Although it was the burst of light from a Polaroid flash bar that initially drew Aubrey James to the photo world, the photographer prefers to work with her subjects in natural light. During shoots, she follows couples, children, and families through the park or along the beach, capturing a sense of fun and relaxation that simply cannot be replicated in the studio. After sessions, Aubrey retouches images and provides clients with the option to purchase prints or digital images that can be shared with grandparents who live in the Internet now.
A bride and groom recline on a dock, the white of her gown complementing the pale horizon, which slowly fades into blue. A ballerina stands en pointe in a window, the sun illuminating the delicate tulle of her tutu. A couple sits cross-legged in a library, the leaning books on the shelves mirroring their backs as they lean in to kiss. A newborn sleeps in a nest of textiles, the lace and linen standing out against the baby's smooth skin.
TOV Studio Photography's skilled photographers, each of whom has more than a decade's worth of photo shoots under their belt, understand how to use the everyday world around them?from the sky to the sidewalk?to create images that feel as unique as their subjects. Outdoor shoots use architecture and elements of nature to frame newlyweds, families, and graduating seniors, using the natural light to emphasize the happy glow in a couple's eyes or the pristine white of a bride's not-yet-grass-stained gown. It's not all indoors, though?in the comfortable confines of the studio, photographers create custom backgrounds that bestow a similar, tree-free kind of individuality.
Steve Yanni first felt the inexorable pull of photography more than 20 years ago, when he picked up a camera and started snapping photos as a hobby. Since then, Steve has ceded to his artistic calling, dedicating his career to capturing special events, family portraits, and sensual boudoir shots, as well as imparting his knowledge upon fledgling shutterbugs during instructive workshops. The bridal specialist enlists a team of talented photogs to help him at events, ensuring that no special moment goes undocumented, from the cutting of the cake to the swallowing of the ceremonial flaming sword.
A newborn's first photo opportunity is a moment of glory that can't be captured by a camera phone. It takes a real photographer's eye, with a real photographer's professional camera, to properly document day one of the miracle of life. That's the specialty of My Hospital Photographer, a team of assured shutterbugs who've honed the art of post-cord-cutting portraiture. The flexible staff is always ready for the big moment, arriving early at the hospital and maintaining flexible schedules in case the bun extends its time in the oven, or if the critter is snoozing during the appointment time. Once the once-in-a-lifetime shot has met Mom's approval, My Hospital Photographer offers prints in an assortment of packages, wall prints, and announcements.
