Combining her love of photography with her love of meeting people, Emily Rose creates an affable atmosphere for clients during her portrait, event, and wedding shoots. She rendezvouses with patrons at a location of their choice for her one-hour portrait sessions, where guests can swap outfits and strike poses at numerous locales during their allotted time. Afterward, they can opt to purchase a CD of enhanced photos or prints of their favorite shots. Emily also supplies a photo CD to hosts of events, which she covers at an hourly rate. Weddings receive the same CD and hourly treatment, and afterward, shots are posted to an online gallery for sharing. She also offers a free consultation for events such as weddings, wherein she and the couple discuss their image goals and how to swiftly disguise the cake for photographing as a relative that couldn't attend.
Studio One to One's photographers posture subjects in casual, comfortable positions against understated backgrounds before capturing photos. Families can cuddle each other, aspiring models can smile with their eyes in glamour shots, and expectant mothers can flaunt ever-growing tummies and chocolate-covered pickles. After shutterbugs snap shots, patrons can immediately view video proofs, and video slideshows of the session's shots come complimentary with every appointment. Color pics of the day's strongest shot are printed in four different sizes, from images that slide snugly into wallets to 11"x14" photos perfect for living rooms or neighbors' bedrooms. Sessions should be booked by phone or online at least 24 hours in advanced.
On top of all the technical know-how it takes to competently wield a camera, you need to have an obsession for chasing that elusive moment when your subject opens up and flashes a genuine, powerful emotion. It's not easy, but photographer Melissa A. Dozier sure makes it look that way. At M.A.D. Images, Melissa draws on a background of professional courses to snap images that capture what it feels like to be a child, newlywed, or pregnant mother whose baby gets all the attention.
The eyes behind Bri's Eye Photography belong to Brian Scott Kalish, a professional photographer who has honed his chops since his youth, when he helped as an assistant in his parents’ photo labs.

Now Brian specializes in portrait photography for small and large groups, including receptions, corporate events, and family portraits. He is also skilled in product photography and photography for children and animals.
Each of Angela Clifton Photography's sessions begins with a phone consultation, during which photographer and customer work together to plan photo shoots that focus on everything from babies to entire families and pets. Forgoing the confines of a studio, staff shutterbugs travel to locations that best capture each subject's personality. They may photograph couples posing at sunset along a beach, or a newborn first learning to photosynthesize beneath the natural light of the sun. After sessions, the crew retouches images and uploads photographs to an online gallery for customers to peruse.
Quality photos capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings much more efficiently then papier-mâché sculptures. At studiolano, photographer April Catalano utilizes her many years of experience to photograph subjects with a microscopic attention to detail. During a one-hour session at studiolano’s fully equipped studio, April will rattle off 50–75 shots of multiple poses with the speed and precision of a camera-fitted, laser-guided cheetah. Striking images are artfully captured with an uncommon eye to provide game-changing glimpses of the subject’s pleasant disposition that can’t be replicated with an emoticon-riddled letter of recommendation. After the photo shoot, customers place their package order from the comfort of their plush, indoor hammocks with online proof viewing and ordering.
