In high school and college, Veronica Williams's intense academic schedule soon gave way to art and photography classes, where her passion for taking pictures ultimately evolved into Portraits N More Photography . Today, she blends photojournalistic and artistic aesthetics to capture on-location or in-studio images of engaged couples, families, kids, and high-school seniors. Subjects strike poses in an array of outfits in front of natural backgrounds or special-effects backdrops that put guests right on the 10-yard line of a football field or among crashing waves at the beach.
After each session, Veronica assembles her shots into an online proofing gallery so clients can select their favorites to keep as prints, enlargements, or digital pictures on a CD. For weddings, Veronica teams up with a second photographer to cover the event before amassing a private online proofing gallery and a DVD of images free of blemishes.

Olan Mills Inc. 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 re-create the 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.
