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.

Chef Ryan Rodeno

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. 

Peter Brack

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.

Amber - Tiana

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.

Kate Gill

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!

Bridgette Matthews

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

Rebekah Alexander

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.

Lucy Finelli

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.

Cary Tusan

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!

Laura Brudniak

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!!!

Karen Meisels

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.

Chris Pomeroy

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

Dawn Alane-Kelmenson

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.

Doree Seay

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.

Eloho Josephine Okujeni

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!

Nancy Wolkenfeld

If you’re looking to get some new shots… I highly recommend working with Lily.

 

Hardworking, passionate, lighthearted, warm, and incredibly talented.

Justin Smith

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!!

Betsy Lautman

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 !

Kristin Scheifele

Lily Kravets will capture your authentic looks the way a professional voice coach can bring out your authentic voice. I really appreciate how she takes the time to get to know you either in person or over the phone to know exactly what you want from the photos and photoshoot. She’s versitile, inventive, and has so much charisma and passion. It’s inspiring to work with her. I think the reason she captures authentic and beautiful photos is because she herself has curiousity and love in her work.

I’ve worked with other photographers before, but Lily excels with her sense of humor and ease which provides a perfect balance for the person in front of the camera. She will make sure you get exactly what you want from your photo shoot with her. It’s not about her, it’s about you! Her lack of ego and fervor in the work is timeless.

Thank you Lily!(You’re very good)

Bridget Loughnane

The quality of Lily’s photographs is unparalleled. She is a lovely person and it translates into her work as well.

 

Working with her is a pleasure from A to Z.

Alyssa Schreiber (mom)

Lily is one of a kind.

 

She has a disarming way of putting a reluctant subject at ease. And then all of a sudden, with the most gentle of a nudge, you look your best and click goes her camera.

John Murphy

Lily, I am absolutely in love with the photos that you did for me.

 

I have had an immediate increase in work and offers.

 

Thanks so much!

Trai Lee

My experience with Lilly was great! She took the time to prep me thoroughly before the shoot so our time together would be as efficient as possible.

 

In addition, she arranged the shoot so we would have available the best natural light possible. While shooting, she made me feel comfortable while still guiding me through the different looks I wanted to get out of the session.

 

And she had my shots ready in less than 24 hours! I will definitely be working with her again.

Mateo Leonardo

Friends know that I prefer to be behind the camera — often to avoid having my own photo taken. When I decided I needed a portrait photo for business reasons my first thought was Lily, based on work of hers that I’d seen on Instagram and elsewhere. I approached photo day reluctantly, but Lily immediately put me at ease. She has a great way of allowing you to feel “in control” while actually making sure she’s controlling the light and angles and shots. We spent about 2 hours together, and it could not have been more fun and stress-free. And the results are outstanding. With her command of photography and way of putting people at ease, Lily got multiple fantastic shots…so many, I’m having trouble choosing. She’s captured not just my image (and done it well), but also a bit of my spirit, all while making me look like my very best self. I highly recommend Lily… she’s gonna be busy, so book her now!

Leslie Burgess

I hate getting photographed and so when it was time to get a new professional promo photo I felt sick at the thought. And then I though of Lily Kravets and that she would be someone fun to hang out with and being a great photographer she hopefully could make me look great with minimal stress and drama on my part.

 

All I can say is that the photos she took over the course of an hour session were the best photographs ever taken of me in my life. Not only did she make me look ten years younger I actually had a fun time.

Carolyn Rae Cole

Lily made me feel do comfortable on the day of our shoot. I needed all new pictures for my website and I didn’t want to look posed. She makes candid shots possible and does it laughing all the way.

 

I have referred clients and friends to her and usually get a same day text of how much they LOVE Lily! She has the perfect blend of being professional, playful and creative.

Heather Hayward

Lily does such amazing work. She only shoots when the sunlight is right, capturing the most amazing light for beautiful pictures.

 

She Captures the perfect moments and expressions. I highly recommend her for your headshots, whether for adults or children.

JB (mother of) Faith Graham

Meeting Lily for the first time felt like catching up with an old friend.

 

The idea of having my picture taken was intimidating but Lily instantly chased all my worries away.Her energy is so warm and welcoming that I couldn’t help but smile when I looked at her. Apparently, great vibes = great pictures, who knew? Lily!

Ryan Lee Boyd

Lily’s passion and love of photography reflects in the photos I’ve taken with her.

 

She has a natural talent to make me feel confident, comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, and it was very fun.

