The Magic of Shoot and Share

The Magic of Shoot and Share

We have had the Shoot and Share application for over a year now and love how easy it makes showing clients how their images will appear on the walls of their OWN homes and offices. Here are the simple steps to have a mockup done for your home:

  • Tape an 8.5×11 sheet of paper to the wall you wish to mount your image(s) on.
  • We will use that sheet to measure so our mock up is to scale.
  • Let us know the sizing you are considering.
  • We will add that to the wall.
  • We can also help you work out wall clusters and photo walls.
  • Once complete we send you a mock up like the one shown here for a recent client (permission to show).

Print the experience with this handy tool so you get the right size for your home. Handy rules of thumb are anything with three seats needs at least 16×20 or larger depending on the design and layout of your home to not look too small on your wall.

Need help? Email us your requirements to “” or call us @ 905.925.7529 during business hours M to F 9 to 2 or set up a call outside of those hours.

Thinking INSIDE the box.

Thinking INSIDE the box.

I fell in love with the white box session idea three years ago when I was given the challenge by a client. We did a plain brown cardboard box and used natural light – it was a fun session – but I knew in time I could achieve more if and when the studio was built.
Fast forward to 2016 and we have a lovely 500 square foot studio space in the lower level of our home that is primed and ready for this kind of work. We have a huge box big enough to hold a family five (tight fit) or each one of you – showcasing your individual talents, playing with modern and simple shapes and styling.
This is our first test – we did this one for our annual Christmas card – which because of the constant stream of work coming in 2016 will likely be a NEW YEARS CARD. These sessions will not be Christmas themed but you get the idea of the possibilities for a visual storyteller such as myself with a penchant for the modern look.
Each boy is featured. we engaged some shots using “observation” techniques – looking around the corner, looking up (we have others too in archive that were waving down). We used real hand stands and faked ones – oh and last time I checked my eldest cannot hang from the ceiling like a spider.
Since then we have done over 25 families in the box and we love the results, in fact we will be back in full force to do the for one of our two “The Christmas Experience” offerings.white-box-trinity-design-whitby
Clients have embraced this fun session with families ranging from young kids, to teens and even grandparents coming in to tell their story with us. We have seen baseball players, ballerinas, soccer fans and baseball fans, Harry Potter addicts, readers and just plain silly, family fun inside the box.
Want in on the action? Want to tell your family story? Sunday April 2, 2017 (White Box 3, Easter or Family Theme) – we have two spots that opened up due to severe illness, check out our event:

The Corporate Group Experience

The Corporate Group Experience

We had a great time working with the group at Pace Technical Services Inc to help them capture the experience for 23 of their 25 person team. The team all had updated lifestyle head shots (1/2 body length) and we did a large group shot of the company as well for marketing purposes.

For our rate card on in office or in studio (Whitby) experiences for your Corporate Group please contact us.

YWCA Durham – How we can help.

I have aligned our brand with the YWCA Durham team this year to support women experiencing domestic violence. The rates in Oshawa and Durham are alarming for domestic violence, higher on average than other areas in the province. Sadly the need is ever present and support paramount to help women get back on their feet after escaping the violence in their lives.

What can you do?

Starting immediately Trinity Design is collecting the following self care items for women in both the Y Wish Shelter and residency programs within the YWCA Durham organization. This includes the following NEW items (for health and sanitary reasons):

  • Feminine hygiene products: sanitary napkins and tampons
  • Toothpaste and toothbrushes, floss
  • Hand soaps, hand sanitizers, shower soaps
  • Baby products (diapers, pull ups, baby wipes, baby powder, shampoo, rash cream, baby oil)
  • Conditioners, shampoos, deodorant & razors (male & female), makeup, hair spray, self care products, hair dyes, NEW hair brushes

If you wish to make a cash donation visit:

Tax receipts will be issued for donations of $15 or more. YWCA Durham is a Registered Charity with Revenue Canada.

In addition, consider attending the yearly gala Starry Nights in support :

Thank you for supporting women in need in Durham Region – we look forward to capturing the experience and will accept donations at all seasonal and regular experience sessions, too.

Thinking INSIDE the box!

Life inside the big, white box.

While inside the box the white environment invites you to dress in bright colours (colours we might ask you to avoid in a regular session), crazy poses (we might even push your collage a little further and rotate your pose sideways or upside-down) and using a collage format to combine a series of these “vignettes” to create a “story” about your family.

The environment of the box let’s us capture the experience for you that, one, shows each person in your family’s own loves. Two, it let’s us play in-between boxes to create interconnection and, three, it weaves together a story of your family’s NOW.

The NOW of loving monster trucks, baseball and the Blue Jays, acro and ballet dance, reading, riding your new red scooter. It shows the size of a little man in your lap, the way he likes to squish his toes, Dad’s beard and mom’s epic eye roll.

Each session is unique – each person in your family – parents, children, pets  – all get their own box, their own part in the “digital quilting” of your collage (a great client referred to them this way recently and she was bang on).

We also have a very special goal in 2017 to #capturetheeadults and #capturetheparents. All parents are encouraged to stop hiding from the lens and get in the frame with their kids. I am doing this exact thing getting in front of the lens more and more myself this year – telling my “part” of the story.

We are running our last “The White Box Experience” this spring on April 2, 2017 and as of writing this post we have two extra spots we added on to that event.

The White Box will be back for a “The Christmas Experience” run, join our email list to be one of the first to book in for these seasonal experiences. We already have four spots spoken for since January! Click here to join our list.
