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. The staff 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.

These classes range in physical intensity, from dynamic power yoga sessions held within a heated practice space to more tranquil classes that emphasize meditation and mindful breathing exercises instead of demanding asana sequences.
If yoga alone can't help visitors find the relief they seek, Yoga + Herbs also offers a variety of ayurvedic and naturopathic treatments intended to alleviate painful conditions by jump-starting the body's natural healing processes. Bodywork sessions?including everything from reiki therapy and reflexology to cranio-sacral massage and neuromuscular therapy?can help support these efforts as they target the sites of withheld stress and tension.

For ailments related to injury and sleeping on tables without face holes, Dr. Singhvi administers soothing massage therapy.

Jeff?s individual and group sessions yield upward of 50 images, which he retouches in Photoshop, previews for patrons, and dispenses as digital images all on the same day as the shoot. In addition to capturing new memories, Jeff restores older ones with photo repairs, digitization services, and DVD slideshows that set up to 150 pictures to each customer?s favorite pop song or whale call.
