Heather Deneke of Bomb City Photography creates modern-retro photographic art, snapping shots to commemorate her clients’ finest moments for posterity. Up to two subjects can pose in a location of their choice throughout Amarillo or Canyon, documenting a new engagement, a mid-pregnancy moment of serenity, or the playful vigor of a child or sentient tree. Pin-up shoots are also available, crafting racy images imbued with an old-fashioned sense of class. After the shoot, the proofs move to their online home in a password-protected gallery, where patrons can choose 25–30 images to have edited and printed. A disc bearing high-resolution versions of all the photos from the shoot lets clients print out enough copies to satisfy eager grandparents or wallpaper an unsuspecting enemy's bedroom.
Lewis Picture Framing’s experienced frame architects construct frames and cut mats to assemble customized frames in-shop. Choose from more than 2,000 frame samples to artfully encase family portraits, paintings, and antique Garbage Pail Kids. Custom framing includes molding, mats, glass, backing, and assembly (an average $150 value) and emergency framing is available for last-minute gifts. Lewis Picture Framing’s quality frames take the art of hanging art beyond such jejune measures as tacky industrial-strength sticky tack, staple-tape taple staping, and hiring long-armed men to hold your art against the wall.
The Photo Store's professional photographers immortalize precious moments with family-centric photography sessions tailored for nearly any milestone in life. Maternity and children's portraiture capture the bond between parent and child with sensitive lighting, and customized senior portraits celebrate a young scholar's accomplishments by portraying them in the letterman's jacket of a successful athlete or the ceremonial suit of armor of a Key Club secretary. Subjects snag fleeting memories using backdrops of local cityscapes or parks, or pose at the studio's stunning garden decorated with a 1950s vintage pickup, sunny country porch, waterfall, and re-creation of a Tuscan villa.
Since 1965, the devoted team at The Colony Frame and Gallery has helped locals protect and artfully display their most precious photographs, paintings, prints, and more. Two certified picture framers administer the shop's framing services, using their extensive experience to find the most ideal ends to each client's distinctive framing endeavors. Clients launch the personalized process by stopping in the store with project ideas or questions. Clients can peruse an extensive stock of mounting materials for inspiration or talk with a knowledgeable employee about a custom-designed and handcrafted frame.
