Captured Images, LLC’s owner knows her way around Raleigh. Her on-location photo shoots take place everywhere from the sidewalks of Fayetteville Street to the shaded trails of Yates Mill Park. These natural settings are the backdrop for her specialty: family photos. She captures all stages of family life, including weddings, maternity, newborn, and family reunions. Many of her photos feature vibrant color, but she occasionally likes to send them through the sepia filter to add a rustic touch reminiscent of George Washington’s dating profile picture.
Director Mary-Taylor Land has walked the stage in several shoes. From learning as a student and pirouetting as a performer, she went on to judge and teach routines. Away from the theater, she researched dance through different technical lenses, bringing her expertise to seminars for both the artistic and medical communities. The breadth of her knowledge enabled her to find seasoned instructors for her studio, all of whom have received college and professional training.
Today, she and her team strive to instill passion and discipline for the practice of dance in children of all ages. Beginning with preschool classes such as Mommy and Me, they hone a basic understanding of rhythm so that parents don't have to recite a four-count as they rock their cribs. Their older students can choose styles from a wide curriculum, which covers ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop, and acro as well as combination lessons. Throughout each class, the teachers devote personal attention to their protégés. They can help to prep youngsters before academy recitals and competitive ensemble auditions, or simply foster a deeper appreciation for grace and art.
After 20 years as a professional photojournalist, during which he garnered two Pulitzer Prize nominations—one for covering the MOVE disaster and another for a story on pediatric AIDS—Bruce Johnson settled into the woods of Raleigh with his two sons and opened a photography studio. He has now added a decade of family and individual portraiture to his wealth of experience, which has also included photographing everything from fashion to political figures. Johnson’s mastery of the art is apparent as he captures natural expressions and unique interpersonal dynamics, preserving children’s laughter and high-school graduates’ confident grins for future generations to study from the comfort of their moon bungalows.
