Mike Moreland's portfolio bursts apart at the seams with the work of more than 15 years in architecture, fashion, and advertising photography. The award-winning photographer's three-hour workshops, typically lead by two–four expert shutterbugs, teach neophytes and hobbyists the tricks and tools to snap professional-grade shots. After 45 minutes of instruction, students spend just over two hours honing their burgeoning skills, capturing images on their own DSLRs or with a chisel and stone tablet. Guests walk out of the sessions knowing how to manipulate light sensors, how to adjust shutter speeds with a special emphasis on nature photography, and the basics of studio lighting, wedding portraiture, and shooting in urban settings.

Professional photographer Dana Dawes specializes in capturing life's most cozy moments, and her experience shooting families, babies, pregnant mothers-to-be, and nervous downstairs neighbors of mothers-to-be has left her with a keen ability to reflect, through pictures, the individual personality of each person or family. Your Groupon is good for an hour-long photo shoot; you can choose to come to her well-lit studio for a more formal, 19th-century tin-type pose or summon her to the grounds of your manor or favored scenic vista for a more casual session in a natural setting (up to a one-hour driving distance from downtown Atlanta). Bring the family for a series of candids, opt for a single reel of your newborn son, or capture your little sis on film before she goes away to college. You'll be left with a DVD of all the shoot's images, an 8”x10” of your chosen photo, and 20% off all additional studio-printed images.
A camera has always been a part of Courtney's life. That’s due in part because she comes from a family of photographers, of which she’s the third generation to practice the art. She started Ethereal Birth Photography to transform what had long been her photographic hobby and passion into a career. Armed with the knowledge of her forebears and her own studies, she went ahead with her dream and in the process discovered her talent for shooting nature and newborns.
Throughout her photographic repertoire, Courtney is known for exploring many styles and producing unique shots. Clients may see her employing traditional portraiture techniques for work with babies, a photojournalistic bent with families or weddings, and a generally fun and funky style with anything from nature to boudoir shoots.
