My specialization is headshots for actors, models and other professionals, including realtors, lawyers, and anyone who needs a business card or profile picture to introduce themselves. Business cards, model's composites, social media, set-up and layouts for all graphics are a specialty, including events flyers.
Headshots are my focus, my forte and my passion. It is the only work I pursue.
From NYC, I worked as a professional model around the world, daily and as a SAG/AFTRA/EQUITY actor NYC for 30 years+. I understand how it feels to be on camera. My goal is to be the photographer I needed when I was daily on camera, to put you completely at ease and to capture your best moments and angles: incorporating years of technique and tricks of the trade. I am still active in the field, work with actors, writers and coaches locally, and still am registered NYC, Atlanta, New Orleans, San Fran, all places I work in production and as a photographer. I am on trend to create that perfect, current headshot, whatever your needs, with a variety of backgrounds. We shoot in your home, the studio, nature or wherever is appropriate to tell your story. Corrective retouching is included with each shooting. Please check out the website to view the many people, styles of shooting and locate your favorite set-up, either on location or in the studio. www.fotosbyKaren.com
I highly recommend the free meet and greet, and your most honest communication. Hiring a personality photographer is not unlike hiring a doctor for honesty
or a plumber....... to take advantage of the FREE ESTIMATE. At this time I come to you, and we take snaps of you in your wardrobe, and we discuss. Maybe you have thinning hair, maybe you have a big nose. The CAMERA sees all. On the meet and greet, we snap your angles, and your fav wardrobe, we break the ice, get our laugh on, and you will receive snaps immediately, before committing to a shoot. We also offer a selection of wardrobe to match your eyes and coloring, if you choose. A picture is worth a thousand words. In this way you will have the smoothest, most prepared shoot, from backgrounds to facial angles.

Looking forward to our beautiful pictures!
I worked with Karen for several years during the time that Karen was a runway model in NYC. We met at a "hair" photo shoot for a big name salon. I was a photographer and she was, of course, a model. We started to work with each other often. I was always impressed by how much she knew about the details of the industry, and of what makes a successful photo - whether for an editorial shoot, or a headshot. She's the first person who said to me, "the smile is in the eyes, not the mouth." Karen made me a much better photographer because of her intuitive knowledge of what happens on both sides of the camera. This unique perspective is what makes her such an excellent portrait/headshot photographer. She has been in the subject's shoes and knows how to coach them to get the most natural image. Her headshots are outstanding. More...
Karen is awesome! I have never felt like someone cared just as much (if not more!) than I did about getting the perfect shots. She is knowledgable, fun to work with, and takes beautiful photos. I booked the first audition I did using my new headshots from her! I strongly recommend her! More...
Easy, fun, and very happy with the outcome.
Karen was really fun! She had such a great attitude the whole time, was patient, encouraging, and my headshots turned out great!
Karen is an absolute delight to work with! Not only does she make the process easy and enjoyable; the final product is excellent! I highly recommend working with her. More...
Working with Karen was like working with an old family friend who happened to be an amazing photographer! She was so supportive and encouraging during the entire process. I use her pictures regularly to promote myself! Anytime I’m asked to provide a profile picture, I use the shots she took. More...
What a wonderful experience it was in working with Karen. Karen is a brilliant photographer who can tell you to drop your shoulder, lift your chin, (or in my case chins) raise your brow and do an inner smile! I have worked with her many times over the years. She has designed brilliant business cards for me and great placards for shows. It is with the greatest of pleasure that I recommend "FotosbyKaren!"

Karen's photos are amazing. I brought her to Atlanta to shoot my whole cast at The Basement Theatre. She captured the best from all of our actors and staff! She's really incredible, and easy to work with! We are planning to hire her again for our new cast photos! More...
Amazing photographer, and an amazing person. She knows what she’s doing, and she will work with you to get exactly what you need. I absolutely love doing shoots with her! More...
