This week may bring Michael Kors and Bebe, and next week could feature Ann Taylor and Seven, but no matter when someone stops in Eye of the Beholder Consignments, items from high-profile brands can be found on the shelves. Handbags may carry names such as Prada, Coach, and Juicy Couture, and clothing may hail from Talbots, Chico's, and Coldwater Creek. The shop also stocks shoes, business suits, and maternity wear for expectant mothers and dudes who just want to get closer to their children by dressing as a nanny. A portion of proceeds goes to charities such as the Baltimore Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.

When Brandi Godcharles discovered pole dancing in 2010, she quickly put her writing career on hold to pursue her new passion. Since then, she's been teaching pole dance full-time, helping instill students with self-confidence while teaching them sultry new moves at Rock N Body Pole & Exotic Dance Studio. During classes focused on movement and dance, Brandi and her fellow instructors walk pupils through pole basics?spins and floorwork, plus proper body alignment and grips. Once students have mastered those skills, they can move on to tricks classes, which teach dancers how to safely perform everything from static sitting poses to climbing the entire pole without the help of a stepladder. Besides group classes, the studio welcomes students for private lessons, and groups of friends can schedule a pole-dancing party.
Boudoir photography is for everyone. That's what the photographers at Vixen Photo Studio believe. Their photo sessions leave clients feeling empowered, confident, and sexy. And that's a combination they feel everyone should experience. In their studio equipped with professional lights, backgrounds, and rugs weaved from Fabio's mane, they customize boudoir sessions to each client's desires. Sessions can be arranged for brides or brides-to-be, or ladies just looking to express themselves. Clients can even bring their beau along for the shoot. To produce a vintage look, Vixen photogs also direct sessions reminiscent of 1940s pinup girls. For clients that feel more comfortable at home, all shoots may be set on-location, as well.
A picture is worth a thousand words, an exchange rate frequently used by Caught By a Flash Photography’s shutterbug, Lisie. By manipulating the composition and content of her images, she aims to tell a story whether she is shooting in her studio or on location. Subjects can choose sites where they feel most comfortable, which could range from their homes to the attached garages where they hide from their toaster collections. Lisie’s past work includes family portraits and pictures of riders and their horses. Her vision also extends to specialty shoots, such as senior portraits for soon-to-be high-school graduates, or wedding packages, which include up to eight hours of nuptials coverage.
What began as a children's portrait studio in 1985 has evolved into Fotographia—an independently owned photography studio where veteran shutterbug Bob Grichuhin captures images of the whole family. Grichuhin has earned certification as a master photographer through the Professional Photographers of America. His work has been recognized by institutions such as the Maryland Professional Photographers Association, and he has served as a judge for a print competition held by the Delaware Professional Photographers organization.
In addition to family portraits and wedding photography, Grichuhin memorializes the smiles of high-school seniors. He snaps his way through both in-studio and outdoor sessions, traveling to a variety of locations or using the natural lighting in his own portrait park—a garden more floral and inviting than a welcome mat painted with Monet's Water Lilies.
