Hour-long photo sessions with Montenero's sensualist shutterbugs yield tasteful, alluring images. Sprightly retro pin-ups recall a time when exposed knees were thought to incite Communism, while more concupiscent boudoir photos awaken subjects' latent sultriness while they pout, preen, and lounge in lingerie. Budding vixens can choose between either a shoot at the photographers' Lawrenceville studio or one within the comfort of their own homes, finally unlocking the eroticism lurking within old leather recliners or double-basin bathroom sinks. Basic retouching services are included with the deal, which is personalized according to each subject's areas of confidence and results in an 8"x10" print.
Photographic Concepts' two experienced photographers frame, compose, and capture wall-worthy memories, employing classic lighting and tasteful backdrops. The flash-popping fiesta begins with a creative consultation, where clients can question the lens-wielders about backgrounds, props, and the color coordination of matching vegetable costumes, ensuring a smooth photo-snapping soiree. Gather the immediate family together for a 60-minute in-studio photo shoot, or let wizened high-schoolers go stag for senior portraits (a $75 value). Maternity pictures can showcase a mom-to-be's blossoming belly, and a new-baby photo invites infants to preen, primp, and pole-vault to glamorous stardom.
The husband-and-wife team behind SMUDGED Prntz Photography, Chris and Re’Nauta Bell, use complementary approaches when composing their color-saturated portraits. Re'Nauta draws on her own modeling experience to style and dress subjects, as well as to help them strike flattering poses. Also a former model, Chris strives to turn each photo shoot into a party—a skill he mastered while snapping shots of celebrities after dark, when their skin begins to glow.
A peek inside Chris and Re’Nauta's portfolio reveals avant-garde makeup, sequins and metal accents that mirror a Latin carnivale aesthetic, as well as classic black-and-white photos with strategic pops of color. The duo lends a digital edge to conceptual portraits with otherworldly effects and composes traditional shots to mark life's milestones.
