At Life and Legacy Media, photographers document family moments or take expressive headshots during professional photo shoots. Founded by Thomas Rankins Jr. and Brandy "BrandyWine" Rankins, a multitalented couple that juggles music, speaking, and advocacy careers, the studio also provides videography and graphic-design services.
While crafting 3-D computer models as an architect, Genesis Inman realized that she enjoyed the artistic aspect of her career far more than the basics of construction. She began to delve into this love of creating beauty during her maternity leave, experimenting with photography and eventually turning that side interest into a full-time endeavor. These days, Inman searches deep within her camera for inspiring images of nature, heartwarming pictures of families, and personal yet professional portraits for businesses. She specializes in fashioning themed compositions for children, snatching up youth's precious, fleeting moments before they're marred by facial hair.
A soft focus surrounds the subjects in Love Photography's images, lending warmness to a close-up of a bride wearing her veil and dreaminess to a sultry couple posing together in a boudoir session. During these shoots, Love Photography’s team of photographers makes subjects feel at ease by scheduling complimentary consultations before the shutter even starts snapping. Like William Tell shooting an apple off his son’s head, the staff believes that practice makes perfect, and they’ve been practicing their photographic aim during weddings, family portrait sessions, and kids’ photo shoots since the studio opened in 1970.
People are so concerned with showing their love on Valentine's Day that they often forget to capture it instead. Photography is a proven method for freezing time and securing momentous memories on rectangular sheets of gloss.

Commemorate the visible love you share with another, your family, and your infant cousin's newly sprouted third row of teeth, or record a new set of headshots to replace the ones you glued inside all the magazines in your local bookshop.
Designs of Distinction augments the memories of celebratory gatherings with a large array of rentable activities, furniture, decorations, and more. Themed birthday bashes gain a main event with inflatable bounce houses ($275) shaped and adorned in a variety of decorations such as jungle animals, spaceships, and castles. Designs of Distinction will deliver, set up, and subsequently take down and take away the chosen bounce house rentals. Hosts of functions that prohibit jumping can peruse Designs of Distinction's inventory, decking party halls with eight-foot Oscar statues or white leather couches ($275). The Groupon can be applied to more expensive items—such as a rideable mechanical bull ($995)—to ensure quality carousing.
Brian Bowers, a former talent agent, founded Braedy Photography in 2007. Having spent more than 20 years in the entertainment industry, he was familiar with the plight of struggling actors and models. Bowers founded the studio to give hopeful talent an affordable way to obtain pictures of their head. Professional headshots are necessary for the careers of actors and models, and can further the professional journey of many performers, including clowns, dancers, comedians, and animorphs. Bowers specializes in headshots, as well as portrait photography for matriculating youth, gesticulating families, and hiccupping children. With today's deal, customers of all life paths are treated like models, receiving touch-ups and lint-downs from a professional stylist and three outfit changes during their session. Choose to have pictures taken either in the studio itself, with its hardwood floors and numerous backdrops, or in one of the scenic locations around the building. Afterward, Bowers will go through the assembled images and select the best of each of your outfits for three 8x10 prints ($25 value each).
