An ultramodern white loveseat sits framed by a wall decked in vinyl records and a zebra-print rug. There, a figure strikes an edgy pose. Though it might sound like a scene from a music executive's metropolitan loft at the height of the Swinging Sixties, the action plays out far closer to home. At Revolution Studios, the photo enterprise owned and operated by the husband-and-wife duo of Dan and Somer Hadley, glamour is only a costume change away. During their photography shoots, they pair individuals and couples with the scenery and inspiration to bring their inner wild things to life. Dan and Somer encourage their clients to express themselves through personal props and wardrobe choices. In addition to devising personal styles, clients can also consult with on-site hair and makeup experts.

For the next 60 minutes, he coaxes them to stay loose and interact with their surroundings and each other.
Like a memory, Robert Eilers's images exude a distinctive and dreamlike glow. While keeping his subjects—whether a child, family, or model—in focus, he gives each a soft finish, which enhances the picture's texture and depth.

He brings all these ingredients to each session, ensuring every shoot results in pictures primed for framing and preservation.
