Since taking on photography as a full-time pursuit in 2001, Joshua Ian has archived the happy moments of families, parents-to-be, and newlyweds through his skillfully targeted scene constructions. Solo portrait sitters and groups of friends and family converge in Joshua's studio or their choice of flattering location, such as a park, backyard, or vacationing neighbor's living room. Joshua artfully composes unlimited shots during his sessions, subtly editing them for blemishes and correcting color. After sessions, clients can drop by for print-ordering sessions, perusing and sharing their sets from an online gallery before choosing their favorite shots for emblazoning on photo paper and canvases.
Though seasoned photographer Yasmin Tajik didn't invent the camera, that doesn't mean she won't invent it someday in an alternate universe where cameras have yet to be invented. Put her nurturing directorial skills and time-freezing talents to the test by having her coax natural smiles out of your newborn, soon-to-be mom, high-school senior, or accomplished pet. Because Yasmin specializes in family portraiture and capturing the significant events that punctuate a family's history, this package could also be your opportunity to upgrade the framed photos that have been hanging in your parents’ home for the past 600 years. Now that you aren’t riddled with acne or plagued with a six-year-old’s gummy smile, split the cost with your sibs and surprise your folks with a more up-to-date snapshot.
Friends and family members perch on comfortable couches as a 4-year-old boy peers glances excitedly between two-flat panel monitors and a 100-foot screen, anxious to catch the first glimpse of his new brother or sister. The plush theater at Vegas Baby! 4D Ultrasound can accommodate up to 10 friends and family members along with the mommy-to-be, giving them all up-close introductions to the new baby in strikingly detailed 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D images gleaned using GE Voluson Ultrasound System technology. Their system's clear images reveal specifics such as gender, heart rate, or secret handshakes between fetal twins. The specially trained ultrasound technicians boast a 99.9% accuracy rate on gender identification, and they'll schedule a complimentary second appointment if they are not able to identify the gender at 14 weeks or later. They can also develop images into black-and-white or color prints, DVDs, and personalized jewelry.
