This week may bring Michael Kors and Bebe, and next week could feature Ann Taylor and Seven, but no matter when someone stops in Eye of the Beholder Consignments, items from high-profile brands can be found on the shelves. Handbags may carry names such as Prada, Coach, and Juicy Couture, and clothing may hail from Talbots, Chico's, and Coldwater Creek. The shop also stocks shoes, business suits, and maternity wear for expectant mothers and dudes who just want to get closer to their children by dressing as a nanny. A portion of proceeds goes to charities such as the Baltimore Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.

Professional photographer James Cucinotta snaps pictures with a photojournalistic style and creative techniques to transform life’s ephemeral moments into enduring art. During a session, families of up to six, mothers-to-be, babies, and humans who have woken up as bugs relax under Cucinotta's friendly manner to expose long-dormant smiles in the natural light of the great outdoors or the indoor arena of a professional studio. Customers can follow up their session by fawning over images online and perfecting flaws, such as animal transmutations and phantom second heads, through the magic of Cucinotta Images' digital retouching. The favored photo will then materialize as a family of one 8"x10" and twin 5"x7" doppelganger prints.
What began as a children's portrait studio in 1985 has evolved into Fotographia—an independently owned photography studio where veteran shutterbug Bob Grichuhin captures images of the whole family. Grichuhin has earned certification as a master photographer through the Professional Photographers of America. His work has been recognized by institutions such as the Maryland Professional Photographers Association, and he has served as a judge for a print competition held by the Delaware Professional Photographers organization.
In addition to family portraits and wedding photography, Grichuhin memorializes the smiles of high-school seniors. He snaps his way through both in-studio and outdoor sessions, traveling to a variety of locations or using the natural lighting in his own portrait park—a garden more floral and inviting than a welcome mat painted with Monet's Water Lilies.

A picture is worth a thousand words, an exchange rate frequently used by Caught By a Flash Photography’s shutterbug, Lisie. By manipulating the composition and content of her images, she aims to tell a story whether she is shooting in her studio or on location. Subjects can choose sites where they feel most comfortable, which could range from their homes to the attached garages where they hide from their toaster collections. Lisie’s past work includes family portraits and pictures of riders and their horses. Her vision also extends to specialty shoots, such as senior portraits for soon-to-be high-school graduates, or wedding packages, which include up to eight hours of nuptials coverage.
