(This is a review of a shoot that happened about 3 years ago.)I was very unhappy with my shoot with Keli. But I place the blame partially on myself. Let me explain.The wardrobe consultation was a huge waste of time. I had already discussed looks at length with my manager, but Keli insisted, so I went. Her major contribution was insisting I get glasses, a lab coat and an apron. Assuming she knew more than I, I followed her advice. “Trust me, your manager will thank me later.”At the start of the shoot, I showed Keli the clothes we (Me, my manager and she) had decided on, and she instantly changed her mind: moving outfits around and changing things up. The makeup artist was a lovely woman but the colors were not colors I normally wear. Then half way through the shoot she felt I needed a hair change and did this hair style… I will never forget… it was just horrible. Even she seemed perplexed by her creation.Keli isn’t so much a photographer as a Stylist with a camera. Up until now I’d only worked with high-end photographers (read: expensive) in New York and had only had a certain kind of experience – where they sort of coach you and work with you. She sorta just puts you in front of a backdrop and points the camera at you and literally holds the “capture” button down as the camera takes as many pictures as it physically can. There is no working with the photographer to create something. It’s all you. This can be difficult for anyone who’s not prepared for it.I blame myself for being green enough to put up with this situation. Basically, I didn’t have my balls on to say, “No – I’m wearing this, not that. No – this makeup terrible. No – I don’t like the bright orange backdrop. No – I don’t want to wear glasses that I don’t actually wear. No – this hair is not me.” Both my manager and I were very disappointed with the results. “What the fuck are you doing with an apron on?! I told her I didn’t need that look.” They were fine. There were not un-useable... but they were not “me.” Before then and since then I’ve shot some really great photos with some wonderful photographers… maybe this just wasn’t my day. But I feel it’s a valid warning: Keli is a “strong personality” and if you don’t match her, she can be a bit… like a steamroller. Just go in with your balls on.Good luck all and happy shooting. :)

Keli is amazing! Not only does she take great photos, she takes the time to get to know you and takes the time for a wardrobe check before the shoot. The shoot is relaxed and fun and she has a great way of pulling the best out of you. I had so much fun with her and I would recommend Keli to anyone. She gave me great shots, made me feel relaxed and was so easy to work with!!

Before transitioning into photography I was a talent manager for seven years. My own company. I had clients as series regulars,
supporting/leads in feature films,recurring roles & guest stars, commercials, voice-over.
I take my knowledge of the industry & marketing with me into photography. I take the time & include a separate wardrobe session before the shoot in each package, even for just one "look".
For styling the wardrobe & really getting to know you, the client!
I work with agents & managers
every day.
On multiple changes I shoot one client a day. We do offer on special days of the month a great deal on "Two looks"including hair & make-up & wardrobe session !
Call for new dates!
It's a FANTASTIC price!
Space is limited. We still want to give quality.
My philosophy is : "I shoot you the way I would want to be shot."
Simple fun & stress free!
That's the key!

Keli's great! I've had headshots done many many times and I can honestly say that I had some of the most fun and best results working with Keli! She takes time, makes you comfortable, really discusses your work as an actor and what you want to put out into the world, and has some of the coolest backdrops I've ever used! Highly recommended,

Keli is a wonderful photographer with a great eye for composition, color, and design. She helped me pick out my wardrobe which is normally a very stressful task for me. The photos she took really captured me and each look showed a different side of me. As a person, Keli is a sweetheart-- easy to talk with, easy to work with. I recommend her highly.

She is the bomb!!! She cares about your career! She cares about what your agent wants, she knows what CDs and Agents want. Never felt rushed. The whole KeliSquireTaylor experience was great! She is the reason I am with one of La's top 20 commercial agencys. We took over 1800 pics and I got to pick from 700 of those. I had choices! Plenty of them. And I've booked two co-stars since shooting with Keli....Love herLaurence Michael Brownaction is the foundational key to all success.

