  • Rochester Play
    Rochester Play was founded by three Rochester-area parents who recognized the need for a safe space for kids to be active and entertained. Movement and creativity are two things every kid needs, and so kinetic and cerebral acrobatics both play into this large indoor space. Its Northern Michigan?themed playground is full of tunnels, slides, bridges, and crawlspaces, all softly cushioned and kept clean enough to eat alphabet soup off of. In addition to the main play area, Rochester Play also features a smaller play area for toddlers. Visitors of all ages can relax and reenergize at the cafe, which specializes in nutritious food, featuring organic options, whole-fruit smoothies, and locally made breads and baked goods.

  • Arising Images
    When Prem and Cheridy Mukherjee got married in 2001, they didn't know anything about creative wedding photography. Prem's interest in taking photos had been piqued during his travels in Sydney, Australia, but it wasn't until after he had met and married Cheridy that his interest flourished into a real talent. Cheridy soon picked up the camera herself, and together the husband-and-wife team became Arising Images, expertly capturing shots for weddings, engagement announcements, and family-portrait sessions. In 2009, with more experience under their belts, the couple wanted another shot at their wedding album. They once again donned white attire, along with a colorful pair of sneakers, and posed for artistic, playful shots that truly captured their joy?something they strive for in their own photography sessions. Prem, who has shared his expertise at national conventions, passes along his camera-friendly knowledge to budding photographers. He spends the sessions educating students on the functions of their own cameras. Private lessons shower all the attention upon one participant, while a tag-along on a photo shoot or wedding allows students to view Prem and Cheridy in their professional environment.
