Welcoming a new child. Graduating from high school. Walking down the isle. Husband and wife Eric and Lynda Kelley harness more than 10 years of photography expertise as they capture these lifetime events. Their eye-level and high-angle shots capture posed subjects in color and black and white, highlighting the joy of a toddler as he plays with toys against a studio backdrop, or the bliss of an expectant couple silhouetted against an orange sunset.
At weddings, the duo take pictures from the moment the bride and groom leave for the aisle all the way to the reception, never stopping until newlyweds are satisfied with the coverage or everybody realizes the maid of honor has eloped with the cake. Afterward, Eric and Lynda grant couples full printing rights, assemble every picture onto a disc, and host wedding day images in an online gallery for 270 days.

Spring-Green Lawn Care's vegetation experts serve more than 7,500 neighborhood communities, continuing a 35-year tradition of meticulous landscaping. With the preferred program, green-thumbed technicians assess lawns according to the local climate, growing conditions, and potential for spontaneous cartwheel contests. After the consultation, Spring-Green's team applies a custom-concocted serum of fertilizer and weed control, transforming boring yards into Neverlands of luxurious verdure and eerily ageless children. In addition to inspiring grass growth and warding off weeds, Spring-Green’s landscapers strengthen yards from the ground up with core aeration services. They puncture lawns by removing small plugs of soil and excess thatch, providing grass roots with more air and nutrients. Overseeding treatments take advantage of maximum oxygenation, blanketing lawns with fresh blends of turf grass seeds at the most optimal time. These sod kernels have been shown to have a higher resistance to diseases, a greater ability to withstand drought, and diminished odds of premature balding.
