For Professional Photographers of America member Amy Gillespie, snapping pictures is a full-time passion that revolves around three words: live, laugh, and love. Her motto celebrates the positives in life, and her career as a photographer memorializes them in print. Amy’s affable attitude tends to rub off on her subjects who grin in earnest during family, infant, and pet photo shoots. She also ups the risqué factor with pinup and boudoir shots taken on-location. Once the shutter stops snapping, Amy shows proofs to her clients, who select favorites to be digitized or printed and faxed to adoring fans.
The "Baby I'm a Star" mini-package makes a sexy, sensational gift for a partner, capturing tasteful, alluring images in a playful, no-nudity way. Michael Sackett personally conducts each session, and will shoot clients in a variety of tasteful postures and poses during the 45-minute session. Clients are allowed two outfit changes during the session—if you opt for the studio setting, don't forget to bring along your most enticing, enthralling, and least pant-suity attire. After the pinup freeze framing, clients will receive a disc with five high-res, fully edited, retouched, and copyright-released images of their choice, as well as two 8x10 prints from the edited files.
Cell It Like New finds the silver linings in malfunctioning handhelds with its quick and efficient electronic repair services. Highly trained technicians can replace a missing screw, fix a broken component, or tackle more complicated tasks such as water damage or screen breakage. Clients may also solicit Cell's jailbreak services to exonerate iPhones wrongfully accused of prank calling the IRS.
The photographers at My Fantasy Portrait capture much more than a moment in time—they ensnare the elusive fairy. Children dress the part in this enchanted fairy experience by doning an array of costumes and exploring an enchanted forrest set while photographers capture ethereal moments on film. The results are photos that evoke enchanted forests, with subjects as their queens. After the shoot, photographers will digitally enhance portraits.
When the two shutterbugs at The Macks Photography claim they have collaborated on creative, imaginative projects together for their whole lives, they aren't exaggerating. In addition to 10 years of photography and retouching experience, the brother-and-sister duo draws on a lifetime of sibling communication during photo shoots.
The Macks blend photojournalistic and artistic styles and strive to capture candid moments during in-home and on-location shoots of engaged couples, families, and high-school seniors. They also attempt to customize the photo shoots to fit each client’s personality. In fact, before every wedding, they have an in-depth consultation with couples to plan artistic, personality-capturing shots and to determine how they look smeared in cake.
