I would recommend Laura to absolutely anyone looking to get headshots done!"

She’s quick to assess light and angle and made me look my best, even though I had a cold. Since she’s a dancer herself, she has an eye for capturing movement with attention to proper dance technique. I look forward to working with her again! Thanks Laura!!!"

Jesse Singer

This is an image "Having my head shots taken by Laura Volpacchio was a great decision. Being a dancer and model herself she knew exactly what angels and lighting would be best. She also made me feel very comfortable during the shoot. Her rate is great and the shots came out better than shots I've gotten from other photographers who charged double or triple what she charges. Thanks Laura!"
