Seasoned shutterbug Jeffrey R. Kepner brings more than 25 years of photography experience to each photo shoot. A background in photojournalism helps him to capture the essence of each moment while snapping high-contrast black-and-white or color shots of families, graduating students, and even pets. Though Bella Classic Photography's studio provides a professional backdrop for photo shoots, Jeff also travels to shoots at parks, jails for trees, and other scenic locations. Digital retouching yields crisp images, which can be printed or shared digitally.
Photographer Grace Trudeau was a full-time model before she picked up her first Nikon DSLR. Drawing upon her experience on both sides of the lens, Grace gives clients posing ideas and shows them her images as she shoots so they can see how they look. During each session, she wields two Nikon DSLR cameras and a trio of lenses , whether she’s working under the soft lights of her home studio or on-location on a farm, at the beach, or in the woods. At the end of each session, Grace custom-edits images, enhancing colors or injecting textures to add depth. Next, she prints out the resulting images onto canvas prints, statuettes, holiday cards, and accordion books; or transfers them onto iPhone cases, mouse pads, and shirts.
When she’s not shooting and editing, Grace is donating her time to various charities and mentoring beginning photographers. At her studio she teaches them about DSLR camera settings, the basics of shooting, and how not to smear peanut butter on your lenses. She then leads them through a real photo-shoot; and invites them to edit their photos alongside her while she gives advice.
The eponymous shuttersnapper at Laura Couture Photography captures candid moments of tykes and transforms them into snazzy portraits and prints. Like a sundial wristwatch, the dedicated photographer works with only 100% natural light, expertly nabbing the pure, unadulterated bliss of childhood with sunlit flair. Each on-location session lasts approximately 60 minutes, with an unlimited fount of precious images captured in each shoot. Within four weeks, customers receive an email containing a link, password, and secret knock allowing access to an online gallery of the results. Once they pick out their four favorite slices of life, doting parents receive a high-quality set of prints (within 3–4 weeks), along with a pair of digital images to show off to adoring robot nannies.
Experienced lens master Danielle Krenz captures seasonal family portraits in her warehouse studio, using them to ornament holiday cards and create mailable memories. Up to six subjects can model during a 20-minute shoot, which Danielle can hold inside or outside, weather permitting.

A do-it-yourself type her whole life, wife and mom Jessica taught herself the ins and outs of photography. She was drawn to it because of its precision in telling stories and capturing the emotions of a precise moment—and it still captivates her. She captures these moments with photo sessions for kids, couples, and families, as well as high-school senior portraits and newborn photography. But she doesn't stop with posed sessions: her degree in wedding and event planning helps her capture the more candid nature of large festivities.
