With a quick draw on their cameras and an eye for detail, the shutterbugs at Schade Photography don't let a moment slip by. They cover everything from weddings to birthdays, documenting all manner of important life events. They can also snap portraits of families, kids, and couples, both in-studio and on-location.
A recent mom herself, A Shot 2 Remember Photography’s pro shutterbug understands the importance of capturing precious family moments for posterity. She frames those fleeting occasions with her camera during newborn, maternity, children’s, and family portrait sessions. Skilled with all varieties of lighting, she works both outdoors on location as well as in her studio.
Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio 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 recreate 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.
With a passion for empowering women, Angela Woolridge Portrait puts all clients in the best light during glamour and boudoir photo shoots.

Adding to the glitz and glamour, they pamper clients with hair and makeup makeovers and unlimited wardrobe changes during 90-minute sessions.
Shirley Compton’s eye for the unexpected is apparent from her photography portfolio, whether it’s in the serenity of a lighthouse peeking over a thicket of ocean grasses, the delicate curve of a flamingo’s neck, or the neon-green lettering of an industrial engineer’s class shirt. She brings this eye to her sessions with families, engaged couples, and graduating seniors and then to her studio, where she edits the day’s shots into pleasing pictures.
