Movement is medicine for Sunyatta Amen, proprietor and head instructor at MamaSita Movement & Wellness Studio. She expresses this philosophy through an eclectic menu of group classes such as Urban Fusion Belly Dance, Zumba, and Brazilian Samba Workout.

Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
Even after dropping their dogs off at LIttle Rascals, owners are never truly separated from their pups—they can always check in on them through a live webcam feed. That's just one of the amenities that elevate the grooming, boarding, and day care center to feeling more like a dog resort. While at the facility, dogs play with a range of toys that include balls, tug-of-war ropes, and Frisbees. Pups who stay overnight snooze in a choice of quarters that range from a simple crate to a cageless suite complete with a child-size human bed.
When it comes to keeping pets looking good, the grooming technicians at Little Rascals transform dog fur into chic, clean coats with their washes and deshedding services. A slew of training classes also teach pups fundamental skills for living in the human world, such as how to fetch a newspaper without swallowing a single bite of it. Even cats have a place here, with grooming services created just for them.
As a child, Rocky Thorpe would go on adventures on his own that would often lead him to museums where he’d spend the day photographing exhibits. As he grew up, he discovered that this habit of documenting his own life and capturing the world’s beauty around him was not just a hobby, but a passion. Today, with Eclectic Fotos, he makes photography his life, shooting everything from weddings and modeling sessions to portraits of families, children, and moms-to-be. Boudoir sessions and private events, such as birthday parties and corporate functions, are also within his scope of skills. To enhance photo packages, he offers such extras as hand-bound albums as well as DVD slide shows.
