It's not every photographer who can list National Geographic on their resume, but Don Sparks has that distinction. He worked there as a photographer/editor at the young age of 22, eventually leaving to expand his skill set within various photo studios across D.C.. At Boudoir Photography of Atlanta, Sparks channels two decades of experience into one role: boudoir photographer. But while his style may be singular, his sessions are never stagnant. Each one is tailored to suit varying comfort levels and any food allergies that prevent the saying of "cheese." They feature custom backgrounds—from solid-colored backdrops to a tulle-festooned bed—and lighting that minimizes imperfections. The result is a saucy, powerful image that clients can treasure for years to come.
Father-and-son team Robert and Fred Lee worked as homebuilders for years before going into business selling lights in 1965, so they knew how quickly something impressive could rise from a humble foundation. Sure enough, Lee Lighting, their small family company, grew to include a vast online retail shop and one of the largest lighting dealers in Texas. They've even purchased Savoy, a company that designs fixtures to bring cheer to dining rooms and make rooms full of ventriloquist dummies less terrifying.
Lee Lighting stocks shelves with a diverse selection of indoor lamps from brands including ELK Lighting, Quoizel, and Hudson Valley. Staffers certified by the American Lighting Association move beneath the dazzling crystal sprays and faux candles of chandeliers. They suggest outdoor lighting to transform backyards into regal terraces. They also stay abreast of lighting trends to help patrons select lights that will stay in style.
Part of the ancient discipline of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is gaining more and more acceptance by practitioners of Western medicine. The treatment uses hair-thin needles placed into the skin to help alleviate the symptoms of a variety of health problems, including chronic pain, stress and anxiety, and gastrointestinal disorders.
During a client's first appointment at Northside Acupuncture, licensed acupuncturist Julie Shengaout reviews their medical history and Fantasy Football lineup and performs a physical examination. She also evaluates the client’s current medications, vitamins, and supplements before the acupuncture treatment.
Kathy Antar opened The Sewing Studio planning to provide sewing services for design professionals and event producers, but was soon flooded with phone calls and emails from people who simply wanted to know how to use their sewing machines. To meet that need, The Sewing Studio began to offer a selection of beginner, intermediate, and advanced sewing classes. During each 2.5-hour session, students learn how to thread machines, wind the bobbin, and practice various stitches using their own machines. In addition to classes, Kathy custom-designs furniture upholstery, bedding, and window coverings and supplies expert design-consultation services, which can transform a client's dream design into a tactile reality.
