Led by Amitai 'Ami' Sela, the staff of Amitai Sela Photography works to create timeless, classic images that tell a story. Working creatively with clients, Ami, along with photographers, captures indelible portraits or candid shots at events in the style desired. Packages for the first year of a baby's life help to document everything from maternity shots to learning to stand, and wedding packages can include slideshows set to music and special-effects editing.
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.
Sears Portrait Studio's original photographers committed their first family photos to film more than 60 years ago, and the studio's digital photographers continue the tradition of taking high-quality portraits at more than 1,000 U.S. locations open today. Each professional photographer completes a rigorous training program before they begin composing and shooting digital photographs, adopting styles ranging from formal portraits to passport photos. Their all-digital system lets customers access their photographs online, where they can add graphics before ordering prints for collages, greeting cards, mugs, and broken-mug collages.
Upon entering one of Snap Shot Photo Booth’s mobile units, objects from its prop table in hand, you press a touchscreen that suddenly displays a live video of the booth’s inhabitants trying to huddle into frame. A countdown precedes the first photo, and, as you position yourself for the next shot, the screen flashes the crystalline image the booth’s 18-megapixel Cannon camera just snapped. Smudge-proof, waterproof, and bulletproof strips emerge from a high-definition Sony dye-sublimation printer eight seconds after the session wraps up.
Such is the Snap Shot Photo Booth experience, which accommodates clientele with open booths, enclosed booths that fit up to 10 guests, and an 8'x10' lounge unit which hosts up to 15. Photo-booth attendants oversee the shutterbug festivities and help ensure that each client receives all the perks of their packages, which can include digital copies of every picture taken, a keepsake scrapbook signed by visitors, or a number of add-on and layout options.
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.
