On Betsy Butler's website she writes, "[Photography] takes what we see with the naked eye and transforms it into something extraordinary, or something thought-provoking." She shares the extraordinary and thought-provoking images she catches when she photographs other people through portrait sessions with families, children, and individuals. She provides previews of proofs from each session, as well as DVDs and prints of favorite images. She also shoots weddings, helping couples create a final album that's as much a work of art and heirloom as it is a potential meal for the town monster.
Professional photographer Leslie Wilkes captures important moments in clients' lives, whether snapping shots of a newborn or cataloging a wedding. When shooting for events, he takes pictures prolifically, providing clients with a disk of all the high-resolution photos afterward.
In her private, comfortable studio, expert shutterbug Kim Mitchell of Legacy Portraits puts her subjects at ease with her professionalism, sense of humor, and advice on poses to accentuate the beauty of any body type. During a 45-minute shoot in front of a boudoir background, Kim draws out the inner allure and confidence of a woman or couple, creating images as elegant and classy as a monocle-wearing ballerina. The picturesmith orchestrates a playful, glamorous experience as subjects change into up to three outfits and strike poses with their own props or those already at the studio. For an additional $75, an aesthetician will style tresses and expertly apply mascara, eye shadow, and lipstick. A choice of two 5"x7" prints or one 8"x10" print yields the perfect gift for a spouse or an adoring pet lovebird to hang in its cage. Finally, subjects choose five images for retouching that will be transferred to a CD and posted online in a password-protected gallery.
Before joining forces, Jennifer Goldstein-Fritz and Alba Gonzalez-Nylander spent years pursuing their individual passions for video, honing their craft separately at renowned companies including FOX, E!, and CBS. Eager to venture out on their own, the two women joined their talents in 2010, co-founding AJ Media Services with the goal of combining their knowledge, with services that include bringing major-media quality techniques to home movies. In the years since filming their first promo, Jennifer and Alba have worked tirelessly to create polished, unique moving pictures via a host of services, from video production to duplication and transfer services. To create immersive digital experiences, AJ’s virtual tours throw viewers into smooth, 360-degree views of spaces, from the dining room of a recently opened restaurant to a new home’s finished basement and its organ-playing phantom.
