Husband and wife team Sheila and Robert Hurth co-own Tiffany Photographic Studio, helming a full service staff of 10. Together, they distill three-dimensional beauty into contemporary images that pop before plain studio backdrops or vivid sets. With four decades of experience under their shutter fingers, the Hurths supervise charmingly posed family portraits, adorable shots of toddlers and infants amid whimsical props, and event photos snapped on location at weddings or bar mitzvahs. Their studio uses state of the art digital technology, retouching and printing photographs in-house for a quick postsession turnaround. When not standing behind the camera, the Hurths teach photo seminars in Fort Lauderdale and the Carolinas and spend their free time authoring tutorial books and videos on boudoir photography, portraiture, and how to get a close-up shot of a black hole.
The focus of Mark Vacker Photography is people. Whether it is a family portrait, a wedding, images of a baby, or a model at a studio session, I strive to find that unique look each person can deliver. Your look, your personality, and most of all, your emotions are important in creating unforgettable images.
Debra Weisheit Photography’s team of seasoned shutterbugs, helmed by a Professional Photographers of America Certified Professional Photographer, digitally incarcerates milestones and sincere moments of familial togetherness within retina-regaling portraits. After a pre-portrait consultation, photogenic subjects can don their cutest outfits or most dapper gorilla suits for an approximately 60-minute portrait sitting for up to five people on-location or within a commercial studio space; more than five people can be snapped for an additional $20/person fee. Grin, pout, or pleasantly emote as these camera crackerjacks brandish their snapping skills and expert use of lighting. After posturing and posing, newly-minted models can choose their favorite image to have printed on 5"x7" and 8"x10" prints or on an 11"x14" print, which they can frame or use as a customized auction placard.
Cherubic cheeks and happy families are the subjects of choice at Madelyn Jane Photography, where photographer Nikki Green crafts colorful child and family portraits. Nikki brings baskets of cute, kid-friendly props to accent shoots, which she conducts in-studio or onsite.
Inside Tan Lines of Jupiter's bright salon, cool blue walls, tropical plants, and paintings of the ocean set a beachy backdrop for sunless tanning in private rooms. Powerful tanning beds include a standup machine, which promotes an even bronzing without tan lines. Traditional beds mimic the relaxing indulgence of a nap on the beach, with comfortable surfaces, a warm glow, and optional in-room seagulls. Customizable airbrush tans eschew UV rays in favor of Norvell spray tanner—made with mineral-salt bronzers—which imparts a natural glow by matching product to skin tone. Armed with lotions from Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin, experienced staffers recommend the best beds based on skin type and desired final shade.
Nicole Bergstrom is as artistic with babies as she is with tiramisu—although she rarely photographs them together. A former food stylist, Nicole and her husband Allan founded Kinder Image in 1994, and since then have captured the likenesses of 1000s of newborn babies. The shuttersmith specializes in studio sets as well as onsite photography, snapping timeless images as families and children frolic in parks, on the beach, or in their own homes in front of one of Kinder Images' 20 backdrops. Unique specialty packages can follow expectant mothers through each month of their pregnancies or revisit newborns throughout their first year, documenting the ways they grow and change from tiny cherubs to ringleaders of their local stroller gang. After each session, clients can pick their favorite edited shots during a personal viewing session, which Kinder Image prints in sizes ranging from desktop pictures to sprawling canvas wraps and wall art.
