What makes your business stand out?
All of our photo shoots are on location. We can come right to your home or meet at a favorite spot. When people are in their own environment, they tend to be more comfortable which makes for a much more successful photo shoot.
What inspired you to start this business?
Photography has been a family business for me. My grandfather and grandmother began their portrait photography business in Hudson, NY over 60 years ago. My uncle took over the business when my grandparents passed and made it his life work, which he continues even today. I decided to follow in my family's path, went to school for photography, did my graduate studies in art education, and began my own photography business.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Capturing memories for people. It is a great feeling to produce keepsakes for people of special events, special people in their lives, and the fun times that they had.
For more than 20 years, the experienced photographers of KHP Studios have snapped award-winning photos for both individual and corporate clients, such as Pepsi, Tide, and Crest. Join these ranks with the headshot portrait session, which begins with professional makeup and styling steadily applied by a KHP staff member to ensure each client puts his or her best face forward and keeps his or her backup face in their pocket. Subjects then plant feet firmly in the center of KHP's spacious studio, posing and smiling for 50–100 photos amid the location's hand-painted backdrops. Post-session, the newly snapped select a favorite frame, which the KHP photographers will then minimally retouch and send back to the customer in the form of either one 8"x10" print, two 5"x7" prints, or one tattooed goat.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
For more than 60 years, Toys“R”Us has been helping kids be kids and grown-ups to revisit their childhoods by providing one of the largest selections of top-brand toys, electronics, games and everyday baby essentials. Founder, Charles Lazarus, revolutionized the toy business by modeling his stores after supermarkets, providing a variety of options to suit varying ages and interests and offering customers to help themselves and have fun in the process. Today, that sense of playfulness is evident at nearly 600 stores in the United States alone, including a flagship location in Times Square where kids are greeted by a 60-foot Ferris wheel, a 5-ton animatronic T-Rex, and a life-sized, 4,000-square-foot Barbie house.
Beyond everybody's favorite bikes, trains and video games, each Toys“R”Us store keeps its shelves stocked with the season’s must-have toys as well as nostalgic standbys that never go out of style. Time-tested brands such as LEGO, Radio Flyer, NERF and Fisher-Price share the shelves with an expansive selection of electronics for older kids, including Wii U and tablets. And though the company has inspired generations of boys and girls to try their hardest not to grow up, it also strives to ensure budding brains develop right on track by devoting a significant portion of its stores to “smart-play” with a wide selection of electronic learning toys and software.
Toys“R”Us—whose extended family of brands includes Babies“R”Us and FAO Schwarz—has earned a number of awards and recognitions through the years, including a spot on Fortune’s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies in 2012. The company has also drawn considerable recognition for its expansive charitable efforts, which include partnerships with the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and Save the Children. This year also marks the tenth consecutive year that the company has partnered with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to collect new, unwrapped toys and monetary donations in its stores to benefit the organization.
