As former fashion photographers, Sarah Browne and Ina McConnell have eyes for texture, color, and spotting just the right pose. Just as impressive, they are able to capture these shots with or without directing their subjects. In fact, during weddings, they prefer working behind the scenes, allowing visual stories to unfold as they would with or without a camera present. When the occasion calls for it, however—it might during boudoir shoots—they deftly direct subjects into sultry poses and maneuver lighting to elicit evocative and expressive shots.

The experienced staff is available for a wide array of photo shoots, from weddings to community gatherings to in-studio portrait sessions.
Matthew Turri traces his interest in photography all the way back to his birth in Rochester, New York, which is also home to the headquarters of Kodak. It would appear that some Kodachrome bonded with his DNA, as he focused heavily on picture-taking in high school, eventually pursuing photojournalism at the University at Albany-SUNY. Since then, Turri aimed his aperture as an intern for the New York legislature, a staff photographer for a daily newspaper, and a freelancer for numerous weddings and events. Now in full command of his own prowess, Turri lends his services to families romping in the sand and superstitious brides and grooms sharing drinks on the opposite sides of a door.
Weeks before expectant moms meet their bundle of joy, the ultrasound technicians at Baby's 1st Appearance give them a glimpse into motherhood. Their elective 3D and 4D sonograms work like radar in the womb, emitting sound waves into the belly that bounce back and, based on return time, generate an image of soon-to-be sons or daughters. Parents can memorialize the session long after their baby's first birthday with photos (black-and-white, color, or 3D color) or DVDs of the sonogram's findings.
Michelle Zuccaro interned at Teen Vogue and for the iconic Annie Leibovitz, but she'd rather capture the glimmer of a child's smile than the glare of the red carpet. For 10 years before she took up the study of fine-art photography at St. John's University, she volunteered to work with children ranging from 6 months to 7 years of age at a vacation Bible school. During those years, she developed a keen sensitivity to children's moods—"I wanted to be a teacher before I discovered photography," she says. With her professional photography career now in full throttle, she specializes in portraits of children, but also snaps holiday-themed family photos and flattering headshots for upcoming auditions for Wheaties commercials.
