Snapping memorable portraits of families, couples, and graduating seniors, Rusty Healey Photography specializes in capturing life’s most huggable moments amid an amenity-rich sanctuary of reflection. After conferring with the photographer to design a customized session, customers can pose for stunning shots in a studio equipped with a bevy of backdrops, a motorcycle, and meadow of blooming puppies. Wrapped in richly hued brick walls and wrought-iron doors, Rusty's warm studio allows subjects to relax and unwind while a makeup artist finely preens faces before each shoot. During the session, clients can change outfits two or three times as well as precisely rearranging features like a fetching Mr. Potato Head. More than 100 photographs are taken during the shoot, allowing clients to peruse more than 40 first-class shots before selecting one to have digitally airbrushed, printed in an 8”x10” size, and shown repeatedly to the family dog so it knows who the boss is.

First, there are drinks. Many of the classes at Liquid Canvas begin with education about a beverage?whether it's wine or something nonalcoholic?that participants sip before diving into the creative process. Each painting session focuses on a different composition, including flowers, whimsical trees, and unsteady wineglasses. Experienced artists take the lead, sharing tips with students as they tend to their canvases and explaining such painterly concepts as the rule of thirds and why ponytails don't make good brushes. Set to upbeat music, the classes are meant to be relaxed and social, and each participant gets to take their completed masterpiece home.
