All four of Sweeney Photography's photographers are pros who have been perfecting their soul- and smile-capturing abilities since they were very young. Put one of their nurturing directorial skills and time-freezing talents to the test by having him or her coax natural smiles out of a newborn, a soon-to-be mom, a high-school senior, pets, or family members. Sweeney Photography is capable of handling families as large as fifteen ($85 for session only) or as small as two ($45 for session only). Plus, Sweeney’s skilled shutterbugs are adept at providing bands with CD-cover images and actors and public figures with publicity portraits wherein they aren’t juggling cats. Visit the chic studio to get immaculately lighted, impeccably assembled shots, or let a photographer travel to your living room, favorite park, or the inside of an abandoned salt mine to capture artful images that incorporate real-life details. If you get two Groupons and combine them for a wedding, a photography planner will take the time to understand your and your fiancé’s vision and style before pairing you with a like-minded squad of shutterbugs who will canvas the scene in search of the most momentous moments.

With 100 wedding, 350 high-school-senior, and countless family and children sessions under her belt, Allison skillfully frames her clients before generating their likenesses on digital files, retouched prints, or custom photo books sandwiched between softcovers, hardcovers, or heavy-metal covers.
