After receiving her degree in photography and graphic design, Kelly Powell traveled the world in search of frank, heartfelt images—a journey that took her from historic Italian villages to the war-torn plains of Africa. The owner and head photographer of Elements Studio Photography channels these experiences into her camera work, which blends candid shots with traditional portraits and oversized thought bubbles to convey the true emotions of the day. She and fellow shutterbug Rainey Rinaldi specialize in boudoir, portrait, and event photography, with a particular passion for unconventional weddings.

A newborn being cradled in his parents? hands. A newly engaged couple nuzzling together. A family wrestling a Burmese python for their most recent family portrait. These are the moments that the photographers at Abundant Moments Photography strive to capture during their in-studio and on-location photo shoots. Less concerned with poses and more concerned with spontaneous actions, they keep their cameras focused on babies, seniors, families, and brides and grooms. Outdoor photos can be shot on the scenic studio grounds, which feature a waterfall, wildflower field, and a stream. The resulting photos can be shared online, printed, arranged into a collage, or superimposed on accessories such as bags and jewelry.
A beaming, tutu-clad youngster poses by a large number 2, commemorating her new age. A couple, nearly newlywed, strolls through a sepia-tinged park holding hands. A brindled puppy with floppy ears capers across a red wooden wagon. These are just a few of the shots that the photographers at Worth A 1000 Words Studio have captured during their tenure at the memory emporium. Both in-studio and on-location shoots cover the gamut of photogenic opportunities, from senior portraits to weddings to adorable pictures of babies disguised as bunnies or even smaller babies.
Laura Jacobs, the woman behind the lens at Riddle Photo, has an appreciation for the small things in life. That appreciation shows through in her photographic pieces of art. She loves to capture the little joys that result in bright, colorful images: a sleeping baby outfitted in a headband with a single flower that is as big as her head, a newly married couple wearing matching ear-to-ear grins, or a family wearing matching outfits to pose for their holiday card—Laura can document it all. At the age of 15 she began to delve into photography, and she has parlayed her lifelong passion into a career, using her lens to bend the colors of the world into memorable images.
