Husband and wife team Sheila and Robert Hurth co-own Tiffany Photographic Studio, helming a full service staff of 10. Together, they distill three-dimensional beauty into contemporary images that pop before plain studio backdrops or vivid sets. With four decades of experience under their shutter fingers, the Hurths supervise charmingly posed family portraits, adorable shots of toddlers and infants amid whimsical props, and event photos snapped on location at weddings or bar mitzvahs. Their studio uses state of the art digital technology, retouching and printing photographs in-house for a quick postsession turnaround. When not standing behind the camera, the Hurths teach photo seminars in Fort Lauderdale and the Carolinas and spend their free time authoring tutorial books and videos on boudoir photography, portraiture, and how to get a close-up shot of a black hole.
The focus of Mark Vacker Photography is people. Whether it is a family portrait, a wedding, images of a baby, or a model at a studio session, I strive to find that unique look each person can deliver. Your look, your personality, and most of all, your emotions are important in creating unforgettable images.

Veteran shuttersmith Julie Hughes and her husband Peter use their keen eyes and artistic sensibilities to turn precious moments into family heirlooms. During the 30-minute photo shoot, families and friends pose in the controlled environment of a studio, where they hoist props before skillfully arranged lights and backgrounds.

Clients pick their favorite single image to print on 25 holiday cards that can be mailed to 25 different friends or 1 friend with 25 mantles.
