Ken, the founder of Munson-Cox Portrait Design, set up his studio with children in mind. To get genuine smiles out of adults and young ones alike, the photographers constantly reach for their fun-loving sides, ready to roll around on the ground with tots to get the perfect angles or get them smiling by debating favorite ice-cream flavors.
Within bustling retail centers, Studio One to One Photography's shutterbugs cultivate an oasis of professional calm as they draw out individual personalities through poses, props, and backgrounds. These elements of style combine artfully to create sophisticated family portraits, gleeful snapshots of childish charm, and eye-catching glamour shots. Whether they immortalize moms-to-be showing off baby bumps or seniors chewing diplomas, print packages fill wallets with creative snapshots or decorate mantelpieces with images more elegant than a gazelle in a top hat.
Andrea Pender's sunny attitude seems to reflect her love of outdoor photography. A shutterbug since childhood, she has learned to channel natural light to enhance both urban and earthy settings. Her studio sits by a patch of woodland and a burbling creek often featured in her shoots. She doesn't get bored of the scenery, though, because she brings her signature chipper spirit and a fresh artistic eye to each new session.
Andrea specializes in family portraits and weddings, though she also snaps baby photos, boudoir images, and headshots. By building a comfortable repartee with every visitor, she is able to capture candid moments without first disguising herself as a piece of topiary.
