For more than 30 years, there has been a frame shop at Dry Creek and University. And, despite a decade of ownership shuffling, framers coming and going, and a name change, Studio C Framing has carried on as the community's frame shop. Today, husband and wife owners Matt and Bethany—who met at the shop 10 years ago—have distilled Studio C's operation into a team of talented professionals. Combined, that team boasts more than 50 years of experience in preserving special objects behind glass, from guitars and photos to entire refrigerator doors. The shop also provides such services as picture installation, design advice, and canvas stretching, and every month, it showcases pieces of art from students at Arapahoe High School.

After the relaxed shoot, subjects can peruse an online gallery, electing 15 of their favorite images for a high-resolution CD. Clients will also receive $5 toward prints and an additional 10% off print orders on pictage.com, as well as $25 towards the purchase of a high-resolution CD of all images and bunny-ear apparitions from the photo shoot.
