"I've used Washington DC Headshots twice now - the second time was after I had lost a significant amount of weight, and needed updated shots. I'd always thought that going to have head shots done would be like going to the dentist. It's difficult especially if you're a shy or reserved person. My photographer put me completely at ease, and after a while, I even began to have fun. That's crucially important, because nothing shows you at your best on camera like a genuine smile! They presented me with a ton of options after just a short photoshoot, and did some touching up just to make it pop that much better. They turned it around quickly, both times, and I am very happy to be a repeat customer. P.S. - I sent my wife to them, too. She is in PR, and had a whole firm full of folks that needed their shots done."
"Most importantly, Kristina is professional and quick. I needed a headshot and she was able to accommodate me on my schedule and I have never received more positive comments on a photo!"
"After some research, I selected Washington DC Headshots to take corporate headshots that I needed for an Executive bio. Kristina was my photographer and she was great from our first interaction over e-mail as we refined and clarified what I needed done. I needed a make-up artist and she recommended Jesse who did a great job on-site the day of the photos were taken. Kristina was very professional and it was very enjoyable experience working with her. I brought a few options to wear and she made great recommendations. The proofs were delivered on time and photos were great - Kristina is clearly a highly skilled photographer. I would recommend and have already recommended Kristina to others."
"I worked with Kristina to get new headshots for my career in classical music. Throughout the experience, Kristina was consummately polite and contagiously positive, provided an uplifting and exciting environment, and effectively coached me through the photoshoot. I'm very happy with both the retouched and high-resolution images alike, and she is definitely worth the money. I'd recommend her to anyone!"
" I had an incredibly positive experience working with Kristina. She was warmly, friendly and totally responsive and respectful of my artistic choices. My photos came out so wonderfully, I would highly recommend her to artists, corporate professionals and everyone in between!"
"I had a wonderful opportunity to work with Kristina to do my first photo shoot for professional headshots. She made the whole experience stress free and fun. She was great at guiding me through positioning and providing multiple settings for what ended up being a wonderful and relaxing time. And now I have so many beautiful shots to choose from! I can't recommend Kristina and Washington DC Headshots enough."
"Kristina is super talented behind the camera and made me feel welcome and comfortable from the moment I walked in the door. I usually feel a little awkward having solo photos taken, but Kristina was able to put me at ease right away. There were so many great shots when the proofs came back that it was really tough to choose which ones to go with, but Kristina also kindly helped me with selecting the strongest shots when I solicited her expert opinion. Will definitely be seeking Kristina out again and recommending her to all of my friends and colleagues!"
"My daughter is new to the entertainment industry, and we have been told how important a great head shot can be in booking a job. I was immediately impressed by the samples of head shots on Kristina's web page, and after speaking with her, I knew that we were going to have a great experience. Not just professional, she is good at establishing rapport early-on and can give directions well to make the shoot flow smoothly. Service is expedient and reliable. We were very happy with my daughter's head shots and have already recommended her to some friends in the area."
"Kristina Sherk made herself available, despite having a booked schedule, with less than 24-hours notice to take the head shots of our 2 new doctor's at Maryland Oral Surgery Associates. They turned out amazing and we can't appreciate enough how accommodating she was for MOSA! Our company would definitely use her again and we highly recommend her."
"Kristina provided a wonderful environment for my headshots. She was professional, friendly, and she gave great instructions to ensure that we got the best pictures possible. I'd recommend her photography skills to anyone looking for excellent photos from a skilled photographer."
"A great experience working with Kristina. She courteously and thoroughly answered several questions I had before booking my photo session. Her home studio is casual enough to feel comfortable and sufficiently professional to know you are working with a skilled photographer. Kristina was very friendly and checked in with me to ensure we both felt good about the images she was capturing. Also, great communication throughout. An excellent experience. Thanks."
"I am an actor currently working for VA Rep on Tour. I got some headshots done in Richmond, VA ,but they just didn't come out they way I wanted them to. I found Kristi through some friends, and I was blown away at how amazing the photos came out! I felt so comfortable with her! She even let me play some fun music from my phone, so I could relax. She made sure to show me the pictures throughout the shoot, just so I could get an idea of what we had. Totally worth the drive from Richmond to Bethesda. I can't recommend her enough."
"Our advertising agency hired Kristina to shoot corporate headshots at our clients' downtown office. Throughout the entire process Kristina was sweet, professional and responsive. She listened to requests from both our client and our designers, and was always happy to give ideas and advice. We described the look we were going for, and she nailed it! The images turned out great and complement the new website that our agency designed. Our clients were very happy with their headshots and couldn't stop talking about how wonderful she was to work with!"
"Kristina is very professional and always a pleasure to work with. She creates a very welcoming atmosphere for her clients and her work is beautiful. I highly recommend Kristina to anyone who needs professional headshots."
