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.
The clients: those who want to get there and back without a single worry. The fleet: the Cadillac Escalade ESV, a souped-up, all-wheel drive living room on wheels, with stretching space for six passengers, eight suitcases, and a carry-on walrus. The drivers: not just car-jockeys, but former Marines and ex-military. So while the Escalade ride is a comfort in itself, it's the drivers that put the "elite" in American Elite. Each chauffeur is heavily vetted, as able to provide CPR and other life-saving procedures as they are to carry on a cordial conversation. Under their watch, all highway hassles, from road ragers to rampaging high school marching bands, are instantly thwarted, giving riders peace-of-mind en route.
