Testimonial // Christine Yager

Working with Natalie Sinisgalli and her team for Headshots for Success was amazing experience! These ladies have a passion for photography, their clients, and this important cause. Not only did I leave with amazing headshots, I left inspired!


Testimonial // Collene Burns

"With a headshot, the only thing I about which I was certain was that it should uniquely represent me personally and professionally. As for the rest – what to wear, how to pose, whether to smile – I hadn’t the faintest clue. Natalie and the team had me covered from beginning to end, and the results far exceeded expectations. To have this amazing experience and have the experience contribute to such a great cause was an additional benefit.

I enjoyed working with the team at NSP so much that I’ve been back twice this year for family portraits; they wrangled a reluctant teenage boy, particular adults, and an excitable dog! The results are phenomenal and we’ve heard from many, many friends how well Natalie captured the spirit of our family. We’re grateful to the NPS Team for their work this year, and look forward to working with them for many years to come!"


Testimonial // Achille Cavatassi

I went to see Natalie Sinisgalli to get headshots for the 40 under 40 event. I’m not a huge fan of being photographed, however Natalie and her team made me feel at ease when taking my headshots – we had fun the entire experience. Their creative direction really allowed for an impactful session and I was pleased with the variety in photos that I had to choose from.


Testimonial // Christopher Haigh

“I was blown away by how professional the experience was with Natalie and her team when I did my headshots during their “Headshots for Success” campaign. Normally when you pay a discount for something you come to expect a discounted experience, but that was not the case working with Natalie and Molly. From scheduling the appointment, to taking the photos, to selecting the photos was efficient and enjoyable. The photos were incredible quality and I use them for every professional profile I have. I can’t recommend their service enough."


Testimonial // Lyn Matteson

"The photo shoot was awesome. I never realized what a big difference it makes on the quality of your photo. Natalie is customer-oriented and she actually turned the process fun. Not your typical photographer! Scheduling was simple and the selection process was easy. They do a great job! Highly recommend for a small cost and little time… Thank you NSP!" Lyn Matteson - Executive Vice President, Chief Lending Officer The Upstate National Bank


Testimonial // Jacqueline I. Phichith

"I had the pleasure of having my first headshot taken at Natalie Sinisgalli Photography during their charity event, Headshots for Success. The whole process was not only professional, but they made it fun and on top of all of that they made me feel like I was the only one they were working with that day. It felt really special and empowering....both Natalie and Molly made me feel that way. It was such a nice experience and the pictures were amazing. I would highly recommend it to everyone!" I definitely want to come back soon for another event!


Testimonial // Caroline Tolbert

"I had never had a professional headshot taken but had always wanted one - and I finally took the plunge when I needed one for the Rochester Business Journal's Forty Under 40. I had such a great experience with Headshots for Success. Molly answered all of my questions to prepare in advance and working with Natalie was fun and relaxing. When the newspaper came out, I received a lot of compliments on my photo - and I loved that it was all for a great cause!"


Testimonial // Antra Gilbank

My experience with Natalie Sinisgalli Photography was nothing short of exceptional! From the scheduling process, to the studio visit and shoot, to the final selection, editing and delivery of photos – working with Natalie and her staff was absolutely delightful! The end product – the photos – STUNNING (I could go on and on). NSP has become my Rochester photographer of choice and I can’t wait to schedule future individual and family sessions with her! Antra


Testimonial // Alyssa Belasco

"When I heard about this fundraiser event, I was all in. My headshot was a little outdated and I thought it was a great opportunity to get a new photo to use across all forms of social media for brand consistency. Plus, with a portion of proceeds supporting a local organization whose mission aligns with my values and passion for helping women in our community, it was multitasking at its finest; doing good while looking good! My shoot with Natalie was incredibly fun and empowering. She made me feel comfortable and my authentic self came through in the photos. Women are their worst critic, normally I’m very picky about photos and find something I don’t like about myself in them. That was far from the case here, I had such a hard time choosing just one headshot from our shoot, that I decided this time around I was getting three, and each shows a different side of me." - Alyssa Belasco, Women's Foundation
