Husband-and-wife duo Mike and Barb capture special moments from behind the lens. They travel to brides and grooms on their wedding day, and set up photo shoots for families and graduating seniors. An outdoor studio in Waterford provides 3 acres of breathtaking backgrounds with fields, trees, and ponds of liquid gold.
At Maelynn Photography, an experienced photographer frames artful engagement photos, snaps candid shots at wedding receptions, and composes memorable family portraits. A collection of online galleries includes youth photography, photos of couples, and event coverage.
Keri Jolley might coax out a smile with a joke, or ask a child to help her think of a special name for her camera, but she never orders anyone to "say cheese." That's because she strives to preserve natural moments rather than performances—a tactic that leads to easy grins and big laughs. She adjusts her cheerful approach to suit the age of each client during her sessions, snapping pictures of newborns asleep on a feathery blanket, toddlers perched in an oversize teacup, and children in both studio and outdoor settings. Her portraits of families, teenagers, and pets are similarly candid, with results ranging from sophisticated prints to collections of images arranged onto storyboards. She even composes new formats for upcoming holidays, such as Valentine's Day cards that kids can exchange as practice for when they propose via snail mail.
The shutterbugs at LakeView Photography have a knack for capturing fleeting moments of genuine pathos. Whether shooting during an irreverent trash-the-dress session, capturing the quizzical look of an infant not altogether certain about her canine companion, or a framing a heartwarming family-portrait vignette, the staff’s ability to draw out moods and emotions comes in handy. The studio’s specialty is wedding and family and senior-portrait photography, and its portfolio is filled with a mix of poignant black-and-white photos and highly saturated color photos as vibrant as a freshly waxed rainbow.
In the last 40 years, Portrait Scene's photographers have helped to memorialize special moments in the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults across the country. By constantly working with families, they have mastered the art of calming toddlers and keeping parents still enough to say or even pasteurize cheese. Outdoor shoots make use of natural tones, such as those of crystal-blue lake waters and green, leafy trees. In the spring months, photos brim with the pastel buds of tulips and the shine of bluebirds applying makeup for the first time all year.
