Alternately, a portrait session is helmed by an experienced photographer who shoots all portraits using a handheld digital camera for maximized personal interaction. For anyone with children in tow, the photographers are as experienced in coaxing smiles from frowning mini-people as snake-charmers are at getting pythons to soften their edgy look before a big corporate interview. PortraitBug also specializes in corporate and adult headshots. Portrait prints and a CD full of copyright-released images from the shoot make the resulting photographs easily shareable with friends and family for years to come.
