Emily Davis Photography grabs light by the wavelengths and wrestles it into picture machines before squeezing it into memorable slices of life. Families of up to four people (add $15 for each additional person) get a one-hour photo session ($100) to grin and pose their way to pictorial permanence. The number of outfits customers can use is limited only by the time of the photo session. Emily, a talented photographer whose clients have highly praised her work, is well versed at coaxing natural poses from her clients, whether it be in a controlled studio setting or amid the unpredictable nature of nature.
Food, stress, blood-sugar levels, wearing a steel hat—any and all of these factors can bring on a massive headache. According to the West Hills Medical Center, 90% of Americans suffer from headaches, and they use a number of resources to identify and combat the cause. Medical care, physical therapy, and chiropractic care combined with a medically administered nerve-blocking nasal spray work in concert to provide immediate relief, and the effects last longer with each subsequent treatment.
This process stands as just one example of West Hills Medical Center’s commitment to helping patients manage and eliminate pain. Consultations can identify the source of muscle aches while guiding patients toward avoiding the problem in the future. Guided by doctors, skilled massage therapists knead deep-seated tension from the back and limbs. At West Hills, a range of advanced equipment, such as ankle-foot orthotics and knee braces, helps clients safeguard their health after they leave the practice. The staff also focuses on beautification as well as rehabilitation with B12 injections designed to burn fat, boost energy, and make all chocolate bars look like mousetraps.
Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
Photographer Charlene Potts specializes in capturing some of life’s biggest milestones: new babies, engagements, weddings, high-school grads, and her specialty of pet portraits. Prior to each session, Charlene meets with subjects and furry family members in their homes to discuss personal style and various wall-art options in their space. Her portrait sessions generally last 90 minutes, with a follow-up appointment a few weeks later to review prints. Held 10 days after each session, the follow-up appointment includes a viewing of prints and selection of favorite images. She also provides an online gallery where family, friends, and online avatars who happen to be art critics can view the pictures. She shares her craft in other ways, too. She regularly leads photography classes in which she teaches students about composition, exposure, and camera operations.
