Century-old trees line the quarter-mile driveway to Focus On You Photography's log-cabin studio, greeting visitors with the same timelessness owner Kim Cartmell and her team create in their photographs. Kim has travelled around the Niagara region snapping wedding shots since 1993, and now she and the team welcome subjects to their own idyllic photogenic turf. Outside, an antique buggy and wrought-iron gazebo dot the three-quarter acre of land, which serves as a natural outdoor backdrop for family portraits beneath the leaves or engagement shoots by the creek.
Focus On You Photography's unique children's fantasy portraits immerse young ones in whimsical scenes, whether exploring moments as a fairy, unearthing a pirate's booty of dubloons and Reader's Digest back issues, or flaunting leather jackets atop a miniature motorcycle. In addition to Kim's many specialties are her bike portraits, which capture the just-as-tender love between riders and their rides.
Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.
The theater at The Screening Room Cinema Cafe bears more of a resemblance to an intimate club than a multiplex, seating its guests at small tables so they can sip on beer and wine during films. The floor-level screen flashes with arthouse cinema, including new indie flicks and cult favorites, as well as classics from cinematic giants such as Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg. In addition to its usual screenings, the café also hosts poetry nights, film festivals, and high-definition broadcasts of sports games recorded by a mascot with a giant camera for a head.

Schedule an outdoor photo shoot at your family's favorite park to replace the mantle's oscillating fan with images of naturally windblown beauty. Or put one of Farrell Photography's photographers' nurturing directorial skills and time-freezing talents to the test by having him or her coax natural smiles out of a child, high-school senior, or athlete. Because photographers will travel anywhere within 20 miles of the studio, this is a wonderful opportunity to commemorate a favorite tree before its mulching.
"Never, never, never give up," is the driving mantra for David Oreck, who flew combat missions with the US Army Air Forces in World War II and returned home to build a business empire from scratch. He set out to design a machine to lighten hotel employees' load, making a lightweight vacuum cleaner as opposed to the traditional bulky, burdensome commercial cleaners. Naturally, the domestic market began clamoring for his high-powered yet easy-to-handle devices, and soon Oreck vacuums could be found in homes throughout the country.
Today, the company continues its tradition of innovation, simplifying household tasks with Steam-Glide mops for hard floors, HEPA-filter upright vacuums, and stain-killing cleaning products. Oreck's commitment to clean sends it headlong into the future, with high-tech air filters that react to their environment with automatic sensory controls, filtering odors, allergens, and curse words.
