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.
The photos we leave behind may be the only way for future generations to see the styles and personalities we bear. That’s why the professional makeup artists and photographers at Glamour Shots strive to capture the true essence of a person with their shoots. Whether commemorating a milestone event or a successful trip to the grocery store, each session begins with the shop’s signature full airbrush and style makeover, which works to prevent unwanted shine while imparting a chic aesthetic. Makeup artists tailor looks to the purpose of the shoot, imparting children with a red-cheeked glow and boudoir subjects with a dark, seductive color palette.
Photographers encourage everyone to bring a few outfits and props from home, allowing them to give each photo shoot an individualized touch without snapping close-ups of their subjects’ fingerprints. Clients get to see the photos immediately so they can approve the looks and order their favorite shots in the form of pictures, phone cases, or calendars. A professional lab then prints out the chosen items using a range of color finishes—including colorization to make one color pop and the company's signature Glamour Touch retouching—onto made-to-last Kodak paper.
Member of the American Society of Photographers, Tracy Van Zeeland draws upon 16 years' worth of camera-wielding wisdom to capture classic snapshots in a fun and casual atmosphere. The photog passes the one-hour session patiently clicking away as children relax and play, producing prints that ensnare the saplings' innate sweetness while sidestepping temper tantrums prompted by puppets speaking ill of that big shot Big Bird. Customers can choose one outfit and one backdrop, so suit up a squirt in their Sunday best and settle them on a white wicker chair, or maroon babes dressed as cubs on a desert island in their sea faring finery. Directly after the film frenzy, pintsize patrons and their parents peruse a deluge of digital prints on a big-screen TV to select the snapshot for their color 8"x10" print, ready in two weeks. Multitudinous clans can have up to three snapshot subjects, with an additional $5 per each child. Tracy also conquers newborn and family portraits, senior pictures, and more.
WeMontage transforms collections of digital pictures into custom hangable collages, celebrating events ranging from a baby's birth to a spur-of-the-moment trip to Iceland. The process is simple: customers upload and arrange their images, which can be culled from cell phones and digital cameras alike, and then place their order. Their handiwork arrives printed on removable wallpaper, whose adhesive allows for hammer-free hanging but never damages paint jobs.
