Chris Shaber deals in reality, not perfection. His philosophy—which incorporates maxims such as "Be brave, be daring, be goofy" and "Comfy socks are a must"—is strong enough to accept that there are flaws everywhere you look. After all, as Chris has learned, even "perfect" diamonds have tiny, tiny blemishes. Using a chroma key setup, Chris photographs subjects in front of a green screen, digitally replacing the backdrop with personalized images—crayons, ephemeral swirls of smoke, or an arrangement of evil eyes, for example. He can be found outside the studio, too, chronicling weddings or catching athletes as they bounce across the field. When he isn't photographing people and animals, Chris turns his lens on nature to record its grandeur on film.

The photography of Sexy Beautiful Me isn't just about making women beautiful in the eyes of an observer; it's about making them beautiful in their own eyes as well. From her 1,500-square-foot studio within Negroni Studios, photographer Mya Negroni helps women of all ages and sizes realize their inherent beauty with casual, glamour, and boudoir photography sessions infused with a vintage Hollywood charm. Subjects first raid the makeup room to doll up their own hair and faces or take advantage of professional cosmetic services, then work with the photographer to determine the setups and backgrounds they'd prefer for their shoot. Whether they love or hate the camera, Mya exercises her years of experience and attention-grabbing squeak toys to keep her subjects comfortable and coach them on how to strike the pose that will get the most beautiful result.
Pearls & Pumps' photographer, Britt, and hair and makeup specialist, Jenna, strive to set subjects at ease as they snap tasteful, intimate boudoir photos. Before each photo package, a professional readies each subject for the camera’s gaze by styling her hair and painting her visage with makeup. Custom printing services beautifully display sensual snapshots within shadow boxes, on stretched canvases, or over local billboards. Pearls & Pumps has also partnered with Diva Dolls to host boudoir parties, during which instructors teach pole, chair, or burlesque dancing as photographers snap alluring images.
Though he started his career as a photo editor, Don Hector quickly realized that his calling was behind the lens. He creatively conceptualizes shots in his 2,500-square-foot studio, expertly framing model portfolio photos, pageant headshots, and boudoir shots to capture the subject's personality as much as their unique features. Traditional or inventive in style, he strives to bring out his subjects' true colors in family portraits, whether the shoots take place in his studio against an elegant background or on-location at a beloved park or quicksand pit.
