Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio 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 recreate 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.
Think of boudoir photography outfits and you probably think of lingerie. And though there are plenty of black lace corsets and fishnet stockings on display in the Haute Mama Photography gallery, there are also less conventional choices: a loose men's dress shirt and tie, an off-the-shoulders motorcycle jacket, even a strategically placed basketball that serves as a sort of top. It's partly a reflection of the diversity of the photos' subjects, whose figures range from slender to voluptuous, and partly a testament to the creativity of studio owner Leah Severson, who has designed it so that even the studio's most basic package allows for multiple outfit changes. Severson has so thoroughly mastered the boudoir photo business that she holds both group workshops and one-on-one mentoring sessions, during which she shares with other photographers tips for posing subjects, establishing the right mood for shoots, and getting their work to appear on the first page of Google results without taping anything to their monitors.

At Medley Portraits, owner Cassandra Medley creates portraits that capture memories for a lifetime, with a specialization and certification in photographing children with special needs. Cassandra, who has a stepson with autism, sought out extra training because she had difficulty taking her own family portrait. She earned a certification through Special Kids Photography of America, which trained her to interact with kids with special needs such as autism or deafness.
During sessions for children with special needs, Cassandra allows for as much time as the children require—taking unlimited pictures and allowing for unlimited poses to ensure that kids feel comfortable and have fun. Though her specialty is photography for special-needs kids, she happily photographs children of all backgrounds, and is also skilled in high-school-senior portraits and wedding photography.
Astra Creative Photography & Design's newly-married founders, Tabitha and Armando, team up with camera sharpshooters to capture weddings, families, high-school seniors, and newborns with a fashion-inspired photojournalistic style. On-location or in-studio, the team creates richly saturated and detailed images using selective focus, creative compositions, and expert lighting—techniques that they expound on during workshops. They then transform the collected photographs into custom books, retouched digital images, and prints that patrons can display on living-room walls or paste into history books.
