Flying Turtle Photography captures indelible images of kids and families during intimate snapfests. Photographer Melissa Gilbert brings a nuanced touch to maternity and newborn sessions, snatching honest expressions from tykes and proud parents. Flying Turtle’s 2,000-square-foot boutique studio illuminates compositions with both industry and natural light as Melissa puts her subjects at ease in front of a multitude of backgrounds. Alternatively, scenic outdoor spots set a natural backdrop for wedding photos, baby portraits, and Arbor Day publicity fliers, all of which can be printed by the studio.
The skillful shutterbugs at Studio Keepsake take pride in capturing a variety of memories for posterity; they'll thoughtfully photograph graduating seniors, families, babies, people carrying babies in their bellies, people carrying babies in their tote bags, and more. During your hourlong portrait session, one of the studio's professional picture-takers will coax a natural-looking smile from your lips as easily as you can say "easy-cheese." Snuggle up with your best friend forever to commemorate your camaraderie, or give the gift of a 1,000-word vocabulary to your newborn gurgling baby. Though there is no hard limit for the number of people in the photo session, Studio Keepsake would like you to bring immediate family only.

The Petersens bend light to their will and draw emotions from families, children, and graduates to capture memorable portraits. Subjects travel to the Petersens' campus for one- to two-hour portrait sessions held inside their indoor studio or outside in a two-acre garden replete with blossoming flowers, benches, and a pond stocked with tiny Loch Ness monsters. Indoor portraits are captured between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and outdoor shots are taken at the beginning and end of the day, when the light is most compelling. Indoors or out, the photographers manipulate light and shadows to create mood and emotion. The Petersens also understand corneas to be much more than just the windshields of the brain, and focus on subjects' eyes to coax expression and spirit. Throughout the sessions, subjects strike an array of poses sitting on wrought-iron benches, standing in front of neutral backdrops, and engaging in polite conversation with tulips.

Being a clothing designer typically requires years of training and practice. At American T’s, however, the title of designer only requires a few clicks of a mouse. In the outfitters’ online store, clients can select designs from team mascots to gamboling Easter bunnies, edit the design’s color scheme, and add text. Alternatively, they can co-create a design with the in-house art team, matching the image to a birthday party’s theme or an office’s fuchsia-only dress code. The shop can screenprint finalized designs onto Ts, hoodies, hats, and sweatpants. For a more minimalist look, visitors can also order clothing graphic-free. American T's also offers spirit wear for four local schools: Beggs, Mounds, Glenpool, and Kiefer.
