For two decades, RedRock Photography’s camera connoisseurs have photographed smiling faces to create high-quality portraits. During private in-studio shoots for up to eight people, subjects twist fingers around sunflowers, lounge with bikes, and relax against bright curtains as camera athletes work out their Olympics-caliber finger-clicking muscles. RedRock's shutterbugs are happy to entertain little ones, and guests of all ages mug for the camera in front of myriad backgrounds or with the studio's props. RedRock’s sessions can include personal flair if subjects wish to bring along a musical instrument, trophy, or pet. Outdoor shoots are held at the customer’s choice of location (within 25 miles of Emporia or Wichita), such as a tree-filled park or favorite yield sign.
After the shoot, RedRock loads 30–45 proofs online within 12–72 hours to allow for leisurely perusal at home and rapid appeasement of jealous family computers. Online print orders are processed at Kodak labs and mailed immediately, arriving within the week. Additional 16"x20" or 10"x13" prints supplement photo shoots with slick re-creations of existing photos or negatives that beg to adorn mantels or competitive-eating portfolios.
When she was eight years old, Nichole Conard’s grandparents gave her the gift of a camera. Since that day, she’s seen the world through the eye of her camera lens. She worked for other photography companies, earning promotions and publication, before she finally realized her dream of opening her own studio, RedRock Photography. When the business grew too big for Nichole to handle alone, she turned to her sister-in-law, Jennifer Baldwin. A passionate shutterbug and photojournalist, Jennifer joined the company as a co-owner and photographer. Today, Nichole focuses on the studio's Wichita branch while Jennifer maintains the Emporia branch.
Today, the sisters-in-law are busy shooting all types of portraits. Nichole has amassed more than 20 years of professional portrait experience, and Jennifer’s been shooting professionally for six years, allowing them to draw from a wealth of experience as they capture family photos, maternity shots, and one-person portraits, as well as their specialty: children’s photography. Sessions at their studio are private and unrushed, and outdoor shoots capture images in a single natural background. During Cruise sessions, the photographer and subject travel around, stopping to take photographs with unique locations, striking landscapes, or curiously grinning cats.
