Seasoned shutterbug Daniel Troutman transfers personalities to film during laid-back portrait photography sessions. Summon Troutman to a one- to two-hour sitting at any locale within 20 miles of Jefferson, or decamp to the photographer’s 100-year-old converted-meat-locker studio, where the wooden walls and floor bathe mugs in warm, soft light. Subjects stay solo or share the frame with families and friends, and unlimited clothing changes allow for multiple looks or the reenactment of multiple scenes from A Fish Called Wanda. Postsession, subjects peruse the photos, selecting a winning shot for transmission to an 18”x12” print.

The photographer behind the lens at Encore! Portrait Design does more than capture his subjects’ best angles. He also captures the bonds that his subjects share with one another, such as parents and their children, grandparents and their grandchildren, or siblings. He also snaps away as dogs and their owners pal around, and freezes four moments in the early life of a baby so parents can look back on the growth of their wee one from sleeping soundlessly at infancy to whittling their first bottle at one years old.
Years after a wedding or a high-school graduation, photographs invoke cherished memories of these moments in time. According to its mission statement on Brides magazine's website, Stalnakers Photo Studio’s photographers “want you to be able to relive those moments and emotions as if it were your wedding day all over again.” Along with a duo of professional photographers, Kris Stalnaker, the studio’s owner and lead photographer, captures precious moments with candid, playful, and evocative portraits. Stalnakers Photo Studio also offers photo-booth rentals for events including weddings, proms, and reunions with fellow cast members from Suddenly Susan.
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.
With her relaxed shooting style, Suzzi Richardson has spent more than 10 years with her eye behind the camera, coaxing sultry smiles and ebullient grins from even the shyest of subjects. Throughout the course of each private shoot, held within her 1,600-square-foot studio, Suzzi works to make clients feel secure so that they can confidently channel their inner sirens for boudoir shoots, get dolled up for flirty pinup sessions, or duct tape their shadow into a flattering pose during portrait shoots.
Before of many sessions, Suzzi styles hair and makeup and throws open the studio's wardrobe, allowing patrons to peruse a vast selection of clothing, sets, and props. Though her photographic forte rests largely in the realm of pinup and boudoir, Suzzi also brings her diverse talents to bear while capturing shots of weddings and children as well. Once shoots have come to a close, she sets to work retouching the images, erasing imperfections while working to ensure that each subject’s personality still shines through.
