  • Olan Mills
    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.

  • Real2Reel Photography
    After working for 13 years in the soft-drink industry, Dave Bunk shifted career paths and searched for an occupation that stirred his passion. Upon founding Real2Reel Photography, David assembled a staff of photographers, graphic designers, and touchup artists that snaps and produces headshots, wedding pictures, and portraits of families or pets. Clientele can pose within Real2Reel Photography's downtown Memphis studio or rendezvous with the shutterbug crew at locations such as the Main Street strip mall, the Memphis Botanic Gardens, a high-school sports arena, or wormholes that lead to the Taj Mahal. Viewings commence three to five days after every session, wherein participants can review their proofs and select which favored retouched shots would best befit digital images or prints. Models can also commission Real2Reel Photography's in-house designer to fashion custom albums, coffee-table books, or hand-crocheted needlework portraits to accompany their photography packages.

  • Lasting Expressions Portraits
    Whether capturing a young toddler at play or a newlywed couple's blossoming love, the photographers at Lasting Expressions work hard to make clients look their best, doing everything from advising them on wardrobe decisions to creating compelling and unusual contexts for their shoots. During children's shoots, depending on the season, little subjects plop their feet in a faux pond next to baby ducklings, snuggle fluffy rabbits against their cheek, or strap on wings and frolic in a fantasy fairy land. After each in-studio session, Lasting Expressions prints out glossy images of favorite shots almost instantly, allowing clients to return home with a two-dimensional version of themselves without having to hire a cartoon steamroller to run them over.

  • Jaffe Studio
    While Jaffe's friendly crew didn't invent the camera, that doesn't mean they won't someday brainstorm the notion of a time-freezing cube in a parallel universe wherein cameras have yet to be invented. Jaffe Studio's staff of expert professionals has more than 30 years of experience when it comes to capturing the picturesque unity of a loving family, the innocence of juvenility, and the wonderment of a band of roving goat children. Nurturing directorial skills coax natural smiles out of newborns, soon-to-be mums, high-school seniors, families, and pets. A session can even commemorate the joys of marital engagement or the promise of potential that shines in a post-graduation tooth display.

  • Avowal Music Production
    Avowal founder Wes Leyshon doesn’t compromise in his Arthurian quest for the Holy Grail that is sonic perfection. Since establishing Avowal in 2006, Leyshon has used state-of-the-art equipment and an ear that would make a noctuid moth jealous to mix and master music for the likes of Better Than Ezra’s Kevin Griffin and American Idol’s David Cook (winner of season 7) and Katharine McPhee. More recently, his mix of 16 Frames’ “I’ll Be Better When You’re Gone” was used in the season five finale of MTV’s The Hills. After your 60 minutes on the mic ($35–$60) are up, Avowal’s engineers will fiddle with frequencies and dabble in dynamics as they mix together ($75) and master ($35) the best takes—creating a tangible record of your vocal cords’ vibrations that you can then sneak into the bins of your local record store.
