Scottsdale-based portrait and photography studio Captured Moments is expanding its studio space and its services.

The 1,600 square foot studio, located in the historic Stable Galleria on the northeast corner of Cattletrack Road and McDonald Drive, has been renovated.

And Captured Moments also launched a new division called CM Elite.

While Captured Moments has specialized in family, glamour and special occasion portrait photography since 1993, CM Elite will focus exclusively on providing modern head shots and corporate team portraits for small and large companies.

“I saw an opportunity to expand our corporate business and a need in the market for a luxury head shot studio, so we decided to undergo an expansion to make it happen,” said Rita Sherman, founder of Captured Moments.

To accommodate CM Elite, Captured Moments added an addition 600 square feet to its studio. 

The additional space provides more room for larger groups and boasts a private sales and viewing area.

Captured Moments is a completely women-owned and -operated portrait photography studio.

In 2004, Sherman hired her daughter Sydney Sherman as CEO and Heather Montasir as production director and lead photographer.

Within the last year, they continued to grow the company with the addition of Allison Jourden as associate photographer and Brionna Raum as social media coordinator and blogger.

“This company has completely taken off from its humble beginnings of small backyard shoots when I started it 27 years ago,” said Rita, an award-winning photographer. “Little did I know that this team of hard-working women would transform it into what it is today.” 

To celebrate the launch of CM Elite, Captured Moments is offering head shots at a discounted price of $250 per session through Sept. 30.

Sessions typically start at $399.
