Skilled shutterbug Rya aspires to join the lofty ranks of photosmiths such as Jade Albert and Annie Leibovitz through the natural light and natural smiles captured in her artistic portraiture. Her relaxed approach to shoots has landed her work in Home Magazine, and her winsome way with children—a demographic that usually responds to cameras by screaming until their lenses shatter—has yielded commercial images for youth surfwear and dental services. No matter her subject, Rya captures candid poses, drawing out family dynamics and catching the hopefulness of graduating seniors. After shoots, she retouches images and creates online galleries that clients can browse to order enough prints to wallpaper a dining room.

Lucian Badea, the photographer behind PhotoTale Studio's family, children, and wedding shoots, believes that "photography is not about taking pictures." Instead, he proposes that his true job is to find the magic in every moment, from a certain angle to an unexpected smile, and capture it on film for his clients. He didn't always see things this way, though?he says his children taught him to see the hidden beauty in the world, a gift which he tries to pass on with every click of the shutter.
