Kesha Lambert Photography and the AboutFace Makeup Artist Network teamed up to create Lash to Lens, a one-stop shop for customized portraiture and modern lifestyle photography. Published in the New York Times, Boston Herald, and OK! magazine, Kesha Lambert and her supporting cast of savvy shutterbugs create a relaxed and fun environment for capturing life’s most memorable moments, whether it be a candid family photo, a sizzling boudoir portrait, or a reproduction of The Last Supper starring a litter of beagles. Each session is tailored to the client’s style and personality, incorporating clever props and interesting locales to create a customized photo shoot as unique as the subjects it snaps. AboutFace’s senior makeup artist, Charlene Armstrong, uses top-quality beauty products to hide blemishes, eliminate shine, conceal red eyes, and distract attention from obtrusive bunny ears, resulting in camera-ready countenances.

To restore balance to their clients' body and minds, the team at Parapsychology & Wellness Center draws on many disciplines, including reiki therapy, aura purification, and astrology. Staff members also perform many types of readings. For instance, they might use tarot cards to look 6–12 months into the future, draw on numerology to reveal lucky numbers, or administer a character reading to help clients learn more about themselves, like whether or not they can actually lick their elbow.
