What can I say about Lily...She's an amazing intuitive artist that has a love of story and helping others show their story in the best light, literally. I've shot three different sessions with Lily in the last two years and in the process I've changed my look. Every time, we meet to shoot, Lily will make sure I get what I'm looking for from the shoot and then she surprises me with moments captured that I didn't expect. Hands down Lily is the best photographer that I have shot with and that's saying something since I've had over a dozen headshot photo shoots in the decade prior to working with her. What else can I say, except Lily gets me and my moments perfectly. She'll capture you too....
Lily delivers an authenticity in her photographs, that I have yet to find with other photographers. She captures the essence of who you are, not who you want to portray in front of the lens. She knows when she's got it, and, when you see the shots for yourself, you know why she's THAT good.
I am still on cloud 9 from my photo shoot almost a week later. The experience allowed me to feel unabashedly beautiful which was a great gift because I have never had shots like that done before.
Prior to the shoot I was freaked out because i could not imagine how a Lifestyle Shoot would work but I wanted the variety of photos. You were extremely generous with your time talking me through the process and telling me it would be OK. You were not lying. By the end of the day I felt like a pro and I loved how you showed me photos along the way so I could see what you saw and adjust and learn what worked for my best angles. having my hair and make up done elevated the experience and I would encourage women of a certain age to get photos like this done-just because. I needed a headshot but I got so much more by way of confidence and self-acceptance. You are a wonderful photographer with a great eye for light and a supportive and kind heart for your clients.
I am not one who is comfortable in front of the camera. I was in need of photos for a new website and did not know who to contact. Lily was referred to me from a dear friend who had used her and was thrilled. I logged onto her website and knew from the moment I read the home page that she was who I wanted to work with.
After working with her and experiencing how she was able to draw out of me as to the message I wanted to convey to my website visitors, I was reassured that I made the right choice. Not only did I end up with amazing photography for my whole website, I ended up enjoying the process tremendously thanks to her fabulous spirit, guidance and talent behind the camera.
It was a pleasure to work with Lily on our series of photo shoots. Lily has a great eye for detail that shows her phenomenal artistic view of every shot.
I would recommend her services to anyone that’s looking not only for amazing photos but an exceptional experience.

How do I know Lily is fantastic?
Because I hate being in front of the camera and she somehow made me feel at ease and got some great shots.
She’s the total package...
– creative, fun, easy going and a total pro.
Lily was so easy and fun to work with. I’ve done a lot of shoots over the years, but working with her was the best.
She’s creative and spent a lot of time thinking about the right location and lighting. Of course you can tell how much she loves photography, but I think she equally enjoys the ‘people’ aspect of her work.
I’ve had many amazing shoots with many amazing photographers and Lily is at the top of that list. The experience I had with her was not only one of my favorite photo shoots of all time but one of my favorite human connections of all time. I’ve never felt more comfortable in my own skin and I’ve never had someone be able to capture it so beautifully.
Fellow performers, influencers, supporters and friends, if you are ever in Los Angeles and are in need of photos, You need to see Lily. You can thank me later.

