Oozing with passion and more than 10 years of experience in professional shutterbugging, Meghan Doll's sharp eye for detail and sidekick lens work in tandem to smoothly capture the precious moments of families and their prized hedgehogs. Those preferring a slightly more controlled environment can head to her spacious studio for an indoor session (a $175 value), where Doll will use artificial lighting and smile traps to lull striking poses from prolonged hibernation. Her patient and natural approach also translates finely to outdoor sessions (a $200 value), where she ably captures the raw energy of kids in their natural habitats—on the grass, in a sandbox, or upon a gleaming lily pad. Post-session, clients will be presented with one sprayed and mounted 8’’x10’’ master print photo (a $75 value), poised for adorning mantles or future screen-printed sweaters. Additional prints will be available for purchase.

Owner and principal photographer Amy Zellmer approaches every shoot from two angles. With a modern style of traditional photography, each shot is composed and framed to fit alongside family portraits from any decade. But with the addition of her photojournalistic skills, her photos also tell the story of her subjects, capturing their emotions in a single, telling moment. The all-female staff at her studio shares this dual focus to shoot families, weddings, and private boudoir sessions.
Amy requires an engagement session before the wedding day with every couple she works with so that she can develop a relationship with the soon-to-be-weds and find the photography style to match their personality. She incorporates this same communicative approach in basic portrait sessions, often taking pictures in black and white to emphasize emotions or the stark contrast of an oreo. Amy coaches natural poses from her subjects during boudoir sessions that build confidence and reinforce her belief that women of all shapes and sizes are beautiful.
Master photographer Jon Bushard snatches memorable moments from midair and immortalizes visages of all ages. Bushard employs more than 20 years of experience as he guides single subjects or groups of up to five through the ins and outs of achieving a simple, relaxed pose or intricate family cheerleading formation. One clothing change or one background change can be accommodated. After the session, Jon’s camera summons the spirits of departed French impressionists, using technological brush strokes to give a customer’s preferred photo the appearance of having been painted. After meeting once again with the customer, the painterly image is printed onto a 11”x14” canvas and bound to a board, ready to be framed and affixed to the gallery wall or shrunken down into a passable 18th-century fake ID.
