I had such a great time at Vanessa’s headshot shoot. This multitalented little lady is an aspiring aeronautical engineer, and in the meantime a dedicated pianist, horseback rider, Mensa member (!!), actor, and model. Not bad!
Here are some highlights from her NYC headshot shoot.
Vanessa has been modeling since she was a baby, so she has no shortage of experience or great images for her portfolio.
Here we updated her headshots and added some fun new images to her modeling portfolio.
I love the range of emotion here.
One of these days I’ll do a post about my black sweater series.
You can see a bunch of black sweater images here, but I haven’t written about it formally.
The simplicity of a black backdrop with this simple black sweater really lets kids take center stage. It also adds a moody and dramatic feel to otherwise cheery headshots.
Speaking of cheery…
we changed gears a bit and did some brighter images with Vanessa’s gorgeous silk, pink dress. The movement and patterns are so much fun.
Next we took it to the streets.
One of my favorite things about my Greenwich Village portrait studio is leaving and going outside!
We can step out onto the sidewalk for a totally different, cosmopolitan look.
I think some NYC headshot photographers prefer studio or outdoors, but I love the option to do both.
These outdoor images are a great addition to any portfolio, and a fun way to add capture some NYC flavor.
Thank you Vanessa!
You were an absolute joy to work with. I’m so impressed with all that you’re doing, and can’t wait to see what you do next!
Book your shoot!

I can’t wait to hear from you.
