In the last 40 years, Portrait Scene's photographers have helped to memorialize special moments in the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults across the country. By constantly working with families, they have mastered the art of calming toddlers and keeping parents still enough to say or even pasteurize cheese. Outdoor shoots make use of natural tones, such as those of crystal-blue lake waters and green, leafy trees. In the spring months, photos brim with the pastel buds of tulips and the shine of bluebirds applying makeup for the first time all year.
Brian Bowers, a former talent agent, founded Braedy Photography in 2007. Having spent more than 20 years in the entertainment industry, he was familiar with the plight of struggling actors and models. Bowers founded the studio to give hopeful talent an affordable way to obtain pictures of their head. Professional headshots are necessary for the careers of actors and models, and can further the professional journey of many performers, including clowns, dancers, comedians, and animorphs. Bowers specializes in headshots, as well as portrait photography for matriculating youth, gesticulating families, and hiccupping children. With today's deal, customers of all life paths are treated like models, receiving touch-ups and lint-downs from a professional stylist and three outfit changes during their session. Choose to have pictures taken either in the studio itself, with its hardwood floors and numerous backdrops, or in one of the scenic locations around the building. Afterward, Bowers will go through the assembled images and select the best of each of your outfits for three 8x10 prints ($25 value each).

Born in Eastern Kentucky, Kevin Messer's lifelong pursuit of beautiful visual images owes a lot to his Appalachian roots. He likes to capture slices of Americana in his mixed media and digital paintings, whether it’s the sun shining over a country store or the red rock peak of Zion Canyon's Watchman. He sells small format digital reproductions of his work, some as small as note cards, as well as full-sized mixed media canvases, a fitting centerpiece to a collection of home décor.
When she's around her family, Carrie Redmon—owner of Redmon Photography—insatiably seeks out old pictures and inquires about the story behind them. She describes herself as "extremely sentimental," so tracing her family's roots is in her nature. It turns out her job comes naturally, too. Today, Carrie helps other families document cherished moments during in-studio and on-location photo shoots, drawing from eight years of experience behind the lens.
