Lacy Hammack made her first forays into boudoir photography while living with her Marine Corps husband in the midst of the Mojave Desert. While she was first armed only with the skills of a yearbook photographer, she taught herself the ins and outs of professional studio lighting and photo editing, moving away from what she calls her "Photoshopographer" days to perfect a lighter touch that softly airbrushes imperfections while highlighting natural beauty. Lacy's extensive experimentation with lighting and posing has blossomed into a well-honed pin-up style that she and her all-female staff practice at AdoraLee Boudior Studio's two locations.
After passing through AdoraLee's storefront lingerie store (at the Norman location only), clients are treated to extensive coaching on how to get the most from their boudoir shoot. Pre-session pointers help women choose their ensembles; during the session, music and chatter sets the air at ease while photogs guide their subjects into every pose, snapping alluring eye-level shots in the makeup room or sensual high angle shots over the studio's fluffy bed. Four additional set options—including red damask or black velvet backdrops—inspire photographers as they expertly blend studio lighting with a wide variety of poses to flatter any body type. Through high-contrast color shots and classic black-and-white prints, AdoraLee photographers strive to make every woman—whether curvy, pregnant, postpartum, or mid-werewolf transformation—into a sensual siren.

Boasting an experienced owner and instructor with a passion for many styles of yoga, Tranquility Yoga fosters flexibility through a multitude of classes in a friendly, community-oriented atmosphere. The studio's current summer schedule offers a Vinyasa Flow class on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, making healthy activity easy to fit into a busy life of family, work, and rooftop ping-pong leagues. Novices to the ancient art of yoga develop skills including basic poses and mindful breathing at the studio’s Sunday afternoon class. Students may opt to partake in the Power Yoga + Power Pilates class, and the Rock and Roll Yoga class may be ideal for music fans and Elvis impersonators looking to loosen up wiggling hips. Saturday mornings start with the rousing Sun Salutation class, after which the Tranquility Yoga class encourages a friendly mingling of yogis over coffee and tea on the outdoor patio. After the school year starts in August, Tranquility Yoga's schedule will change to offer only afternoon, evening, and weekend classes to accommodate the nighttime hours of the all-vampire student population.

When Troyce Smith was younger, she worked as a model, and like Michael Jordan, she learned what it took to make a beautiful shot. Now, years later, it’s her taking the photos, using the lessons she has gleaned over the decades to create beautiful pictures that immortalize treasured moments. Specializing in natural-light photography, Smith works together with her clients, asking, as she says on her website, "what story would you like to tell?" Zeroing in on each of her subject’s needs, she constructs photos that capture tender moments with newborns, loving looks between fiancés, and the cloaked resentment of family members who really wanted a statue made of them.
