Although they prefer to prevent infestations, the technicians at On The Spot Pest Control are trained to rout embedded insects and mammals while minimizing environmental impact. They follow the principles of Integrated Pest Management, a system that relies on catch-and-release animal-control practices when possible and promotes the reduced use of pesticides. Not content to glaze lawns with chemicals and call it a day, the team also creates barriers that change every season. In summer, it targets flying insects and spiders, and come fall it shores up defenses against rodents and back-to-school shoppers.

Photographer Amy Kilgannon snaps classic portraits against simple white backgrounds, which can be left blank or filled with digital textures and images in the cutting room. She retains authentic colors by keeping her exposure at an even keel, and captures natural smiles by keeping her sessions relaxed and tailoring them to her clients’ interests. During teen photoshoots, clients can nestle their iPhones safely in the studio's docking station, which is guarded by an aggressive hen, as Amy snaps photos while they strike poses in their favorite outfits. She also hosts parties for children with costumes and snacks before sending each guest home with their portrait as a keepsake. For athletes, dancers, and sports teams, Amy crafts portraits and documents events before adorning each shot with team colors and logos or arranging images into a yearbook. When Amy isn't chronicling her clients' life stories, she teaches photography classes that touch on creative and technical topics such as composition and lighting.
People planning weddings often have to choose between elaborately staged poses and the dynamic, candid shots that provide a realistic account of the happy day. The founders of Abacus Wedding Studios ignore that dichotomy, believing there to be a place for both photography styles at important events. Mixing traditional and photojournalistic styles, their photo snappers work with brides, grooms, and their families to make sure everyone gets the shots they dream of. Together, they create a custom wedding-day preparation worksheet that lays out shooting plans with plenty of time for large-scale portraits, intimate snaps, and sequential shots of the first cake slice being smashed in the father of the bride's face.
