Glamour Shots made its name as a place where women could be transformed into models and immortalized in photographs. Though makeup, hair, and wardrobe services are still available with each session, Glamour Shots now offers portraiture for individuals of any gender as well as families, children, and houseplants. Unique personalities shine in Glamour Shots’s galleries, which depict everything from children with airbrushed angel wings to women clad in lingerie. Digital images can be transformed into a number of prints and products, including wall art and graduation announcements. Glamour Shots guarantees clients’ satisfaction or it will retake portraits without a session fee or exchange poses for a small additional fee within 14 days.
Photographic Concepts' two experienced photographers frame, compose, and capture wall-worthy memories, employing classic lighting and tasteful backdrops. The flash-popping fiesta begins with a creative consultation, where clients can question the lens-wielders about backgrounds, props, and the color coordination of matching vegetable costumes, ensuring a smooth photo-snapping soiree. Gather the immediate family together for a 60-minute in-studio photo shoot, or let wizened high-schoolers go stag for senior portraits (a $75 value). Maternity pictures can showcase a mom-to-be's blossoming belly, and a new-baby photo invites infants to preen, primp, and pole-vault to glamorous stardom.
Hour-long photo sessions with Montenero's sensualist shutterbugs yield tasteful, alluring images. Sprightly retro pin-ups recall a time when exposed knees were thought to incite Communism, while more concupiscent boudoir photos awaken subjects' latent sultriness while they pout, preen, and lounge in lingerie. Budding vixens can choose between either a shoot at the photographers' Lawrenceville studio or one within the comfort of their own homes, finally unlocking the eroticism lurking within old leather recliners or double-basin bathroom sinks. Basic retouching services are included with the deal, which is personalized according to each subject's areas of confidence and results in an 8"x10" print.
Marvelous Light Studios staff specializes in capturing more than what meets the eye—love and hope, for example, during an engagement session set in a park, or the sense of accomplishment radiating from a senior portrait. Even the titles of the studio's photo packages imply that photography can go beyond the visual. Family photo shoots are part of "The Heritage" sessions, whereas "The Legacy" package showcases an individual's unique character and talents.
Having been behind the lens for more than 28 years, Marvelous Light Studio's photographers have mastered the art of both indoor and outdoor photography. Services range from capturing and editing actor's headshots in the studio to documenting weddings and other parties in a photojournalistic style. This approach encourages natural candid moments and brings emotion to the final, retouched print. The studio can also photograph children, expectant mothers, and couples in their prom attire, who can use the pictures as a better keepsake than a clown-corsage that sprays water at their date.
Terry Bratton's photography business had an unassuming start in 1988: as a college student, he snapped Polaroids of his classmates, charging them $1 to take them home. Since then, Bratton has certainly added more skills to his portfolio. He specializes in event and portrait photography and counts authors, models, fashion and jewelry designers, and choreographers among his many clients.
As CNN Medical Correspondent Judy Fortin discovered during her visit to Atlanta, PoleLaTeaz's flirty-fitness classes encourage self-confidence as much as toned muscles. Studio owner Angela Edwards and her staff of experienced instructors—which includes international pole dancing champion Heidi Coker— lead sultry sessions that range from introductory pole dancing to suspended yoga. Each class retains an all-female roster to further promote a comfortable environment. Before participants learn routines consisting of swings, swivels, and uncanny imitations of flagpoles, they also work to gain agility by practicing Pilates stretches.
