Owner and principal photographer Amy Zellmer approaches every shoot from two angles. With a modern style of traditional photography, each shot is composed and framed to fit alongside family portraits from any decade. But with the addition of her photojournalistic skills, her photos also tell the story of her subjects, capturing their emotions in a single, telling moment. The all-female staff at her studio shares this dual focus to shoot families, weddings, and private boudoir sessions.
Amy requires an engagement session before the wedding day with every couple she works with so that she can develop a relationship with the soon-to-be-weds and find the photography style to match their personality. She incorporates this same communicative approach in basic portrait sessions, often taking pictures in black and white to emphasize emotions or the stark contrast of an oreo. Amy coaches natural poses from her subjects during boudoir sessions that build confidence and reinforce her belief that women of all shapes and sizes are beautiful.
Oozing with passion and more than 10 years of experience in professional shutterbugging, Meghan Doll's sharp eye for detail and sidekick lens work in tandem to smoothly capture the precious moments of families and their prized hedgehogs. Those preferring a slightly more controlled environment can head to her spacious studio for an indoor session (a $175 value), where Doll will use artificial lighting and smile traps to lull striking poses from prolonged hibernation. Her patient and natural approach also translates finely to outdoor sessions (a $200 value), where she ably captures the raw energy of kids in their natural habitats—on the grass, in a sandbox, or upon a gleaming lily pad. Post-session, clients will be presented with one sprayed and mounted 8’’x10’’ master print photo (a $75 value), poised for adorning mantles or future screen-printed sweaters. Additional prints will be available for purchase.

Sugar and Spice owners Chelsey and Angela haven't forgotten the fear that consumed them when they first bared all in front of a foggy camera lens. This awareness is what makes them the ideal pair to helm a boudoir photography studio, which pairs its solo shoots with sessions incorporating couples, pinups, and pregnant subjects. By drawing from their past experience, all-female staff members work to ease subjects' fears as they highlight their best features, no matter what size, shape, or kind of droid they might be. Since the studio doesn't dabble in wedding shoots or children's photography, Sugar and Spice is able to pour all of its resources into its boudoir photography, which is reflected by its 20 different sets, more than 200 pairs of thigh-highs and stockings, and hundreds of outfits in sizes 0–22.
If clients start to get lost in piles of lingerie, the team has plenty of ideas and ready-made looks to choose from, such as the girl next door in jeans and a T-shirt or the more involved bikini-clad George Washington crossing the Delaware. Touting itself as the only stateside boudoir studio to offer complimentary clip-in hair extensions, Sugar and Spice also flaunts its beauty retouching services, which are included with every session.
As Jessica Gilliland grew up, her mother was always behind the camera, snapping shots of everything from family gatherings to sporting events. At Shoe Button Photography, Jessica channels her mother’s passion during portrait sessions with kids and families. Though happy to accommodate guests at her studio, she prefers to capture images at a location where clients feel most comfortable, such as home or a favorite park. After gathering all the pictures from each session, Jessica asks clients to select their favorites to adorn a selection of products, including framed prints, ceramic mugs, and mouse pads.
With more than 25 years of experience in Europe and the United States, former fashion photographer Gregory Gittsovich has spent the last quarter century making his subjects look their best. Things are no different at Accent Photography, where he photographs seniors with their favorite instruments or athletic gear, babies with fun props such as balloons, or pet dogs with the only mailmen they've ever liked. During both in-studio and on-location sessions, Gregory never forces his patrons into uncomfortable positions; rather, he lets them strike their preferred poses and only makes suggestions if necessary. Afterward, he retouches each client's favorite images to ensure that prints or digital images feature smooth complexions and rich color.
Along with his smaller-scale shoots, Gregory and the Accent Photography team cover bar and bat mitzvahs, where they snap unlimited photographs at unlimited locations for families to choose from. He offers similarly extensive coverage at weddings, which he captures with a custom blend of traditional portraiture, photojournalistic technique, and candid images.