Keli is a great photographer-she makes you feel at ease and gets the best out of you. I can't stand getting headshots but she makes it painless and the results are fantastic. I would recommend her to anyone who is serious about their career. Michael Rivkin

Keli was referred to me by my agent. WOW! What a find she is. Her colorful backgrounds and great knowledge of wardrobe really makes for an awesome headshot. Since you feel so comfortable with her, the shots she takes are great! When I get called in, it is always the shots that she took of me that get me in..... Thanks Keli! I recommend her to all my actor friends.... Ed. Gillow

I loved working with Keli. I had stopped acting for a couple of years and decided to get back into it and of course had to get new headshots, which I was nervous about. I hate getting my picture taken but working with Keli was great. I was relaxed and felt like I was working with an old friend and as a result, I ended up really liking my pictures, which is unusual for me. I'll definitely be going back to her the next time I need to update my pics.

Working with Keli was such a joy. From the moment I showed up at my shoot she was full of life. She took the time to talk with me and plan wardrobe choices ahead of time, and then was so savvy with color that my agents were blown away. We had fun during the shoot, and I left feeling great.She shot tons of pictures and my commercial agents chose 9 selections for LA casting. It was a commercial shoot, but Keli ALSO got awesome theatrical pictures and my agent and manager each chose 4 a piece.It was amazing, I have a bounty of options. Keli is a rockstar

Keli is VERY talented & knowledgable about "the business," and she brings that knowledge to her eye for good, effective headshots. It wasn't until I shot with her 4 yrs ago that I got headshots that continue to get me called in...and that led to my booking 10 commercials since! Her energy is infectious, & the shoot was a lot of fun. Her pics have led me to being a real, bona fide working actor, and I'll never forget her for that.

Keli is a great and talented photographer! The first thing that struck me was at the wardrobe consultation. I had no idea what to wear, so I brought almost all of my clothes - and I mean a LOT of clothes - and that didn't bother her at all. She looked at everything because she wanted me in my most marketable outfits possible. From that moment, I realized that it was just as important to her as it was to me that my photo shoot went well. The photo shoot itself was a great success. I had over 1000 really good pictures to choose from. I picked 5, one for each look. I've been using them when submitting to projects on Actors Access and I've gotten a lot of auditions and a few jobs out of it. I've also been using them when applying to Brand Ambassador jobs and I've gotten lots of work from that too. Most importantly, I just sent out my headshots to some commercial agents and I am already hearing back from them. I would strongly reccomend Keli for the next time you need new headshots, whether you are an actor, model, or professional of any kind!

Keli ROCKS!!! I've worked with several photographers and it's always felt like going to the dentist for me. Was a total BLAST and flew by!! Keli really takes the time to get to know her client and adjust her style in order to get the most honest representation of YOUR personality. For the first time, it really looks like ME! I also loved that I was the ONLY one booked that day. Have felt rushed out the door by many of my previous photographers. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend!! Thanks Keli!Sean Michael Arthur

I've been doing makeup for Kelli's head-shot sessions for about 3 years and findher so easy to work with. Not only doesshe have a great eye, but she prepares theclient for his/her shoot so that the dayof the shoot, they have nothing to worryabout. She actually meets with clientsseveral days prior to select the looksthey need. She takes so many pictures...giving lots to choose from. She is verypersonable and professional.

Keli is easy to work with and fun. She helps you with wardrobe, look and type. She knows your agent, so she knows the style of photo and actor image to be captured. She also puts you at ease and cuts right through anything you might be doing during the shoot that is not helping. She gave the best advice during the shoot which was not to push and create a result. She will do what is necessary to get the shot. I felt very comfortable with Keli. Go see her.

Keli is a lovely person and an amazing photographer. Her pictures really capture both the unique traits of the actor and the characters they would like to portray. Before Keli shot my pictures, I wasn't getting called on any auditions. After using her headshots, I have gone out many times, and booked four commercials.Her wardrobe consultation was also very helpful. I still use many of her clothing suggestions when I go out on auditions.

Keli rocks! She has a great eye for color and fashion. I really appreciated her help with wardrobe, and on the day of the shoot, she made me feel so comfortable. I had so much fun! The pictures worked. I loved them, and so does my agent. Thanks Keli, for opening up some doors for me!

I have shot with Keli five or more times which pretty much says it all!! I keep coming back to her because I know she delivers. Her shots got me more auditions and also helped me with a huge publicity campaign! She understands the importance of your own unique quality to stand out from the crowd!! And in THIS town, that's what gets you jobs!

Keli should be considered one of the go to photographers for commercial comedy. She really helps actors bring out their natural personalities. One of the biggest up sides is that Keli is a former manager. She gives you insight not only into what pictures work but why. I would recommend Keli in a heartbeat.
