Diverting his attention from a particularly active nest of eptesicus fuscus, he began photographing the orb, which made no attempt to flee or conceal itself. Hansen continued to document the orb as it reappeared over his house, each night shrinking slightly “as though passing slowly into the spirit world,” Hansen observed. On particularly cloudy nights, the orb would not be present, prompting Hansen to speculate that ghosts may be allergic to thunder.
Maria Bernal developed her international eye for snapshottery over three decades and continents, swiftly earning the 2009 and 2010 Photographer of the Year awards from the Austin Professional Photographers Association after establishing her studio after she moved to Texas in 2007. Specializing in domestic depictions of infants, children, families, and more, she and her expert staff capture relations just as they should be remembered: well-groomed and organized by height. The camera crew's 30-to-40-minute scenic family portrait sessions deftly capture their subjects' personalities, and the infant images provide adorably embarrassing blackmail fodder for tween years to come.
Clique Portrait Studio's photographers arrange families, couples, and babies into comfortable poses before snapping images that look like screenshots from a feel-good comedy movie. Because most of the photos are printed in-house, customers often leave the studio with images in hand on the day they were taken.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
