Client Review Images
Dan, Director, Public Sector Consulting
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 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.
C.Lee, Professional Organizer
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.
Amelia, Leadership Coach
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!!
Adrienne, Executive Vice President
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.
Trina, Director of Strategic Planning and Integration
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!
Kyle, Online Dater
“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!
Carrie, Physical Therapist
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!
Sarah, Nonprofit Arts Administrator
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!
Liza, Manager of Exhibitions
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.
Mae, Mother of Ballet Dancer Maya (12 years old)
This was an experience that my daughter had been begging for, but I was daunted by it.... Lisa made the entire experience so fun and relaxing. She had a natural rapport with my daughter and listened to what she wanted. This generation has strong opinions about photography and take endless pictures of themselves. For my daughter, getting her hair done in cascading waves with make-up that highlighted her very blue eyes was a dream come true. Lisa gently guided her in how to position herself and face the camera to optimize the shots. She let us stay way past the end of the session to take as many pictures until the natural light finally ended. The time went by so quickly....very fun! No stress at all.
David, Graphic Designer
I work in advertising and have been on many a photo shoot so I was curious to what the experience would be. My experience with Lisa was totally effortless. Her guidance in poising was done with great ease. She was great in directing me and knew how to get the right pose. You would never suspect that she only uses natural light. It's obvious she really understands lighting and how to use it to get a great portrait. Lisa is easy to work with and a true professional. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a portrait whether for business or casual. I have had lots of compliments on my portrait. She knows how to capture the right moment that brings the best out of you.
Lauren, Manager of Development
I am so thrilled I decided to take my portraits with Lisa Damico! I was a bit nervous because it had been over ten years since the last time I took a professional picture. I always worried about taking professional photos because of the staged and uncomfortable feeling, but Lisa has completely changed my perspective of doing so!
Lisa guided me through the planning process and made it as seamless as I could of hoped for. She was helpful in every regard during our pre-session skype call - answering all of my questions, easing concerns, and recommending color palettes for clothing, jewelry, hair, makeup - all of which I was nervous about having to choose.
For the actual session, Lisa was not only a complete professional, but made the process fun - which really helped me open up in front of the camera. I never had to doubt what was happening or the next steps because Lisa knew exactly how to handle the entire process - from poses, to outfit changes, etc. From starting with professional shots, to blasting Beyonce and using a fan during the more fun outfits/shots, it was a great afternoon that honestly flew by. She had ideas for poses ready and asked for you suggestions and ideas as well.
Lisa also took pictures of my boyfriend and I together and just as with our individual shots, she knew exactly what to do and how to make us comfortable.
Many of my friends asked about my amazing pictures and I have already been recommending them to go to Lisa - and I will continue to do so. Overall, I walked away with amazing professional and more playful photos of myself and a wonderful, easy, and fun overall experience.
Laura, Elementary School Teacher
At first, I was quite apprehensive about having professional photos taken of me; I've never been one to feel comfortable in front of a camera. But, after the consultation with Lisa I felt much better and a little more excited about the process. Lisa listened to what I wanted to get out of the shoot and offered great suggestions about what wear and to expect. Lisa's studio and set up was natural, inviting, and not at all intimidating; I immediately felt comfortable. Lisa was professional, caring, and encouraging through out the shoot, which made me more at ease. I felt really good about myself during the photo shoot and even better after seeing the finished photos. Lisa did a fantastic job! The entire experience exceeded my expectations.
Katherine, Business Owner
As a mom, I rarely get to take time for things that are totally for myself. This was as pampering as getting a massage or a facial, but better because I get to keep these amazing pictures.
Lisa Damico loves taking photos, and it shows. From the pre-photo session Skype call to the photo shoot and reveal, she made every effort to understand my needs, put me at ease and offer insight on poses and colors. Lisa has a gift in capturing people's spirit, and the photo shoot was enjoyable. Her photos exceeded my expectations, and I will strongly recommend her to colleagues and friends who are interested in unique, professional, or glamour headshots.
Cindy, Skin Care Consultant
Lisa is great at making you feel relaxed and this makes your portraits more attractive!! I immensely enjoyed my portrait session and look forward to many more!!
Lilly, Vice President of Business Development
Lisa was very thorough in letting me know what to expect beforehand, helping me pick the right outfits, and assisting me throughout the session to ensure that we'd get the best pictures out of it. I especially appreciated her ability to understand what types of poses would be the most flattering or what expressions I should try to aim for in smiling for the camera. The consistent feedback and communication throughout the session is something I highly valued in Lisa's abilities.
