With more than 50 years of combined experience snapping and framing shots, the artists at Schwabe Studio Photography usher fleeting moments into the future during in-studio and on-location sessions. They specialize in photographing families, newlyweds, and soon-to-be-graduates, who can choose from seven unique senior portrait sessions. Sports-themed shoots showcase young athletes in action, and birthday parties inside the studio capture youngsters dressed in whimsical costumes. Once each session's shutters have snapped shut, the photo artists easily print out the digital images, which, unlike film images, need not be developed inside a stolen cocoon.
Mary Cherolis’s passion for visually capturing memories has carried her through a successful decade of snapping images since graduating with her photography degree. At the helm of Red Bricks Photography, she relies on her knack for capturing clients’ natural moments and dynamics as she documents portrait shoots and special events, from the wobbly steps of toddlers to the wobbly steps of high school graduates. Mary’s husband Dave can also be found behind the lens at Red Bricks, bringing his videography talent to events such as weddings. Together, the husband-and-wife team gives clients the benefit of still and moving images on their important days with the ease of hiring a single company for their photography needs. After any kind of shoot, the pair offers prints of shoot images, along with other options such as online galleries, gallery-wrapped canvases, and cards.
Between their regular photo sessions, Red Bricks Photography gives back by snapping images of departing and returning military members through Operation: Love ReUnited.
Photographer Christina Brown manages to cast everything in a flattering light. With a degree from The Ohio Institute of Photography informing her techniques, she snaps subjects against natural backdrops that lend each shot its distinct personality. An expecting mother stands against a field of growing ferns; a graduating senior launches into the air with a smile; a newborn rests soundly in his parents’ hands. In black and white or in highly saturated color, Christina’s images are precisely composed without feeling forced, an aesthetic that carries across her regular in-studio or on-location shoots, as well as wedding sessions that capture the big day better than embedding a hidden camera inside the cake.
Nixon Photography's skilled team of portrait producers captures relaxed, natural images of subjects ranging from young children to newlywed couples. Shoots can be conducted at the company's state-of-the-art studio, which features a wealth of props and backdrops, or at a preapproved location in Germantown, such as a verdant nature reserve or alongside a rusty railroad. Shoots focus on portraying intimate details and unique moments, such as the furtive glances of a young couple.
