Whether you are looking for photos for work or for your dating profile, I 100% recommend Lisa Damico Portraits. I was nervous about doing a photography session. As someone who feels guilty asking friends to take photos of me during dinners or outings (or someone that gets discouraged when you see that your friends don't take the most flattering pictures of you), I decided to try out having my photos taken by a professional. I know some people may balk at the prices or feel like having a professional photo shoot is silly, but I guarantee Lisa and her team do everything they can to make sure you leave as a very satisfied customer.
Before the photo session, Lisa and her team help you with your clothes, style, and personal desires for the photo shoot. I don't have much confidence in knowing what clothes to wear, so their advice helped out a lot!
During the photo session, Kim (stylist extraordinaire) and Lisa make sure you look perfect for each shot whether it's coaching you on your smile and look, finding some fun venues and settings for the background, and keeping the day fun like you're just going out with your best friends.
After the photo session, Lisa sets up a comfortable and warm setting to celebrate the results. Days before the photo reveal, she has a panel that ranks their favorite photos of you. Lisa is there beside you to give you your space to choose your photos while also giving input.
As a client and customer, this was one of the best experiences I've ever had in my life. She definitely goes above and beyond expectations and I look forward to the next time I sign up with Lisa Damico Portraits to do another photo shoot!
Working with Lisa was absolutely incredible! I had been putting off taking professional head shots for years. Within the first 5 minutes of talking to Lisa, I knew she was the photographer I wanted to hire. Lisa sent me a questionnaire so that she had the opportunity to get to know me better and it allowed me to thoroughly think about the story that I wanted my photos to tell. I left my photo session full of energy and feeling like a million dollars. I was thrilled with how my photos came out—I had the perfect mix of images—they were exactly what I needed. I left with 5 different images that I could use for a variety of purposes and immediately switched out all of my professional and social profile pictures. I honestly can't say enough positive things about my experience working with Lisa—I would highly recommend her to any of my colleagues or friends.
Lisa Damico is wonderful! I am not a person who likes to be photographed and needed head shots for work. The last time I had head shots done, I felt very uncomfortable and the outfit I had chosen was not particularly flattering (and very boring) and the end result reflected that.
Lisa Damico makes sure you do your homework ahead of time with a phone interview, questionnaire, and emails to figure out what you need and to help you plan what clothing and accessories to bring to the session. She even reminds you to drink lots of water and get a good night's sleep.
Conversation during the session was fun and light hearted and helped me relax and smile a "real" smile. The only "problem" was that all the head shots were great and it was very difficult to pick the ones to keep!
I highly recommend Lisa Damico for your head shot needs!
If I were to recommend Lisa to family or friends, I would say: you will love her and she is really great at getting a good natural shot. My favorite part of the session was the direction on what to wear and how to pose. It was nice to put yourself in the make up artist and photographer’s hands and trust them to do their job. It was all so much fun!
My favorite part of the experience was the photo session itself. I felt pampered and beautiful! The highlights for me were the one-on-one preparations, how Lisa makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and timely follow-up and communications. The final images are amazing! I am so happy!
I've never had professional photos taken so was nervous about the process. After arriving on site, I quickly realized that there wasn't any need to worry or feel anxious. The environment was warm, friendly, and relaxed. Lisa and the hair and makeup artist knew exactly what they were doing and everything came together so well. I absolutely love my photos and have received so many incredibly positive reviews after posting them on my social media sites. I truly enjoyed the experience!
Lisa’s work speaks for itself! I have received positive feedback from everyone. I loved the pre-session phone consultation and the email tips and follow up. The hair and make-up portion of the session was great. It helped to make the whole experience extra special. Lisa has a client for life!
Hands down the best photography session I have ever had! Lisa put me at ease right away. She was friendly, encouraging, and so professional. I actually enjoyed having my pictures taken, which has never happened before! The session was wonderful, but the finished product was absolutely amazing. I feel that she really listened to what I needed and I could not be happier with the results!
I highly recommend Lisa! The experience of posing in the different outfits and poses was my favorite part. The hair and makeup artist listened to me and I loved my final look. People have been completely over the top with positive comments about my photos!
The entire experience is enjoyable and you end up with exactly what you want out of your session as long as you communicate it. Lisa is a great listener. She makes you feel comfortable during your session and she gives great direction. Lisa is worth every penny!
Besides being a pro, Lisa is a delight to work with! Lisa has great people skills and a warm and ebullient personality that eases the fear factor of the photo session. She has a both a good eye and a good bedside manner! My favorite part of the experience was being pampered so much in the photo prep!
What can I say about my experience with Lisa other than the fact that she is just...awesome! I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking to give themselves a fresh confident new look or just for the sake of that one business shot for your professional media. It was a pleasure working with Lisa! She is so professional and she had everything covered from start to finish. All I had to do was smile!
She helped me pick out some of my best looks using my own clothes, had a professional make-up artist help me look my best for every shot we took and just made the whole process worry free. When it came time to pick out my best shots, she had a group ready to vote on my best looks, just so we were able to get that crucial 2nd opinion of how others might view my shots.
My favorite part of working with Lisa was the energy she brought to the session. You can tell she is very passionate about her work and it shows in how she pays attention to really bringing out your best face in each shot.
Since I put up the new pictures, my dating inboxes have been outright EXPLODING! I'm sure I'll be on many dates in the next few weeks.
I came to Lisa for help giving me that new look I needed, but I walked away with far more than I bargained for. Once again, I highly recommend working with her, you won't regret it!
Lisa is amazing! She was so upbeat and encouraging. Her demeanor really helped with the nervousness that I had when I walked in. She is a delight to be with and I was thrilled with the photos!
