author, studio

I was thrilled to meet author Lee Kilraine at my studio for updated headshot photos. Her first book, “Bringing Delaney Home” was going to print and her current cell phone headshots weren’t cutting it for a soon to be published author. An absolute gem to work with her sense of humor and charm were immediately evident. She now has two more books in the works in a style she calls “Contemporary Romance Served ‘Funny-Side’ Up“. I love meeting North Carolina talent, and it doesn’t hurt when they are beautiful inside and out!

From her publisher’s bio:

A former Air Force spouse, Lee Kilraine moved seven times over eighteen years before finally settling with her husband in the pine woods of North Carolina. She has worked as a physical therapy aide, a cashier, a waitress, an English tutor, a ballet teacher and a stay-at-home mom. Holding tight to her mother’s motto, “There’s nothing you can’t do if you try hard enough,” Lee returned to college as an adult and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Writing thirty-one papers in two years (she counted) rekindled her love of writing, and she set her sights on her other dream—writing romance. When she isn’t swinging on her front porch swing or watching another of their four young adult children leave the nest (she swears she isn’t pushing them out!) you can find her typing away on her computer with her golden retriever, Harley, destroying something at her feet. Lee is a 2014 Golden Heart® Finalist.

Attorney headshots taken on a gorgeous North Carolina day, I must admit – they made it easy! I first work worked with defense law firm Fay Grafton several years ago when they were an office of three. They have grown to a staff of six now now and new photos were in order this fall. The weather was gorgeous so we moved our indoor session outside on a downtown Raleigh street and I could not have been happier with the results.

This group wanted a modern take on traditional office portraits. Having images that convey both professionalism and approachability is important to potential clients look for in a lawyer. It only takes a second to connect with readers online and in the competitive Raleigh market, and that second can make all of the difference!

Medical Professional looking to update their web presence aren’t limited to lab coats and stuffy headshots.

Professional photos can introduce a doctor to patients before they ever step in the door and put a human face to a sometimes nerve wracking situation. Melanie had a make up artist apply light, natural colors before her session and her genuinely kind personality came through. Being in the healthcare industry may you leave you little time for yourself but a headshot mini session takes 30 minutes and the results are stunning!
