Photographer Kathy Plunkett is exceptional at connecting with people and telling stories with authenticity through her camera.

One recent client wanted to refresh their photo library. The shoot was two days at three locations and involved about 30 different groups of people. The time spent with each group was short, and the people were not paid models, so Plunkett had to connect quickly with the subjects to capture real moments. The resulting photos told the story of a busy, vibrant business where people of all types came together.

Plunkett began in photography when someone who had seen her vacation photos asked her to take photos of their band. That one photo session in 2003 hooked Plunkett on being an advertising and editorial photographer. She started a business while keeping her engineering career, and by 2013, she was a full-time photographer.

Plunkett’s engineering background made her an expert on organizing shoots and finding solutions to meet the client’s creative and budgetary needs.

“But most importantly,” she said, “for a photo to feel authentic, it has to be fun for those in front of the camera. I make sure of that.”
