I had such a great expereince with Kristin. Bottom line, she knows what she's doing. She gave me one look and took what clothes I brought to her studio and bam, we were off. The seemingly-million or so shots we took made sure I got exactly what I was looking for, and she wasn't happy until I was happy. That's what I love about her. She makes sure you are taken care of. Definitely check out her web site too, it's a great spread of her abilities and talent.
Kristin Hoebermann enjoys a reputation as the "best in the business." That does not come easily. It is deserved. After twenty years of headshots, I have never been more pleased than my experience with Hoebermann Studio. Kristin has an amazing eye and a keen sense of what are marketable qualities in her subject. She is also a color genius, picking outstanding wardrobe choices that best feature one's eyes and complexion. Kristin is easy, laid-back, extraordinarily personable, and ensures the session is fun, anxiety-free, and successful. As one of those actors who finds the whole process formidable, she saw that, and saw to it that I was comfortable and confident. I found that to be her special brand of genius, and the entire office exudes professionalism, ease, and care. I had more shots I liked than didn't, and never in my career have I had such a cache of riches. Kristin takes hundreds and hundreds of shots. Perhaps a thousand or more. She stops, edits with you, and continues shooting until you are absolutely sure you have what you came for and shots she feels will steer you into your market. I have friends who have used her, then used another photographer, and after seeing my shots tell me, "I'm going back to Kristin. I don't know why I ever changed." The proof is in the results. I've never booked as much work as I have with Kristin's shots. If you want work, an exceptional photographer, a professional office, an easy-going, fun shoot, a barrel of usable shots, and loyal supporters, I would choose Kristin Hoebermann without a moment's hesitation.
Getting headshots can be a nervewracking experience, but when shooting with Kristin Hoebermann, this is definitely not the case. Krisitn is one of those rare, really genuine, sweet, warm souls who instantly makes you feel at ease whenever you are near them. She is not only professional, but extremely passionate about EVERY aspect of the shoot (hair, wardrobe, lighting, getting the right look for me as an individual). She took time to review the shots with me throughout the experience to make sure we were getting what I was looking for. Krisitn really loves what she does and when you look at my headshots, you can see that. She is at the top of her game. I have shot twice with Kristin and will be right back at her doorstep when I need new ones. (And I live in LA, so that says a lot) :)
Without question, the best photographer I' ;ve ever worked with. The first time I shot with Kristin was about 6 years ago. Once my headshots hit the street, I began making my living doing on-camera work. Her eye is so finely tuned to every element of the shot: wardrobe, make-up, hair, body language, connection to the camera. Her lighting is so gorgeous, it makes every shot a "wow"! I love that she really takes time with you, showing you what your set-up looks like, reviewing pics between wardrobe changes. The entire session is relaxing and fun and you come away with so many incredible shots that it is very difficult to choose! I just shot with her again a few weeks ago and posted a few of my choices online and I got three audition calls right off the bat. I haven't even gotten them reproduced yet! I live in Chicago and on both occasions have flown to New York just to shoot at Hoebermann. If you want to give your career a boost with excellent pics that stand out from the crowd, Kristin's your girl!
Kristin Hoebermann is, undoubtedly, an absolute master of photography. I had never done headshots before I worked with her and was a little nervous going into the experience. All of that changed within five minutes of walking through her door. She made the shoot so much fun and managed to figure out what parts of my personality could be best brought out through pictures in no time at all. She is an absolute doll and makes the few hours you'll spend with her fly by. Kristin's eye for detail, and for capturing the very best of a person is uncanny and her photographs - more than any I've seen - bring a person's essence to life. I feel I should warn you: if you do not use her, you are possibly making a huge mistake. I will come back to her again and in the mean time I tell every single one of my friends in the industry about her.
I just got my pictures back and I am so thrilled with them that I wanted to thank you again. I couldn't ask for better shots or a nicer, more talented person behind them. Thanks for making me look beautiful!
I absolutely love my new headshots! It's funny, everyone who sees them says, "Oh, Brandee, you are so photogenic"-no one has ever said that to me before, and it's all thanks to you and your talent. You are so warm and friendly that I felt instantly at ease, from the first moment.
Much success in the future to you!
Here's the photo I've been doing especially well with. This week I did work on MTV and Law and Order: SVU, based on the suit photo… The problem is the Hugo Boss suit belongs to a good friend who's getting tired of lending it!
I just wanted to thank you for making the session so much fun and so comfortable. I really appreciated the easy pace of the shoot and the care you took with the entire process. Having pictures taken is a big investment and I just want you to know that from the time I booked the appointment, I had no doubts about the integrity and quality of your studios. It was a pleasure working with you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I can't tell you how absolutely thrilled I am with my headshots. I truly love them and I couldn't have wished for a better shoot or photographer. They rock! You rock!!
Thanks a million, Kristin!
You sent me the wrong pictures. They are simply too hot, good, beautiful, awesome to be pictures of me!
Seriously, they are great. I am so pleased. Thank you for your time and your artistry.
Thank you for the absolutely gorgeous headshots. I'm incredibly grateful to have found you and my pictures are amazing. You make me feel special and important and beautiful and I just had to thank you.
Thank you again with all my heart,
I never thought I'd say this, but headshots will never be a chore again - I actually look forward to coming in again for my next shoot. It was incredibly fun and I appreciate it immensely.
Needless to say, the prints came out beautifully and I've received nothing but raves from friends and industry people alike. (Don't you get tired of so much praise from clients?…)
The pictures are great! I'm getting so many auditions from them. I've actually been really busy since I started sending them out, I get so much work now!!
Thank you SO much for your kindness and professionalism!! It has been SUCH a pleasure working with you. Believe me, EVERYONE will know you are the BEST!!!
I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me. In a business where uncertainty is a way of life, and indifference the status quo, your warmth and willingness to help a virtual stranger at the start of his career gives me hope that there may be more people like you out there.
I consider myself in your debt. If there is ever anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to call.
Your faithful customer and friend,
Kevin T. Collins
I wanted to thank you again for being so amazing! I was scared out of my mind - god knows why - and the experience couldn't have been any better.
I love my headshots and I loved working with you!
Thank you, Thank you,
Thank you so much for all your help. I have never felt so taken care of and comfortable on a photo shoot and I am so happy with the results, as well!! I wish you all the best.
You are phenomenal! Thank you so much for everything. I had a great time working with you and look forward to doing so again in the future!
I just wanted to drop a note and thank you for the wonderful shoot! You made me feel at ease during the session , and it shows in my photos! I have recommended you to many friends who all love my headshots. I appreciate your kindness and professionalism and wish you continued success. Thanks again!

