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.
Professional photographer Jaci Sumner approaches every shoot with a clean slate, taking cues from the personalities of those centered in her lens rather than imposing a fixed aesthetic onto a client or occasion. The resulting photos are marked by a certain naturalness and are made unique by the photographer's willingness to break with outmoded photography conventions.
When she's not taking photographs, Jaci engages in locally focused philanthropic efforts that include her own organization, ProjectStella. The initiative was named after her dog and studio companion Stella, and has raised funds for the Milwaukee Humane Society since 2009.

Professional photographer Paul D. Manke instructs novice to advanced shot-snappers in the finer points of memory capture during two-hour evening photography classes. Both the Intro to Compact Camera and Intro to SLR sessions take place in the classroom and familiarize students with camera basics, including navigating the menu, downloading images, and using the camera to capture irrefutable proof that zorses exist. Level-two compact-camera and SLR courses delve into hands-on photography and snapping pictures using the manual setting. A special night class teaches students to take photos in the dark, and advanced camera clutchers in the SLR #3 class hone sophisticated skills such as quick exposure reading and setting.
Owners Brad Thalmann and Angela Harle snap stunning portraits for high-school seniors customized to reflect the personality and interests of each subject. Clients can choose to hold their senior portrait session at the studio's indoor or outdoor space, and can prepare to pose for roughly 90 minutes in up to three different outfits or forty different hair flips ($20–$60). A few weeks after the personalized picture sitting, the photographers display the expertly edited portraits for clients on a large screen while telling personal anecdotes about each image. After customers pick their prints, the studio will immortalize the images on professional Kodak paper with a variety of packages, including die-cut wallet portraits ($30–$120), gift portraits ranging from 4"x5" to 8"x10" ($25–$80), large wall portraits ($150–$1000), or a leather-bound portrait portfolio presenting eight different 4"x5" pictures ($150).
Photographer Kimberly Gernetzky, owner of the boutique portrait studio Evenson Photography, excels in making clients comfortable during portrait sessions. She sometimes coaxes them into showing their true personalities—and captures the resulting intimate moments during portrait sessions for children, families, and high-school seniors. Many include outfit changes, and all are conducted in front of a range of elegant backgrounds. Although she puts lots of care into her photo shoots, Gernetzky's work doesn't end with the session. Her studio also performs custom photo retouching and in-house framing.
