This is where Laura Volpacchio Photography was born. From professional dancer to professional photographer, headshots were the natural bridge.

These headshots are of actors, dancers, professionals, teachers, entrepreneurs, online daters, adorable kids, and LinkedIn's elite. We could all use an authentic, approachable, attractive shot of our face.

Shooting in studio (NYC) and outdoors/on location (anywhere).


• Quite attractive
• Ready to take on the world
• Relieved (I often hear "wow, I expected that to be really painful!")

• Stress Free
• Down to Earth
• Efficient
• Fun
• Productive

your headshot shoot will be:


you'll get:

• High quality, beautiful photos that look like YOU on your best day
• Professionally retouched images of your choice - no face lifts or shape shifting, just a gentle pick-me-up - au natural is our battle cry over here
• Compliments on your new shots
• Taken a lot more seriously

What about hair and makeup?
↳My hair/makeup artist is the best. Read all about her on the services page here. I highly recommend professional hair&makeup (with my girl) to get the best out of your headshot session.

What do I wear?
↳Don't worry, when you book I'll send you an email with all kinds of directions and guidance, and I'll be your personal stylist when you arrive with 1/2 (or all) of your closet.

Are you going to make me do weird poses?
↳Probably not, but maybe just for fun. I'll give you gentle guidance, but my primary goal is to let you be yourself in front of the lens, so that we get images that look like you. I've spent a lot of time on both sides of the lens, so I know what works in the camera and will be happy to direct you when needed.

I didn't have time to get a haircut, can you just photoshop that? And how about color? 
↳I wish I could say this was a crazy question that has never been asked - alas. No, the answer is no. You should look as close to how you want to look in your final photographs before we take the actual photographs.  

What's your turn around time?
↳Speedy! You'll have access to your proofs within two weeks, and your final edits will be to you within two weeks of selection. If you have a specific timeline I will accommodate whenever possible!

Wait. I have another question...
↳Shoot me an email!