"It had been more than 12 years since I had my last head shot done. My last company paid for it. So when I started pricing for a new one, prices were all over the board and out of 10 request i got three. Then I came a across Washington Head Shots during a Google search and within an hour Kristina Sherk called me back. She sent me over a price list that explained everything and was exactly what I was looking for. I actually was able to get in that day for my head shot and actually had the proofs back the the very next day. She coached me in how to get the best the look. I am very please with Washington DC Headshots and you will too!"
"Kristina Sherk is an absolute pleasure to work with. She's a true professional photographer and very knowledgeable about the craft. She makes your experience very relaxed and fun and stress-free. I am very happy with my new headshots and I highly recommend her for your future shoots."
"Very Professional to work with. Outstanding Photography. A Must for your companies needs. If you are a Business that needs headshots, this is an Elite company that will put your images on the Top."
"Kristina had helped the firm i worked for then with retouching an ungodly amount of portraits -- to the tune of hundreds. She tackled them all with ease and professionalism. Her ability to work with grace, under pressure, made it a stress-free and wonderful experience for all. The end product(s) turned out great and our principals were very happy with the result. Given the sheer amount of work done, and how subjective and personal portraits can become, Kristina made the impossible possible."
"Kristina was recommended to us by one of her industry colleagues. She was incredibly fun & professional at the same time. Her artistry in positioning, lighting & setting made the photograph come alive. I couldn't be happier with her service and I highly recommend her."
"She was awesome! I am kind of a quiet person but she made me feel comfortable and adjusted to my needs! She even ironed my shirt for me while i was changing outfits!"
"This was my first professional headshot experience and it exceeded my expectations. Kristina Sherk is fun, efficient, timely, and professional, which allowed me to feel at ease. She offered many suggestions and tips at the photo shoot that helped take my headshots to the next level. In addition, the FAQ section of her website offered excellent tips and suggestions on what to/not to wear, makeup, etc. that ensured peace of mind and left me feeling well prepared. I highly recommend Kristina Sherk!"
"Kristina Skerk is, without exception, the most professional and enjoyable photographer I have worked with; I give Washington DC Headshots my highest recommendation! I recently went to Washington DC Headshots to update my professional portraits. Kristina and every member of her staff worked together to ensure that my time in the studio was focused, efficient, and fun. During the photo shoot, Kristina was especially helpful at guiding me through each shot to help ensure the best angles and positioning for the images I wanted to achieve. I could not be more pleased with the outcome and wish I looked as good in my everyday life, as I do in my new headshots. I look forward to working with Kristina and her staff for all my future professional photographic needs."
"Wow, what a great experience! I was not looking forward to getting my headshot taken as I'm terrible in front of the camera. As I arrived at Kristina's home studio, and I told her my concerns, she gave me a look as if to say, 'you're in good hands' and she was right! The fact that she has been doing headshots for over 10 years really shows. Her final portrait products are unparalleled in the area! I'm very happy with my experience!"
"I sought out Kristina for theater and corporate headshots, because she came highly recommended by a leading industry professional. Kristina did not disappoint. A talented and gifted photographer, a post production expert, and a supportive creative collaborator, Kristina was great to work with--no question. I highly recommend Kristina for headshots. Surveying her other works (e.g., events, promotions, etc.), I'd recommend her for those as well. Kristina and her team are top-notch--absolutely awesome!"
"I would highly recommend headshot services by Washington DC Headshots! Kristina was professional, punctual and addressed all of my concerns when taking my portrait. I was highly impressed with the final product and will be returning to her studio when I need an update."
"As a traveling actor I only had one day in the D.C. area and really wanted to get some new head shots done - especially outdoors. Of course, on that day it rained. I talked with Kristina over the phone and we made a plan to make it work. She put on her rain boots, got her equipment ready and we found a nice covered area outside and still got some amazing shots. I felt completely comfortable throughout the whole shoot and we got some really incredible shots that I'm very happy with. Kristina went above and beyond to make me feel at ease and make sure I got the photos I wanted. I would highly recommend her."
Kristi photographed my rental apartment which really made promoting it easier. She made it look amazing. She was quick and efficient, I was very pleased! Thank you Kristi!
"Being my daughter's first photo shoot she was a bit anxious and really didn't know what to expect. Kristina welcomed us warmly and right away my daughter felt at ease. We started with a professional make up application which I highly recommend as it gave her the natural look we were striving for. Kristina gave her clear direction so that each shot had a different and fun twist. She took her time and showed us the shots on her camera and we were very excited at the result! We can't wait to see the final product; I highly recommend Kristina Sherk for all your photography needs."
"Kristina is so pleasant and easygoing, which is a blessing for camera shy people like myself! She's always checking in to make sure you're feeling your best, having fun, and are happy with the shots you're getting. I'm looking forward to seeing the final products soon!"
"I'm useless in front of the camera but they made me feel so comfortable!
My pictures came out great!"
