creativesvibrant brand imagery
a customized photography experience for the creative entrepreneur with big dreams

These are NOT your average LinkedIn headshots. The KLP experience is about more than a picture of your face — it’s about getting to the core of who you are and how you want to represent yourself to the world. These comprehensive sessions encompass your profession AND your spirit.

Introducing portrait sessions for creative entrepreneurs. Give me a couple of hours, and you’ll walk away with a set of 15 diverse images to use in any creative project you can dream up. Let’s create images as expressive as you are!

why choose kate?
  • Exceptional Customer Service

    I’m a perfectionist in every way, especially in how I serve my clients.  Email responses and image turnaround will always be speedy! That’s how I roll — you are important to me!

  • Yes, you’re photogenic!

    My portfolio features REAL people, not models.  Nobody automatically knows what to do in front of the camera, so I’ll coach you! I’ll set up each pose and give you little tips to help you look fantastic.

  • I understand what you need.

    Before becoming a full-time photographer, I trained for 13 years as flutist. This background helps me better understand what creative professionals and small business owners want and need in their promo imagery.

I am not a photogenic person, but Kate made me look and feel like a model in our session!!! She gave great cues about what to do with my body (thank you!! I’m a musician, not a model!), and she always made sure my outfit and hair were adjusted properly without being too fussy about it.

– Lynne Krayer-Luke

I’m so glad I finally decided to go for it! Kate was great at hearing my ideas and blending them with her expertise to create a fantastic finished product. As someone who doesn’t usually like photos of myself, I was shocked by how many awesome shots I had to choose from. Fantastic experience, all around.

– Jason Amos

Kate has been so professional and quick from the day I contacted her. She was available for all sorts of questions leading up to the shoot (everything from attire to the headshot jitters). We had a blast during our session; she was so energetic and used the best tools to make me smile and loosen up.

– Sarah Moyer

I cannot recommend Kate Lemmon highly enough! She was an absolute dream to work with. She immediately put me at ease and was effortlessly able to get my awkward self to look relaxed and natural in my photos. The whole process was tons of fun, and I had my final pictures surprisingly quickly after the photo shoot.

– Elijah Blaisdell

Kate is truly exceptional!  Her keen eye and attention to the tiniest details made all the difference. She really set me up for success, from the moment I signed to work with her, to the final touch-ups of my photos.  She was 100% committed to making me look and feel my best, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience.

– Jessica Petrus

Taking headshots can potentially be an awkward experience, but not with Kate.  She is so warm and fun, and makes you feel completely at ease. She really knows how to capture your essence and personality.   I cannot recommend her work enough; beautiful locations, vibrant colors, unique and gorgeous shots.  Go see Kate!!

– Blair Francis

Kate is absolutely amazing! At my session she was engaging, funny, and always smiling. She made me feel completely comfortable, and her ideas were so creative. When I first saw the photos, I was completely blown away. They’ve made my website come to life. I recommend her 100 percent!

– Krysten Keches

Frequently Asked
1Who are your clients?

My clients are creative entrepreneurs: musicians, bloggers, designers, photographers. They bring something unique to the table and they’re excited to wake up and head to work in the morning. They believe that it’s important to hustle, and it’s equally important to kick back for a Netflix binge once in awhile.

2I just need one great shot for LinkedIn — do you offer mini-sessions?

Not at this time. I believe that your photo shoot should not be rushed — I find that when clients have time to settle into the session and get used to the camera, we’re able to create more authentic portraits. I also leave time for plenty of feedback and experimentation so that your session is a true collaborative experience. For these reasons, I only offer full-length branding sessions.

3Do you have a studio?

I don’t work out of a studio because I love offering the flexibility and creativity that comes with shooting on location. My office space does offer a couple of indoor options with great natural light, but it’s best used as an addition to an outdoor session.

4Help!!! I’m not photogenic!

Almost every single client warns me that they’re not “photogenic.” I’m here to tell you that they’re always wrong! 😉

Being “photogenic” is not about the shape of your face, or even what clothes you wear. It means transforming from scared and uncomfortable to confident and happy. You don’t have to know how to do that on your own — I’ll be there to coach you through posing, and pep-talk you until you look like yourself! You’ve GOT this!!

5What should I wear?

Before your session, I’ll send you a guide that’s jam-packed with clothing tips and tricks (psst – you can get early access to the guide further down this page!) If you’re extra stumped, you’re welcome to send me photos of potential outfits so that I can give you personalized guidance.

6How long will it take to receive my images?

You’ll receive your proof gallery two weeks after your session date, and your finished digital files will be in your hands two weeks after that. (The total turnaround time is one month.)
