Wedding parties. Families. Graduating seniors. These are just a few of the subjects that attract the lenses of Classic Image Photography's resident artists. After free consultations, photographer Nicole Waldron and videographer Mike Trentacosti capture still and moving images with a combination of photojournalistic, traditional, and artistic styles. They then edit video and transform images into everything from custom storybook albums to metal prints.

When not at the studio, Ms. Waldron and Mr. Trentacosti hone their skills by snapping photos all over the country. In fact, customers can purchase some of Ms. Waldron's favorite images from her travels, such as the back roads of Utah or the spaghetti mountains of Colorado.

Cats don't have to take a back seat to man's best friend at Catnap Inn's feline-only boarding facility, with 26 spacious guest rooms that provide cats a cozy home away from home. Each 4'x8' private room comes outfitted with a chair and pillow, cubbies for privacy, and a large window with a convenient ledge for bird watching and world-domination plotting. Larger rooms allow feline families to stay together while their human counterparts are away, while smaller, multi-level wooden condos are ideal for kittens. An ultraviolet air treatment system keeps airborne bacteria at bay, and the entire facility is climate and temperature controlled to keep pets cool.

The resident cat herders can administer medicine to kitties that need them, and keep a complete report on how each cat behaved during his or her stay. For each owner’s peace of mind, Catnap Inn has access to emergency medical care and 24-hour fire protection, security alarms, and booby traps set up to catch jealous canines.

Close to the heart of almost every hairstylist is a mentor. At Michiana Beauty College, that becomes true not only figuratively but also literally. An instructor hovers near every apprentice snipping locks, ready to offer guidance on how to best cut an A-line bob or sew an extension. Knowing that practice is key to developing talent, Michiana Beauty College—an accredited branch of Moored Beauty Schools, which has educated cosmetologists since 1959—has its teachers impart the secrets to transforming manes in a salon instead of a sterile classroom. There, they supervise and guide budding hair professionals as they lather locks with products from Wella and Matrix Biolage, carve face-flattering coifs, and tint hair with CHI color. Instructors also nurture aestheticians-in-training, who smooth skin with facials and waxing services, as well as student nail technicians, who brighten fingertips with OPI polish.
