Christina Marie Williams helms Nonchalant View Photography, where she blends classic portraiture and modern photography into her own picture-taking style. When she captures a photograph, she emphasizes the feeling and beauty of a specific moment, making a fleeting interaction, emotion, or scene permanent. Her portfolio includes striking nature scenes, animals, festivals, and people.
The head photographer at LRK Studios draws on her experience as a model when constructing comfortable photo shoots for her clients. Held in-studio or at an offsite location that holds special significance to the client, shoots can capture the beauty of a pregnant belly, the bond between engaged couples or newlyweds, or the fuzzy heads of newborn babies unobstructed by the toupees they usually wear. Alternatively, clients can don lingerie or pose for tasteful nude shots during boudoir sessions that aim to capture their sensual side.
The shutterbug duo of Sweet Action Photography likes to keep all photo sessions light and fun. That way, clients loosen up and let their personalities shine through during portrait shoots for families, couples, kids, and newborns. While the mood is laid-back, the photographers come to each session with a photojournalistic approach, professionally capturing those personalities, emotions, and moments in crisply composed images. Weddings and special events such as military balls are also within their vast scope of skills.
Trent Grasse understands that in his photo shoots, he is the constant and his subjects are the variable. Because of this, he lets his subjects guide each shoot. Clients not only determine the location of their shoot, but they regulate the pace and mood of the day's adventure. Two weeks after most sessions, subjects come to Trent's studio to view the pictures and create a custom package of their favorite images to share with family or to win favor with stubborn parking meters.
Apogee Studios has a confidence that was built over 20 years of adjusting apertures and framing snapshots. Within the storefront studio or on location at a favorite park or busy intersection, flashbulbs illuminate high-resolution images of families, children, engaged couples, models, and other subjects in custom photo-shoot packages. A complimentary phone consultation tells muses what to wear and bring, and the fruits of each session arrive on doorsteps in the form of glossy prints or in inboxes as online galleries, which supply retouched shots ready to use in online profiles.
