what's our goal?


To make sure your headshots don’t end up in the box to the right.  

That box really exists – we help you avoid it.

We make the process of getting headshots an artistic and collaborative event between the photographer and you.  Many performing artists view headshots as “necessary evils” in the industry.  We remove the “evil” part of the equation and make it a joyful and vital part of your career trajectory.  This allows your unique personality to come across freely and easily in your photos.  

In this highly competitive industry, our sessions leave you feeling empowered by your investment of personal control over your image. And that allows you to feel proud of your calling card.

We ensure this by providing a nurturing environment where you are respected and treated as a peer.  In our very capable hands you’ll feel relaxed, confident, and free to express yourself fully.

Our photographer's unique background as an actor also makes Braden Moran Photography an excellent resource for new actors finding their footing as well as established artists looking to add a spark to their marketing and self-promotion strategies.

We treat each session as a unique experience with a unique goal.  We don’t churn out photos in a “headshot factory” format.  We take the time to get to know you…and then take the time to get the shots that make you stand out in a crowd.


We bring this approach to all the work we do - headshots, weddings, portraits and everything in between.  Our goal is to find the story everyone else misses.  A photo captures not just the subject - but also the photographer's relationship to the subject.  And with our tremendous curiosity and love of people - we can assure you the light you have shines in our shots. 


Because we see it.
