Nixon Photography's skilled team of portrait producers captures relaxed, natural images of subjects ranging from young children to newlywed couples. Shoots can be conducted at the company's state-of-the-art studio, which features a wealth of props and backdrops, or at a preapproved location in Germantown, such as a verdant nature reserve or alongside a rusty railroad. Shoots focus on portraying intimate details and unique moments, such as the furtive glances of a young couple.

Mary Cherolis’s passion for visually capturing memories has carried her through a successful decade of snapping images since graduating with her photography degree. At the helm of Red Bricks Photography, she relies on her knack for capturing clients’ natural moments and dynamics as she documents portrait shoots and special events, from the wobbly steps of toddlers to the wobbly steps of high school graduates. Mary’s husband Dave can also be found behind the lens at Red Bricks, bringing his videography talent to events such as weddings. Together, the husband-and-wife team gives clients the benefit of still and moving images on their important days with the ease of hiring a single company for their photography needs. After any kind of shoot, the pair offers prints of shoot images, along with other options such as online galleries, gallery-wrapped canvases, and cards.
Between their regular photo sessions, Red Bricks Photography gives back by snapping images of departing and returning military members through Operation: Love ReUnited.
The two young brothers smile shyly from beneath their caps, their suspenders and bowties slightly askew on their small frames. From behind her camera, Tracy Snyder gently asks the older boy to lean in toward his little brother, and as a mischievous smile breaks across his face, she captures the fleeting grin with the click of a button. A champion of immortalizing moments such as this one, Tracy prides herself on creating essence-capturing portraits thanks to her skill for forging relaxed connections between herself and each of her subjects.
Tracy—a shutterbug with years of experience both behind and in front of the camera—founded Little Rascals Photography as a means of exploring the timeless appeal of old portraits, which is often lost in modern portraiture. This predilection for the past is evidenced in her signature sepia and black-and-white shots that hearken to bygone days, thanks to vintage costuming and careful lighting. Tracy further upholds this old-world approach to photography by hand-tinting her monochromatic shots with pops of color. Her strengths in creating vintage looks also translate to the modern photographing style she uses when taking high-school senior portraits. Each carefully arranged shoot is held either in Tracy’s studio, which houses indoor settings with stairs and windows, or outdoors amid the scenic picket fences and waterfalls found throughout the historic village of Sharon Woods Park.

Rather than posing their subjects in front of bland, lifeless studio backdrops, the photographers at LMents Design use the beauty of nature to add vitality to their photos.
