What began as a children's portrait studio in 1985 has evolved into Fotographia—an independently owned photography studio where veteran shutterbug Bob Grichuhin captures images of the whole family. Grichuhin has earned certification as a master photographer through the Professional Photographers of America. His work has been recognized by institutions such as the Maryland Professional Photographers Association, and he has served as a judge for a print competition held by the Delaware Professional Photographers organization.
In addition to family portraits and wedding photography, Grichuhin memorializes the smiles of high-school seniors. He snaps his way through both in-studio and outdoor sessions, traveling to a variety of locations or using the natural lighting in his own portrait park—a garden more floral and inviting than a welcome mat painted with Monet's Water Lilies.
The seasoned photographer at E.Y.E. Imagery Studios doesn't shoot weddings, events, or anything on-location. However, this doesn't mean that she isn't versatile; the modern studio simply provides all the space she needs. In a shooting area brimming with eclectic furniture, backgrounds, and colorful props, the photographer poses clients ranging from newborns and children to families and engaged couples. She also directs more specialized sessions, including boudoir and pin-up shoots, with added touches such as titillating costumes. Whatever the session, each client will receive links to high-resolution downloads, each painstakingly retouched by the photographer.
A picture is worth a thousand words, an exchange rate frequently used by Caught By a Flash Photography’s shutterbug, Lisie. By manipulating the composition and content of her images, she aims to tell a story whether she is shooting in her studio or on location. Subjects can choose sites where they feel most comfortable, which could range from their homes to the attached garages where they hide from their toaster collections. Lisie’s past work includes family portraits and pictures of riders and their horses. Her vision also extends to specialty shoots, such as senior portraits for soon-to-be high-school graduates, or wedding packages, which include up to eight hours of nuptials coverage.
The photographers at Clapp Studios categorize their snapshots into two themes: LoveStyle and LifeStyle. LoveStyle shoots capture couples at the height of their romance, flashing the camera as lovebirds get engaged, take their vows, or carve their initials into the side of a police cruiser. Documenting the next stages of couples’ relationships, LifeStyle photos tell the stories of growing families with elegant, tasteful shots of expectant mothers, sleepy-eyed newborns, and grinning children. Clapp Studios also helps keep romance alive with flirtatious boudoir photo shoots, which gussy up subjects beforehand with makeovers from a makeup artist.
At Picfive Photography, professional photographer Milton Lawrence Jr. immortalizes loved ones with glossy photo prints and digital images. Lawrence draws families together for portraits, commemorates graduating seniors with cap-and-gown shots, and captures sports history when brides throw game-ending interceptions in wedding bouquet tosses.
Graduations, engagements, weddings, and senior proms––these events all happen regardless of the presence of a photographer, but they're made better by one. The photographers at FotographyWorx Studios know this, which is why they arrive at memorable occasions to capture fleeting moments such as a sweet glance between newlyweds or the pinning of a boutonniere onto a donkey. They also help savor special life events by snapping maternity and family portraits inside their welcoming studio or at clients' homes.
