The professional photographers at Solaris Photography know that it takes practice to keep their aesthetic senses and photo-snapping muscles in shape. That's why the staff regularly attends and assists with photography workshops and maintains their membership in the Professional Photographers of America and International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers. They further perfect their skills while staging in-studio portraits and hitting the road to chronicle weddings and special events. In addition to traditional prints, the studio also creates digital files that can be uploaded to social-media sites or PhotoShopped into daguerreotypes.
Clic A Pic's booths help to liven up and whimsically document bridal showers, holiday parties, and corporate events. Each stand-up booth fits several guests comfortably in its 3’x5.5’x6.5’ dimensions, where guests use a touchscreen to notify the device when they’re ready. Within 12 seconds, the dye-sub printer churns out images in color, black and white, or sepia on a customizable photo strip.
Shelly Ivy's parents probably figured they were indulging a passing phase when they bought their 8-year-old daughter a blue camera with a flash bulb. As it turns out, that gift steered Shelly toward a career in photography that fully manifested when she opened Ivy Studios Photography with her husband Brandon. The duo specializes in wedding and portrait photography, and their work regularly graces Wedding Wire's Bride's Choice awards. Sharing a fondness for rock 'n' roll, they bring an enthusiastic energy to their clients' photo shoots, which commemorate occasions ranging from happy nuptials and momentous graduations to the fire walk that closes out every family reunion. When they're not focusing lenses on brides or setting up surveillance on ring bearers, the pair stages introductory and advanced photography classes that help students fluently maneuver around their digital cameras.

Smith is sure to set aside enough time to ensure enough time for babies to forget their work-related stress and relax into placid, picture-taking moods.
Many photographers can snap portraits of children, but the photographers at Leasures Designer Portraits snap portraits of fairies.

The studio’s creative portrait shoots can also capture kids posing with live bunnies. The team’s eclectic array of specialties allows for more than childhood photography; the professional shutterbugs also immortalize high-school seniors holding aloft their favorite instruments or the expanding stomachs of moms-to-be.
