Ugly Duckling Portraits' seasoned cameraman Charles Gilbert freezes moments into family, newborn, and infant portraits, senior pictures, and professional headshots.

Alternatively, clients can model at a private studio and fuse their images with a choice of more than 100 green-screen backdrops including fall trees, American flags, and streaming colors. Four to five business days after sessions, customers can peruse an online slideshow of up to 40 images captured during the shoot and select one to take home as an 11" x 14" or 16" x 20" print, or select five images to be digitally retouched. Finally, the studio prints the client's favorite image with luster or glossy finish, and prints the client's most despised image onto a napkin and sets it aflame.
