Olan Mills Inc. 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 re-create the 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.
You'll receive 90 minutes in front of a camera that features the behind-the-lens magic of Brittany's stylish eye. Each session includes the photographer's time, basic creative editing of 20–40 images, and a personalized online gallery. Purchased images receive more extensive edits including blemish editing, color toning, and other perfecting post-procedures, which can be discussed in-depth with Brittany. Use your session for headshots, glamour shots, or too-cute shots of a newborn dressed as a puppy cuddling with a puppy dressed as a newborn. This Groupon is also good toward group shots of family, friends, and rugby teammates.
Melissa Butscher freezes the advance of time with photographs capturing children and young adults at dynamic, unstaged moments. During the 30-minute session, Butscher will photograph up to two subjects at either her home studio or at any location within a 30-mile radius of Butscher's North Hills studio. Immortalize twins during breaks from their endless debates over the axiom of infinity, or capture a high-school graduate and his or her imaginary friend before they go off to separate colleges. Butscher's portraits ring of authenticity, with the pure personalities of her subjects always shining through, like the ship-summoning beacons of a billion lighthouses.
Spirited lifestyle photographer Karly Tetlow captures the essence of children, families, and graduates during relaxed, on-location photo shoots. Each camera-centric rendezvous is preceded by a one-on-one chat with Karly regarding the desired atmosphere of the shoot to ensure all parties share the same vision. Cart tots to a lush field for a series of earthy stills, let high-school seniors dream up perfect portraits, or seat kinfolk around the family hearth to immortalize togetherness and mantels decorated with antique macaroni art. Karly's oft-candid pictures swim in whimsy and natural light, leaving flattering impressions in black-and-white as well as technicolor. About two weeks post-session, clients meet with Karly to view the final product, complete with a cache of the best shots retouched to remove unsightly blemishes and obscene gestures from imaginary friends.

Nate Sherer began his video production career in 1983, which means he's witnessed the rise and fall of many formats. Betamax, VHS, and film have been largely discarded from home use, leaving a boneyard in their wake of trapped memories and school plays unable to reach stardom by going viral. Nate recovers these lost images, transferring videos, photos, and slides to DVD and USB formats. This format-flipping experience comes from three decades of experience in professional video production, where Nate and his team have filmed countless weddings, graduations, and nonprofit events.