 

I give her an absolute two thumbs up.

Yeon Joo Brack and Nigel

Lily was so much fun to work with! She is passionate about photography and this is on display as she spent more than 8 hours with me always wanting to make sure I had more than enough pictures to choose from.

 

Lily is patient, creative, accommodating and a true professional. I was amazed at how comfortable I felt. The end result, FANTASTIC, GORGEOUS, WOW FACTOR pictures. I can’t say enough about Lily Kravets Photography.

Fanny Jane O'Conner, JAM Global Consulting

Lily Kravets is simply amazing! I had so much fun and felt at such ease when shooting with her. Her unconditional acceptance and ability to see the beauty in me created an incredibly supportive and comfortable environment that made me feel extremely relaxed – more relaxed than I have ever been before at a photo shoot – which allowed my true essence to shine through. Lily encouraged me to express myself, and through our dialogue, she helped me create the energy of the specific characters and roles I wanted – all of whom she captured with great depth of truth and beauty. It was such a joy to get to play with Lily – and that’s what it felt like – fun, playful, creative time! I’m extremely grateful for these wonderful headshots! I know they are going to open many doors! Yay!

Kia Hellman

Lily was amazing.

 

I’ve never had a photo shoot before and she made me feel very comfortable.

 

Will work with her anytime.

Max Gill

Lily is such a pleasure to work with.

 

I felt so comfortable for the first time in front of a camera, which allowed her to get truly the best photos of me…and my dog. He’s a wiggly subject who hates having his photo taken.

 

Literally, he fears it. However, Lily made us both relax and I had a great time.

 

We’re just getting started.

Liz Wicker and Red Fox

We recommend Lily Kravets to EVERYONE. She is talented, professional, kind, and truly loves her craft. She was beyond generous with her time and expertise to create magical shots of our engagement. We were initially nervous about the shoot but were quickly reassured by Lily’s vision, dedication, and excitement during our first meeting.

 

Her passion is contagious! She intuitively understood us and the essence of the love we share. Our time with her was a genuine gift and we look forward to working with her in the future.

Amy Alterman and Grace Paradiso

Lily ROCKS! I needed some pics done quickly for some marketing materials and not only did she get it done with complete satisfaction, it ALL happened with a smile.

 

Lily was an absolute joy to work with and I wont work with anyone else going forward!!!

Ron Armstrong

I have had a number of shoots with Lily and they are always relaxed, calm and unhurried. No rush to get that shot, because she gets many, many more than that one. Her energy and confidence is infectious, making you realize that you are there to enjoy the experience.  

 

With Lily, I am able to get lost in the process and be myself. She was able to capture a side of me that I had never seen before. I was blown away, as were my family and friends. My first shoot with Lily was with my Greyhound, Leonardo. Now, I have a photo that captured all the love between us, which is a blessing because he passed a month later.

I will forever be grateful, thank you, Lily.

Kingsbery Baldwin

These are the best headshots I’ve had in years, Lily really captured who I am, rather than trying to mold me into something people think is ‘marketable’.

 

I’ve just put them up on Actor’s Access and I’m already getting a great response from casting directors and my representatives. I would most definitely recommend Lily to all my friends and maybe even my enemies.

Rebecca Berman

Lily made me comfortable at the shoot.

 

That was enough to bring out my best, and I believe it really shows in the shots she took.

Scott Vinci

A photo session with Lily is quite unique. 

 

She has a brilliant eye and her attention to detail is exquisite.  Insightful, completely attuned to shifting the energy and mastery of capturing that single moment. – – A collaborative effort where her creativity, positivity and love of what she does gives effortlessly.  I am so appreciative, finally a photographer who gets it!  Shooting with Lily is a gift.  It is truly a joyful experience and one that yields exceptional results! 

 

Thank you Lily Kravets!

Lisa Abukusumo

I had a wonderful experience with Lily, she is perception, so talented, and most importantly, she GOT ME!

 

I knew pretty much the shots I was looking for, and through a real collaborative experience, I got some kick-ass shots (excuse my French). 

 

Book with her now before her rates and reputation goes up.

Jay Lawrence Kiman

Shooting with Lily Kravets was a dream. 

 

I have shot with nearly a dozen photographers in the past 10 years and it was always such a struggle for me.  With Lily, I felt like she saw what makes me unique and was able to not just draw it out of me but also capture it. 

 

Thank you Lily, I can’t wait to shoot with you again.
