Rachael McCoy travels the greater Forth Worth area snapping portraits of families, couples, and kids. Up to five people can ensnare camera eyes during candid shoots that take place in a setting prearranged for its beauty and lack of tire-factory odor. After the shoot, subjects can hang onto their wallet-sized portraits for impromptu sharing and send their greeting cards to half-deserving frenemies. Five watermarked images venture out onto the internet, and a CD loaded with 15–20 high-resolution edited snapshots makes it easy to flaunt images to family and friends.

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.
