Barquin Photography, formerly Lil' People Portrait Gallery, is a studio steered by husband-wife team Carlos and Eli Barquin. As parents themselves, they know how important it is to get portraits of kids before they grow up and become surly tax accountants, so they offer clients a special Le Bebe collection. This captures pictures of kids at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months.
Carlos, the former chief photographer for Telemundo's morning show from 2000 to 2009, snaps images of the kids, and Eli, a former first-grade school teacher, wrangles them together and keeps them smiling.
Carlos and Eli work alongside Armando Pico, who shoots the studio's senior portraits and is a wedding photographer, as well as Javier Uria and Gino Reyes, the sports and school shutterbugs. Then there's Sandra Gutierrez-Uria, who retouches photos and erases immature hand gestures made by imaginary friends. Clients get to review these photos on the lobby's flat-screen TV.
Jady's high-quality images bridge the gap between an original portrait painted by a Renaissance master and a plain old picture. The team of talented photographers aims to establish a personal connection with subjects in order to provide an enjoyable experience and images that capture your exact spirit without stealing your soul from your body. The boutique company works with a smaller number of clients, working to tell a story through the optic magic of lenses and mirrors.
Maria-Ines Clarke, the owner of Boudoir by Marie, lavishes her clients with a detail-oriented service that frequently starts with glasses of champagne and hair and makeup styling. After subjects pick flattering threads from the corset rack, Clarke coaches them in seductive poses and facial expressions such as pouty lips or come-hither bunny ears. Her photo packages offer a range of shoot options from one to two hours, which ultimately yield printed booklets or online galleries of approximately 80 images.
JC Productions employs a team of video, audio, and event-planning experts who create media ranging from wedding photos to web designs to commercials. Professional photographers commemorate engagements or capture weddings and web designers stylize web pages. Graphic designers working in tandem with scriptwriters can pen flyers or develop the right tone to advertise a brand for a service or product.
For close to two decades, photographer Carlos Osorio has been preserving family memories at Miami Photo. He has documented more than 400 weddings, and his laid-back, journalistic style has been published in numerous media. Assisted by his wife Sandra, Osorio earned one of WeddingWire.com's Bride's Choice awards in 2009, 2010, and 2011. He turns brides' special days into prints at his own professional lab and converts images into products such as coffee-table albums, canvas prints, or high-resolution vinyl siding. Osorio also captures family portraits, parties, and quinceaňeras, and restores precious photos damaged by the passage of time.
