For Leila, Seriously Sexy Boudoir's resident shutterbug, sexiness isn't about how much skin a woman shows, but how she shows it. During one-hour boudoir and maternity boudoir sessions in a private, female-only studio, her all-women team guides guests through each pose. Whether with a suggestively arched back, pouty lips, or a flirtatious wink, the team works to ensure that every image has a sultry touch devoid of redeye, which only serves to seduce Terminators. Leila also provides top-notch lighting, impressive sets, and appropriate wardrobe suggestions to enhance the experience even more.
Afterward, Leila invites clients back for an unveiling, where they can review every image and examine samples of products that can preserve their favorite shots. Leila digitally retouches each picture in her digital darkroom before creating prints, high-resolution images, or photo albums.
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.
For decades, JCPenney Portraits has welcomed families into its friendly studios, where professional photographers expertly photograph subjects of any age. Digital cameras, professional lighting, and a wide selection of backgrounds all work together to ensure a professional, personalized look for every family portrait, school picture, business headshot, or baby announcement. To customize the session even more, the staff also encourages guests to incorporate items with special meaning such as a baby blanket or a family heirloom. From a first baby portrait to senior pictures and engagement photos, JCPenney Portraits helps to preserve special family memories to come.
After the final flash, clients and a team member head to the viewing kiosk, where they can select their photos and customize them. Beyond traditional printed portraits, memories may also be preserved on high-resolution CD, gallery wraps, wall art, or through JCPenney Portraits' archival program, which allows clients to store and share their portraits online.
BD Creative Images' primary goal is to collect and preserve cherished memories. The photographer, Brant Squirrel, captures those memories in stylistic images that employ unique angles and postproduction editing to create one-of-a-kind pictures. He works closely with families, kids, couples, and moms-to-be during shoots to ensure he adds the exact right polish to each image. Family pets can even get in on the action with pet portraiture. His skills can also be applied to special events such as birthdays and wedding receptions. Those celebrations can be enlivened with by including one of the company's photo booths, replete with a photographer, assistant, and studio lighting.
