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.
Conspiracy theorists need not apply: the elusive Nessie of Loch Ness doesn't snap the images at Nessi Photography. Instead, that duty falls upon Vanessa Duron, who trains her lens on posed and candid moments alike during her on-location sessions. Said shoots primarily focus on five kinds of subjects, including newlyweds canoodling after their nuptials and youngsters playing in the park. After each session, Vanessa assembles up to 15 of her best edited pictures onto a CD, and even preserves her clients' favorites with prints up to 8"x10" in size.
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.
The professional shutterbugs at Paul Marcus Photos capture timeless images of each person in front of the camera lens, creating memories to be enjoyed for years to come. Up to six people or poltergeists can come together to model their way through a one-hour in-studio photo shoot, receiving friendly tips, posing suggestions, and demonstrations of proper eyebrow waving along the way. For an extra fee, nature-loving families can choose to vogue in an outdoor locale.
The professional photographer behind Mitchelle Creations discovered at an early age that if she wasn't the force behind her identity then someone else would assign an identity to her. So she grew up constantly creating art, which ultimately led to her developing a passion for photography. She eventually focused on capturing the whimsical moments that occur when children are at play, creating fairytale-like settings complete with costumes. She quickly built up her portfolio and now shoots a variety of services such as portraits, wedding photography, and fitness photography.
