Ronnie Owings began his photographic career when Robert Kennedy hired him to snap candid photos at family parties. His ability to turn fleeting moments into professional, elegant images has led to a flourishing career, and his work has appeared in magazines including Better Homes & Gardens, Art & Antiques, and Elegant Bride.
Ronnie's reassuring demeanor relaxes subjects into natural poses— whether he's handing a toddler a favorite toy instead of a boring prop, or calming a yapping dog with a bone that tastes like a mailman's slacks. The resulting prints of families, kids, high-school seniors, or beloved pets take on an almost dream-like state, enhanced by digital effects such as text or oil painting. Shoots take place at his studio, which was built in 1899. Antique furniture and props still dot the interior, as do rustic fireplaces and a front porch that lends a visual glimpse of a more relaxing era. Outdoor paths wind through groves of waterfalls and azaleas, all leading to a barn that houses a living room and library, ideal for family portraits.
Enduring attention spans are rendered unnecessary at Fun Galaxy, where the staff oversees ample entertainment options in one huge facility. While smaller kids and toddlers tackle a multi-level playground packed with soft obstacles, their older siblings take a turn at roller-skating or exploring the indoor skate. A mechanical bull and more than 30 arcade games round out the attractions, which are also available for birthday-party packages.

The husband-and-wife team behind SMUDGED Prntz Photography, Chris and Re’Nauta Bell, use complementary approaches when composing their color-saturated portraits. Re'Nauta draws on her own modeling experience to style and dress subjects, as well as to help them strike flattering poses. Also a former model, Chris strives to turn each photo shoot into a party—a skill he mastered while snapping shots of celebrities after dark, when their skin begins to glow.
A peek inside Chris and Re’Nauta's portfolio reveals avant-garde makeup, sequins and metal accents that mirror a Latin carnivale aesthetic, as well as classic black-and-white photos with strategic pops of color. The duo lends a digital edge to conceptual portraits with otherworldly effects and composes traditional shots to mark life's milestones.
The first year of life holds so many milestones: the first step, the first Christmas, the first time baby realizes “coo” is the word for everything. As the parents of three young children, photography team James (a self-taught photographer) and Michelle Hill (a model and actress) understand that well. That’s why the Hills offer their Bebe Collection photography packages, which document Baby’s first year with photo shoots at three to four months, at eight months, and at one year. Each shoot captures a different aspect of infancy, from the debut of teensy feet and toes to the discovery of crawling.
The Bebe Collection exemplifies what James and Michelle do best: capture newborns, children, and maternity in evocative and personal photo shoots. For family portraits, James stays behind the camera and Michelle is in charge of styling as shoots unfold at the studio, at the client’s home, or at a location of the client’s choice, be it a local park or a place that is special to the family.
