The all-female staff at ultra-spective's Haute Pink division snap sexy shots of models during 30-minute boudoir photo shoots. Before the photographic frenzy, guests confer with the professional photographers to discuss desired mood, backdrops, and tips for circumventing shyness. Once inside the 2,000-square-foot studio, portrait sitters receive 10 minutes of wardrobe styling assistance before sauntering before the camera for 20 minutes of flirtatious winks and why-did-you-wake-me-up bedroom eyes. From all this sultry strutting, photographers capture seven magazine-quality images, which models return several days later to review in a theater-style screening room. Each subject's final airbrushed image is then transfixed onto textured linen paper coated with UV protection to safeguard it from the effects of too much sunbathing. See here for FAQs.
After the disappointment of being unable to afford a photo booth at their own wedding, the husband-and-wife duo behind Moments To Memories Photo Booth Rentals decided to help others enjoy the silly and sweet snapshots that cement celebrations in people’s memories. Today they dispatch booths that fit up to 15 subjects and prop boxes that overflow with floppy hats, bright sunglasses, and vintage props and picture frames. Throughout each event, a professional attendant remains on hand, aiding guests to ensure a smooth, fun experience as they add personalized text blurbs and create color or black-and-white prints that they can take away just 10 seconds after the flash. Customers can also acquire a USB drive with digital copies of the images and order additional prints online as well as memory books for showing to future generations or brides who hit their heads on the way out of the reception hall.
Dr. Ronald T. Weiland doesn’t “believe in fad diets,” as he notes on his website. Rather, he trusts in simple mathematics: fewer ingested calories plus more burned calories equals weight loss. At Ameri-Cal Weight Clinic, he and his staff put this equation into practice during comprehensive weight-loss programs that rely on healthful foods, aerobic exercise, and prescribed appetite suppressants. This mix of support, services, and tools is readily available at eight clinic locations throughout the Bay Area and one that only appears on leap years.
