Accomplished photographers at Clix Portrait Studios capture elegant portraits of families, children, and beloved pets in their sophisticated studio. During sessions, the photographers put subjects at ease to lure out genuine smiles, natural-looking poses, and honest opinions about cheese. In addition to snapping classic-style portraits, the informal sessions provide the opportunity to customize shots with props or the inclusion of a favorite pet dressed in its favorite floppy hat. At the studio, clients can migrate from photo shoot to design center to turn their images from pixels to photo books, gift cards, and other portrait-bearing crafts with optional assistance from staff members.
Atlas Family Media restores old media and converts them to modern formats for a lifetime of continued enjoyment. Precious family memories, once captured only on videotape and semi-eaten macaroni collages, get a second wind with modern image capture and transposition technologies. Relive anniversaries, birthdays, or vacations on an enhanced digital format that can be viewed on the computer or through any DVD player and lasts for years to come. Clients can also improve their viewing experience by electing to remove up to 20% of the material, including downtime or shots obstructed by voluminous 1980s hairdos. DVD transfers are ready for pickup within one week of VHS delivery at Atlas Family Media's Johnston location, and clients get to keep their original VHS tapes.
