Experienced snapshooter Sara Sun captures vivid portraits of babies, children, and families pleasantly emoting in retina-regaling landscapes.

Nothing beats the view from the skies, so it makes sense that a picture from hundreds of feet in the air can provide a new, beautiful perspective. At Cape Cod Aerial Photography, professional photographers use a Cessna 172 or a helicopter to climb to these scenic heights, taking shots with digital equipment. Click here to see some of the company’s shots, ranging from a broad shot of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy to a bird’s-eye view of the Zakim Bridge.
The company specializes in photography of Cape Cod (most shots take place within 50 miles of Plymouth Airport), but they’ve flown to numerous spots in New England, as far as Vermont and Connecticut. These kinds of photos can help proprietors advertise businesses or assist homeowners in visualizing how to arrange their living space when they move all their furniture to the roof.

When Jamie Hayhurst does a photo shoot, she strives to snap fun, candid, and original shots before burning each image onto a CD and presenting it to her clients. To give her subjects as many options as possible, she only deletes photos with accidental blinks, bad lighting, and intrusive sasquatches. The shutterbug does most of her memory-catching outdoors or in her clients' homes, where she snaps portraits of seniors, moms-to-be, families, ceremonies, and kids. Her portfolio often features spontaneous smiles backdropped by scenic lakes, fields, and babbling brooks with bright-green grass or fall colors, depending on the time of year. Dutch tilts add dynamic compositions to her shots, which she renders in black and white, color, or warm sepia tones.
During shoots at Portrait Simple—a studio specialized in child, infant, maternity, and family portraits—skilled photographers snap an unlimited number of poses in front of a choice of backgrounds and provide the convenience of instant printing. Sessions can take any size group, accommodating families and close-knit juries. Models don simple duds without heavy patterns or logos and can tote props such as sports equipment or special blankies. After striking jubilant, winsome, or wrathful poses, guests sit down with the photographer to select images to turn into prints.
