For more than 35 years, the professional photographers at Mortensen Portrait Design have framed personal moments with timeless elegance. In the interest of honoring each client's unique aesthetic, the staff engages subjects during every step of the portrait process. Their catalogue of studio backgrounds and sets accommodates high-school seniors, family groups, children, and pets, whose images are always given the classical treatment: technicians bond the images individually to canvas or print them with a textured finish, then apply a coat of clear glaze. The resulting product befits most any mantelpiece perch or sophisticated vehicle, where it can function as a fancy upgrade from a rearview mirror.
The studio's child-friendly services benefit its customers and the community as a whole. Fairy portraits—shot in an onsite garden to reduce run-ins with feral toadstools—bestow youngsters with shimmery wings for a charming keepsake. Additionally, during their annual Cute Kids Portrait Contest, more than $10,000 in session payments, orders, and votes go to the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer Fund.
From Tuesday to Saturday morning, the Freeman greets readers at their doors with a mix of national articles and reports of the local happenings of Waukesha County. Much like alien conspiracy theorists, the writers in the technology section share their viewpoints on the eternally evolving digital front, and the sports section follows the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, as well as the Badgers of the University of Wisconsin. Those hoping to buy a used car, real estate, or the final bounty hunter action figure needed to stage a small-scale production of The Empire Strikes Back may peruse the extensive classifieds section.
The friendly clothing cleansers at Martinizing Dry Cleaning have been scrubbing the enrobements of southeastern Wisconsinians for more than 40 years. The noble employees will confront any stain with strong words and all the dirt-scattering ammo in their arsenal, ensuring your garments return to you soft, clean, and smelling like pastoral Latvian pancake houses. Sweat-soaked blouses ($8.03), mud-caked slacks ($8.04), butter-drenched bedspreads (starting at $24.31), and your beloved sea-water-doused prom jumpsuit ($21.30) will be cleaned, freshly dried, and folded into neat origami ostriches. The Department of Natural Resources–partnered environmental dry cleaner will bestow upon you the freshly cleaned garments on recycled hangers, enclosed in recycled bags.
