Digital cameras, professional lighting, and a wide selection of backgrounds all work together to ensure a polished, personalized look for every family portrait, school picture, business headshot, or baby announcement.

Alive Juices' drinks aren't technically alive. They are, however, brimming with natural enzymes and unaltered nutrients?thanks to the fact that the company presses each freshly before bottling and never pasteurizes. Ayurvedic principles and modern nutritional research come together in eight low-calorie juice blends that strike a balance between savory and semisweet. All are made with garlic, sprouts, ginger, lemon, and apple, but also feature combinations such as beets and kale or red bell pepper and mint. The juice-makers punch up their recipes with a blend of herbs and spices, and use USDA-certified organic produce when possible.
Juices are provided as part of weight-loss programs and full cleanses, and may be used as part of meal-replacement plans that also include fruit and nut snacks rather than just pictures of steaks with Xs drawn over them. To sweeten the arrangement even further, Alive Juices also delivers its packages to customers' homes and offices throughout the DC area.
