jcpenney portraits' professional photographers capture paramount moments in premier lighting with high-tech digital cameras and a choice of vivid background images. After clients discuss pose preferences with their portraitist, subjects take the stage for approximately 10 minutes of flashing bulbs, bright smiles, and focused lenses. Following the shoot, customers and friendly photogs pore over digital frames to select which pictures are worthy of being immortalized onto six single-image enhanced sheets in a variety of sizes; customers can choose a different pose for each photo sheet, for a total of six poses. Customers receive one 10”x13”, two 8”x10”, two 5”7”, four 3.5”x5”, eight wallet-size, and one specialty-size (10”x10” or smaller) Be Squared portrait, all of which are ready to be wall-mounted alongside each other in a courageous declaration of self-love. A CD with one high-resolution image is also included. Customers may take an additional 40% off any purchases made that day.
