NorthLight Photography's owner and award-winning shutterbug Janet Boschker has spent more than 28 years ensnaring the smiles of babies, children, and families within poignant black-and-white and color prints. Whether she's snapping portraits on location or in the prop- and background-garnished studio, Boschker's personalized approach and keen artistic eye infuse natural-looking poses with a spark of spontaneity. After relaxing out of the final pose and a state of lens-induced high-fashion hypnosis, subjects can peruse the photos and order prints in person. The array of print sizes include large Classic and Gallery sizes in addition to 5"x7" ($80) and wallet-sized photos specially trained in the art of conversation with bill-printed presidents ($30 for 8).
A mop of hair fringes an infant's milky-white face, his plump cheeks reminiscent of a porcelain doll. Though the image is black and white, the boy's eyes are as striking as any baby blues—reflections of the white linens gathered around his legs add depth and life to his playful gaze. This photograph, which won Janet Boschker the Canon Par Excellence Award in 2010, is but one of many that have earned the photographer numerous accolades.
At Northlight Photography, the Boschker's own studio, the photographer flaunts her signature blend of award-winning artistry in custom portraiture. Whether capturing the innocence of a child, the love of a family, or the excitement of a special event, she strives to turn each image into an artistic and timeless representation of its subject. The expert also shares some of her trade secrets through introductory and advanced photo classes.
