Studio One to One's photographers posture subjects in casual, comfortable positions against understated backgrounds before capturing photos. Families can cuddle each other, aspiring models can smile with their eyes in glamour shots, and expectant mothers can flaunt ever-growing tummies and chocolate-covered pickles. After shutterbugs snap shots, patrons can immediately view video proofs, and video slideshows of the session's shots come complimentary with every appointment. Color pics of the day's strongest shot are printed in four different sizes, from images that slide snugly into wallets to 11"x14" photos perfect for living rooms or neighbors' bedrooms. Sessions should be booked by phone or online at least 24 hours in advanced.

Professional photographer Constance Avellino is proud to call photography both her passion and her profession. Through her work, she helps families, couples, proud graduates, and squirmy newborns tell their story with stunning, personal pictures. Clients meet with her at the studio or a local park to capture family portraits, montages of a soon-to-be mothers, or depictions of high school seniors just before they run away with the circus. Soft contrast and a rich saturation of color form a common thread throughout many of Avellino's pictures, imparting a dreamy, otherworldly quality to her images. After sitting for a portrait session and consulting with Avellino, subjects access their fully-edited pictures in a password-protected online gallery.
Quality photos capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings much more efficiently then papier-mâché sculptures. At studiolano, photographer April Catalano utilizes her many years of experience to photograph subjects with a microscopic attention to detail. During a one-hour session at studiolano’s fully equipped studio, April will rattle off 50–75 shots of multiple poses with the speed and precision of a camera-fitted, laser-guided cheetah. Striking images are artfully captured with an uncommon eye to provide game-changing glimpses of the subject’s pleasant disposition that can’t be replicated with an emoticon-riddled letter of recommendation. After the photo shoot, customers place their package order from the comfort of their plush, indoor hammocks with online proof viewing and ordering.

Whether wielding a high-powered DSLR or craftily snapping shots with a smartphone, the student-tourists of InFocus Tampa Photo Tours learn how to make the most of their cameras while visiting iconic locales around the city. Groups trek across Tampa on foot, listening to guides share historical facts about sites including the Tampa Theatre, Plant Hall, and the Riverwalk. Along the way, the guide-instructor will touch on such shot-snapping topics as depth of field and the Rules of Thirds, which states that the subject of a picture should be evenly chopped into three pieces for maximum effect. Students can try out their new knowledge as they walk; eye-catching architecture, public artwork, and verdant greenery becomes the subject and backdrop of memorable photos.
Each of Angela Clifton Photography's sessions begins with a phone consultation, during which photographer and customer work together to plan photo shoots that focus on everything from babies to entire families and pets. Forgoing the confines of a studio, staff shutterbugs travel to locations that best capture each subject's personality. They may photograph couples posing at sunset along a beach, or a newborn first learning to photosynthesize beneath the natural light of the sun. After sessions, the crew retouches images and uploads photographs to an online gallery for customers to peruse.
