Sheri has done a couple of different pet photos for us and it's been a wonderful experience all around. Typically we talk the dogs out to a friend's home in the suburbs so there's lost of room for the dogs to run around and for Sheri to get really good shots of them. Currently, there's no studio photo work. Either she comes to your home or you find an outside location the dogs will enjoy.
CONS: No studio.
One of the few places with quality emergency services for pets that I'm familiar with. I found out about this place when my neighbor's cat need immediate care on a holiday. They're very caring, very qualified, personnel. In addition to their late hours, they're open evenings, weekends, and holidays. Why do most emergencies seem to happen on holidays? Well, they're here if anything does happen and they're very good.
BSA is what you would call "people-to-people." They match up impaired individuals needing help with individuals and organizations that are offering help. In addition, they offer support groups, senior services, and computer support. They can help scholarships, as well. Their goal is to help impaired individuals be as independent as possible. Donations, are of course, tax deductible.
Their claim to fame here is that they don't do much studio work. Like you go to your favorite park or something and they take photos there. Or you can have the photos taken in your house. I can take outdoor or at-home photos myself. The whole point of professional portraits is the fake backdrop and lighting and props. I decided to skip this place but someone else may appreciate it.
What sets Marshall apart is their focus on the corporate environment. They were the photographers of choice for an anniversary celebration I attended for mid-sized compnay. The photos turned out quite well. Over the entire weekend celebration the photographers apparently went everywhere. Yet, they were not all intrusive. True professionals.
Completely noisy! What do you expect? It's a drumming circle. That's makes a really great place to bring kids. Best of all, it's free. The downside is they only meet once per week and it's on Fridays. Also, they sometimes have a lot of cancellations in one month. The website will have the updated schedules reguarly. Overall, it's a pretty good idea for some afterschool fun.
CONS: Only one a week.
This is full-service organization that works with both children and adults. They do so much it's incredible. Almost everything is done one-on-one and adapted to the needs of that particular individual. They have employment services, an independent living skills program, a seniors initiative, and the highly regarded Low Vision Rehabilitative Program. They even have their own doctors in this program. It's wonderful and there are opportunities available to donate time or money to keep this institution going.
I know a company that had their logo printed on some promotional items and they used this place. The promotional items were T-Shirts and mouse pads and I think cups. I've seen poor designs for t-shirts and I was very pleased. They got the color mix right for the logo and the shirts looked really great. The company might look small but they don't do shoddy work. I keep talking about them to clients because the work was so well done.
Harmony is terrific little company. We had some problems with the piano in our church and we called this guys and they came out with a new piano before the end of the week. Pianos are very expensive but shopping around the price was really reasonable. THe customer service was really great as well.
An upscale place where the pregnant woman in life can get sinfully pampered. In addition to the massage classes (for women and lessons on how to massage your newborn) they also offer yoga here. What I like most is their responsiveness to the community. They got some feedback about the need for workshops specifically for women with twins and within a very short period of time they one up and running. Cool.
