Joe May Valet began dry-cleaning and laundering fabrics way back in 1936, when the Great Depression forced people to give up their glamorous nudity in favor of clothing. At four locations around Atlanta, trained staffers use their hands and eyes inspect garments, removing stains and driving dirt from the fabric’s furthest nooks and crannies. Customers with spare hangers can drop them off, and the staff will recycle them or donate them to charity.
The first year of life holds so many milestones: the first step, the first Christmas, the first time baby realizes “coo” is the word for everything. As the parents of three young children, photography team James (a self-taught photographer) and Michelle Hill (a model and actress) understand that well. That’s why the Hills offer their Bebe Collection photography packages, which document Baby’s first year with photo shoots at three to four months, at eight months, and at one year. Each shoot captures a different aspect of infancy, from the debut of teensy feet and toes to the discovery of crawling.
The Bebe Collection exemplifies what James and Michelle do best: capture newborns, children, and maternity in evocative and personal photo shoots. For family portraits, James stays behind the camera and Michelle is in charge of styling as shoots unfold at the studio, at the client’s home, or at a location of the client’s choice, be it a local park or a place that is special to the family.
