Custom Picture Printing prints customizable T-shirts and sweatshirts utilizing direct-to-garment technology that doesn’t require printing screens or gluing your favorite polaroids to your chest. This means they can print single, one-off shirts with the same ease and affordability as printing in bulk. With the same high-tech equipment, they also print tote bags, tank tops, and toddler onesies.
Felicity Christopher sees the world through a kaleidoscope of colorful shapes and personalities. Armed with her Canon camera, she roams weddings and special events such as live music shows, capturing the emotions of the moment in sharp, vibrant images. Whether she's working outdoors or in the studio, her mastery of lighting lends perfection to family gatherings or fashion shoots of the sun in Versace. Fine-art photography is in her repertoire as well, and she applies that commitment to craft to each and every session.
The photographers at Attraction Studio doll up subjects before subjects make their debut in front of the flashing lights. Both the West Covina and Arcadia locations employ professional makeup and hair artists for family, boudoir, or maternity shoots that shuffle backdrops and allow two to three wardrobe changes. Personal items, such as a basketball, guitar, or piece of lint—brought along as props—add a touch of personality to the 25–50 photos snapped at the shoot. After the session, a computerized slideshow parades the fresh snapshots so that customers can nominate their favorites for prints and retouching. Pictures gain an aesthetic lift from Magic Touch, which enables photographers to remove wrinkles, blemishes, and third eyes.
The paper professionals at Paperterie distribute stylish, practical, made-in-house pulped products in a contemporary boutique setting. Declare housecat engagements with colorful save-the-date requests ($31.25+). Keep loved ones informed of successful human-cloning efforts by mailing an announcement that displays a joyful baby's brief life story, including his or her photo, birthday, weight, and spirit animal ($40 for set of 20). Digital and letterpress printed invitations, place cards, and menus personalize special events, most of which require elegant thank-you cards ($25+ for set of 25).
There is no one size fits all when it comes to boudoir photography. That's why before every shoot, the all-female crew at Little Secret Studio conducts personal consultations, during which clients discuss photo packages, settle on their ideal aesthetic, and plan their shoot for a professional studio setting, an outdoor location, or the silky sheets of a luxury hotel. On the day of the shoot, clients may go through two to six outfits and up to two different hairstyles, all furnished by Little Secret Studio's professional styling team. Under professional guidance, clients pose in provocative, flattering angles as the photographer snaps vivid color or black-and-white shots of solo women or couples. Clients preview their shots one or two weeks after the shoot and can opt for their retouched images in the form of a disc, print, canvas and/or Little Secret Black Book. Though boudoir photography is the studio’s specialty, Lifestyle Portrait packages are available to capture life's more PG moments.
