I shot 300 frames with Kristi. Most were usable. 98 were great. At least 50 were fantastic. The shoot was easy and relaxed and the pictures pop without looking like we're trying. Reasonable rates. I've been getting headshots taken for over 25 years and this is my favorite session by far.

This was an amazing experience. It was a pleasure from the first inquiry all the way to the final result. Not only is Kristi a skilled photographer, but she is incredibly communicative and responsive to your questions. She gives wonderful tips on how to prepare for your shoot and then takes you through the process with an energy and enthusiasm that is contagious. It was such a relief to see how it was going throughout the shoot and then to walk away with my photos-- so that I could start debating my top shot that day. I know that I will be coming back for more when it is time to change my pictures. : )

Kristi was a dream to work with. Headshots can be stressful, you want to be able to relax and be yourself and trust that the photographer will help lead you down that path, Kristi did just that. The enviornment was comfortable and getting a great photo, or rather many photos was just what we did. I'm so happy with my shots...Thank you Kristi!

Kristi was wonderful with my daughter's head shots. She is great with kids and adults alike as she expertly captures her client's best qualities. My daughter was very comfortable, had a great time, and we came away with fabulous shots! Kristi put us at ease with her knowledge, experience, and friendly, upbeat approach.We highly recommend her!

Kristi is a gifted photographer. She has a special technique that I will not divulge that makes it a very relaxing photo shoot. She's also fun and has a great sense of humor. Looking forward to getting more shots in the future with Kristi.

The easiest, most successful headshot session ever! I can't brag enough, but the highlights are--AWESOME photographs. Choosing my favorites was ridiculously difficult.-Great prep work from Kristi so that the day of would go well-Extremely quick turn-around. I had a CD of all the images the next day and my retouches two days after I had selected them-A caring attitude. Kristi made sure I was pleased with every single look prior to moving on. I got a chance to preview the pictures and if the shirt,hair,make-up wasn't working, we went back and shot the look again.My session with Kristi was great-and I will definitely be a returning client!

I absolutely love my new shots! Kristi gives excellent direction, and makes the environment comfortable and at ease. This was the best photoshoot that I've ever done in my 4 years here in LA, and they're the most affordable! I highly recommend Coconut photo!

Great experience! When I arrived, Kristi was already set up and ready to go. She was fast and knew exactly what I needed. She worked me in on a last minute notice for a session and shot exactly what was requested by my agent without trying to change that to massage her artistic ego like some photographers do. I was in and out in an hour, got great shots and her prices were VERY reasonable. I would highly recommend her.

This was an amazing session! Kristi was friendly and professional. She made me feel comfortable and her choice of color and wardrobe made my headshots beautiful. I had a hard time selecting which one to use since there were so many great shots. She knows her stuff and I have been telling everyone about her. She also responded in a quick manner and delivered my final set within a week. I am beyond happy with her work!

From the very first email exchange through to the retouching of my amazingly, fantastic final shots, my experience with Kristi was one of pure fun and enjoyment. Her skills as a photographer are stellar, and coupled with her vast knowledge of the industry and it's inner workings she is more than qualified and able to produce for you the tools you need to attain your goals, just as she did for me!

Kristi is very professional, fun and really knows what she is doing. I trusted her 100 percent. She is knowledgable about the industry and what casting directors look for in a shot. She is also fun to work with and fun. I have some awesome headshots.

I did my research before deciding to ask Kristi to take my headshots, so I was confident that they'd turn out great; she still surpassed my expectations. The session was super fun, relaxed, and professional. What's more, she oozes a "can do" attitude that simply excites you -- about the session, the industry, and your career. I cannot believe how happy I am with my photos, and I've already booked a few things based on my headshots alone!

I LOVE my new headshots from Coconut Photo! There were SO MANY good ones, it was hard to make choices for my 8x10s! Kristi has a great eye, and her headshots are fresh and natural-looking. I am very pleased with the results and will definitely return at a later date!

Kristi is fantastic and I highly recommend her. She is able to capture your personality in her shots, making them stand out from the rest. Her prices are reasonable and she shoots until you are satisfied that you have what you need. She photographs kids and adults equally well and puts you at ease, so that your true personality and essence shines through.

Shooting with Kristi was everything a headshot session should be but never is: fun, easygoing, fast, efficient! Hands down, the best session Ive EVER had. The photos I was able to get from her were the best Ive ever had in terms of both specificity and diversity. I couldnt be happier and that's something Ive never been able to say about shooting headshots. And as a bonus, Kristi is just a delight! I strongly recommend her!!!

Kristi's pics of me were incredible. I was relaxed and it came through in the shots. The backgrounds are vibrant and help me pop off casting directors' computer screens. Best headshot value I know of in town.

Just had my son's headshots done. Kristi is Great with kids. My 10 yr old son told me, "she has a great set up and she is professional!" That's a kid's opinion, and they are the toughest critics. I like the way she spends quality time with her clients, and puts her artistic touch into every session.We highly recomend her!

The Phantom's Leading Ladies is a concert group and we used Kristi for our promotional shots four years ago and they are still getting work for us. We used several of her shots in our brochures and on our website. We love her!!

If you're like me and HATE getting headshots done, then you will absolutely love Kristi. She has an incredible way to make you feel very comfortable and confident. While everybody is switching to digital shots, for the ease and sheer volume, nobody is doing shots that pop and show the REAL you. I've never been happier with any other headshots or experience. Ever.

In the session with Kristi, I had the rare experience of being totally at ease and relaxed from the very beginning of the session - therefore I got so many great shots from which to choose. She seemed to know immediately what worked for me, and both my agent and manager love the shots.
