Pfanntastic Photography: Glamour shots for moms of all ages

Jerusha Pfannenschmidt is a transplant from Indiana who moved to Sarasota in 2021. Her passion for creative photography sprung from her love of weddings and working with couples. Jerusha is especially talented with photographing women of all ages. Her creative style, props and sceneries all contribute to her talented work. Glamor photos are “in” nowadays. But not the cheesy kind, but works of art. Buy Mom a gift certificate for one of her photo shoots!

“Asking a photographer what their “style” is can bring out some interesting explanations! So here we go. I make a point to grab a mixture of posed and candid images, so the result ends up producing a wide variety of captures. When dialing in the look and feel, I loved the result from bringing in high quality lighting equipment to create a more vibrant, dramatic and multidimensional appearance. The ultimate goal is to capture emotion and frame it in artistry.”

BLING from Shepherds Jewelry

What mother doesn’t like jewelry and a little BLING, perhaps? Tucked away in a shopping strip on Clark Rd. is family-owned Shepherds Jewelry. Their jewelry is extraordinary, next to their fair pricing. I love this jeweler because they support many local businesses, including Selah Freedom.

Lisa Shepherd of Shepherd’s Jewelers has the perfect gift for mom! Call or stop by.
