At Orange County Animal Medical Center, Dr. Randall Bondurant and Dr. Erin Boileve treat four-legged pals to the type of veterinary care they would give their own pets. After running his own clinic in Atlanta for 23 years, Dr. Bondurant and his wife moved west and opened their own veterinary center. Dr. Boileve, a Chicago native and proud owner of three dogs, moved to California in 2011. At the center, the doctors and their staff provide a range of medical services, from routine shots and checkups to much-needed surgeries, for ailing dogs, cats, and pet rocks that got skipped too hard.

After a fruitful modeling career, Lori Brystan moved to the other side of the camera lens, where she began to capture artful portraits of families, kids, and women that would look at home in the pages of a fashion magazine. In 1989, she opened Brystan Studios, which eventually expanded to include a team of professional makeup artists, hairstylists, set designers, and photographers. Inside the professional studio, a large dressing room brims with props, fan mail, and glamorous costumes. Using in-studio sets, Lori captures images ranging from burlesque-themed boudoir shoots to pared-down images, such as women posing in front of a white sheet or siblings lying in a hammock. The studio also specializes in love-note videos, professionally produced short films that capture the subject's inner starlet without the use of a net. The busy shutterbug also works as beauty editor for the lifestyle pub Greer's OC and penned High Impact Portrait Photography, a book on framing eye-catching portraits.

Like a real jungle, Scooter’s Jungle is full of vibrant colors and potential for adventure; unlike a real jungle, however, most of its attractions are inflatable. Named for its tropical theme, the indoor family-fun center’s inflatables range from gargantuan slides and a zip line to an obstacle course, where kids can build the agility necessary to finally outrun their shadows. For a break from the pillowy structures, kids can play ping-pong and air hockey at the free game tables, or nosh on pizza during private birthday parties.
