Professionally operated by licensed California photographer Lindsey Kimball, who specializes in digital editing and light-handed retouching, Left Coast Design Studio offers groups a one-hour, high-quality photo session (up to a $150 value) at the location of their choice with up to four people (a $15 fee applies to each additional person). Photographees can create their own personal photo-session theme and pose for 60 minutes as Lindsey rips reflected light beams out of the air. Families can commemorate a new baby, or newly engaged couples can celebrate the traditional way by setting their photos in the nearest post office. Once the session is complete, choose five high-quality digital images with printing rights (a $75 value) or five 5"x7" prints (a $60 value), with the option to purchase additional prints at 15% off.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
Cinematic is a good word to describe C&B Photography's style. They capture the drama in every moment through snapping objects at high and low angles. This technique adds depth and dimension to images and allows the viewer to see the subject in a unique way. A penchant for panorama also adds to the whimsy, allowing natural or architectural scenes to serve as picturesque backdrops. No matter the setting, C&B Photography captures memorable images during portrait sessions for families, models, and couples. C&B Photography also provides engagement and wedding photography.
Seasoned shutterbug Kevin Fahey utilizes his 38 years of experience and well-trained eye for artistic detail to capture subjects’ uniqueness with pleasing color combos, flattering light manipulation, and backdrops consisting of hyper-enlarged fingerprints. Each family flash session ($90) includes one outfit and one location, with a choice between the modern studio setting and the beautiful surrounding gardens. Fahey works closely with subjects to let individual personalities shine through, immortalizing postmarital bliss and sibling rivalries over who got top bunk and who had to sleep in the garage. After portraits have been snapped and edited, Fahey Photography ensures memory survival with a durable lacquer finishing on the 11”x14” prints, as well as a texture application and art-board mounting.

Tara Jones takes a picture every day, whether she’s working or not. This passion for aesthetic excellence landed her at the Brooks Institute, and her restless ambition led her to open Flare Productions a year before graduating. In the decade since, Tara has composed stunning shots of the Californian landscape, documented countless weddings, and captured the smiles of subjects lit by both natural light or the natural shine of teeth that’ve mistakenly gnawed on glow sticks.
Tara shares her infectious enthusiasm with the clients she shoots and the students she teaches. During introductory workshops, she elegantly explains how to manipulate manual camera settings to enhance the story woven into every still image. She also takes time to answer any questions that students may have in regard to printing or eating photos.
