Focus Photography's Larry Odom leverages the shutterbug skills gained during years of globe-trotting photography work into personalized portrait sessions. Prepare photogenic faces for a scheduled sitting ($50+ in studio, on location prices vary), allowing Odom to capture the joy of recent births, the infectious energy of graduating students, or the stoic grace of ventriloquist duos. Following shoots, customers can select preassembled packages ($65+) or order their favorite à la carte prints in a variety of offspring-embarrassing sizes, including 4"x6” ($15), 8"x10” ($45), and a mounted 20"x24” ($315). Each photo loses imperfections with included enhancements, burnishing dull tones with color correction and replacing frowning faces with the digitally inserted head of Teddy Roosevelt.
Jon LeMay and his photographically inclined staff capture the innocence and cuteness of youth with personalized children’s portrait sessions. Whether chronicling an infant’s progression over the first year, or conducting sociological analyses of behavioral shifts in 2-year-olds, parents can carry their bundles of joy to the relaxed, professional studio for each stress-free session. After four separate snapshot sojourns, customers’ discerning peepers can choose the cover art for their keepsake photo box, as well as four prints to store within its heartstring-yanking interior. Groupon-holders should call 24 hours in advance to schedule an appointment and ensure their cell phones haven’t been replaced by glazed granola bars.
Winner of WeddingWire’s 2011 Bride’s Choice Award, Ocken Photography is owned by snap-happy siblings Bob, Jen, and Chris Ocken, who combine their 20 years of experience to create striking, natural-looking portraits with artistic eloquence. Snap sessions can be single subject or may include family members, pets, or down-on-their-luck local celebrities, and can be staged in Ocken's comfortable studio or off-site at an indoor, outdoor, or door-manufacturing location of your choice. Once the star-like glare of the flash wears off, clients can choose their favorite shots from a set of web proofs, taking 10 professional 5"x7" artist prints home, where they can then be gifted to family members, friends, and enemies in need of a new dart board.
Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
