Jill Davidson, owner of Emotion Portrait Design, is a PPA Award–winning photographer who strives to create a fun and relaxing atmosphere for guests. A savvy snapper and skilled photo finisher, Jill enjoys getting to know her clients and capturing their personalities in a way that delivers meaningful, time-treasured images. The outdoor family portrait session is an ideal way to capture your entire tribe in one place amongst natural splendors. An accompanying digital image ($375) allows lighting impurities, camera-hogging sparrows, and nature ghosts to be edited out, while allowing you to edit in the middle child you forgot to pick up from soccer camp on your way to the studio. Additional prints cost extra, from $20 for 4"x5" to $528 for 40"x60".
When photographer Aubrey Brower captures an artful image through her lens, she isn't quite satisfied. After snapping a mixture of posed and candid shots, she heads to her computer to subtly brighten colors, correct flaws, and reframe subjects for the most striking, polished final product that could possibly adorn a mantle, online profile, or voodoo shrine. With passion and an eye-for-detail, she hopes to yield vivid engagement prints, family portraits, or boudoir images that have the power to transport viewers back to memorable moments in time.
Melanie Folwell Portrait Design’s eponymous snap-shooter eschews the confines of the studio to capture newborns, children, and families in outdoor environments with natural lightning. Subjects interact with their surroundings during the one-hour photo session, swinging from tree branches or arm-wrestling garden gnomes while Melanie espies opportunities to render memorable moments. After the shoot, Melanie helps models select their favorite poses to transfer onto large 11”x14” prints ideal for framing as heirlooms or passing out to friends with oversized wallets.
