Operated by an ARDMS ultrasound technologist, My Little Me helps expectant parents to bond with babies in the womb with 3-D/4-D ultrasounds. The center's GE Voluson 730 Pro system uses the same audio waves produced by 2-D ultrasound machines, then builds the information collected into a three-dimensional image of the babies-to-be kicking, playing, and sucking thumbs in utero. After clients obtain a medical diagnostic ultrasound from their health-care provider, My Little Me helps with gender determination, highlighting the baby's facial features. Images are emblazoned onto USB drives and DVDs, and audio from the child’s heartbeat can be forever stored on one of My Little Me’s plush heart beat animals.

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.
Photographic craftsfolk Larry and Wendy Bosely—who have been plying their trade for more than 20 years—brought in associate photographer Bailey Setzler in 2006, creating an artistic triumvirate that offers portrait sessions for seniors, kids, families, and lovebirds. At their Temperance studio, they can arrange both indoor and outdoor areas for posing. They also hit the road and travel to their subjects to document important milestones, from walking down the aisle at a wedding to ripping apart a mortarboard right after graduating from high school.
