On Betsy Butler's website she writes, "[Photography] takes what we see with the naked eye and transforms it into something extraordinary, or something thought-provoking." She shares the extraordinary and thought-provoking images she catches when she photographs other people through portrait sessions with families, children, and individuals. She provides previews of proofs from each session, as well as DVDs and prints of favorite images. She also shoots weddings, helping couples create a final album that's as much a work of art and heirloom as it is a potential meal for the town monster.
Dividing her time between shoots in Tennessee and the greater Atlanta area, Annika Joy Best comes across all kinds of people, emotions, and moments. That's what she loves most about photography—the details are always changing, challenging her to capture them before they vanish forever. Wielding her training, she masterfully traps those moments in time when covering weddings or snapping off classically composed portraits of families, kids, and couples. Once that work is done, she can even transform pictures into custom holiday, save-the-date, and thank-you cards.

Maria Santini—the eye behind Maria Santini Photography—runs a slim operation, just her and her digital camera. Maria doesn’t need the traditional trappings of photography, like a darkroom, and she prefers natural sun to the canned lights of a studio. She travels to meet her clients at their ideal backdrops, from their own back yard or a sprawling park to a favorite slice of cityscape. Maria snaps pictures of children and families, retouching images on her computer to banish redeye and smooth skin. She delivers the final pictures on CD, empowering her customers to print endless copies at their leisure.
