Mary Helen Johnston of M&J Photography strives to capture all aspects of her subjects’ personalities, nabbing senior portraits, wedding snapshots, family profiles, and sports-team photos. Before shoots, the photographer guides clients through a complimentary consultation over the phone or in the studio, during which models-to-be can plot hair, makeup, and cravat placement. Helen's photo shoots typically last from 30 to 60 minutes, and outdoor shoots usually take place two hours before sunset, when natural light is at its most flattering. M&J Photography can also take motion pictures with an array of videography services that capture images and emotional tenor alike, thereby creating a keepsake more potent than cave hieroglyphics depicting a prehistoric wedding reception.
Glamour Shots specializes in complete photography sessions in which subjects receive makeovers and in-depth consultations on their shoots to help their best face to shine in front of the camera. Upon arriving at the studio, subjects undergo hairstyling and an airbrush makeup application before donning a series of their own outfits during boudoir or traditional photo shoots. Image designers can retouch snapshots afterward, and client favorites can shine in lab-produced prints or on digital CDs.
