Stephanie is AMAZING!! I have never had such natural and gorgeous photos. Everyone tells me they are the best I've ever taken and I owe it all to Stephanie's laid back nature, easy going approach and sensational photography skills. We laughed a lot throughout the entire session which got me out of my head and let my true personality shine through. And my makeup artist was incredible as well. I couldn't have asked for a better shoot and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to everyone and anyone!
After years in Los Angeles and 5 photographers later, I've finally found "THE" photographer for me (and everyone else). Thank you for helping me get it right, Stephanie
Stephanie Girard is the most beyond amazing, talented, and professional headshot photographer i have EVER worked with. If you need new pictures you NEED to go to her along with her incredible makeup artist, Leila. Together these beautiful women, because of their energy create the most comfortable environment for an actor to allow his/her energy to exude. im gushing i am so thankful to have worked with these two extraordinary women. Thank you so much!!!!
"Shooting with Stephanie was simply superb! Aside from her warm and welcoming demeanor, her comfortable and rad studio, and her excellent industry insight and direction... She also shot the absolute best headshots I've ever taken. I can't imagine ever shooting with someone else... If you're serious, don't mess with the rest, go with the best: Stephanie Girard!”
Stephanie's professionalism, attention to detail, fresh perspective and creativity can surely be accredited to her success, but it's nothing compared to the way she naturally brings out the best in her subjects. After our first shoot, I was signed with KSR and booking jobs shortly after. Today, she continues to contribute immensley by driving traffic to my nutrition website/business with lifestyle photos we recently shot. Stephanie is truly amazing and I cannot recommend her enough!
After years of searching for the right photographer I am happy to say that my search is over. Stephanie has a way of bring out natural beauty with incredible lighting and depth and emotion in her photos. The hardest part of the entire process was picking only a few to work with, they were all so good.
Best headshot session of my life (and I've had a few!) Steph is the absolute best! Not only is she insanely talented but she is so lovely and kind as well. She creates a comfortable, welcoming environment in which to shoot, which is so important. My headshot session with her was the best headshot experience I've ever had and my photos turned out beautifully. I've gotten excellent feedback on them and I can't wait to shoot with her again.
Stephanie was AMAZING. I have always considered myself to be not very photogenic, but let me tell you, those days are OVER. She had great energy, really listened to what I wanted, and had great idea's. The shots came out great. I am thrilled A+
Stephanie is the best photographer I have ever worked with. I feel so blessed and beyond excited about my photos. Everyone must know her lovely spirit because she will not only make you feel beautiful but that your pictures will show the best part of you. :)
Let me start off by saying that this woman is absolutely FANTASTIC! I shot with her today and she has a way of making you feel comfortable and welcoming. I laughed the whole entire time due to the jokes her and her makeup artist made, it was all in good fun and it helped me relax and deliver fantastic shots.I am more than thankful for the work she provided me with and I am hoping to work with her again in the near future. Her photography is amazing, her rates are reasonable, and she has a genuine spirit about her.She has such a beautiful essence about her that helps you deliver great shots.
EVERYONE IN LA should shoot with Stephanie Girard Photography...she is THE REAL DEAL AND KNOWS THE BUSINESS!!!!

I had my first headshots taken 20+ years ago. I cannot recommend Stephanie more highly. She's got a great eye and she somehow makes you feel comfortable enough to be entirely yourself. Probably the best headshots I've ever had, and I've had some damn good ones over the years. Do yourself a favor. Don't settle for second best.
AMAZING!!!!!! Best investment as an actor! These shots are true to who you ARE and what you really look like! and they will get you noticed, which makes you money! The return on investment, is never ending! YES! AMAZING!!!
"Run don't walk! Stephanie makes the actor feel so comfortable behind the camera. The session is fun and the shots are the best I have ever had. If you need new shots, GO!”
"Had the best Headshot session with Stephanie today!! Wonderful studio, great lighting, and Stephanie is just so great to work with! She's so personable and makes you feel relaxed and welcome. So easy to just be yourself and it really shows through in the photos. I would also highly recommend her makeup artist, Leila, who is incredible! Flawless natural makeup and just made my hair look camera ready without being overly perfect. Plus she's super nice as well which is great. Will definitely be shooting again with Stephanie in the future!!”
