Flying Turtle Photography captures indelible images of kids and families during intimate snapfests. Photographer Melissa Gilbert brings a nuanced touch to maternity and newborn sessions, snatching honest expressions from tykes and proud parents. Flying Turtle’s 2,000-square-foot boutique studio illuminates compositions with both industry and natural light as Melissa puts her subjects at ease in front of a multitude of backgrounds. Alternatively, scenic outdoor spots set a natural backdrop for wedding photos, baby portraits, and Arbor Day publicity fliers, all of which can be printed by the studio.
Lacy Hammack made her first forays into boudoir photography while living with her Marine Corps husband in the midst of the Mojave Desert. While she was first armed only with the skills of a yearbook photographer, she taught herself the ins and outs of professional studio lighting and photo editing, moving away from what she calls her "Photoshopographer" days to perfect a lighter touch that softly airbrushes imperfections while highlighting natural beauty. Lacy's extensive experimentation with lighting and posing has blossomed into a well-honed pin-up style that she and her all-female staff practice at AdoraLee Boudior Studio's two locations.
After passing through AdoraLee's storefront lingerie store (at the Norman location only), clients are treated to extensive coaching on how to get the most from their boudoir shoot. Pre-session pointers help women choose their ensembles; during the session, music and chatter sets the air at ease while photogs guide their subjects into every pose, snapping alluring eye-level shots in the makeup room or sensual high angle shots over the studio's fluffy bed. Four additional set options?including red damask or black velvet backdrops?inspire photographers as they expertly blend studio lighting with a wide variety of poses to flatter any body type. Through high-contrast color shots and classic black-and-white prints, AdoraLee photographers strive to make every woman?whether curvy, pregnant, postpartum, or mid-werewolf transformation?into a sensual siren.
You might say JC has superpowers. He's able to turn into a shadow at someone?s wedding, snapping away without notice as newlyweds cut the cake and hit the dance-floor. During high-school graduations and family reunions, his eyes become those of an eagle as he arranges loved ones in a fashion that's both communal and visually pleasing. And when not photographing people, JC clicks away at extreme weather, from storms to tornados of Mountain Dew.

Well-versed in imaginative and stylized photographic techniques, the staff at Montag Photography will wisen up any novice shutterbug with an in-depth tutorial. Students should bring their single-lens reflex (SLR) camera to the three-hour lesson, which will delve into the four valuable pillars of photography: lighting, SLR basics, Matthew McConaughey's abs, and framing. After teaching the use of reflectors and white balance, the pros at Montag Photography will tutor kodachrome neophytes in the basic SLR methods, such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO adjustment. Finally, pupils will get the hang of professional framing by taking notes on the rule of thirds, cropping approaches, shooting for print ratios, and eliminating shady Sesame Street characters in the backgrounds of photos. At the end of class, students will have time to query the house photographers for any artistic and technical advice that will enhance their enjoyment of the aesthetically fulfilling hobby.
The skillful shutterbugs at Studio Keepsake take pride in capturing a variety of memories for posterity; they'll thoughtfully photograph graduating seniors, families, babies, people carrying babies in their bellies, people carrying babies in their tote bags, and more. During your hourlong portrait session, one of the studio's professional picture-takers will coax a natural-looking smile from your lips as easily as you can say "easy-cheese." Snuggle up with your best friend forever to commemorate your camaraderie, or give the gift of a 1,000-word vocabulary to your newborn gurgling baby. Though there is no hard limit for the number of people in the photo session, Studio Keepsake would like you to bring immediate family only.
