This week may bring Michael Kors and Bebe, and next week could feature Ann Taylor and Seven, but no matter when someone stops in Eye of the Beholder Consignments, items from high-profile brands can be found on the shelves. Handbags may carry names such as Prada, Coach, and Juicy Couture, and clothing may hail from Talbots, Chico's, and Coldwater Creek. The shop also stocks shoes, business suits, and maternity wear for expectant mothers and dudes who just want to get closer to their children by dressing as a nanny. A portion of proceeds goes to charities such as the Baltimore Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.
A loving wife. A devoted mother. A skilled marathon runner. In her private life, Jewell Juergensen excels at any role she takes on. That success follows her to the professional realm; as the photographer behind The Boudoir House, Jewell captures her clients' sensual sides with technical prowess and interpersonal intuition.

In 1999, 17-year-old Laura Ren?e began her first foray into photography by snapping shots of tour groups passing through Baltimore?s Inner Harbor. From that summer job, Laura?s fascination with photography eventually led to the opening of her own professional studio. Both at the studio and on location, Laura takes a photojournalistic approach, capturing candid images of families, newborns, and expectant moms rather than using artificial poses or encasing subjects in plaster casts for the entire session. She maintains this approach when she?s covering weddings, for which she offers unlimited photographs. During sultry boudoir shoots, however, she mixes in posed images with candid ones.

Although tape and video media were once the mainstays of recording technology, repeated usage will gradually deteriorate their quality. The team at Advanced Video Systems has stymied that deterioration by digitizing Super 8, 16mm, audio, and other media into wear-proof CDs and DVDs for more than three decades. In addition to preserving precious memories, the staff also restores the color and contrast to faded and foggy images, slides, and vinyl records.
