After becoming a mother, Stork Vision Ultrasound Imaging Centers' founder Malissa Nied sought a way to help expecting families share in the joy and wonderment of pregnancy. Each Stork Vision location is helmed by a state-licensed medical director and staffed by sonographers who are registered or registry-eligible with the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. In the hands of these trained professionals, 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D sonograph and ultrasound machines scan bellies to produce stunning images of future bundles of joy. Stork Vision offers its services in packages that range from black-and-white still images for gender determination to full-color videos set to music. Stork Vision also offers party packages that include DVDs, digital images, prints, and cupcakes that reveal the baby's gender.
When the photographer of Dallas Boudoir wants clients to feel sexy, they head to the bedroom—or an empty power station. Many of their shoots take place at Off The Grid, a spacious building that used to supply electricity to the city's street lights. Now, its exposed bricks and industrial feel provide a unique backdrop for sultry poses. Some snapshots even take place on the rooftop, where subjects show off their favorite lingerie ensembles in front of the soaring skyline.
Other shoots typically occur in a home or hotel suite. Regardless of the locale, however, the photographer aims for the perfect balance of comfort, classiness, and sensuality. The photographer guides clients through flattering poses and carefully retouches the images to provide the quality of photos you might find in a magazine or a romance-novel flipbook. The pictures instill confidence in women of all body types, and, when arranged into DVD slideshows and customized books, they easily become gifts for significant others.
