Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Portrait Innovations operates digital-imaging studios throughout the country that use advanced technology to capture and print family memories in about 60–90 minutes. Before the shoot, adults can browse the open studio space's selection of different poses, props, and backgrounds while children entertain themselves at a Lego table and beg invisible friends to make an appearance for the camera. Photographers use handheld digital cameras to memorialize smiles during the session, utilizing the studio's lighting system to enhance candid images. Patrons then view and select their favorite poses, adding special effects to design and create personalized gifts such as portrait books, calendars, canvases, and mugs. The team prints the high-resolution portraits on archival-quality paper with a high-capacity Fujifilm Digital Frontier system, and ships specialty gift items to clients' homes for free.
Retired actor, model, marketer, and current professional photographer Michael Cavotta artfully snaps sundry subjects with a personalized touch. Before each one-hour digital headshoot, a brief, personalized branding session allows Michael to shepherd clients through the marketing process⎯ensuring that each picture says precisely what it’s meant to, whether it's "I am perfect for this role" or "I finally bounced back from that nasty hornet attack." After capturing your headshot, he’ll briefly retouch, finesse, and eartag the image before releasing it into the wilderness of your email inbox as a web-optimized JPEG.
A state-of-the art photography studio, Prelude Photography snaps scores of striking images, capturing memorable moments more effectively than making snow angels that melt when shoveled indoors. Specializing in photographing families, children, and pets, Prelude offers a play area that keeps kids occupied. A large, bright studio ensures that subjects remain relaxed while cutting-edge cameras and photo software magically illuminate smiles and charmingly transform leering stares. Large monitors are present to immediately showcase striking shots; most prints are printed within the hour, and free digital enhancements are provided. Select your three favorite images and receive one 10x13 print, two 8x10 prints, four 5x7 prints, four 4x5 prints, and twenty-four wallet prints; for an additional $15, you can add two more print sheets and receive digital images as well. Or, for an additional fee, opt to have a photographer sent to your home, office, or tree house for an off-site session (fee varies based on location, distance, and subjects).
For decades, JCPenney Portraits has welcomed families into its friendly studios, where photographers expertly photograph subjects of any age. Digital cameras, professional lighting, and a wide selection of backgrounds all work together to ensure a polished, personalized look for every family portrait, school picture, business headshot, or baby announcement. To customize the session even more, the staff also encourages guests to incorporate items with special meaning such as a baby blanket, a family heirloom, or the wishbone from grandma's first Thanksgiving.
After the final flash, clients and a team member head to the viewing kiosk, where they can select their photos and customize them. Beyond prints, memories may also be preserved on high-resolution MyImages CDs, gallery wraps, or through JCPenney Portraits' archival program, which allows clients to store and share their portraits online.
