Member of the American Society of Photographers, Tracy Van Zeeland draws upon 16 years' worth of camera-wielding wisdom to capture classic snapshots in a fun and casual atmosphere. The photog passes the one-hour session patiently clicking away as children relax and play, producing prints that ensnare the saplings' innate sweetness while sidestepping temper tantrums prompted by puppets speaking ill of that big shot Big Bird. Customers can choose one outfit and one backdrop, so suit up a squirt in their Sunday best and settle them on a white wicker chair, or maroon babes dressed as cubs on a desert island in their sea faring finery. Directly after the film frenzy, pintsize patrons and their parents peruse a deluge of digital prints on a big-screen TV to select the snapshot for their color 8"x10" print, ready in two weeks. Multitudinous clans can have up to three snapshot subjects, with an additional $5 per each child. Tracy also conquers newborn and family portraits, senior pictures, and more.
Katie Ball of Studio 609 Photography believes that if a picture is worth 1,000 words, a person’s portrait should be priceless. Armed with an artistic eye and a true passion for photography, Katie helps her subjects commemorate the special people, places, and events in their lives with a variety of photography packages. She specializes in wedding photography, individual portraits, and photography for babies and children.
Fox River Fitness Boot Camp’s instructors Joel Zeiner and Alicia Doerr—endowed with NETA and NSCA personal trainer certifications, respectively—specialize in reintroducing physical activity to those who have long done without. On orientation day for new students, they'll record a confidential health history, take measurements, and set goals designed to aid students in tracking their progress. They equip each attendee with all the accessories and gear needed for each class, meaning that trainees need only bring comfortable clothes in which to move and sweat.
Inspire Fitness Studio—the fitness center used for the boot camp—boasts ultra-modern yet unintimidating confines that aim to appeal to the peepers while comforting new clients. Exposed golden-brick walls warm up the ceiling’s network of industrial piping, while floor-to-ceiling windows reveal picturesque views of the river and synchronized parasailors.
