    "It has been an absolute pleasure to call Trina my friend here on Flickr for the past 21 months.....

    Trina is an amazing talent behind the lens, with her positive, refreshing and up lifting look at the world and the beauty that surrounds her..
    She not only warms your heart and inspires you with her images and stories, but with her kind and positive feed back..

    I always look forward {with great anticipation} to what Trina will bring next...

    You are such an inspiration my friend...and I’m so glad I found you! :)

    "Versatile, enthusiastic, original, compelling, and story teller are just a few ways to describe Trina's ability to move and admire her viewers. My senses are often invigorated and infused with great inspiration after visiting her stream. Her photography could silence a gregarious crowd and will leave them with something to talk about."

    "It's hard to believe that Trina has been a contact for over a year already. Seems like it was just yesterday I came across her photos, or she came across mine -- who can remember? But I do remember thinking to myself, "Hey, this Flickr thing is pretty cool. Here's this incredibly talented women going on and on about how "my" shots were so nice and how much she liked them". I mean, really, have you looked at her stuff? It's incredible. She brings her background, experience and talent as a graphic designer to every single one of her photographs. Her shots all of that trademark "Pixelmama" look. Easy to recognize, but nearly impossible to recreate, with color and brightness and a certain special secret sauce that just makes you smile.

    But, there are lots of great photographers on Flickr. What makes Trina special is her ability to humanize her posts with stories, insights and, well, personality. And her comments offer the same mix of qualities.

    I've met so many wonderful people on Flickr, but I've only met one Trina. She's one of a kind.

    "I would never miss this opportunity to be the first one to testify how awesome pixelmama is as a photographer. At first, I was only a big fan for her bokehlicious shots but now, im an avid fan of her stream as a whole. Everyone one of us here has its own style when it comes to photography but hers is filled with warmth and tenderness as she usually takes pride of her loving family.

    She inspires me in so many ways and im proud to myself knowing someone like her through this virtual world. I’m looking forward to knowing her on a deeper level coz she’s absolutely awesome and an adorable person. I cannot thank her enough for all her time spent viewing and commenting on my photos and im really trying my best to give back the favour and most importantly, to extend my gratitude.

    Thank you and keep shooting! Way to go, pixelmama!Ü
