Guests can also peruse a collection of 300 ready-made frames that will fit snugly around standard-size pictures, or commission custom tabletop frames to showcase unconventionally sized posters. More than 100 framed, beveled mirrors further populate the store, silently reflecting the reversed T-shirt graphics and snarky grins of each shopper's personal doppelgänger.

Though she typically photographs her clients in her Pelham studio or amid Alabama landscapes, Amanda Moses made an exception to that rule in late 2012. To celebrate the holiday season, she snapped a series of shots in Santa's workshop, a whimsical set where the bearded myth himself made his list, checked it twice, and mugged for the camera with Moses’s two young daughters.
When she's not framing Santa, Moses draws on more than 10 years of photographic expertise to capture images of families, children, weddings, and sexy boudoir pictures. To better grasp what kinds of poses or prints they most prefer, Moses likes to spend time getting to know her clients before each session—a practice that also comes in handy for putting subjects at ease for the shoot.
