As a mother of three, Krista Orr certainly knows the importance of capturing fleeting moments. Krista has been a photographer for nearly a decade, and today, documents those special moments for others with on-location and at-home photo shoots. The Amarillo native also adds an extra dose of entertainment to parties and weddings with customizable photo-booth packages.
The Photo Store's professional photographers immortalize precious moments with family-centric photography sessions tailored for nearly any milestone in life. Maternity and children's portraiture capture the bond between parent and child with sensitive lighting, and customized senior portraits celebrate a young scholar's accomplishments by portraying them in the letterman's jacket of a successful athlete or the ceremonial suit of armor of a Key Club secretary. Subjects snag fleeting memories using backdrops of local cityscapes or parks, or pose at the studio's stunning garden decorated with a 1950s vintage pickup, sunny country porch, waterfall, and re-creation of a Tuscan villa.
Heather Deneke of Bomb City Photography creates modern-retro photographic art, snapping shots to commemorate her clients’ finest moments for posterity. Up to two subjects can pose in a location of their choice throughout Amarillo or Canyon, documenting a new engagement, a mid-pregnancy moment of serenity, or the playful vigor of a child or sentient tree. Pin-up shoots are also available, crafting racy images imbued with an old-fashioned sense of class. After the shoot, the proofs move to their online home in a password-protected gallery, where patrons can choose 25–30 images to have edited and printed. A disc bearing high-resolution versions of all the photos from the shoot lets clients print out enough copies to satisfy eager grandparents or wallpaper an unsuspecting enemy's bedroom.
Babies laughing. High schoolers on the cusp of graduation. Families grouped together. Each picture that the photographer at West Texas Photography captures tells a unique story. Photo shoots result in frame-worthy prints ranging from wallet-size to billboard-size.
Outdoor nuptials on Country Home Weddings's 200-acre farm unfold in front of a tiny white gazebo, shaded by arching tree boughs. The venue recently opened an equally romantic indoor hall, strung with small white lights that cast an ethereal glow over ceremonies. The company's culinary team can complete weddings with catered spreads that range from mini quiches and shrimp on ice to hearty main dishes such as tortellini and brisket.
