The focus of Mark Vacker Photography is people. Whether it is a family portrait, a wedding, images of a baby, or a model at a studio session, I strive to find that unique look each person can deliver. Your look, your personality, and most of all, your emotions are important in creating unforgettable images.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but that doesn't mean it should be prohibitively expensive. The photographers at Redeemed Photography know the importance of establishing long-term relationships with their clients, which is why they offer affordable prices and tasteful, casual sessions that keep people coming back for more, and their focus on family photography means that they often snap photos of children as they grow up.
Cars line up at the drive-thru window, where instead of bags of burgers and fries, staffers hand over bundles of glossy personal photos. Inside Creative Photo & Digital Imaging, digital techs convert media such as VHS tapes, records, and reels to DVD and CD, while across the store, photo experts transfer snaps onto album prints, museum-grade canvas wraps, and gifts such as coffee mugs and puzzles. Heirloom family portraits, ravaged by rips and sun damage, doff their imperfections in the photo-restoration lab, and an onsite portrait studio captures clans as they update their sweater sets through the years. Creative Photo & Digital Imaging also hosts photography classes on subjects from how to take better pictures on camera phones to the intricacies of digital SLR cameras.
Since 1982, Nautilus Photography has been capturing the precious milestones and semi-precious inch-rocks of families, high-school seniors, and the newly engaged within its studio and surrounding gardens. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the interior with sunlight to naturally accent patrons' pearly whites, dimpled cheeks, and enviable toucan beaks. During the one-hour session, up to seven customers (additional subjects will incur an additional charge), comprising a family or a new superhero group in need of promotional photos, can choose between several backdrops and amass a litany of props for swan-dives into piles of throw pillows and feather boas. Out on the sun-bleached blonde-wood deck, vases of hanging ivy speckle the white stucco walls stained with hints of aquamarine, and latticework awnings complete the playful integration of Floridian shoreline and English garden. Subjects can pose on a sand-colored cast-stone bridge overlooking sultry tropical foliage, or disappear into the vegetation to nail the "fleeing sasquatch" pose.
Educated in fashion and portraiture photography, Alison Beyer approaches each session with an eye for capturing precious moments and details. Alison will take a minimum of 75 shots during the sitting while masterfully catching clients in their natural element, should that be midchuckle or midlevitation. After the session, an 11"x14" custom wall print will be provided, with the option of purchasing additional prints or a CD containing all the session's images ($250). All color photos will live online for 30 days after the shoot.
For decades, JCPenney Portraits has welcomed families into its friendly studios, where professional photographers expertly photograph subjects of any age. Digital cameras, professional lighting, and a wide selection of backgrounds all work together to ensure a professional, personalized look for every family portrait, school picture, business headshot, or baby announcement. To customize the session even more, the staff also encourages guests to incorporate items with special meaning such as a baby blanket or a family heirloom. From a first baby portrait to senior pictures and engagement photos, JCPenney Portraits helps to preserve special family memories to come.
After the final flash, clients and a team member head to the viewing kiosk, where they can select their photos and customize them. Beyond traditional printed portraits, memories may also be preserved on high-resolution CD, gallery wraps, wall art, or through JCPenney Portraits' archival program, which allows clients to store and share their portraits online.
