As the mother of four small children, Lauren Wicker knows what it means to be patient. She also knows how quickly cherished moments come and go, and the importance of preserving those moments as often as possible. With that in mind, Lauren steps behind her camera to conduct on-location shoots, specializing in everything from babies and families to weddings and school portraits. She also works extensively with special needs children and adults, and has photographed approximately 100 special needs individuals during her career.
In the rural community where photographer Rusty Worden grew up, locals were fond of urging one another to "cowboy up." Ever the sparkplug, Worden coined the phrase "rocker down" as a light-hearted way of expressing his own individuality. He lent the name to his business, RockerDown Studios, where he works to channel that same independent spirit into helping clients express themselves during in-studio and on-location photo shoots.
RockerDown Studios boasts a 1,500-square-foot space, complete with sets, props, and backdrops that add life to family portraits, maternity photos, and graduation pictures. Worden also packs up his kit and travels to wedding ceremonies in order to shoot video footage and snap candid photos of the bride, groom, and guests during the festivities. He also offers design service for businesses and extends some co-op studio time to photographers in need of space and chameleons that like basking on green screens.
A goofy grin. A couple of happy wedding tears. A newborn’s wonder-filled gaze. To Allison Jayne Meder, every moment is magic, and she captures the best of them through the lens of her trusty camera. She honed her skills for documenting memories while studying photojournalism at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but it’s her lifelong passion for authenticity that allows her to recognize and freeze the most meaningful emotions. She draws out these emotions during laid-back portrait sessions for families, couples, kids, and moms-to-be. To give her photos an extra touch of the dramatic, she scouts eye-catching locales and works with exquisitely composed close-ups as well as panoramas. She also adds polish to the final product with digital retouching services, ensuring that colors pop, light softens, and least-favorite cousins are airbrushed away for flawless magazine-quality productions.
