For more than 20 years, the experienced photographers of KHP Studios have snapped award-winning photos for both individual and corporate clients, such as Pepsi, Tide, and Crest. Join these ranks with the headshot portrait session, which begins with professional makeup and styling steadily applied by a KHP staff member to ensure each client puts his or her best face forward and keeps his or her backup face in their pocket. Subjects then plant feet firmly in the center of KHP's spacious studio, posing and smiling for 50–100 photos amid the location's hand-painted backdrops. Post-session, the newly snapped select a favorite frame, which the KHP photographers will then minimally retouch and send back to the customer in the form of either one 8"x10" print, two 5"x7" prints, or one tattooed goat.

What makes your business stand out?
All of our photo shoots are on location. We can come right to your home or meet at a favorite spot. When people are in their own environment, they tend to be more comfortable which makes for a much more successful photo shoot.
What inspired you to start this business?
Photography has been a family business for me. My grandfather and grandmother began their portrait photography business in Hudson, NY over 60 years ago. My uncle took over the business when my grandparents passed and made it his life work, which he continues even today. I decided to follow in my family's path, went to school for photography, did my graduate studies in art education, and began my own photography business.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
Capturing memories for people. It is a great feeling to produce keepsakes for people of special events, special people in their lives, and the fun times that they had.
Clean White Photography’s shutterbugs offer an array of mobile-photography services. They hunt natural smiles in their clients’ native climes, whether at home, in the office, or at a favorite park. Photographers collect their prey digitally, retouching the shots back at their home base before delivering a disc of digital images that are ready for the printer.

As a kid, Tanya Paul would while away the hours roaming with her mother’s 35mm camera, snapping off shot after shot until multiple rolls filled up. Today, she is still capturing memorable images with the same passion and awe for the art she had back then. Whether it’s a wedding, newborn, or family portrait shoot, she works closely with clients to capture them at their best.
