During the 60-minute session, K&C Photography's staff harnesses more than ten years of experience in shooting and staging photographs that exhibit artistic flourish and meticulous detail and highlight raw emotion. Photographers will exploit natural light and capture un-staged poses of up to six people per shoot, implementing their artistry and expertise to ensure that newborn babies' eyes face forward and pet turtles' bald spots remain hidden. Employing their energetic directorial skills, K&C's shutterbugs will position participants in numerous poses, and digital-quality equipment commemorates graduations, weddings, and other momentous events that move by too quickly to be accurately depicted by courtroom sketch artists. Packages also include a professionally edited DVD with printable, high-resolution images for digital preservation.
The husband-and-wife team behind SMUDGED Prntz Photography, Chris and Re’Nauta Bell, use complementary approaches when composing their color-saturated portraits. Re'Nauta draws on her own modeling experience to style and dress subjects, as well as to help them strike flattering poses. Also a former model, Chris strives to turn each photo shoot into a party—a skill he mastered while snapping shots of celebrities after dark, when their skin begins to glow.
A peek inside Chris and Re’Nauta's portfolio reveals avant-garde makeup, sequins and metal accents that mirror a Latin carnivale aesthetic, as well as classic black-and-white photos with strategic pops of color. The duo lends a digital edge to conceptual portraits with otherworldly effects and composes traditional shots to mark life's milestones.
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.
