Professional - GREAT Business Photography - Helped My Business

I use Karen's photos for all of my marketing for my intuitive reading business. The picture is really important to my business. So many people tell me that they got an intuituve reading just because of my image (on a banner I use for my marketing). Karen's creativity is quite original and she will help your business stand out in your marketplace. She listens to your needs, helps you form a plan on how to pose you. Helps with your wardrobe, makeup, and hair. She discusses expression and how to best position you so your customers will be attracted to what you do - and WOW it really worked! My customers comment on my marketing all the time and really help attract them to my business. Definitely helped my sales. I highly recommend her!

Karen is a portrait artist. Her work is of highest quality and expresses more than just a photograph. Meticulously crafted, Karen creates amazing images of museum quality.
If you are interested in a beautiful, timeless portrait that will stand the test of time, crafted in the highest detail with painstaking attention to character, I would whole heartedly recommend her work. Warm, friendly and patient, Karen will exceed your expectations! I adore her work.

If you are looking for images that come alive before you, the there is but one photographer on the West Coast to engage. Karen Vaisman has the eye and heart of a Master.

You will be thrilled by the results of her work. Easy to engage to create the photography you want! She can guide you with ideas that might not have occurred to you.

As a member of the profession myself, I would go to Karen for my most special work.

There is something very special about Karen Vaisman's work - very touching, something about the expressions and the eyes. She sees through you and captures the soul in her pictures. Maybe it is her artwork that she does in photoshop. She has taken some of the best photographs we have ever had. The kids playing on the couch tickling each other. Rough-housing with the dog - that instant in time that can never be recaptured. All I can say is THANK YOU KAREN. You are our photo fairy and will be for many more years to come!

Her work is truly beautiful, stunning, and unique - you won't find anything like it elsewhere. She individually picks out the best photos from each session and makes each picture into a masterpiece with her skillful use of Photoshop. Very professional, and a pleasure to talk to and work with.

I have used Karen Vaisman Photography for over 15 years and she is simply the best photographer I have ever found. Karen is a perfectionist and her attention to detail is second to none. She treats each and every photograph, portrait and head-shot like it is the most important one she is working on. She is an expert with Photoshop and can re-touch images so the result is exactly what is intended. She relentlessly confirms colors to ensure they are both vivid and realistic and can provide the finishing touches to her work that are incredibly satisfying. Karen recently took a family portrait for us we proudly display in our living room that receives raves from all of our guests. In it, she captured the essence of a magical family moment which she further enhanced using her careful and skillful editing techniques.

Karen is also a perfectionist when it comes to packaging her work whether it be framed, in an album or any other medium. Over many years, Karen has sought out the very best suppliers and she truly has the finest products to complete her artwork. Many people may try to save cost using their own photos for business and marketing needs, though if you really want to stand out from the crowd and plan to replicate your images on literature and brochures for distribution, I would highly recommend Karen as her work will pay dividends long into the future.

Aside from her talent, Karen is also a pleasure to work with and always takes whatever time is necessary to make the images just right for me. As a long-time customer, it is rewarding to me that she is so passionate about her photography and excellence always shines through in her finished work.

I recently hired Karen to photograph a family reunion. The group of 22 included children, teens and a lot of camera-shy folks who didn’t want to pose. Karen was incredible, her relaxed manner, patience and professional demeaner produced pictures and albums that are a treasure. The candids gave a picture of a family-fun time and the large wall portraits were works of art that I will treasure forever. I certainly recommend Karen for any of your photography needs.
