Easy as A-B-C, the artists behind Life in Letters craft custom photographic gifts available both in their shop and online. Over the years, they've amassed a vast collection of black-and-white photos of common objects and sights that resemble letters—such as arches, golf balls, fences, and palm trees—which they assemble into meaningful words, such as love, laugh, family, and nihilism. Once customers have chosen their word and selected each letter, they can have their piece matted and framed to suit their own decor or that of a loved one. The photographers also share their skills with aspiring shutterbugs during regular introductory photography classes.
Artistic pursuits eat up most of Janné Peterson’s time each week. That’s because she’s an elementary art teacher with a master’s degree in graphic arts, fine arts, and art education; a specially trained portrait artist belonging to the Professional Photographers of Ohio; and the founding photographer of Janné Photographics. Janné snaps family portraits with a contemporary style, capturing loved ones linked arm-and-arm against the rich colors of scenic outdoor expanses where many of her on-location shoots take place. In studio, Janné makes use of colored backdrops, lighting setups, and talcum powder-scented air fresheners that cater towards baby photo sessions.
