In the last 40 years, Portrait Scene's photographers have helped to memorialize special moments in the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults across the country. By constantly working with families, they have mastered the art of calming toddlers and keeping parents still enough to say or even pasteurize cheese. Outdoor shoots make use of natural tones, such as those of crystal-blue lake waters and green, leafy trees. In the spring months, photos brim with the pastel buds of tulips and the shine of bluebirds applying makeup for the first time all year.
A soft focus surrounds the subjects in Love Photography's images, lending warmness to a close-up of a bride wearing her veil and dreaminess to a sultry couple posing together in a boudoir session. During these shoots, Love Photography’s team of photographers makes subjects feel at ease by scheduling complimentary consultations before the shutter even starts snapping. Like William Tell shooting an apple off his son’s head, the staff believes that practice makes perfect, and they’ve been practicing their photographic aim during weddings, family portrait sessions, and kids’ photo shoots since the studio opened in 1970.
Fresh fruit is all well and good, but it doesn't play to most Americans' lazy stance on chewing.

Juice smoothies are an excellent tool for healthy lifestyles and are a delicious strategy for getting your daily fruits and veggies that doesn't involve pretending to be a Nigerian prince with a surplus of money and a surfeit of bananas.
The adept craftspeople of MVP Trophy and Awards emblazon keepsakes for personalization and to commemorate achievements. Unique etchings of words or a logo elevate simple gifts to pricelessness, transforming a classic wood-boxed chess set into a distinctive cast of characters for a vacant dollhouse.

The same versatility that helped Lauren McClintock transition from active duty in the army to photography informs her wide-ranging photo portfolio. A wedding photographer with an eye for lovey-dovey moments, McClintock has also drawn on her BS in Photojournalism to capture stark portraits of Cleveland’s homeless.
During her photo shoots, McClintock gets to know her subjects before showcasing their personalities in her portraits. During shoots in the settings where subjects feel most comfortable--which range from church socials to hammocks strung between two recliners—she composes her images to capture authentic moments and sensory memories. She honors the keepsake nature of photographs with high-quality prints, emblazoned on long-lasting acid-free paper.
