With more than 50 years of combined experience snapping and framing shots, the artists at Schwabe Studio Photography usher fleeting moments into the future during in-studio and on-location sessions. They specialize in photographing families, newlyweds, and soon-to-be-graduates, who can choose from seven unique senior portrait sessions. Sports-themed shoots showcase young athletes in action, and birthday parties inside the studio capture youngsters dressed in whimsical costumes. Once each session's shutters have snapped shut, the photo artists easily print out the digital images, which, unlike film images, need not be developed inside a stolen cocoon.
Photographer Dan Cleary is much more than a photographer—he's an artist. In fact, Dan has a Masters of Fine Arts degree to prove it. Perhaps that's why, as the photographer at Cleary Creative Portraits, he's been in business for more than two decades. Or perhaps it's the promise he makes to his clients that if they aren't over the moon about their photos, he'll return their payment in full. But with his eye for capturing family portraits, newborn babies, wedding days, and other special occasions, those instances are rarities.
The photographer behind LaLaLand Works has a mission: to provide high-quality work with a personal touch. During shoots, she goes on-location to her client's choice of spot—indoor or outdoor—to photograph families, couples, children, and high-school seniors. She also uses her talents behind the lens to capture wedding pictures, boudoir shots, and business photos for proud CEOs to keep in their wallets.
As a child, Lauren Schierloh grabbed her father’s 35-milimeter Nikon and took her first steps into a passion that would later become her career. Today she arms herself with the latest digital technology to capture every last detail and emotion during portrait sessions for families, kids, couples, and moms-to-be. Lauren wants to capture moments in time through her photography so clients, like she does, can recall everything surrounding an exact instant with one glance at a picture.
Nixon Photography's skilled team of portrait producers captures relaxed, natural images of subjects ranging from young children to newlywed couples. Shoots can be conducted at the company's state-of-the-art studio, which features a wealth of props and backdrops, or at a preapproved location in Germantown, such as a verdant nature reserve or alongside a rusty railroad. Shoots focus on portraying intimate details and unique moments, such as the furtive glances of a young couple.
Mary Cherolis’s passion for visually capturing memories has carried her through a successful decade of snapping images since graduating with her photography degree. At the helm of Red Bricks Photography, she relies on her knack for capturing clients’ natural moments and dynamics as she documents portrait shoots and special events, from the wobbly steps of toddlers to the wobbly steps of high school graduates. Mary’s husband Dave can also be found behind the lens at Red Bricks, bringing his videography talent to events such as weddings. Together, the husband-and-wife team gives clients the benefit of still and moving images on their important days with the ease of hiring a single company for their photography needs. After any kind of shoot, the pair offers prints of shoot images, along with other options such as online galleries, gallery-wrapped canvases, and cards.
Between their regular photo sessions, Red Bricks Photography gives back by snapping images of departing and returning military members through Operation: Love ReUnited.
