Now, he captures the first kiss between a new husband and wife, the joyful celebration of a baptism, and the fleeting disappointment on a birthday boy's face when he realizes that he didn't turn into Superman after blowing out his candles.

Ocean Spa's main studio looks as though a massage party will break out at any moment. Eight beds—each draped in red and white bedding—huddle together, emulating the communal healing experiences common in the Far East. But clients with privacy predilections can opt for a private treatment room separate from the main area.
