Hannah Reyes Photography always had a creative streak in her, but the birth of her son inspired her to turn her to take more photographs—and eventually pursue it as a career. Now she chronicles memories and milestones outside for other families and children, using natural light to give crisp color to her portraits. As she meanders through fields and trees with her clients, she usually gets things started with a few suggestions on poses, but ultimately she aims to capture all the candid smiles in between. She also has a penchant for including the sun in her photos for the beautiful effects it creates as it tries to hide from the camera.
Quality photos capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings much more efficiently then papier-mâché sculptures. At studiolano, photographer April Catalano utilizes her many years of experience to photograph subjects with a microscopic attention to detail. During a one-hour session at studiolano’s fully equipped studio, April will rattle off 50–75 shots of multiple poses with the speed and precision of a camera-fitted, laser-guided cheetah. Striking images are artfully captured with an uncommon eye to provide game-changing glimpses of the subject’s pleasant disposition that can’t be replicated with an emoticon-riddled letter of recommendation. After the photo shoot, customers place their package order from the comfort of their plush, indoor hammocks with online proof viewing and ordering.
