This week may bring Michael Kors and Bebe, and next week could feature Ann Taylor and Seven, but no matter when someone stops in Eye of the Beholder Consignments, items from high-profile brands can be found on the shelves. Handbags may carry names such as Prada, Coach, and Juicy Couture, and clothing may hail from Talbots, Chico's, and Coldwater Creek. The shop also stocks shoes, business suits, and maternity wear for expectant mothers and dudes who just want to get closer to their children by dressing as a nanny. A portion of proceeds goes to charities such as the Baltimore Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.

Durell, the owner of Flawless Videos & Photos, has built his business on making it easier for hosts to plan parties and weddings. It's with this in mind that he created packages that charge by the whole event, as opposed to an hourly rate, and that cover both photography and videography as well as editing services. In addition to his event services, he organizes family portraits, assembles photo albums, and edits out any evidence of Bigfoot from onsite photo shoots.
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.
You don't need to squeeze into The Prop Stop Photo Booth. Thanks to the booth's open-style setup, wedding and party guests have more space to strut into the frame and strike a pose for a shot that will freeze the celebratory moment in time. When event hosts rent the photo booth, an attendant comes along for the ride, standing beside the machine for the duration of the rental to help guests pick a seamless background color and sort through a variety pack of colorful boas, novelty glasses, and prop hats. By the end of the evening, the booth will have captured a black-and-white or color record of party guests that paraded before the camera lens between slow dances and auto-tuned wedding toasts.
Although framing a Facebook photo sounds like an exercise in futility, National Photo’s technicians bridge the gap between the online and offline world by printing digital images on high-quality photo paper. They can also print photos in diverse formats onto greeting cards, posters, and collages, or emblazon snapshots onto iPhone cases. Additionally, the studio’s photographers snap their own images, capturing families, children, and even pets against simple backdrops rather than at parks or on the beach, where attention-seeking wildlife might try to steal the camera and shoot the pictures themselves.
