This week may bring Michael Kors and Bebe, and next week could feature Ann Taylor and Seven, but no matter when someone stops in Eye of the Beholder Consignments, items from high-profile brands can be found on the shelves. Handbags may carry names such as Prada, Coach, and Juicy Couture, and clothing may hail from Talbots, Chico's, and Coldwater Creek. The shop also stocks shoes, business suits, and maternity wear for expectant mothers and dudes who just want to get closer to their children by dressing as a nanny. A portion of proceeds goes to charities such as the Baltimore Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.
The eponymous Ellie Asemani, photographer of Ellie Photo, works with makeup artists and fashion designers to create memorable photo shoots and portraits for her clients. She snaps shots for models, families, or commercial purposes as well as events such as weddings, capturing moments in her studio or at outdoor locations.
The setting and subject may be different, but all of HQT Photography's photos share one common element: a smiling face. The photographer's crisp family photos capture the authentic smiles of kids and parents alike, and snapshots of partygoers encapsulate the glamour of the event. For each shoot, the shutterbug calls upon seven years of experience taking photos and portraits.
Darla Photography founder Darla Cisek's 30 years of experience include past shoots with NBC Sports and Macy's, and a three-year streak of Bride's Choice Awards from WeddingWire. Throughout one-hour shoots in a well-appointed studio or at a picturesque location of choice, a digital camera snaps unlimited portraits in both color and black and white, ensuring that visual puns will read with both humans and dogs. While designed for individuals, couples, and families, larger family groups of up to 10 can squeeze behind the lens as the shutterbug orchestrates a host of editorial and fine-art-style shots. Subjects receive a high-resolution, print-ready DVD of all images resulting from their shoot. Then, the snapshots will take up residence on Pictage.com for six months of private access, leaving ample time to decide between decorating the foyer with a wall of wallets or one refrigerator-size print.
