Mileena began sowing the seeds of psychic mastery before the age of 5, when her mother and grandmother introduced her to the practice of reading and interpreting tarot cards. The fortune teller has since performed countless readings around the world, from the French Quarter in New Orleans to the cobblestone streets of Italy, and opened her own psychic reading rooms, where she continues to help visitors demystify the past, present, and future. Through a diverse selection of readings, meditation, and visualizations, Mileena confers with clients about her inclinations on their spiritual, romantic, and business pursuits. The clairvoyant also performs relaxing therapies, such as chakra balancing and reiki, to calm minds troubled by the consequences of broken mirrors and wearing white after Labor Day.
Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.

Class sizes are limited to about 20 students to ensure each student gets ample attention and personalized technique tips.
