Maria-Ines Clarke, the owner of Boudoir by Marie, lavishes her clients with a detail-oriented service that frequently starts with glasses of champagne and hair and makeup styling. After subjects pick flattering threads from the corset rack, Clarke coaches them in seductive poses and facial expressions such as pouty lips or come-hither bunny ears. Her photo packages offer a range of shoot options from one to two hours, which ultimately yield printed booklets or online galleries of approximately 80 images.
Barquin Photography, formerly Lil' People Portrait Gallery, is a studio steered by husband-wife team Carlos and Eli Barquin. As parents themselves, they know how important it is to get portraits of kids before they grow up and become surly tax accountants, so they offer clients a special Le Bebe collection. This captures pictures of kids at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months.
Carlos, the former chief photographer for Telemundo's morning show from 2000 to 2009, snaps images of the kids, and Eli, a former first-grade school teacher, wrangles them together and keeps them smiling.
Carlos and Eli work alongside Armando Pico, who shoots the studio's senior portraits and is a wedding photographer, as well as Javier Uria and Gino Reyes, the sports and school shutterbugs. Then there's Sandra Gutierrez-Uria, who retouches photos and erases immature hand gestures made by imaginary friends. Clients get to review these photos on the lobby's flat-screen TV.
JC Productions employs a team of video, audio, and event-planning experts who create media ranging from wedding photos to web designs to commercials. Professional photographers commemorate engagements or capture weddings and web designers stylize web pages. Graphic designers working in tandem with scriptwriters can pen flyers or develop the right tone to advertise a brand for a service or product.
Jady's high-quality images bridge the gap between an original portrait painted by a Renaissance master and a plain old picture. The team of talented photographers aims to establish a personal connection with subjects in order to provide an enjoyable experience and images that capture your exact spirit without stealing your soul from your body. The boutique company works with a smaller number of clients, working to tell a story through the optic magic of lenses and mirrors.
Colorful neo-pop Brittos, a baby's onesie, and even a bat. These are just a few of the things Frames USA has framed, because, as they say, they can frame anything, except for wrongfully accused civilians. In their shop, framing options are nearly endless with more than 800 samples to mix and match. With everything from basic gold frames to elegant mahogany frames, the framers enhance and preserve memories. To match those mementos with the right frame, they craft one-of-a-kind pieces or use high-quality, pre-made frames. They can even design a picture wall. Picture walls consist of myriad frames strategically placed to give a collection a more powerful impact. Gifted with artful eyes, they consult with clients to get the most aesthetically pleasing display for their items.
Jennifer Alvarez Photography specializes in capturing candid moments, transforming genuine emotion into cherishable portraits and high-resolution digital photographs. Cooing babies and canoodling lovebirds can schedule photo-snapping sessions at a site of their choosing to meet with a seasoned shutterbug. After a relaxed portrait-posing rendezvous, you’ll sift through thumbnails to find your favorite, then choose one to metamorphose into an 8"x10" print. As an added memory-memorializing bonus, portrait posers will also receive a CD stocked with up to 100 high-resolution digital images, which can be printed to adorn mantles, given as birthday gifts, or glued above bathroom sinks to replace broken mirrors.
