With 40 years of experience between them, the shutterbug husband and wife duo of Brent and Dawn capture life's grandest moments through their work at Angela Clifton Photography. Specializing in on-location shoots illuminated by natural light, they capture the moments that cell phones, or ever the most tenured court painter, can't do justice to. Baby's first steps. The glow of an expectant mother. The playful frolics of a new pet. The family's first trip to the beach. These are brief moment's that the photographers make timeless.
For weddings and engagements, Brent and Dawn's photographs document the romance of two hearts beating at once, and for aspiring models and actors, they create headshots that practically leap into the hands of casting directors. For those who want to understand the art and mechanics of family photography, Angela Clifton Photography offers photo classes that build upon the technical aspects of lenses, lighting, and composition, and include tips on how to work with families for the perfect shot.
At Carts Photography, Eddie and his wife Katerina commemorate the most meaningful moments in their clients' lives by editing digital images to represent their unique style and producing crisp prints. With a portfolio of graduating seniors and portraits of individuals and families, the team has experience shooting just about any kind of image—and making them look unique. After photo sessions an artist on staff will make edits to the images so that shoots are customized and cater uniquely to each customer's wishes. But it's the team's care for the client's experience before, during, and after the shoot that really helps them stand out. As such, they mount prints 16"x24" or larger on 2mm foam boards to make them more durable and less likely to be turned into origami by a visitor, and offer a variety of photography packages for clients to choose from. Examples of Carts Photography's photos and ideas can be found on their Pintrest page.

Professional photographers Steve and Nina have a few tricks up their sleeves when it comes to creating magical photo opportunities. To get a child to smile, for example, Steve will ask him or her to blow a quarter off his forehead; a little game that he finds produces genuine looks of awe. This is just one way the duo behind Fairy Portrait Studio gets children to come out of their shells. They specialize in mystical-themed photo shoots complete with fairy princess and Robin Hood costumes, and an enchanted forest set. As young boys and girls explore the set’s rocks and pond, Steve and Nina are hard at work capturing their sweet moments, which can then be memorialized in large-format portraits.
Rina Alvarez sees capturing other people’s memories on film as a great honor and her life’s work. She strives to capture these special moments through a variety of sessions from organically composed family portraits to flirtatious boudoir shots to photographs of dancers and musicians in motion. Alvarez has a talent for working with both natural and indoor light, which serves her well when she is capturing standard wedding shots, from the kiss at the altar to the moment when the best man dumps a cooler of champagne over the bride and groom.
To Olena, each event and every person is unique, so she strives to honor that uniqueness with a photographic style that is both artistic and playful. The playfulness comes from the laid-back, light-hearted setting she fosters during photo sessions, which allows clients to relax and be themselves, and the artistic composition comes from her experience in photography and degree in multimedia and computer imaging. She shoots everything from weddings and portraits to headshots and baby sessions, and can enhance all sessions with products such as custom photo albums and frames.