"As I told Kristina before I left, she is a breath of fresh air from other headshot photographers I have talked to in the past. Professional, upbeat, accommodating and puts you at ease. She really wants to know what you are looking for in your headshot. I really wanted outdoor headshots and she made it happen in the 100 degree weather!! I find that extremely impressive and just the previews of the photos on her camera met my expectations. :)"
"Kristina is not only a photoshop teachers teacher, she is an excellent and passionate photographer who provides next level work and a great experience for every client that comes to her."
"I would recommend Kristina to anyone who is looking for a true professional photographer. Our session was solid from start to finish and her expertise and warm attitude made me feel very comfortable. Thanks again for your hard work and dedication!"

"I have worked with Kristi twice now, once in college and once after I graduated from Elon. Both times she has gone out of her way to make my headshot sessions convenient and comfortable. Both times they turned out amazing! Not only is she talented but she is funny and will keep you laughing the whole time! I can't wait to work with her again in the near future!"
"Kristi is amazing- she has a great eye for detail and is a pleasure to work with! She works with you on a variety of backgrounds and outfits. And she got my pictures to me really fast after our shoot. I highly recommend Kristi for headshots!!"
"Kristina was first recommended to me by my acting teacher. I live in Richmond VA and may I just say that my experience with Kristina was absolutely worth the 3 hour drive. When I first met her I immediately got a laid back, friendly vibe. The shoot is kept light and fun and I felt very relaxed. Something I'm not normally like in front of a camera. And after the shoot was done and I got the pictures back I was very pleased with the results. I recommend her 100% to any actors looking for NYC quality head shots outside of NYC."
"Took head shots for the professional singer. Very pleased with Kristina's professionalism. She made me feel at ease and brought out the sides of me that I never realized during my shoot. Highly recommended."
I was looking for a photographer around Maryland/DC and Kristina’s portfolio got my attention. She promptly responded all my questions and I could find a spot available for the week that I was in US. Kristina is an exciting, cheerful and virtuoso person, which made the experience even better. She has an artistic eye, she knows very well how to help you take a good picture. The photos for my website turned out great I would highly recommend her work.
"I chose Kristina to take professional head shots of our entire company after vetting multiple photographers in the DC Metro Area. Kristina initially stood out for her enthusiasm, organization and expertise (clearly demonstrated in her online portfolio) and she exhibited all of these characteristics both leading up to and on the actual day of the shoot. Kristina truly exceeded our expectations. She was kind and inviting, soothing any worries, hesitations and concerns from our employees. She ensured everyone's head shot was up to his/her standard while also producing a uniform feel across our company head shots. I definitely recommend Kristina to any company in the DC Metro Area looking for an experienced, charismatic photographer to take beautiful professional portraits."
"I have a very positive impression of her work. She was recently hired by our company to take a series of professional portraitures. I was, at first, hesitant about the prospect of a photographer coming to take our headshots, but was pleasantly surprised with both the speed and execution of the activity itself. I cannot testify to the quality of her other types of work, but suspect she brings the same attention to detail and jovial approach to all of her clients."
"I had a wonderful experience working with Kristina. She was extremely professional and knew just how to position body, head, lightening, hair etc. to get a good picture."
"This was a super fun & professional experience! She made something I was not really looking forward to, a lot of fun! Plus, I love my pics!"
"Our whole office had a great experience working with Kristina. She was was very easy to work with, and for the day she was in our office she was pretty much just an extension of our team. (Maybe we should add her head shot to our About Us page). Jokes aside, she was a pleasure to work with, and really good at what she does. All of our head shots look amazing."
Stress-free headshots! She was very professional and the results were stunning. I highly recommend Washington DC Headshots!
Kristina is a top-notch photographer. The process was stress free and the final product exceeded our expectations.
"She is great directing photoshoots. I would hire her again whenever I need a professional headshot."
"Kristina is an excellent photographer – she has great expertise in how to set you up for your best shot yet keeping it natural and comfortable for you. The whole process was very fast and smooth for our company, and quick turnaround too – we got our retouching choices within 24 hours. Highly recommend!"
"Had an excellent experience during the shoot - she made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. Loved the final product as well. Great photographer!"
Ive never felt so comfortable behind the camera ! She was professional, timely and directed me as a first timer which made the experience a stress free zone ! From lighting to studio set up and everything in between was anything short of amazing.
"Kristina IS AMAZING! I am a MD/DC/VA actress who has been around PLENTY of photographers for photoshoots, headshots, promos, you name it! Kristina was ready to work and so smart about how to make me look my very best in my pictures! I would definitely recommend her for professional headshots! Now what other kinda pictures can I get? I'm ready for another Kristina session! Thank you for all that you did! Fantastic Team! xo"
Kristina and her associate quickly and effectively captured multiple photo options for a professional headshot at the lowest regional rate. I highly recommend them!
