted backdrops are stunning, both in real life and on-camera, and her ability to draw inspiration from details in her environment that often go unnoticed by others in inspiring to watch. Her notebook where she pulls together inspiration before beginning a new backdrop is, itself, a work of art!
But more than just being wowed by her work, it’s also been amazing to see how intentional she’s been about purposeful brand development. Everything she does for Lindale has meaning and direction– she’s growing her artistic business like a CEO, not just an artist who happens to get paid for her work. And THAT is one of the main reasons I love knowing her.
Katrina, you’re a delight. It’s an absolute privilege to photograph for you, and to see your business growing and expanding before our very eyes! I’m so dang proud of you and all you’ve accomplished, and I cannot wait to see what’s on the horizon for Lindale in the coming months.
