Green Toes' photographer likes to capture the candid moments, as that's where she thinks you'll find the real story. And telling stories through pictures is her goal. She spins those tales during shoots for families, couples, and kids. Whatever she's shooting, she relies on her experience as an event and fine art photographer to manipulate light in ways that convey the emotion of the moment. Her event experience means she's also great at covering weddings with the same attention to light and the unfolding story.

Jacksonville Magazine informs the population of Florida's largest city with five publications that cover a wide gamut of content, including local news, economic issues, notable restaurants, wedding planning, and influential residents. The flagship magazine arrives monthly to enlighten subscribers about the happenings in their city; recent features include an assessment of the care provided at local hospitals, an evaluation of local schools, and a guide to local lounges for those who enjoy late-night revelry or reviewing different barstools. The bimonthly 904 magazine keeps readers abreast of the region's continued economic growth, the business moguls driving the city, as well as topics including personal finance, business travel, and networking.
Home magazine grants readers a glossy-paged window into the city's best examples of interior design, gardening, and other domestic exploits. Each annual edition of Taste amasses menus from more than 250 local restaurants, and installments of Bride boast bountiful information on cake makers, honeymoon destinations, and safety tips for hosting nuptials inside erupting volcanoes.
Olan Mills Inc. 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 re-create the 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.
The staff at Barnett's has been conserving the artwork of others with custom-made frames since 1951. Using molding that ranges in intricacy from plain black borders to the gold-leaf-trimmed arabesques of a Louis XIII–style frame, framers cut enclosures to fit paintings, family treasures, valuable artwork, jerseys, and flags. Then they choose from an inventory of acid-free mats and conservation glass to sandwich art into its hermetic new home. Owner Drew Derrick-Bisbee's traditional art training, meanwhile, helps him when he’s restoring damaged frames and art, undoing destruction caused by water, fire, or a gaggle of teething babies. Barnett's showroom is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For more than 25 years, the experienced art and design consultants at Framing Establishment and Fairfax Gallery have been guiding customers as they select from a collection of more than 5,000 frames. Hand-carved, leafed, and metal picture huggers come customized to fit any image or memento, all of which the gallery picks up, delivers, and installs for free throughout the continental United States. Customers can give cherished images the treatment they deserve with custom mouldings from a variety of manufacturers, plus trimmings such as gold and wooden frames, mat accents, and foam-core backings.
Visiting customers can peruse the store’s gallery of local and Florida artists, gorging eyes on a feast of contemporary and traditional landscapes, still-life works, and sculptures. Artists can also be commissioned to craft custom artwork, helping gussy up a drab wall or take the place of a broken windshield.
