Experienced snapshooter Sara Sun captures vivid portraits of babies, children, and families pleasantly emoting in retina-regaling landscapes. Mount a pillow fight, blow bubbles, or gleefully reenact moments of passive-aggressive dish passing in a 60-minute photo shoot devoid of affected grins and stiff poses. Afterwards, Sara bedecks the virtual walls of an online database with your personal proof gallery. Subjects peruse and choose their favorite to have made into an 11”x14” print, ideal for filling wall frames or shellacking onto television sets for feigned notoriety. Pictures come complete with basic post-shoot retouching (extensive retouching may incur an extra fee) and are posted online for five days.
Professional photographer Lara Callahan, whose portfolio includes work for Puma and Red Bull and celebrity photos of Donnie Wahlberg and Mario Lopez, immortalizes memorable moments with her shutterbugging abilities. During the one-hour photo session (a $500 value), Callahan snaps shots of up to six friends, family members, or overcrowded barbershop quartets in the comfort of her studio or on location at the Cambridge Center Roof Garden, scenic Castle Island or the Boston Commons. The crackerjack lenswoman turns her apertured eye on infants and children, capturing the innocence of youth and the evidence of cookie-burglary rings. Couples can create amorous mementos with engagement pictures or tasteful boudoir photos.

When Artur Andronic took his first picture with a friend's camera, he fell in love with photography. His next step was to save up for a Rebel XS, which helped him hone his skills before he graduated to a Canon 7D. Though Artur studied business administration for five years and earned an MBA in international business, photography is his passion; it cultivates his creative side and enables him to share the beauty he sees with others.
Whenever Artur snaps a portrait, he strives to capture candid expressions illuminated by natural light. He also photographs wild animals as they frolic through nature and maintains both clarity and detail by using a fast shutter speed, heavy saturation, and taxidermy. In addition to clicking pics for clients, he takes avant-garde photos and documents his travels to exotic locations.
Six years ago Monica Day began photographing families with a camera she purchased at a pawnshop. Since then, she's built an aesthetic around using natural light to capture candid shots of infants curled up in milk buckets, couples sharing a smile, and seniors posing at a skate park. When she's not snapping on-location shots, she specializes in in-studio glam and boudoir shoots, whose sultry results she preserves with prints, digital images, and books. Through Skype sessions, in-person consultations, or instructional videos, Monica also mentors budding photographers, helping them out with compositional tips, such as using a crane to turn frowning people upside down.
