Unlike the DMV, Jay Young Photography is dedicated to delivering custom portraits that capture the style, personality, and correct number of heads of their subjects. Named a Photographic Craftsman by the Professional Photographers of America for his dedication to the profession, Mr. Jay (as he's affectionately known) also handcrafted his custom studio. The various stone and wood façades of the Tuscan-style building serve as backdrops to perfectly tilted chins and mistimed eye blinks alike. Clients can opt to have their session inside the studio or in the 1-acre private portrait garden, which features three different bridges, a canal, an English garden, an Alamo set, a beach, a railroad depot, and a mini Parthenon. Once subjects have finished casting their family as characters in the sword-and-sandals beach-party train-robbery caper of their dreams, Mr. Jay will immortalize their favorite pose in a set of customizable 5"x7" holiday cards, available in a wide range of designs and color combinations. He will also preserve the same pose as a handsome Facebook image that doesn't involve hoisting a red plastic cup.

Anthony Capasso, a board-certified doctor of internal medicine, has channeled his more than 15 years of experience treating weight-related ailments into developing medication-free approaches to weight loss at Thin Centers MD.

Dr. Capasso’s diets come tailored to various lifestyles, ranging from those that work for avid cooks to diets for people with hectic schedules. Each of the programs can also be enhanced with the fat-melting technology of an FDA-approved Zerona laser.
