For more than 35 years, 2-D ultrasound technology—which translates bouncing sound waves into digital images—has allowed parents to meet the newest members of their family a little ahead of schedule. Today, technology has advanced: 3-D ultrasounds reveal tiny hands, feet, and faces in full-color stills, and 4-D ultrasounds record live streaming video of fetuses in real time so that parents can make their children into prenatal Hollywood stars. Under the supervision of a board-certified physician, diagnostic medical sonographers with more than 10 years of experience reveal womb interiors while up to six adults sit and watch the 37-inch widescreen monitor. 2-D technology allows parents to listen to small heartbeats, and, if desired, lets sonographers determine gender when the baby-to-be is 15 weeks in the making. Stills from 2-D and 3-D scans and movies from 4-D scans can be recorded for parents to take home. All repeat sessions receive 10–20% off, so parents can come back to make sure their little ones are growing strong and refraining from playing video games all day.
Studio La Femme photographers Meghan Rolfe and Jessie Vera Cruz have spent years perfecting their boudoir and pin-up photography methods. Above all, they have learned to customize their approach to flatter each individual’s appearance, style, and recently manifested superpower. The result is a portfolio that ranges from playful to serious, and uses bedrooms, a professionally lit studio, or the outdoors as backdrops for their models. Meghan and Jessie aim to draw out subjects’ personalities in their images by creating setups that exude each subject’s character. As such, clients may find themselves stretched out in the grass or kicking up a red pump as a pinup model while exposing only as much as they feel comfortable with.

Photographer Patrick Cox channels his obsession into each static narrative he helps to tell. During a one-hour outdoor sitting session (a $125 value), clients can dawn two distinct outfits to support their story. After an hour of snaps, flashes, and smiles, clients then set up a proofing time with Patrick, typically occurring within two weeks of the photo session. To commemorate the occasion, an 8x10 print (a $50 value) is included, giving future generations a glimpse into the not-so-distant past, when photographs were tangible and the Internet was purely imaginary.