I was lucky enough to have Lily photograph me the other day, and I can’t say enough about what a wonderful experience it was. Her talent and creativity is visible in every photograph she took, and she did an excellent job in capturing my persona. Her welcoming personality shattered any anxiety that I had about the shoot.
Having that much attention on you can be nerve-wrecking, but Lily made me feel comfortable and at-ease from the very beginning, especially during the more serious shots. she is easy to work with and not only will I be using her for future shoots, but I will also be recommending her to my family and friends.
Relaxed and comfortable were two words I never would have used to describe a photo shoot…until I met Lily. The entire experience from start to finish, was just lovely. Lily is generous with her time, knowledge and passion. Not once did I feel rushed or awkward. She captures the light, the moment, and the essence of who I am and what I want my clients to see like I have never seen anyone else do before. It’s truly a gift. My only “complaint” is that there are to many to choose from; literally hundreds! Thank you Lily, for spending the day with me (12 hours) and for the best photos I have ever taken in my life. I never thought I’d say this to a photographer but I really can’t wait to see you again!
I had the pleasure of doing a boudoir/nude photo shoot with Lily a couple weeks ago. We started the shoot on the streets of LA. For me being topless in public, she was very protective and caring for my safety and comfort.
The whole day I felt safe and very at ease with her. She is creative, artistic, and professional. She is also welcoming to your own ideas, but does know what she’s doing. I trust her and that’s why I did this photo shoot with her.
She really captured me. My photos turned out beautifully. Very pleased and impressed with her work. I also had a lot of fun! I look forward to working with her again.
Thank you Lily for a wonderful experience
It was an absolute pleasure and creative collaboration shooting with Lily. Her approach is to discuss your needs clearly before the shoot and to create a shot list with specific wardrobe that will fulfill your goals.
I love my shots! My agents love the shots!
She delivered all selected photos on time and I would recommend her to anyone looking for professional, finished head shots.
Lily Kravets is an amazing photographer because she has a great eye, and is also able to make one feel at ease.
During our photoshoot, her personality and how she conducted the shoot, put me at ease made me laugh, and allowed my inner-self to shine through.
I forgot there was a camera there! She is very professional and is someone I highly recommend.
Lily took long overdue head shots for my website. To say I was unwilling and hesitant is a grave understatement but Lily made me so comfortable and we had a great time together shooting, it was actually quite effortless (for me at least!). Lily is a magician both behind the camera and in photoshop as well. I love my photos and am using them on all of my social media, my websites, my email signatures and just about everywhere acceptable to include a photo of oneself!
Thank you Lily you are an absolute genius behind the lens!
Lily has a natural gift for chasing the light that best enhances your true inner essence. She has a brilliant eye and captured the warmth and intimacy we were looking for in our family portrait. She is collaborative, creative, enthusiastic, and truly loves her craft. Her passion and sense of humor truly put you at ease and made the experience so much fun! My business headshots are absolutely stunning! I didn’t even know what I wanted but after taking the time to get to know me she intuitively knew how to capture my truth, my beauty, my inner spirit, and my sexy confidence that I didn’t know I h I have numerous shots to choose from that I absolutely LOVE! I highly recommend Lily for any and every photo shoot! I will never use anyone else! Thank you Lily!!!
I have done two photo shoots with Lily so far and I can’t stress enough how perfect both were. She has an incredible talent for helping you forget that you are getting a picture taken, while never forgetting the objective herself. You feel so comfortable that it becomes a few hours of hanging out with a favored friend who happens to have a camera and happens to be a great photographer and happens to have an incredible eye for the details that make a portrait work. In the past when I have gotten a picture taken I am usually trying to find one or two possibilities. With Lily that is never an issue. I can’t imagine anyone else ever taking my picture.
Being a model for 15 years +, I considered myself very comfortable in front of a camera. After taking time off to have my daughter, which led to a little more time which lead to going back to school for my art degree, I hadn’t shot in years. Within the last year, it became time to step in front of the camera again.And, quite surprisingly… I was more uncomfortable than could’ve ever imagined.
Then, came Lily. Her professional warm, endearing way of being truly made a difference in my pictures. She was able to engage on a level that effortlessly brought my true spirit to the surface. That discomfort melted away and what she caught with her camera was more than I could’ve imagined. The way she navigates through conversation and clicking is by far… outstanding. Thank you for my fab pictures.
And, you will agree once you’ve seen her body of work
~Have fun shooting with Lily…. She’s a must
Lily Kravets is not only a joy to work with, but a fellow artist with sound advice, industry know-how, and a certain level of professionalism that is a step above the rest. Our collaboration inspired such a myriad of usable images that I had a difficult time in choosing absolute favorites, and had to refer to the opinions of those who know me best as an artist personally and professionally…they, too, had difficulty choosing only a few.
It goes without saying that I received more out of one session with Lily than I thought possible. In one session, I was gifted with killer headshots, a contagious positive energy, and creative revival which I would recommend to anybody. If you have the opportunity to work with Lily, do so.
Working with Lily was incredible.
She’s detailed, creative and very fun to work with. She definitely knows how to get the best shot and what works for every individual.
I’m really pleased with my shoot and would definitely be shooting with her again.

Working with Lily was an experience I never thought possible. Having my picture taken has always caused tremendous angst and anxiety.
Lily immediately put me at ease with her warmth and professionalism. Her genuine love of photography shines through which made the experience incredibly enjoyable and fun!
If you’re looking to get some new shots… I highly recommend working with Lily.
Hardworking, passionate, lighthearted, warm, and incredibly talented.
I was so nervous for my photo shoot. It was an amazing experience!
Lily put me at ease and made it easy for me to become friends with and feel comfortable in front of the camera.
I am thrilled to have had the experience and the photography is outstanding. Lily has the natural talent to capture amazing genuine shots!!
From the moment Lily walked through our front door, we had the most amazing experience. She was professional, easy going and fun to work with.
The images were delivered immediately and my only complaint is that there were too many to choose from!
Lily captured my children and I perfectly and we are so happy to have chosen her and would highly recommend !
