The professional photographers at Target Portrait Studios capture paramount moments in premier lighting with high-tech digital cameras and a choice of vivid background images.

Clients are welcome to bring props and shadow puppets from home, and after choosing a background, they can further customize each image with one of the studio's props, if desired.

Using ingredients that are certified Kosher and organic, Green Apple Foods NY creates gourmet variants of classic fairground treats. Staff members pop kettle corn and popcorn fresh daily, in flavors such as jalapeño sea salt or cinnamon toast.
