Dove, the owner and photographer at As Cute As It Gets Portrait Design, can capture any subject in a flattering light, but a quick look at her portfolio reveals her passion is photographing giggling kids. When snapping shots of kiddos, Dove concedes that she is “shamelessly silly”—a trait she picked up while entertaining her own tykes—and capable of putting kids into fits of laughter. Dove also specializes in themed shoots, such as Little Builders, which places youngsters donning construction hats in Lilliputian workbenches, and Me and My Pet, where subjects pose with their favorite family mascot. Dove also gussies up photos with scrupulous postshoot editing.
The photos we leave behind may be the only way for future generations to see the styles and personalities we bear. That’s why the professional makeup artists and photographers at Glamour Shots strive to capture the true essence of a person with their shoots. Whether commemorating a milestone event or a successful trip to the grocery store, each session begins with the shop’s signature full airbrush and style makeover, which works to prevent unwanted shine while imparting a chic aesthetic. Makeup artists tailor looks to the purpose of the shoot, imparting children with a red-cheeked glow and boudoir subjects with a dark, seductive color palette.
Photographers encourage everyone to bring a few outfits and props from home, allowing them to give each photo shoot an individualized touch without snapping close-ups of their subjects’ fingerprints. Clients get to see the photos immediately so they can approve the looks and order their favorite shots in the form of pictures, phone cases, or calendars. A professional lab then prints out the chosen items using a range of color finishes—including colorization to make one color pop and the company's signature Glamour Touch retouching—onto made-to-last Kodak paper.
At The Pumpkin Factory, festive gourds bring an orange glow to the atmosphere, setting the scene for an exciting fall carnival. At three locations, kids leap into the air in inflatable bounce houses, converse with the goats at the petting zoo, and trot around on gentle ponies. In Corona, a special EuroBobble attraction lets guests play buoy, rolling atop a pool in a clear, inflatable bubble. At the Westminster Pumpkin Factory, helicopters take flight for scenic tours of the fairgrounds. At the end of the day, families can take home a pumpkin of their own to create a gruesome jack 'o' lantern doppelganger of their neighbor.
Pedro Gutierrez's career has taken him all over the world—from working with celebrity photographers in LA to spending time on assignment in London, Spain, and Mexico City. Throughout his travels, he has cultivated a talent for transforming everyday scenes into works of art. He now brings that same level of passion to his studio or on-location photo shoots, where he captures special events, family photographs, and portraits.
The professional photographers at Schneider Studios invite ladies to a repurposed vintage firehouse for artfully choregraphed private photoshoots in front of dozens of backdrops. During boudoir sessions, subjects don their favorite lingerie, vintage-inspired pin-up wear, or curve-embracing straightjackets and practice their best come-hither looks as a talented shutterbug flashes the camera. Great for birthdays and bachelorette parties, the girls’ night out package unites gals in Schneider’s spacious lobby outfitted with makeup stations and an area for serving bring-your-own cake and beverages. Photographers snap group pictures and individual shots amid backdrops of stained-glass windows, black walls, and retro pink couches, and pictures can share various themes such as “sexy,” “pin-up,” or “pin the tail on the donkey.” After the flashbulbs dim down, a photo-viewing session allows subjects to select their favorite snapshots for one digital image per person, or discounted bundles (not included in this Groupon).
