Kelly and Kathy's friendship first began in high school, staying strong throughout their college years in Virginia and an eventual move back to Connecticut. Kelly's passion for photography led her to establish her own studio, and Kathy's business and education degrees directed her to teaching—though she never gave up on her childhood dream of becoming an artist. With Simply K Studios, the duo finally combined their respective experiences and industry savvy into a lifestyle photography venture, documenting weddings, senior portraits, infants, and families.
The shutterbug pair tries to capture each client's one-of-a-kind character during sessions, which typically travel to a nearby location or homecoming game reenactment of personal significance. Their prints, digital slideshows, and packages make for prime scrapbooking fodder as they transfer memories to tangible forms.
Cheyney Barrieau Photography's namesake brings years of experience behind and in front of the camera to create artistic images of people, places, and things. Subjects can choose to be snapped at Cheyney’s studio or at a location of their choice, such as an enchanting park or a linen closet ($35 travel fee to locations beyond 20 miles of studio). Voluntary paparazzi treatment is laid upon babies, high-school seniors, engaged couples, headshot hunters, and Pacific Northwestern man-apes. Cheyney will shoot up to 100 exposures to capture the perfect image for a lifetime of self-admiration and dispenses a CD of all the shoot's usable images, an 8"x10" to stuff into film producers’ hands, and a $10 print credit (prints up to 8"x10" are $10 each; larger sizes are available for an additional fee). For an additional fee, the studio heaps on the glitz and glamour with a hair and makeup professional and a group of amateur Ben Franklin lookalikes at subjects' disposal.
The memory-preserving digitizers at MotoPhoto etch outdated images onto conveniently contemporary media. Three DVD transfers transmit home movies from tangle-prone VHS tapes onto easily storable and Frisbeeable DVDs. Add a mix of music, captions, and voiceovers to transform mundane family films into Oscar-worthy documentaries about childhood soccer games and the gritty politicized underbelly of noncompetitive piano recitals.
During shoots at Portrait Simple—a studio specialized in child, infant, maternity, and family portraits—skilled photographers snap an unlimited number of poses in front of a choice of backgrounds and provide the convenience of instant printing. Sessions can take any size group, accommodating families and close-knit juries. Models don simple duds without heavy patterns or logos and can tote props such as sports equipment or special blankies. After striking jubilant, winsome, or wrathful poses, guests sit down with the photographer to select images to turn into prints.
