On a 10-acre swatch of picturesque land, experienced photographer Rolland Krueger plans, poses, and snaps pictures, capturing key moments for couples and families. With nearly 50 years of experience as a portrait ace, Krueger wields his camera confidently, assuring subjects that if they do not enjoy the photographs, he will either take more at no extra charge or turn himself into a monkey's uncle. Each one-hour photography session at the indoor-outdoor studio is preceded by a planning session, during which an unlimited number of smiley subjects can discuss wardrobe and style preferences. Following shoots, Krueger lightly retouches photographs to prepare them for printing. Subjects choose the photographs they'd like to receive in hardcopy ($125 for first 8"x10" or smaller; $89 for duplicates of same pose) and represent them in Congress.
