The first time Christie Mumm saw her newborn daughter's face, she knew nothing would ever be the same. She couldn't have anticipated, though, how much her love for her own husband and child would spill over into her work, and how it would, in turn, fuel the growth of her photography. From its beginnings as a part-time venture based out of Mumm's home in 2001, JLM Creative Photography has grown to fill an elegant downtown studio whose pale blue walls are filled with images of the candid smiles she has captured. As a mother, Mumm is keenly aware of how quickly children grow, change, and shape shift into wererabbits, and she's made it her mission to help other couples and families memorialize their fleeting, joy-filled moments.
Mumm and her team specialize in fine-art lifestyle portraiture and wedding photography. Her penchant for natural-light work has led her to many picturesque destinations, including a Lake Tahoe engagement shoot and a vintage-inspired wedding shoot on a lush 13-acre Nevada City estate; both were featured on the wedding-planning website On the Go Bride. Mumm has also written a book—Family Photography—which emphasizes the importance of relationships in the digital-photography business.
The founder of Baby Boot Camp Sparks, Kristen Horler, is a nationally certified fitness instructor whose experience honing pre- and postpartum physiques earned her a spot on ePregnancy magazine's expert panel. Strollfit classes blend cardio drills with a dash of Pilates and yoga and a two-person helping of abdominal exercise to help hasten weight loss. Resistance tubes, strollers, and bundles of joy act as strength-training accouterments, helping mothers develop swift reflexes for dodging spit-up and premature lines of questioning from babies about the origins of peanut butter. Mothers shed calories while shaping up and mingling with their children, as well as meeting other moms. For maternal ovens still baking buns, the class helps strengthen muscles in preparation for labor. Fitness regimens follow guidelines set by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and are safe for life givers of all fitness levels.

The highly trained medical staff of Aesthetics Medical Training & Spa levels out crinkled brows to produce a smooth, youthful appearance with FDA-approved Botox. With a series of miniscule injections, Aesthetics Medical Training & Spa's specialist freezes the muscles that trigger fine lines, wrinkles, and bulging forehead biceps. The spa's licensed doctors and registered nurses also use the facility to teach other professionals the art and science of aesthetic procedures, so patients can relax in the adept care of a teacher's teacher. Botox treatments require no downtime and results last for up to four months, or about the amount of time it takes to annihilate an everlasting gobstopper.
Fascinating Rhythm's extensively trained dance teachers and former dancers corral students of all ages and skill levels into groups of 25 to 30 and then clear the cobwebs from unused toes with a full spectrum of classes. Two-year-olds in the Be-Bop Ballet Babies class bundle their energy into pliés, tendus, hopping, turning, and respectfully debating the superiority of Petipa's Don Quixote adaptation, all to the accompaniment of a spritely soundtrack. Flocks of less little ones (ages 3–5 and 6–9) migrate toward Happy Feet classes to dip toes into the foundation steps of ballet, jazz, and tap. So You Think You Can Dance spices up gyrating jives with hip-hop, hard- and soft-shoe Irish, and modern dance techniques for ages 6–13, and Reno Glee pipes in pop and rock vocal training on top of choreography, similar to the hit TV series The Deadliest Catch. Fascinating Rhythm also tailors classes to special-needs dancers, which focus on coordination and basic skills such as skipping, hopping, leaping, and balancing.
