A mop of hair fringes an infant's milky-white face, his plump cheeks reminiscent of a porcelain doll. Though the image is black and white, the boy's eyes are as striking as any baby blues—reflections of the white linens gathered around his legs add depth and life to his playful gaze. This photograph, which won Janet Boschker the Canon Par Excellence Award in 2010, is but one of many that have earned the photographer numerous accolades.
At Northlight Photography, the Boschker's own studio, the photographer flaunts her signature blend of award-winning artistry in custom portraiture. Whether capturing the innocence of a child, the love of a family, or the excitement of a special event, she strives to turn each image into an artistic and timeless representation of its subject.

Developed in Austria by sports physiologist Dr. Norbert Egger, HYPOXI technology merges moderate aerobic exercise with innovative medical technology. Futuristic-looking capsules surround the cardio machines, providing light vacuum suction and massage compression to augment the flab-busting process. HYPOXI Studio Ballantyne lines its sunlit studio spaces with HYPOXI's contoured capsules, each designed to address stubborn areas of the body. Though the HYPOXI Trainer S120 and L250 both aim to tone thighs, buttocks, hips, and lower abdomens, the L250 is a lower-intensity option ideal for those with high blood pressure or joint problems. The HYPOXI Vacunaut targets cores as joggers don a pressure suit and set their soles atop a treadmill. Requiring no activity, the HYPOXIDermology consists of a specialized suit with 400 pressure chambers that help diminish cellulite and signs of aging. Each body-shaping session lasts about 30 minutes and is ideal for all ages, fitness levels, and time-traveling schedules.
At BounceU, tots descend upon an inflatable, climate-controlled playground in which they can bounce and ricochet in a safe, secure environment. Regular Open Bounce sessions set kids loose upon a plethora of mammoth inflatables that spark imaginations with their bright reds, purples, blues, and yellows, while private bounce rooms are also available. Whether bounding about in the Batman bounce house, slipping down air-filled slides, or navigating obstacle courses, children discover fun ways to burn off extra energy while building motor skills.
With a plush playground, games, pizza, cake, and a private-party room, the center also makes an ideal venue for birthday parties and special events. Nurturing minds and creativity equally, BounceU also invites kids to camps such as robot creation and programming camps and Create and Bounce, where they divide their time between physical activities and crafting art projects.
