Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio 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 recreate 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.
After graduating from college with a degree in industrial photography, Steve Schroeder honed his shutterbug skills at Houston's Gittings Studio before opening his own studio in 1987. Eight years later Steve and his family relocated to Macon, where he constructed his new studio in the Hardeman-Hatcher house, a Victorian Village dwelling built in the 1880s. The abode's elaborate architecture and flashbulb-wielding ghosts set the backdrop for many of Steve's portraiture sessions. These sessions always commence with a consultation, during which he helps clients determine which outfits and location best complement their style. Any image snapped in studio, on location, or at weddings—Steve has covered nearly 1,000 nuptial ceremonies—undergoes basic retouching. Patrons can also elicit Steve's services for framing or restoration needs, watercolor cards, or to commission the studio's resident artist to create an oil painting of a favorite image from their shoot (turn around time of six–eight weeks).
Showcasing hands-on, interactive exhibits, the nonprofit Georgia Children’s Museum sparks an enthusiasm for learning in visitors between the ages of 2 and 12. Youngsters can design a newspaper page in the journalism exhibit, anchor a news broadcast in the TV studio, or curl up with a book in the hushed confines of the reading room. Meanwhile, in the internationally themed Passport to the World exhibit, tykes don authentic kimonos, beat handmade African drums, and discover how Magellan built the blimp that he used to circumnavigate the globe. The Smarty Pants Gift Shop stocks glass pendant necklaces and Magna Morphs toys, whose sets of animal parts can be reassembled into new, imaginary creatures. Above the store, in the Little Learners’ Loft, kids aged 2 to 5 enhance their make-believe skills with age-appropriate toys. Along with its permanent exhibits, Georgia Children’s Museum accommodates kids with events and weekly activities, including craft and story times.
More than 40 years ago, the doors to Fountain Car Wash & Lube's full-service car wash tunnel opened to reveal a slew of heavy bristle brushes. Since then, the tunnel has been refurbished with soft cloths, high-pressure water jets, mild cleaning detergents, clear-coat waxes, and touchless dryers that blow away any remaining water droplets before they attract thirsty cops. The car wash works in tandem with the detail shop, where seasoned technicians shampoo interiors and revivify paint jobs with biodegradable waxes, Rain-X, and Simoniz double-bond paint sealer. In 1995, the staff added a full-service lube shop, an authorized Valvoline Express Care outlet that features transmission flushes, tire rotations, oil changes, and complimentary checkups in between services.
Drawing on an arsenal of natural Aveda products and med-spa technology, the staff at Pure Skin and Body tackles tension and skin trouble with a variety of procedures. The salon specializes in a range of laser treatments, in which trained technicians wield focused beams of light to remove sun spots, dissolve multicolor tattoos, and prove to their parents that not only super villains use lasers for a living.
Aestheticians complement laser sessions with depilating waxing or threading treatments, organic or microdermabrasion facials, and permanent-makeup application. They can also help to augment health naturally with vitamin-supplement kits, which customize vitamin intake based on medical analysis to strengthen hair, skin, and nails like a doctor’s birthday wish. Carried on air rich with the scents of aromatherapy, slow sighs drift through the salon, emanating from patrons undergoing hot-stone massages.
