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.

Inside Picture Perfect Announcements’ enclosed and open-air photo booths, partygoers strike poses that are instantly preserved on photo strips or 4”x6” photos. Guests have the option to print still images in full color or black and white, and event hosts can further personalize sessions by adding a custom logo or furnishing guests with a provided box of props. To ensure mantel-worthy shots and stress-free parties, Picture Perfect Announcements deploys attendants to set up the photo booths, tactfully indicate when guests have parsley in their teeth, and tote away booths at the end of celebrations.
Picture Perfect Announcements’ mission to commemorate special events extends beyond the camera lens: the company also furnishes high-school graduates with class jewelry, keepsakes, and announcement packages.

No matter how long customers rent a digital-technology-equipped vintage booth from The Classic Photo Booth, they all receive the same wealth of services. Each spacious booth's camera snaps a series of color and black-and-white shots, which emerge from printers within 10–15 seconds. Prints can be assembled into a complementary scrapbook for each event's host, and a digital version of every image is burned onto an include CD. Rentals can also add customized logos printed onto every photo and, for an additional fee, a box of props such as wigs and mustaches. Booths are promptly delivered, set up, and disassembled by an onsite attendant, who mans the booth while decked out in tuxedo-style dress so a tech-savvy penguin can take their place in case of an emergency.
