Creative Photography by Maya's staff of professional shutterbugs will happily accommodate families, children, families of children, pets, and triumphantly posed statues during the in-studio photo session. The fully equipped studio provides several backgrounds from which to choose. The classic white can be used for a quick passport photo before the entire fam poses for a heartwarming family scene around the Christmas tree in the Christmas Morning backdrop. Likewise, graduates, high-school seniors, newlyweds, and soonlyweds can beam sunnily before a Garden View, Perfect Sky, or slightly less popular Ragnarök backdrop. There are even huge plastic crayons and other foreground props for your giant pet scorpion to wave around as the cameras flash. After your session, you'll receive a DVD containing full-resolution versions of all photos and a photo-release form enabling you to print, publish, and share them.

Professional photographer James Cucinotta snaps pictures with a photojournalistic style and creative techniques to transform life’s ephemeral moments into enduring art. During a session, families of up to six, mothers-to-be, babies, and humans who have woken up as bugs relax under Cucinotta's friendly manner to expose long-dormant smiles in the natural light of the great outdoors or the indoor arena of a professional studio. Customers can follow up their session by fawning over images online and perfecting flaws, such as animal transmutations and phantom second heads, through the magic of Cucinotta Images' digital retouching. The favored photo will then materialize as a family of one 8"x10" and twin 5"x7" doppelganger prints.

A man lies tangled in a shower curtain, lifeless, with blood spattered everywhere; "kill your boyfriend" was the theme of this shoot, conducted by photographer Nikki Riley for one of her clients who'd recently parted ways with her latest beau. Nikki's willingness to transcend boundaries, paired with her creative flair, has sent her to New York City and Atlanta to shoot risqu? and editorial-style fashion spreads and helped her earn a nomination for PHL17's Philly's Hot List of Best Photographers 2011. Raised as a "John Lennon kid" by a photographer mother, her inherited desire to snap shots came to fruition soon after graduating college, when she traded her 9?5 desk job for a career in photography. Nikon D700 in tow, Nikki spends her days at the 1,700-square-foot studio she co-owns, The Hive 215, which features high ceilings, loft windows, vintage furnishings, and a beauty bar where specialists prep clients' hair and makeup.
Though Nikki's fashion and portrait shoots favor bold colors and clean, magazine-quality finishes, her intimate boudoir shoots explore both high and low angles and toy with exposure?in every sense of the word. Taken from the most flattering angles for each body type, shots of lingerie-clad legs and torsos sway from high-contrast black and white to elegantly washed-out color frames lit softly from behind like an angel auditioning for the cover of Maxim. Nikki caters these shoots to the desires and comfort level of each client, letting imaginations run wild with coy pinup poses or showcasing epidermises for keepsake shots of clients in any state of undress.
