Housed within an art gallery and wine shop, the Urraro Gallery outfits artwork and keepsakes with close-fitting protective frames. Staff lead patrons through a smorgasbord of wood and metal frames to find the border best suited to protect a portrait from harsh sunlight or the oily fingerprints of a child robot. A plethora of mats in various colors, textures, and shapes can accent prints, and shadow boxes house treasures such as a collection of medals, a lock of football-mascot fur, or a hobo's shadow. The average cost for a custom frame ranges $50–$150, and frame sizes range from quaint 4"x6" memory-keepers to 40"x60" frames large enough to hold a life-size print of a miniature pony. After framers finish their work on-site, clients can pick up the finished piece in the store or have it shipped home.
Husband-and-wife duo Mike and Barb Priestap specialize in immortalizing cherished family memories on film. A newborn-portrait session (a $60 value), valid for children up to 12 months old, documents a family’s newest addition with high-quality images for birth announcements, scrapbooks, and proof that a baby, and not nachos, caused the belly bulge these past months. Photogenesis’s city studio hosts elegant formal portraits, and the Waterford country locale's breathtaking scenery, including a fishing pond, pine trees, and goldenrod field beautifully complement relaxed snapshots. Up to three siblings and the family pet join in the soul-stealing festivities, creating a perfect opportunity for a mantel-worthy photo of the baby all cuddled up to your school of pet piranhas.
For more than 50 years, Van Tuil Photo and Imaging has specialized in protecting, beautifying, and restoring its customers' sentimental items. Photo experts enlarge prints and digital images to new, high-resolution sizes, and restore aged photos and video to like-new condition. The shop's framers fit pictures of all shapes and sizes in custom frames and a range of colorful mats, completing most jobs in under a week. Van Tuil also specializes in preservation framing for items ranging from photos to vintage sports memorabilia.
The shutterbugs at LakeView Photography have a knack for capturing fleeting moments of genuine pathos. Whether shooting during an irreverent trash-the-dress session, capturing the quizzical look of an infant not altogether certain about her canine companion, or a framing a heartwarming family-portrait vignette, the staff’s ability to draw out moods and emotions comes in handy. The studio’s specialty is wedding and family and senior-portrait photography, and its portfolio is filled with a mix of poignant black-and-white photos and highly saturated color photos as vibrant as a freshly waxed rainbow.
