I love what I do! Photography may be my calling, but people are my passion!
My career in professional photography began over 18 years ago, and what a wonderful journey it has been. I started my business with a concentration on Black and White Fine Art Portraiture of children, which I continue to offer and love!
Over the last few years there has been a significant increase in demand for headshots; not only for business executives' corporate websites, but for entrepreneurs' personal branding, linkedIn profiles, creatives, and even for dating websites. I quickly realized how much I enjoyed working with adults in creating their Digital Identities for their online presence, and decided to extend my business with an additional brand, Jamie Kilgore Headshots.
The timing of my recent move to a beautiful new and much larger studio space in Bedford Hills is extraordinarily convenient to launch my headshot business. In addition to this, my updated studio enables me to accommodate the demand and fully deliver the highest possible level of service to all my clients.
One thing I have learned over the years as a professional photographer is that exceptional headshot photography is a fine balance of technical training, client coaching and branding strategies. I have trained, and continue to train, with the top headshot photographers in the world to achieve that balance.
My goal is to personalize you, with exceptional headshots and branding images, to elevate your brand and have your audience relating to you on a level that words alone cannot convey. I take the time to get to know you and coach you through a fun and engaging time to ensure I capture your true, confident and approachable self!

The studio is located in Bedford Hills, New York.
