At Headshots by Rachael & Jo, hairstylist Rachael Joy and photographer Joanne Garcia work together to produce professional photos for working actors, individuals, and families during fun and creative photo shoots. Rachael enhances subjects’ features with artful makeup, and utilizes hairstyling techniques honed during her continuing education to create flattering hairdos. Photographer Joanne Garcia steps in next, snapping flattering shots of her subjects in sunlit settings, which she tailors to her client's personal aesthetics and fear of trees or flowers detailed in pre-shoot consultations.
Romeo and Kimberly Rider, the husband-and-wife team behind Skyrider Photography, shoot the vast majority of their photos using natural light. Whether outdoors or in their studio, the duo harnesses the sun's natural power to create images for everything from advertisements to vintage art. But with the rise of social media and the decreasing popularity of sculpted busts, much of the Riders' work now centers on headshot photography. They work with clients to select wardrobe pieces that blend color and texture, crafting images that will showcase personality to casting agents, bolster a website's "about me" section, or delight estranged third-grade classmates on Facebook.

Tiana Taylor got her start photographing the happy tears and raw emotion of military members reuniting with their families. From this heartfelt beginning, her business has grown to encompass everything from engagements and weddings to headshots and boudoir portraits. These photo sessions take place in-studio or on-location and can produce high-resolution images and edited photos.
The photographers of the three studios that make up The Boudoir Cafe pride themselves on helping their female subjects own their womanhood through sultry, flattering photographs. But it's not just the subjects who've been impressed—the team's photography has earned them features in Shutterbug and Nikon World. From tasteful lingerie shots to adventurous scenes awash in stilettos and leather, the photographers use professional hair and makeup artistry, specialized lighting, and stylized poses to make every woman on their set feel like a supermodel. The crew also harnesses that fashion finesse to meticulously document opulent weddings from the engagement to the ceremony to the celebratory pit stop at the nearest bird bath.
