Professionally operated by licensed California photographer Lindsey Kimball, who specializes in digital editing and light-handed retouching, Left Coast Design Studio offers groups a one-hour, high-quality photo session (up to a $150 value) at the location of their choice with up to four people (a $15 fee applies to each additional person). Photographees can create their own personal photo-session theme and pose for 60 minutes as Lindsey rips reflected light beams out of the air. Families can commemorate a new baby, or newly engaged couples can celebrate the traditional way by setting their photos in the nearest post office. Once the session is complete, choose five high-quality digital images with printing rights (a $75 value) or five 5"x7" prints (a $60 value), with the option to purchase additional prints at 15% off.
Despite living 3,500 miles away, Aleen Diaz was able to see her granddaughter before the baby was even born. This was possible thanks to ultrasound technology, and she still keeps those images with her today. Determined to share this sort of experience with others, Aleen founded Baby's First Photos. The facility's technicians use the most advanced 3D and 4D ultrasound technology available, allowing pregnant women and their families to see fully formed images of the baby, real-time movements and all. These scans become bonding experiences as groups gather in the viewing room, which can accommodate as many as 10 people and features a 100-inch screen with the live images. After the session ends, parents can order high-resolution color photos of their child and proudly share the pictures with friends, coworkers, and the zoo's storks.
Cinematic is a good word to describe C&B Photography's style. They capture the drama in every moment through snapping objects at high and low angles. This technique adds depth and dimension to images and allows the viewer to see the subject in a unique way. A penchant for panorama also adds to the whimsy, allowing natural or architectural scenes to serve as picturesque backdrops. No matter the setting, C&B Photography captures memorable images during portrait sessions for families, models, and couples. C&B Photography also provides engagement and wedding photography.
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.
One Shot Photography's professional knows how to infuse subjects' personalities into shots that might otherwise be mundane in the hands of another photographer. Instead, tots' gap-toothed smiles light up a Father's Day portrait, a gaggle of pugs happily cavort in a family photo, and a mom-to-be's pregnant belly is compared to her partner's taco-induced pudginess. Specializing in outdoor photo shoots, the photographer captures friends and family members beneath the natural light and warmth of the California sun, ensuring that their unique character shines through in the finished product. The staff aims lenses at subjects as diverse as graduating seniors, newly engaged couples, or newborns.
