The photographers of fortune at Kiddie Kandids Portrait Studio are seasoned kid-wranglers, and will prove their prowess at capturing high-spirited younglings in their oft-rumored but rarely seen "still" state—capturing smiles at their finest. To avoid the stiff, artificial poses that so often result from preserving offspring in carbonite, Kiddie Kandids Portrait Studio's shutterbugs get the wee ones relaxed and comfortable so that the special spark of their personality shines through naturally. After the session, (session fee normally $14.99), the best poses will be reassembled into striking 10"x13" and 16"x20" wall portraits ($19.99 and $59.99, respectively) complete with your choice of portrait enhancements ($9.99 each) such as black and white, sepia tone, or Robocop-vision.
Boston native Tony Todisco honed his videography skills with gigs at Walt Disney and NBC. Since 1985, he's applied those behind-the-lens talents to his own company, Award Winning Video and Photography. With multiple high-definition video cameras and an unobtrusive photography style, Tony and his team cover weddings with film and images assembled into hardcover albums and slideshows on DVD or Blu-ray discs. His in-studio portraiture, meanwhile, relies on posed compositions to capture high-school seniors, kids, glamorous models, and families that pay glamorous models to be their stand-ins. Along with individuals, Tony collaborates with businesses to craft corporate videos with professional voice-overs, on-location shoots, and quality special effects.
