Photographer Alix Broadway, hair stylist Naomi Maisey, and makeup artist Shea Ellison have been friends and collaborators on creative projects for years. But it took a client's remarks about the group?s natural chemistry to inspire the women to merge their collective talents into a permanent partnership. Along the way, they filled out their team with the addition of hair stylist and makeup artist Bernice Welacky and post-production assistant Kelley Matley, and today, the Miss Behave Boudoir Photography workday sees the group bouncing ideas off one another as they strive to create unique, sexy shoots that highlight their clients' sultriest sides.

The Miss Behave Team describes their boudoir shoots as both fun and empowering, noting, "It?s like playing dress up with your girlfriends, but way sexier and much more mature.? Their 1,500-square-foot studio boasts a hair-and-makeup room, a lounge area, and interchangeable backgrounds that range from sensuous purple damask walls with velvet curtains to a risqu? still frame from March of the Penguins. When not striking a spicy pose on the studio's vintage pink couch or fur rug, clients can unwind in an on-site kitchenette, which they are encouraged to stock with their favourite refreshments.

Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.

At espy, fashion savant Megan Szanik and her elite style squad orchestrate custom fittings of designer jeans, a method earning the boutique nods from outlets such as the Calgary Herald. The 3,000-square-foot retail space houses more than 150 handpicked denim styles that flatter male and female silhouettes with a wide range of sizes and inseams. Before customers leap into jeans, fashion stylists determine leg and hip dimensions to gauge an ideal fit. Wearers can further complement bottoms with the help of tops by dozens of high-end designers that attract stares from even the most stoic mannequins.

Additionally, the team can beautify clients' faces with makeup and skincare products at the beauty counter. Espy's own line of mineral make-up showers skin with vitamin-rich nutrients, igniting cheeks, eyes, and lips with healthy glows. Its Dermo-Corrective line of skincare products also heals and improves skin, thanks to its bio-tech abilities that condition and fight signs of aging with every nourishing encounter.

Bon Appetit Catering & Cafe's talented chefs fill breakfast, lunch, and catering menus with cuisine that explores Europe’s culinary traditions. Fresh, natural ingredients star in sandwiches, pizzas, seafood, and other tasty selections at a spacious sit-down café, where baristas pull espresso shots and steep aromatic tea leaves. Entrees such as gourmet pizza sand house-made lasagna highlight Italian influences with tangy tomato sauce, and the breaded cutlets of the hunter schnitzel add German flavour to the table without dressing the salt shaker in lederhosen. The culinary team channels more than 25 years of catering experience to build meals for weddings, corporate events, and the Calgary Stampede, handling details such as dining times and seating arrangements with patience and grace. Filled with dishes such as chicken souvlaki and beef stroganoff, the catering menu draws inspiration from traditional Mediterranean kitchens and the flavourful onion domes of downtown Moscow.

The photographers at Life Photo Studios excel in the fine art of lifestyle photography, encouraging subjects to be comfortable before the camera during lighthearted photo shoots at their spacious facility in the Beacon Hill Shopping Centre. Family milestones get the weight they deserve with special photographic packages. Life Experience sessions give families the time and space to be themselves, often laughing, dancing, or performing traditional family gymnastics routines for the camera to create professionally edited portraits that stretch to whatever size the subjects' walls will allow. The Lullaby Club, a package of serial shoots, allows parents to document each stage of their new baby's development from maternity shoots to toddler shots in four sessions that each produce one 8"x8" portrait from the bounty of images snapped. Life Photo Studios supports local charities by offering photo sessions at a reduced fundraising rate and by regularly participating in rallies to promote lens-cap awareness.
