While crafting 3-D computer models as an architect, Genesis Inman realized that she enjoyed the artistic aspect of her career far more than the basics of construction. She began to delve into this love of creating beauty during her maternity leave, experimenting with photography and eventually turning that side interest into a full-time endeavor. These days, Inman searches deep within her camera for inspiring images of nature, heartwarming pictures of families, and personal yet professional portraits for businesses. She specializes in fashioning themed compositions for children, snatching up youth's precious, fleeting moments before they're marred by facial hair.
You won't find a patterned or solid-colored studio backdrop in MTK Productions' portfolio. That's because the photographers only schedule on-location shoots around Maple Heights. Their rationale is simple: natural light adds to the spontaneity of their candid portraits, which are typically of kids, expecting mothers, high-school seniors, brides and grooms, or Uncle Big Foot.

Lori Mason can trace her shutterbug streak back to her grandparents, who ran Smith Studios in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. When clients asked for Lester Smith for color portraits, Lester's wife, Annette, would carefully enhance each photo with color by hand. Growing up looking at her grandparents' hand-colored photos, Lori developed an interest in photography that blossomed into a career when she armed herself with a Canon 7D and a photography certification from the University of South Florida. Lori's clients range from expectant mothers to graduating high-school seniors; a particular specialty is newborns as young as 1 week old, whose beaks often haven’t even fallen off yet.
