On top of all the technical know-how it takes to competently wield a camera, you need to have an obsession for chasing that elusive moment when your subject opens up and flashes a genuine, powerful emotion. It's not easy, but photographer Melissa A. Dozier sure makes it look that way. At M.A.D. Images, Melissa draws on a background of professional courses to snap images that capture what it feels like to be a child, newlywed, or pregnant mother whose baby gets all the attention.
Stephanie Ceglia, the talent behind Everlasting Photography, sees the world through her camera lens. However, she doesn't trap herself in a studio or deadbolted photo booth; she captures portraits of kids and adults at locations of their choice.

Quality photos capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings much more efficiently then papier-mâché sculptures. At studiolano, photographer April Catalano utilizes her many years of experience to photograph subjects with a microscopic attention to detail. During a one-hour session at studiolano’s fully equipped studio, April will rattle off 50–75 shots of multiple poses with the speed and precision of a camera-fitted, laser-guided cheetah. Striking images are artfully captured with an uncommon eye to provide game-changing glimpses of the subject’s pleasant disposition that can’t be replicated with an emoticon-riddled letter of recommendation. After the photo shoot, customers place their package order from the comfort of their plush, indoor hammocks with online proof viewing and ordering.
Armed with high-quality photo paper and photo-finishing equipment, Harmon Photo's staff transforms digital photos into tangible keepsakes. Memory-card images enter the real world in forms including standard 4"x6" prints, massive 40"x60" canvases, and plush pillows. Conversely, non-digital items—such as photos, drawings, and degrees—hop into a flatbed scanner to enter cyberspace, where they can be resized, restored, and emailed. Upon request, technicians enhance photos by adjusting color and brightness and cropping out cousins who turned out to just be escaped orangutans.
A professionally shot portrait is a superb way to quell confusion when future bouts of amnesia result in terrifying run-ins with a persistent stalker who keeps turning up in the world's reflective surfaces.

Whether you're keen on luring that debonair antique dealer into your den with a well-placed individual glamour shot or preserving a portrait of your family for posterity, the one-hour session promises to provide you with professional-quality photos for your framing or party-flyer-producing pleasure.
