Former Masters champion Fred Couples has competed on golf courses around the globe. So he had plenty of inspiration to draw from in designing Westfields Golf Club, which incorporates Northern Virginia's unique topography into its 18 holes. Amid the rolling hills, natural wetlands, and towering beech and oak trees that pepper the course, a lake looms to the left of the signature third hole as players take their tee shots. Other features make the course unmistakably Virginian—on hole 13, for instance, a Civil War burial site comes into play on the right side. After taking in all the course has to offer, players can relax and untangle their coiled hips by visiting the clubhouse's indoor and outdoor dining areas.

When Carrie Karki began her study of photography more than 20 years ago, her interest wasn't in grinning families. As a horticulturalist, she took many close-up pictures of plants and insects, capturing her beloved nature in great detail. These photos still form a notable portion of her portfolio, where she's captured the multicolored kernels of freshly picked corn, the channeled bark of an austere tree, the futility of a praying mantis trying to woo a hood ornament. She takes this eye for the sublime and her affection for the outdoors into her sessions with humans, setting them in pleasing lighting within outdoor scapes. An impish child may peer from between the bars of an iron fence, or a coursing river may become the backdrop for a family tableau.
The professional photographers at Target Portrait Studios capture paramount moments in premier lighting with high-tech digital cameras and a choice of vivid background images. After clients discuss pose preferences with their portraitist, subjects take the stage for approximately 10 minutes of flashing bulbs, bright smiles, and focused lenses. Clients are welcome to bring props and shadow puppets from home, and after choosing a background, they can further customize each image with one of the studio's props, if desired.
