An ultramodern white loveseat sits framed by a wall decked in vinyl records and a zebra-print rug. There, a figure strikes an edgy pose. Though it might sound like a scene from a music executive's metropolitan loft at the height of the Swinging Sixties, the action plays out far closer to home. At Revolution Studios, the photo enterprise owned and operated by the husband-and-wife duo of Dan and Somer Hadley, glamour is only a costume change away. During their photography shoots, they pair individuals and couples with the scenery and inspiration to bring their inner wild things to life. Dan and Somer encourage their clients to express themselves through personal props and wardrobe choices. In addition to devising personal styles, clients can also consult with on-site hair and makeup experts.
Tina Loebach takes pride in the pictures she takes, but she finds even more satisfaction in the time she spends with her clients.

Tabitha encourages movement and playfulness in her subjects as she captures them interacting with their indoor or outdoor environment.

Professional editing and printing options make for impeccable presentation.
From her years spent in the U.S. Army to the harrowing birth of her daughter, many life-changing events have left an indelible mark on the way Amber Fite views time. As a professional, licensed photographer, Amber works tirelessly to stop time in its tracks, celebrating milestones and memories on digital film before they’re gone. While the camera is Amber’s medium, natural light is her muse, and she moves seamlessly from outdoor landscape to landscape, snapping natural poses between mother and child, man and wife, and beagle and bacon. Amber’s easygoing manner helps subjects feel at ease during the shoot, while her regular practice of hand-delivering prints to local clients after the shoot reinforces her commitment to her clients and her refusal to play into the postal service’s propaganda.
In Kim Crenshaw Photography’s onsite garden, a swing hangs from a jasmine-wreathed arbor, frog-inhabited lily pads carpet a pond, and a 1946 Chevrolet Stylemaster waits for models to lean against its fenders. The garden abuts the old farmhouse that houses Crenshaw’s equally scenic studio, with a wall of antique stained-glass panels and a design that captures streams of sunlight throughout the day. Crenshaw devoted her first decade behind the camera to natural-light photography, and custom renovated her current studio-garden complex to ensure she could still practice her specialty.
Now a 25-year veteran of the photography scene, Crenshaw continues to draw on the fundamentals she learned when earning her BFA in graphic design and photography. This fine-arts background deters her from trendy shots of subjects spelling out the day's headlines in semaphore signals; instead, she strives to capture timeless beauty in her portraits of families, kids, and bridal parties. Subjects can discuss options and expectations with Crenshaw during free preshoot consultations, and select their favorite shots during postshoot slideshow viewings. The studio’s frame shop can border prints—or painted portraits modeled after prints—in a diverse array of frames.
