Connie's photographic artistry shines through her ability to capture candid moments with children, couples, and families.
Each shutter session begins at the client's choice of location, be it a family home, an idyllic garden, or a postapocalyptic landscape ruled by sentient ATMs. After Connie thoroughly captures her subjects' two-dimensional essences, clients will receive fully edited, digital copies of all photographs unencumbered by the studio's logo or Photoshopped pirate costumes. Customers that choose the four-hour session will also receive one 11"x14" collage comprised of five photos of their choice, one 11"x14" print, one 8"x10" print, two 5"x7" prints, unlimited digital images, and a disc containing up to 100 photos set to their choice of music.
As youngsters, Charles and Talamieka Brice experienced the world through drawing. While his life revolved around comic heroes such as Batman and The Hulk, hers hinged on doodling family members and teachers rather than biting their likenesses out of hunks of cheese. When the pair met in art classes at Jackson State University, what began as a friendly rivalry quickly transformed into a rewarding romantic and artistic partnership. Now married, the award-winning illustrators, photographers, and graphic designers use their talent to craft work for individuals and corporations equally adeptly. They capture striking images of families, kids, and weddings from behind the lens, which they preserve as prints, images burned onto discs, or customized hand-drawn portraits. Their skills extend to pet portraits, watercolor and oil paintings, and sculpture. Additionally, their graphic designs have professionalized the look of corporate brochures, logos, and catalogs.

You don't have to be a model to look like one in one of Will Sterling's photographs. A regular contributor to Denim Magazine and other publications, Sterling takes the techniques that have made him well-sought in fashion, beauty, and entertainment circles and applies them to his wedding and family shoots as well, creating memories that would look as at home on the newsstand as they do on the mantel. When it comes to senior portraits though, he encourages kids to be themselves, snapping them smiling as they listen to headphones, strum a guitar, or forge permission slips.
Since 1987 David Johnston has made his living capturing the complexity and emotion of everyday life, turning milestones—such as a new birth, a graduation, or a wedding—into a tangible touchstone that lasts forever. Though he first entertained his artistic passion by snapping photos of scenic landscapes, Johnston tired of the vistas devoid of living subjects, the panoramas free of warm smiles, and the meadows indifferent to the joy of high-school graduations and engagements. David’s photos—with subjects framed in a soft, almost dreamy level of contrast brought to life with tasteful splashes of color saturation—speak to his own appreciation for human connection and sense of community.
The craftsmen at both Image Gallery Frame Shops pour more than 20 years of experience into each piece as they crown artwork, family photos, and precious mementos with traditional and eco-friendly mouldings. They combine these frames—many of which are harvested from managed and sustainable forests—with acid-free archival mats and conservation-quality glass to ensure memories withstand the test of time. Upon request, they can also use nonreflective museum glass to keep portraits from being startled by their own reflections.
In addition to custom framing, artisans stretch canvases, display three-dimensional objects in shadow boxes, and repair broken frames. When they aren't working in the shop, framers travel to customers' homes to assist with design needs and custom mirrors. For those with bare walls, an online gallery provides access to more than 3,300 images, which can be printed on paper or canvas and shipped for free to either shop for framing.
