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.
Photographer Omar Mena captures natural expressions and genuine rapport during shoots held in his studio or offsite. His meticulous coverage can document special days, such as weddings or quinceañeras, as well as relaxed moments between loved ones, such as when engaged couples simultaneously decide to take a catnap. After shoots, Mena transforms his footage into professional-quality prints, DVD slideshows, and photo albums for subjects to cherish.
Professional portraits have come a long way. Gone are the days of fist-on-chin pseudo seriousness and comically fake backgrounds. Digital-imaging pros today, like April Melton, know that natural poses in real places make long-lasting memories.
Tote up to five other people and your most elusive poses to the studio, and Ayer Eternal's passionate, knowledgeable shutterbug, Luis C. Rodriguez, will capture them in a careful one-hour chase. Rodriguez's extensive experience includes but is not limited to shooting a cover for Latinitas magazine, being a featured artist on fashions.org, and photographing the Miss Texas Latina beauty pageant. He will use imaginative techniques and a lifetime partnership with light to confine your memories from the most winsome angles. After the shoot, Rodriguez will prepare your chosen photos backstage with digital proofing before printing them with fine inks on fine papers. The prints leave walls and wallets with a fresh yield of bright, crisp sentimental currency that's bound to last longer than regular currency—all Ayer Eternal's prints are guaranteed for life.
