Heather Deneke of Bomb City Photography creates modern-retro photographic art, snapping shots to commemorate her clients’ finest moments for posterity. Up to two subjects can pose in a location of their choice throughout Amarillo or Canyon, documenting a new engagement, a mid-pregnancy moment of serenity, or the playful vigor of a child or sentient tree. Pin-up shoots are also available, crafting racy images imbued with an old-fashioned sense of class. After the shoot, the proofs move to their online home in a password-protected gallery, where patrons can choose 25–30 images to have edited and printed. A disc bearing high-resolution versions of all the photos from the shoot lets clients print out enough copies to satisfy eager grandparents or wallpaper an unsuspecting enemy's bedroom.
The Photo Store's professional photographers immortalize precious moments with family-centric photography sessions tailored for nearly any milestone in life. Maternity and children's portraiture capture the bond between parent and child with sensitive lighting, and customized senior portraits celebrate a young scholar's accomplishments by portraying them in the letterman's jacket of a successful athlete or the ceremonial suit of armor of a Key Club secretary. Subjects snag fleeting memories using backdrops of local cityscapes or parks, or pose at the studio's stunning garden decorated with a 1950s vintage pickup, sunny country porch, waterfall, and re-creation of a Tuscan villa.
Eschewing corny formulas and time-consuming daguerrotypes, Shot by Angel designs comprehensive senior portrait packages that bring your fresh-faced pre-collegiate's personality to the forefront. Whether you choose to stop by the Wolflin Avenue studio, or meet a photographer at any location within 20 miles of Amarillo, Shot by Angel uses specific scenery and props to showcase the interests of its subjects, rather than force everyone to hold bowling balls on horseback. The number of outfits you peacock in is limited only by the depth of your wardrobe, the duration of the shoot, and how quickly you're able to shimmy out of a Dark Phoenix costume and into a spacesuit. After the last shutter has snapped, Shot by Angel will compile the best of the bunch into a CD of high-resolution images that have been lightly retouched, sparing your teen the embarrassment of realizing they had an entire poppyseed bagel stuck in their teeth the whole time. The four-hour package also nabs you 20 photo graduation announcements, putting a personal spin on a significant event.
As Scott Latham frames clients with photojournalistic flair, Crystal Latham assists subjects in striking flattering, natural poses. Together the duo captures images of weddings, families, high-school seniors, and youngsters during in-studio or on-location photo sessions. Afterward, Scott and Crystal retouch each image and then compile their shots into online galleries that subjects' family and friends can access. For an additional fee, Fantasy Photography's à la carte menu amasses session images in 10"x10", 20-page hardcover albums or on DVDs that score photo slideshows with a choice of up to three songs, which is more efficient than commissioning a professional symphony to score the family barbecue.
