Mary Helen Johnston of M&J Photography strives to capture all aspects of her subjects’ personalities, nabbing senior portraits, wedding snapshots, family profiles, and sports-team photos. Before shoots, the photographer guides clients through a complimentary consultation over the phone or in the studio, during which models-to-be can plot hair, makeup, and cravat placement. Helen's photo shoots typically last from 30 to 60 minutes, and outdoor shoots usually take place two hours before sunset, when natural light is at its most flattering. M&J Photography can also take motion pictures with an array of videography services that capture images and emotional tenor alike, thereby creating a keepsake more potent than cave hieroglyphics depicting a prehistoric wedding reception.
The photographers at Bright Eyes Photo are skilled in capturing a variety of photos whether candid engagement shots, posed family portraits, or pet snapshots. After the shoots, the photographers carefully edit and retouch their shots before delivering frame-ready prints from their professional lab.
Glamour Shots specializes in complete photography sessions in which subjects receive makeovers and in-depth consultations on their shoots to help their best face to shine in front of the camera. Upon arriving at the studio, subjects undergo hairstyling and an airbrush makeup application before donning a series of their own outfits during boudoir or traditional photo shoots. Image designers can retouch snapshots afterward, and client favorites can shine in lab-produced prints or on digital CDs.

A quick glance between newlyweds or a sleeping baby's peaceful expression. These moments are often missed or quickly forgotten. But not when Brenda Miles is nearby. The photographer cements such moments in pictures that end up perched on mantels and hanging from rearview mirrors. Brenda?s passion for posed and candid photos is evident as she follows brides on their wedding day and photographs expectant mothers, newborns, and families. And when not clicking away at a photo shoot, Brenda happily teaches camera newbies how to photograph like a pro. During a three-hour class, students learn all the bells and whistles on their own camera as well as how to use different sources of light to create better pictures.
Old movies are full of treasured memories, and in some cases, literal treasure. When 90-year old Evelyn Weiner sent in her 16-millimeter film canister to YesVideo for digital conversion, a staff member discovered $3,100 in cash in the canister. The company quickly alerted Ms. Weiner of the bounty, which her late husband had stored away and forgotten. While YesVideo cannot promise such a dramatic financial return on investments, over one million families, along with major retailers such as Costco, Target, and Walmart have trusted YesVideo technicians to unearth and modernize priceless memories through mail-in conversion services. Films receive a digitized update as the team transforms VHS tapes and film reels before they deteriorate. Personalized DVDs with convenient chapter divisions last longer than VHS tapes and make it OK to finally feed the VCR peanut butter. Online galleries of the content can be shared through Facebook, Twitter, and other social-media sites.
