FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.

Lifelong artist Kristi Sutton Elias has dabbled in mediums as diverse as drawing and sculpture. But she loves photography and Photoshop because she can merge all her creative influences into a single visually inventive image. Her process begins either outdoors or at her studio, which overlooks the Queen Mary cruise ship. During each session, the award-winning photographer helps all her clients strike their most flattering pose. A week after the photo session, clients look over more than 100 of their portraits during viewing/ordering parties, which Kristi livens up with complimentary champagne, wine, snacks, and confetti cannons. Afterward, she creates her masterpiece portraits by compiling her shots in Photoshop and creating dramatic, filmic images, such as youngsters paddling through stormy seas. She preserves her final pieces on gallery wraps, as well as with products such as customized memory boxes, which hold more than 20 portraits.

A good portrait photographer looks through the lens not with their own eyes, but with their client's. The shutterbugs at Caught in the Moment Photography pride themselves on this ability, switching easily from a magazine-friendly commercial style to more journalistic-style portraits for shoots with families or kids. They also put together carefully-orchestrated studio shots that are ideal for maternity, newborn, and boudoir shoots that require a little privacy and staging. Examples of their work can be found on many magazine covers, such as Women & Industry, Orange Magazine, and In Home. Their wedding shots exemplify the other end of the spectrum, with a combination of candidly caught smiles, cleverly staged group shots, and stunning pictures of the venue itself wearing a bridesmaid's dress.

It wasn't until college that Tiffaney Vazquez discovered her passion for photography as a professional pursuit. Soon after graduating, she enrolled in more courses at the Art Institute of California, mastering the skills and techniques she's exercised as a freelance shutterbug for the last five years. She tailors her shooting style to each subject, equally game to dramatically light seductive male and female boudoir poses or roll around with families playing in the park. Tiffaney's sessions—which also accommodate kids, engaged couples, and weddings—result in each client's choice of digital images and prints.
