Mark Landis Photography's experienced team of shutterbugs capture flattering portraits in a full-service studio flanked by gardens and a rushing waterfall. Camera wielders usher in guests for 15-minute headshot sessions, guiding subjects’ heads and shoulders through a range of complementary poses. After the photo session, a basic facial retouching clears up one image of your choice, removing bunny ears and preparing the photo for public consumption. The retouched photo makes its way to clients via email or CD in JPEG form along with reproduction rights, allowing subjects to use their shot for promotional use or to forge a flashier-looking passport.

The computer-savvy artists at Expansive Art go beyond the camera lens, incorporating specialized software and high-tech equipment to tell the unique story of a person or family. The team at the photography studio specializes in creating photographic studies: a planned series of poses designed to elicit the subject's true character. A designer chooses the lighting and props, and a director oversees the entire process, guiding the photographer and subject through the expressive poses. Finally, a digital artist enhances the sequential shots with advanced software, creating special effects or textual additions. The crew frequently uses greenscreens during playful senior-photo shoots that cast the impending graduates as ninjas, vampires, or carbon copies of their parents, who they will someday become. The company's separate, 8,000-square-foot show room displays a variety of decorative art, including reusable "wall tattoos" and photos backlit with LED displays. Guests can admire the large, colorful pieces while sipping a coffee at the in-house café.
Since opening her graphic-design studio in 2011, photographer Ann Marie Nipp has been using her Cannon DSLR to capture casual compositions unrestrained by formal convention, focusing instead on the easy smiles that result from her patient, ebullient personality. Her portfolio of work reveals joyous newlyweds, confident professionals, and relaxed families, but gives special celebration to children, who beam exuberantly as they play in front of her lens. Though occasionally contracted for work in the fourth-dimension, Nipp primarily shoots on-location throughout Lexington, carrying her portable studio to places that hold special meaning to her clients. Her eye for design works in tandem with her passion for photography, allowing her to easily edit photos and turn them into everything from business logos and fliers to greeting cards of her own creation.
Erica Lee feels photography is one of the best means of time travel. She loves capturing instances and emotions and preserving them for future generations. To craft the most striking images, she relies on her eight years of photography experience as well as her background in painting and interior design. That combination results in photo shoots that focus on light, color, and texture for dramatic results. She brings that holistic approach to each shoot, including sessions for families, moms-to-be, and high school seniors. Classy boudoir and fashion shoots are available, as well.
