Over her more than 20-year career in photography, Susan Torregrosa has garnered numerous awards, shown more than 100 images in national and local exhibits, and earned the Professional Photographers of America’s prestigious Masters of Photography degree. She draws on the lifetime of dedication that earned her that recognition as she conducts portraiture sessions at Studio T Photography. She specializes in images of families, children, and high school seniors. The photographer creates portraits of kids and kin set against sparse backgrounds or painted backdrops of lush forests. High school students enjoy sessions in natural park and river settings or posing against interesting landmarks, such as a downtown Orlando graffiti wall. Afterward, she preserves her clients’ favorite images with customizable keepsakes such as prints and canvas portraits ideal for decorating walls or covering that ceiling lamp’s sneering face.

A photographer since age 16, Shayna Seaman took a sidetrack into graphic design in college, but soon returned to her first love. After educating herself further about the craft, she and former film student Johnny Bueno founded Pwnage Studios—an homage to Johnny's passion for video games. Today, they work as a team, aided by a few assistants as they capture images of newborns, children, and adults in green parks and other outdoor locations.
Using Canon 5D cameras with L-series lenses, Shayna and Johnny adopt a photojournalistic approach, snapping as many photos as they can in each session to capture loose, candid shots. Though they work in a defined style, they take time before shoots to get to know their subjects and accommodate any special requests. During post-shoot editing, they can render images in color or black and white, helping to achieve a dramatic effect or make photos more easily viewable by dogs.
Midway through the process of framing a vintage Woodstock ticket and corresponding newspaper article for a customer, owner Brian Smith realized that his original design didn't suit the customer's taste and started over, finally arriving at a striking image that delighted the client. With an artist's intuition, Mr. Smith makes sure that each piece he creates suits each client's style, whether he's framing a sports jersey or a very loyal Roomba. He and his dexterous staff employ handpicked tools, such as float mounting, deckled edges, and high-definition framing, to preserve each piece and help it stand out from its surroundings. Eco-friendly framing options ensure that customers can rest easy, knowing that their wooden frame came directly from a sustainable forest and not a plastic mine.
