These are a few of our favorite things 🎶💋

One of the most commonly asked questions we get by someone considering a bo***ir shoot is “what do I wear?!” This prompted us to create a hand-chosen collection of accessible, inclusive pieces that our clients have been wearing (or that we’ve been eye-ing ourselves!). We are excited to share some of our fan favorites with you - pieces that shoot well and look good on every-body. 📸

Empowered women empower women.

A phrase that we believe to our bones. Around this time, we like to take a look back on the year past and set goals for the year(s) ahead. This milestone is a special one - with your help, we have raised over $14,000 for local organizations in Rochester that support women and children. It has been an honor to photograph so many incredible people + teams in our community, and give back while doing what we love.

“I am so glad I took advantage of the mini sessions Headshots For A Cure. It had been something I was thinking about doing and you made it so easy to finally do it! I lost my mom to breast cancer, so this was a no brainer for me! I like to think she was with me in the studio laughing right along with us.

Even in the abbreviated session, you still made it personal and I appreciated the dedicated time and attention I received. I love the enthusiasm you have for your work and the care and thought you put into what you do for ALL of your clients. I want to spread the word to have everyone come and see you!

I haven’t even seen all the images yet - but just based on my experience today - I just know it is another job well done and one of the best decisions I have made for myself. It’s going to be so hard to choose!

Bravo ladies - love and hugs from one of your biggest fans - you never cease to amaze me!” -Tracy L.

🥹🥹🥹 The sweetest words from an even sweeter client. We love doing our headshot fundraisers for so many reasons - and this right here 👆🏼 is number one. Connecting with people and learning their stories. And being able to give back to our community - together. Thank you for giving us the honor of photographing you, Tracy!!

“Nina and Natalie, kudos to both of you! For me, being photographed ranks right up there with having a tooth extracted (Gigi Hadid I'm not). Natalie put me totally at ease and Nina helped style my tricky collar! Grateful to you both.” -Liz, headshot client

More often than not, clients (almost immediately after introductions) tell us that they can’t stand being in front of the camera. Sometimes we have to cover our cameras’ ears!! But the good news is that within minutes of photographing our clients, their walls come down and when they see that first photo on the back of the camera, it’s like a lightbulb goes off.

YES. You CAN like a photo of yourself. In fact, you can like MANY photos of yourself. That’s what we’re here to show you. You deserve to exist within your own narrative - exactly as you are today.

Thank you Liz for letting us capture your beauty and sweetness!!

We love you Dr. LaShunda Leslie-Smith!!!

Your brand imagery should be two things: authentically you and attention grabbing (in all the right ways, of course) 💥💥💥

Whatever it is that you do, our hope is that through our studio’s brand identity work, your personality will splash across the screens and pages of your website, socials and marketing materials - so that your clients can get to know the real you and everything you bring to the table.

Your image tells a story. Let’s make yours a good one 📸 Visit our website for everything you need to know about working with NSP for your next brand session!

“The week before the shoot, I was feeling nervous. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to wear or how I would show up the day of. I remember specifically thinking I should have dieted before and planned better. After my consult, my anxiety melted away. Nina was a gem! We laughed and joked and she made me feel like an old friend rather than a new client. I hung up the phone and got super excited about shopping. As a mom, we are always conscious of our ‘new’ bodies and the night before I was a little fearful that I had made a mistake, but embraced the fear and reminded myself of my initial interaction with Natalie and how warm and wonderful she was.

The experience was life changing- I hate to sound cliché, but this was THE single event that changed my whole view on my body.

When I left the studio I felt like the ultimate goddess and probably more comfortable in my own skin than I have ever felt. The way Natalie photographs you and shows you what she sees vs. what YOU see in the mirror is a gift.” -Mallory

TEARS. This is truly our wish for every bo***ir client. The goal is for you to feel as confident, strong and beautiful as your loved ones see you. Mallory initially booked this shoot as a gift for her husband’s birthday, but the true gift is the resulting confidence and realization that the incredible woman in her photos has been there all along.
