Remarkable Dallas Authors and Their Creative Head Shots
I’ve been an avid reader my whole life. As a kid, fantasy books would get devoured one after another, and I spent plenty of time at the library. These days, I don’t get nearly as much time as I would like to read, but I’ve found another way to support the literary world: photographing head shots for some remarkable authors!
I love capturing all sorts of head shots but getting to work with other creatives is artistically rewarding in its own unique way. I get to help show these authors in a way that represents their art and their creative style. It usually means fun props, exciting clothing, and different sorts of settings! Nothing wrong with a classic professional head shot of course, but I love the variety that comes with these sorts of sessions!
Are you in need of a head shot for your business and/or creative pursuits? I’d love to help make that happen, so feel free to reach out to me here.
Be sure to scroll down and view links to each author’s work! I get to work with some amazing people.
Elizabeth Kupferman is The Advanced Bitch and f*cking amazing badass woman who wrote two books about how to manage grief and trust in a magical, irreverent way. https://www.advancedbitches.com/
Courtney Brannon Donoghue is a Film & Media Studies professor at UNT and also an author of two publications, one is coming out this summer! I loved her retro inspired style and always appreciate connecting with fellow creative women who are dedicated to their craft and in lifting up other women!

Stuart Hausmann is a long time friend (he’s known Nick since middle school, and I’ve known him since living across the hall in KC Hall at UT Arlington). He’s an incredible painter and is days away from celebrating the release of Linus, a children’s storybook he wrote and illustrated for. We took these portraits in the field by my house using the golden hour sun as the light source!
