Freelance photographer Ashley Hutchins relies on natural lighting to make her subjects pop. Under the name Drawing with Light, she's photographed individuals, children, couples, and families, framing her subjects from unusual angles and during candid moments. In her quest to capture the perfect moment, she has traveled to locations ranging from wild fields and ponds to front stoops and old brick buildings.
Boasting 28 and 38 years of experience respectively, the consultants at LightStyles and Decorative Lighting enliven living spaces with contemporary and traditional fixtures that illuminate indoors and out. Both locations offer a sizable selection of Golden Lighting products, including iron-forged wall lights with antique aesthetics ($62.30) and rubbed bronze hanging single lights ($58.40), which brighten dark rooms and gift visiting trapeze artists with the comforts of home. The electric candle dealers also stock a variety of lamps, chandeliers, and sconces from name-brand manufacturers such as Westinghouse, Kovacs, Arroyo Craftsman, and Troy Lighting. Friendly consultants roam the shops’ well lit floors ready to aid customers in choosing the ideal fixture for dining room renovations, living room updates, and hidden passageways to underground man caves.
A photo shoot with professional attention to detail can elicit the same emotions felt at the time it was taken. That’s what GeGe Penley loves about the art form—the easy access to total recall. She also loves working with others and gets to do so frequently during sessions for bridal showers, moms-to-be, families, and newborns. Large events could use a keen eye, as well, so GeGe also covers weddings, parties, sports, family reunions, and more.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print.
