Betty Stuart always had a talent for documentation. After graduating from Northwestern University's prestigious Medill School of Journalism in 1940, Stuart applied her shrewd journalistic eye to the field of photography. As she took on more professional jobs, she honed her skills behind the lens and learned how to blend into the background of weddings and other events so as not to interfere with candid moments.

Before long, Stuart joined forces with her husband, John Boyd Rodgers, to found Stuart-Rodgers Photography. The nascent company soon added corporate, commercial, and school photography to its list of services and, due to high demand for the couple’s innovative journalistic approach, expanded to three locations throughout Chicagoland. Today, Stuart-Rodgers's team of professional photographers maintains elements of Stuart’s original photographic vision in every shot, including her knack for capturing angles that draw attention away from subjects’ unflattering tentacles.

The first Ebert Studio opened almost 100 years ago on Chicago's west side. Since then, four successive generations have preserved memories for countless families in studios that now reside in Oak Park and Hinsdale. At the helm today is Jeff Ebert, the great-grandson of the studio's founder. Jeff makes a very small distinction to give you the big picture—"It's not so much that it's photography," he says, "but it's photographing people."

Making people feel comfortable and look better is just one part of his job. The next part is to create "a piece like a painting that can be hung above a mantle and somebody can be proud of for years and years to come." As the latest in a line of artists stretching back to 1915, Jeff does that well, harnessing the power of passed time and using it to build a portfolio that showcases families, weddings, animals, and individuals. Some of his notable subjects have included Cardinal Francis George, Walter Payton, and film director Christopher Columbus, known for his historical documentary of babysitting, Home Alone.

Between March 24 and April 9, the studio will be home to a pack of disarmingly lovable bunnies to help accentuate springtime pictures, intensify the adorability of toddler photos, and give carrot portraiture a gritty sense of danger.

Marc Hauser’s photographic expertise started as a 13-year-old freshman at New Trier High School, when the Wilmette native launched his boyhood hobby into adulthood with an apprenticeship under Playboy-contributing photographer Stan Malinowski. When one of the magazine's art directors visited Stan's studio, he noticed Marc's prints on the table and turned to Stan and asked, "Would your assistant like to go to California next week and shoot Carly Simon?" From there, notable assignments began to sprout, including John Mellencamp in a muddy field for his cover of Scarecrow, Led Zeppelin in a construction site in London, and the Doobie Brothers watching Amish people cross a field in front of McDonalds.

Marc's studio now practices a style of portraiture called "Hauser-Style", in which subjects in their natural state—such as shooting family members while they're distracted and talking to each other. The photographers often go to extreme lengths to capture a unique photograph, such as speaking in funny voices to amuse kids, and barking to get dogs' attention. Subjects can dress up and use props from the collection, such as stuffed elephants or loaves of bread. Above all else, the studio makes sure their clients feel comfortable so they can focus on getting the right shots.

After forging this connection, the unique and striking images captured use simple parameters: shooting in black and white, with one light or natural light, or around a table in his studio. This approach to portraiture has earned Marc more than 100 awards, including Clios for advertising and a Grammy, as well as the public's fascination—a billboard of his portrait of Dennis Rodman stopped traffic on the Kennedy Expressway.
