At KidzPix USA’s photography studio, founder Margaret Saffold captures youngsters at their cutest, outfitting them with a massive selection of props and themed costumes ranging from basketball players to fairy princesses. With the help of her husband Andre Saffold, Margaret builds a fun atmosphere for kids and parents, who can relax and enjoy refreshments during the shoot. After the shoot, customers can make an appointment at the studio to see their photos, which they can choose to preserve as canvas prints, enlarged prints, or key rings.
Photos Onsight Studio’s squadron of shutterbugs captures memorable family, children, and maternity portraits to be preserved for generations to come. They also train their camera eyes on weddings and quinceañeras and apply their skills to headshots and boudoir sessions. Skilled in various visual fields, they restore old photos and design business cards, logos, and posters, as well.
Our philosophy.... It's not about us... It's all about YOU and the memories we create for YOU.
Although we specialize in wedding photography, we do photograph family, graduation, events, products, and portraits for commercial use.
Melanie Ramiro's work isn't all about airbrushed Hollywood glamour. "I probably find more beauty in the primal nature of things than in an artificially created façade," she explained to Steve Robles, a former coworker. This devotion to realness is evident in the work she's done with women from all walks of life—including single moms, married women, and breast cancer survivors. No matter the clientele, Melanie caters her shoot to individual visions, be they sweet—filled with softly lit, high angle shots of women in classic pinup poses or tangled in sheets—or sultry, featuring darker lighting, higher contrast, and a larger dose of femme fatale. "I like my work to tease and tempt but never give it all away," she says, and her work achieves this through the use of plain backdrops, minimal props, keeping the focus solely on her subjects. As a former dancer and acrobat, Melanie's eye is naturally drawn to interesting lines and flattering poses, a skill that helps women of all shapes and sizes feel comfortable in front of the camera. "I want my images to be show-stoppers," she exclaims, "I want people to be breathless for a moment when they first see them. I want a strong reaction."
As a young girl, Beth Wickham never had to fight the other children for dolls; she only had eyes for the camera. Today she lives out her lifelong passion for photography by capturing clients during many of their biggest moments, such as weddings, baby’s first step, or Grandma’s first handstand. After her shoots, she professionally edits photos, making them gallery ready by reducing redeye and softening any unwanted blemishes.
When Carol Nanfito steps behind the lens, she’s less preoccupied with camera angles or lighting than with the people posing for her. Prioritizing subjects over technical wizardry is what lends each of her portraits—from kids playing with their favorite pups to fathers escorting their daughters down the aisle—their direct emotional style. To preserve the memories from her on-location and in-studio sessions, Carol offers various sized prints, as well as albums for certain packages, such as boudoir. She even hosts boudoir parties where groups of girlfriends can each strike sultry poses during half-hour photo shoots.
