Brothers Brian and Mike are the fifth generation of their family to own and oversee operations at Meade Baltz, which has been transforming the hues of interiors and exteriors since 1876. Paint cans from Benjamin Moore line shelves, and friendly color experts stand ready to advise or deftly mix colors to match palette strips or new pets. Regal First Coat Primer ($35.49/gal.) rolls over surfaces to prepare for Aura Interior ($63.99) or Benjamin Moore Interior Flat ($38.99) paints. Benjamin Moore Eggshell Interior paint gives walls that ovoid touch without eating scrambled eggs for a month to acquire glue-ready shells ($41.95/gal.). For outer façades, layers of ArborCoat Premium Exterior Stain polish dwellings’ outer armor with weather-ready hues and give a deck the confidence to finally ask out the tree its always had a crush on ($44.99).

At seven locations throughout Chicagoland and northwest Indiana and several international sister sites, Eivan’s photographers and videographers preserve memories with a fusion of traditional, photojournalistic, and candid styles. The company's photographers capture family and engagement portraits and have earned recognition for their personalized touch at weddings.
They took home a win in the photography category of TheKnot.com's Best of Weddings competition in 2011 and 2012 and earned one of WeddingWire's 2012 Bride's Choice Awards. A crew of professional cinematographers records the details of the big day, adding soundtracks and special effects. With color-correction technology, the filmmakers can brighten up dark footage or blot the red out of the bride's cheeks during the maid of honor's toast.
Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
Though their specialties may differ, the doctors and therapists at Intuitive Healing LLC share one important trait: they understand that each human body is a complex organism and that no two are quite alike. This common understanding leads them to reject a one-size-fits-all approach to health and rely instead on custom detoxification and wellness programs. To keep bodies comfortable on their journey toward better health, Intuitive Healing’s licensed massage therapists draw on a range of modalities that include trigger-point therapy and neuromuscular therapy. Their detoxifying facial massages stimulate circulation and soothe muscles caught in the self-defeating cycle of frowning at how sore they are from frowning.

That’s because he was already working with them as the manager of a computer center in 1985 when desktops began their ascent to household necessity. Now, as the owner of Velocita Technology, he and a team of knowledgeable technicians offer this extensive electronics-oriented prowess to today’s customers and their robotic pets. At a walk-in service center they mend computers, copiers, printers, scanners, and other devices or lend technical support backed by manufacturers. Additionally, their sales department keeps patrons well stocked in gadgets ranging from digital cameras to laptops to TVs.
