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.
The artistic shutterbugs at Santini Photography encourage their subjects to articulate their own vision for a photo shoot, allowing the photographers to tailor each shoot to encompass the client’s wishes. This creative collaboration yields a unique styling and relaxed atmosphere that captures the essence of a giggling infant, diploma-chewing high school graduate, or glowing mother-to-be. The third-generation boutique studio perfects portraits of groups as well as individuals, welcoming families for professionally lit sessions. After a photo shoot, clients can order prints for framing or acquire contemporary wall displays for covering up holes left from fly-swatting trebuchets still in testing.
Santini Photography also encourages donations to Operation Smile—a children’s medical charity that provides free surgeries for youth born with facial deformities—by offering photo sessions for those who donate.
