Flashbox Shop’s shutterbugs show families, kids, expectant mothers, and couples in a wide variety of appealing lights. Their unique style of photography mixes candid snapshots with prepared poses and close-ups to draw out subjects’ eyes and unique expressions. Photographers also venture out for on-location shoots that make use of an area's scenic backdrops and natural lighting. After the shoot, an online proofing system saves time by letting clients look at pictures from the comfort of their own homes instead of having to go back into the studio or have them described over the phone. The boutique that shares the space displays flashy jewelry that can bring glamor to any shoot and handcrafted frames to complement images printed on high-end papers with finishes from linen to metallic.
