Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Portrait Innovations operates digital-imaging studios throughout the country that use advanced technology to capture and print family memories in about 60–90 minutes. Before the shoot, adults can browse the open studio space's selection of different poses, props, and backgrounds while children entertain themselves at a Lego table and beg invisible friends to make an appearance for the camera. Photographers use handheld digital cameras to memorialize smiles during the session, utilizing the studio's lighting system to enhance candid images. Patrons then view and select their favorite poses, adding special effects to design and create personalized gifts such as portrait books, calendars, canvases, and mugs. The team prints the high-resolution portraits on archival-quality paper with a high-capacity Fujifilm Digital Frontier system, and ships specialty gift items to clients' homes for free.
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.
The thrill of a wedding day is a whirlwind of memories?sometimes too many to remember down the line. Neon Spoons Photography keeps those memories intact, capturing everything from the bride sitting for a makeup application to the ?I do?s? to the cutting of the wedding cake with a machete. The shutterbugs also gather families for a photo shoot in the studio or at a location of the clients? choice.
Kimberly Lisowski, the shutterbug behind Photography by Kimberly, doesn't believe in stiff poses or forced smiles. Instead, she works to highlight the personality and unique beauty of each subject during spontaneous, street-style photo shoots. She snaps senior portraits that are both edgy and timeless, using natural scenery as a backdrop.
