Seasoned shutterbug Kevin Fahey utilizes his 38 years of experience and well-trained eye for artistic detail to capture subjects’ uniqueness with pleasing color combos, flattering light manipulation, and backdrops consisting of hyper-enlarged fingerprints. Each family flash session ($90) includes one outfit and one location, with a choice between the modern studio setting and the beautiful surrounding gardens. Fahey works closely with subjects to let individual personalities shine through, immortalizing postmarital bliss and sibling rivalries over who got top bunk and who had to sleep in the garage. After portraits have been snapped and edited, Fahey Photography ensures memory survival with a durable lacquer finishing on the 11”x14” prints, as well as a texture application and art-board mounting.

During public skate sessions at SJCH Ice Center of Bakersfield, a SMG managed facility, staffers give experienced skaters a wide berth, but stay on hand to assist novices with the basics, including lacing up their skates and getting back up after taking a tumble on the ice.

Instruction continues at the skating school, where students of all levels and ages can enhance their skating skills during private lessons or 12-person classes with 12 free public skating sessions and progress reports after their first month. The climate-controlled center—always kept at below 60 degrees—also hosts 14-week youth hockey seasons and three divisions of adult hockey league, which accommodate recreational to top-tier players.

Along with action on the rink, SJCH Ice Center of Bakersfield keeps its pro shop stocked with figure skating and hockey apparel. The in-house technicians can spruce up skates with repair and sharpening services. After hockey games or skating practice, guests can reenergize with pizza, popcorn, and hot chocolate from the Slap Shot snack bar, which entertains visitors with video games such as Super Mario Goes Ice Fishing.
