Morgans' Fine Art Photography's trio of intrepid photographers tame free-ranging images of families, expectant mothers, children, and high-school seniors with clicks from their clever cameras. Hordes of up to 25 pose proudly, minus the interference of wind or the unintentional beard of bees, inside Morgans' 8,500-square-foot studio, or decamp to the adjoining portrait park for a face-flattering bath of sunny natural light (a $75 value). Groups can also gather for a custom-picked on-location shoot at environs within 25 miles of the studio. Following the session, the studio’s team will polish raw visual ore before transferring it to several physical and digital surfaces. Use a dozen note cards (a $35 value) to jot down birthday reminders, keep avatars looking shipshape with 10 Facebookable images (a $39 value), or employ the 11”x14” print (a $239 value) as a visual aid during debates on the line of succession for dad’s title as King of the Barbecue.
Allen Jones has worked as a wedding photographer and "wedding photojournalist" in the Louisville area since his studio opened in 1992, when weddings were invented. A member of Wedding and Portrait Photographers International and the Professional Photographers of America, Allen specializes in family, maternity, individual, and boudoir photography for couples who want to give each other a gift that can be used privately to spice up a romance or publicly to sink any future political ambitions. Even when not commemorating a major milestone in life (getting engaged, getting pregnant, graduating high school, placing in the regional knitting finals), a professional headshot can further the careers of actresses, authors, musicians, clowns, dancers, comedians, spontaneous combustionists, and other performers. Whatever reason you're saying cheese, Allen Jones will tailor your photo session accordingly. Afterward, he'll go through each shot with you and help you pick out the best one. After Allen finishes giving it a professional touch-up, you'll take home three prints.