Lisa has an artist’s eye and it was such an easy experience! She offered great client service and was so nice and friendly. I loved the outfit changes and the ability to take time to make different looks.
Working with Lisa was my favorite part of the experience! Her easy, laid back and friendly approach makes the process enjoyable. Lisa makes it fun, easy, and you get a great product.
I would highly recommend Lisa! She has am amazing artistic eye and has an easy and welcoming energy. She will definitely make you look great—but also still like yourself. I enjoyed working with Lisa and the makeup artist—they were so warm and welcoming. I also really enjoyed getting the chance to be pampered and made to look great!
Lisa has a knack for putting people at ease and for making the experience a lot of fun. She's also professional and talented, and the fact that the final results exceeded my expectations are really a testament to those facts.
My previous headshot from another photographer was OK, but it resembled a school picture and did not project my personality and confidence. Lisa’s approach makes the difference.
Lisa is not only technically skilled at taking a picture (including having professional equipment in her studio) but she is also skilled at bringing out the personalities of her subjects. My session with her was unlike any photo shoot I had ever had before. It was worth the time spending an hour or so with her and getting relaxed enough to take a picture that went beyond a simple portrait.
Lisa also takes the time to review the portfolio of photos to help you pick the best shots. She is candid in her recommendations; if she think a shot looks great, she’ll say so. Same if she doesn’t think the shot is the best.
Additionally, I can’t say enough about how friendly and accommodating Lisa is. When I get grayer than I
am right now (which is hopefully a few years away), I will be sure to seek her out again.
Lisa provides a great experience! My absolute favorite part of the experience was realizing that I could feel comfortable in front of the camera and seeing the pictures turn out so well. She has wonderful professionals to help and a great end product.
I am blown away by her talent! Lisa made me look like my most beautiful, well-rested friendliest self as if by magic! Having professional hair and makeup was so worth it but the eye behind the camera was the magic wand! You will not regret it and for the quality of the experience and the images it was an outright bargain! GO!
Honestly, Lisa did a fantastic job. I'm not the most photogenic person in the world, but she made me look good! She is very easy to work with, very approachable, and has a clear idea of what your goals are with regards to the images. She works hard at making you as comfortable as possible during the shoot. Finally, she is just a great photographer with a real understanding of lighting and angles and how to make that work best with your photos.
Lisa is an excellent photographer and most importantly she, brings her naturally upbeat, can-do, friendly, confident, warm, welcoming personality to a task that many of us dread - - being photographed.
I am very happy with Lisa's care and attention to details in all aspects of our interactions. Also, I learned tricks that I can use to get better outcomes with other photographs as well. Loved the hair and makeup services too.
Lisa made the entire process easy and fun.
I highly recommend Lisa and plan to use her for future photos!!
These are by far the best pictures I've ever had taken (including my wedding). Lisa was professional and the makeup and hair were first rate. I've had numerous compliments on the headshots used on my website. I am extraordinarily pleased.
Lisa Damico is such a talented, genuine professional. She made me feel like the best “Me” possible and her ability to capture through her photography how I want to present myself to the world was priceless. For the first time, I am proud to show off my photos!
“I just wanted to thank you for the photo shoot on Saturday. You had me completely relaxed and comfortable with something I am generally not. I actually enjoyed myself.”
I had the extraordinary pleasure of realizing exactly how talented Lisa is as a creative spirit and photographer when she did my professional portfolio which I use in my work as the Founder/CEO of a national nonprofit and author. Not only were the photos beyond extraordinary, but they took my work and brand to another level!
Lisa is bubbly, puts you at ease, and directs your shoot with confidence and creativity. She knows what's going to look good on camera and helps you get comfortable quickly! I work in the medical field which requires that I exude professionalism and authority with colleagues, but trust and empathy with patients. Lisa was able to capture looks and photos that exuded those expressions! I also had lots of options with my final images. I was so excited to get my new headshots out there for my presentations, social media, and friends!
It was amazing to see the final images—they were clean and striking, exactly how I wanted them to be. I've never found myself to be a particularly photogenic person, but Lisa's images looked fantastic! She knew how to make each pose count, and made sure that each image I was shown looked both natural and flattering. I love how clean the shots were, with the perfect amount of glamour. It was hard to imagine how the shots would all turn out, but the end result far surpassed anything I expected!
My favorite part of the experience was the shoot itself. Having never done a full-on photo shoot before, I was a bit skeptical as to how everything would go. It turned out to be a blast! I felt like I was playing dress-up when going through outfit changes, and incredibly pampered while my makeup was getting done. Lisa made sure I understood each pose and subsequent adjustment, and kept me comfortable throughout.
It was great working with Lisa! She's very generous with her time and goes the extra mile to ensure her shots meet your expectations and more. I love my photos!! I was looking for some professional career shots as well as some casual shots for my author page on Facebook, etc. I was delighted with the results and that's coming from someone who usually hates her photos!
Lisa Damico Portraits transformed my laughable LinkedIn page into a fantastic networking tool. Whereas my page was once boring and not representative of me as an individual, I now am proud to share my profile and I have noticed a large increase in page views since adding Lisa's spectacular headshot.
Lisa is a consummate professional and works with you to style the photograph into exactly what you are looking for. As someone who hates being photographed, she helped me relax and enjoy the experience, coaching me each step of the way with posing, lighting, makeup, and wardrobe to achieve what I think is the best photography of me ever.
I have already recommended Lisa to several friends, and I would, without hesitation, urge anyone looking for a superb professional headshot or any type of portrait to contact her ASAP. I am so glad I had the opportunity to collaborate with her on my headshot, and I look forward to working with her again in the future.
