Straub Photography captures the individuality of every portrait-sitter, preserving memories of your tattoo tribute to Laura Ingalls Wilder for years to come. Professional, accredited photographers snap pictures in the 5,000-square-foot indoor studio—with hundreds of backgrounds to choose from—and in the 5.5-acre outdoor studio, offering friendly tips and posing suggestions. Mug and vogue your way through the 60-minute session while the camera clicks away, taking plenty of shots to make sure your multiple personalities shine through on film. After the shutterbugging session, models receive an 8"x10" portrait print of the image of their choice, perfect for proving to skeptical future generations that 2011 was the year everyone's soul was stolen.
Fusion Photography specializes in artistic and organic fine-art portraits ideal for senior pictures, business headshots, and photos of brand-new babies. A one-hour photo session begins with a preshoot consultation to forge a common vision between subject and photographer (a $50 value), freeing the shutterbug to pursue mantle-ready images set against the in-home feel of the Fusion Photography studio. After capturing wild light and taming it with practiced technique and minor touch-ups, Fusion Photography traps customer-selected shots in two 5”x7” prints (a $64 value) and loads 10 retouched, printable images on a CD (a $400 value) ostensibly for posterity, but actually as fodder for dummy VIP passes to exclusive gatherings of high-flying librarians.
At Moments Photography, seasoned shutterbug Lori Reeder combines top-notch picture-snapping skills with professional photography equipment, capturing images of everything from babies to blushing brides. With this deal, you’ll get a basic photo session ($45 value) in one outfit at Lori’s well-lit studio—perfect for immortalizing the shining smiles and model-imitation poses of your family or child. After the images have been frozen in film, the raw photos will be retouched and distilled into a video slideshow and mini proof book, offering up the purest essence of photogenic presence.
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.
Photographer Teresa Haller has meticulously trained her photo trigger finger to capture portrait posers in their most natural states, highlighting subjects in their true form without any artificial additives. High-school seniors can combine indoor and outdoor backdrops during their shoot, just in case they want their hopeful grin juxtaposed with a favorite stable-horse, a riverside sunset, or the devastation of an over-achieving science-fair volcano. Teresa also knows how to corral families, children, and newborns into the frame—adding dimension with artful diagonals, color with bouquets of marigolds, and surreality with a spotless bed of white linen on a field of green grass. Engaged couples, meanwhile, can preserve their apex of adorability in a form that's easily displayed on mantels and bookshelves.
