Today’s post we’re featuring one of our favorite portrait photographers out there, Enchanted Images. The awesome photographers behind this great portrait photography business is James and Stephani Hays. They are from Roseville, California, near Sacramento if I’m not mistaken.
I first became fans of theirs on photoSIG when James would post images for critique. His work made me an instant fan and I’ve been one ever since. He’s an inspiration of mine and his work just gets better and better and more classy all of the time.
Enchanted images specializes in seniors and family portraits. A great combination for these guys as they know how to do it perfectly with the right artistic touches. They are so inspiring to me I think because they never cease to produce images that look beautiful and cutting edge, fashion forward and timeless, artistic and perfectly flattering for each individual subject. I just love these guys!!!
If you haven’t ever checked them out or it’s been a while, stop what you’re doing and go there now! It will be well worth your time.
Check out their site or their blog. How about their facebook page? If that’s not enough, you can even check out their photoSIG page! If you talk to them, let them know you found them on our site!

About eight years ago, I was shooting portraits in Louisburg, KS and had a conversation with an older woman who told me that she had twin granddaughters who lived in Chicago, but flew into Kansas City to have their senior portraits done by a studio called Antisdels. She also told me how much they spent on senior portraits and as I recall, she said it was somewhere in the ballpark of a couple thousand dollars. I was in disbelief. I couldn’t believe someone would come that far for senior portraits and secondly that someone would pay that much for them. That was until I saw their work and have now come to realize who they are.
Antisdel’s Photography, located in Louisburg, KS, a suburb of Kansas City, is a portrait studio that specializes in children and senior portraits. They are also founders of Senior Portrait Artists, or SPA as they are more commonly known, an organization dedicated to art and business of senior portraits.
Antisdel’s photography to me is really what senior portraits and children / family portraits are supposed to be all about. They are bright, colorful, youthful, vibrant, fresh, new, contemporary, stylish, cutting edge, emotive and the list could certainly go on and on and on. If you haven’t heard of Antisdel’s, I highly suggest checking their work out and also checking out SPA. It will be well worth your time!
