Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
Although Create a Frame / Handworks Gallery began as a designer framing store, works of art have wriggled their way off the walls and onto the shop floor, where 3-D pieces complement the flat compositions framers nestle beneath glass, mats, and moulding. Helmed by husband-and-wife team Wendy and Steven Denenberg for more than 30 years, the white custom-framing counter offsets a wall of frame samples from brands such as Adhisa and Roma, which encircle pieces of any size alongside flattering mats and glass to protect against passing impressionists. Tactile objets d'art dapple the rest of the gallery space with the colors of hand-hewn artisanal furniture, sparkling jewelry, and glass bowls, vases, and ceilings crafted by American and international artists.:m]]
Established in 1832, J.J. Gillespie Gallery furnishes its walls with a wide range of art from American and international artists. In an attached workshop, a master framer meticulously preserves keepsakes inside custom wood or metal frames. The gallery also hosts an onsite art expert, who can appraise oil-based works or clean and restore them to their former luster.
Ace Paints & Furniture’s staff of color-matching experts and trained designers assist clients in their searches for home-decorating solutions through a wide selection of premium paints.

Ralph Lauren paints in suede and metallic finishes line shelves alongside high-traffic area coatings from Daich, which simulate the sturdy look of brick and stone. Outdoor furnishings such as adirondack chairs and porch swings provide a place to rest on sunny days so visitors can avoid splinters caused by tree-stump seating.
Typhoon Lighting especially specializes in everything light related: repair services, refurbished antique lighting fixtures, and classic and contemporary new designs to lustrously illuminate any roost. The company's domestic fixtures include pendants, chandeliers, sconces, and lamps that, when nicely light-bulbed, scare ghosts and shed light on ping-pong balls' hidden hideaways (prices vary, depending on limited items and specialty lines). Luxurious lampshades are available to enhance any immodest bare bulb ($30 to $50 on average). The radiant retailer also stocks a wide selection of accessories, including finials and hard-to-find antique bulbs (average $50–$200). If you already have an item that needs fixing or you would like to have a unit customized or embellished with a handmade lampshade, Typhoon's friendly, experienced staff is also eager to lend a hand ($70/hour). All repair and fabrication services are done in-house by highly skilled craftspeople, ensuring special attention and glowing service.
