Cindy Sherman developed a love for photography at a young age and, after working as a professional photographer since 1980, opened her own studio in 1985. Cindy specializes in portraits of families, high-school seniors, expectant mothers, and pets at her studio, which has indoor settings and a 1-acre outdoor portrait garden with plenty of photogenic settings including a waterfall, a castle-style wall, and a crashed UFO. She also travels to local homes and other venues to take on-location portraits and wedding action shots.
Jill Davidson, owner of Emotion Portrait Design, is a PPA Award–winning photographer who strives to create a fun and relaxing atmosphere for guests. A savvy snapper and skilled photo finisher, Jill enjoys getting to know her clients and capturing their personalities in a way that delivers meaningful, time-treasured images. The outdoor family portrait session is an ideal way to capture your entire tribe in one place amongst natural splendors. An accompanying digital image ($375) allows lighting impurities, camera-hogging sparrows, and nature ghosts to be edited out, while allowing you to edit in the middle child you forgot to pick up from soccer camp on your way to the studio. Additional prints cost extra, from $20 for 4"x5" to $528 for 40"x60".
The skilled archivists at MAD Technologies accept old media and document formats via mail or in-store drop off, giving families and organizations a hassle-free means of preserving cherished content that happens to live on obsolete formats. Elderly books become digitized epics, and grainy home movies recorded onto Beta or 8mm film are reborn in pixels, all with customization options and lightning-quick turnaround. While digital material should last longer than its analog predecessors, MAD Technologies' staff plays it safe–technicians automatically archive and store all images and video, in the event that discs should be damaged or run away from home in their rebellious teenage years.