I just wanted to say thank you soooo much! I love the pictures. My family is really thrilled. I've spent a lot of money on headshots and was always disappointed, but now I am truly grateful I've found a professional like Kristin. The pictures look like me!
It's very important to me to have a great headshot! I know this is the first step to getting a door opened, and Kristin, all I've asked you for is to open that door and I'll do the rest. I believe you have.
I thank you very sincerely. Now, I can shoot for my star!
To the best photographer in town
I am so thrilled with my headshots! You are a fabulous photographer. My makeup and hair came out great! I am extremely pleased and I will tell every actor I meet how great you are!
I can't begin to thank you enough for everything! Your work is amazing and you are an absolute doll to work with. I wish you all the best.
Thank you ever so much,
I know I already called you, but I just can't believe the response!
One week after a mass mailing, I was cast in "Peter Pan" with Cathy Rigby. The phone has not stopped ringing!
Obviously, I have a resume to back up my photo, but clearly there is no denying that your photos have given me those crucial extra seconds of a casting director's or agent's time.
Thank you so much!

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful time that I had during my photo shoot with you. It was Awesome! The pictures turned out beautifully! It was impossible to choose which ones I would use - so I used 14 of them! Remember? Ha Ha. Anyway, I have been getting tons of compliments and calls from them. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your efforts.
Thank you so much for my wonderful shots - I am so pleased with the results! Everyone who has seen my headshots has only had wonderful things to say.
THANK YOU for these amazing shots. I'm so pleased with all of the photos! Thanks for making ME shine thru in each picture. Your work is amazing.
All the best
Just wanted to say thanks again for doing such an awesome job with my headshots. I'm sooo happy with them. The only problem is I have too many choices! I'm up to 6 right now and I'm sure there's about at least 3 more that I want. So, thanx so much for somehow making me look good!
All the best,
Eloquence aside, you guys rock my world! I had a great time yesterday during the shoot and learned a lot about what a great photo session can be when you're working with the right people.
Thank you so much for the fantastic experience. I love my pictures and I had a fantastic time at the shoot. I also felt taken care of throughout the entire process. Thank you!
Sorry it has taken me so long to write you, but my fabulous new pictures helped me get a job right away and I left town!
I just want to thank you for a perfect experience - I highly recommend you to anyone who asks - and get compliments on my pics all the time! You are so delightful + so professional. Thank you!

I just wanted to send an extra thank you your way for making the "headshot process" such a great experience for me. All of my headshots turned out amazing, and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your personal touch!
Thanks again so much,
Erin Paige McKenna
Thanks so much for everything! I LOVE my photos…and so does everyone else!
When I look at them I feel sexy, pretty, and smart (for having chosen you!).
