Effectively capturing significant moments on film is a specialized art form, which can go unrecognized if not displayed well. To help their clients showcase their treasured memories in sophisticated arrangements, Photograph & Frame’s staff developed a system they call “modular picture framing.” This system cuts on cost, using a premade selection of framing goods. Clients can mix and match standardized museum-quality mats and frames, which are all-wood and locally made, to create design-magazine-worthy photo wallscapes. The staff also preserves photos with custom-framing options, cutting mats and forming frames to fit especially large family photos and snapshots that spill into the fifth dimension.
They’ve also curated a selection of photographs from local artists and archives to help patrons decorate their homes in sweeping seascapes and bustling city streets. To ensure the photos’ quality and level of detail, most of the images are developed in a darkroom on Fuji Crystal Archive papers.
Madame et Monsieur's non-invasive, FDA-approved ElectroSlim technology helps clients get buff. Electrodes attached to the target area deliver electronic pulses that stimulate more than 1,000 muscle contractions in a single one-hour session. The soothing procedure feels like a deep-tissue massage, but delivers the muscle-building results of a serious sweat session. ElectroSlim can tone specific areas that normal exercise doesn't reach as well as burning away excess amounts of fat, redefining the client's overall body shape.
Harnessing his well-trained eye, owner and artist Jeff Hernandez crafts custom art dwellings in his combination gallery and framing center. Whether working with a photograph, prestigious diploma, or painting of a prestigious diploma, his team of framing specialists can pair customers' items with just the right materials, colors, and design styles. A basic 16"x20" frame starts at about $150, though prices vary depending on materials used. To keep keepsakes protected against the elements, customers may opt for acid-free materials and UV glass ($180 for a 16"x20" frame) or museum-quality wares ($230 for a 16"x20" frame) with crystal-clear glass that is impervious to glare and pretentious commentary.
Heather Lussier admits she used to prefer cats. That changed when her six-year-old son begged her for a puppy. Enter Kali, a beagle named after the Hindu goddess of destruction and who relished living up to that name. But after some training for both Heather and Kali, the beagle became the most behaved member of the family. Not long after, Heather added to the pack by adopting two rescues.
It didn’t take long for Heather to incorporate her newfound puppy love into her profession. She is one of fewer than 2,500 certified professional photographers worldwide, with credentials such as photographing the Dalai Lama and having her work exhibited exclusively in the Adobe Animal Hospital. When she isn’t commanding humans to “sit,” “stay,” and “roll over” for magazine-quality photo shoots, Heather serves as the principle photographer at Posh Pooch Portraits, capturing vivid, close-up images of beloved animals through in-studio and on-location shoots. A devoted yoga practitioner, Heather demonstrates calm, centered energy to earn pets’ trust and bring out their most photogenic sides. She treats every shot as a piece of fine art, offering printing and framing services to turn every image into an heirloom.
The proficient framers at Art Frame Studio employ high-quality framing materials and seldom-used techniques to efficiently preserve photographs and documents. Using rice paper and wet-paste mounting techniques, they evenly mount scrolls and other delicate objects. In addition to prints and photos, they encapsulate puzzles, needlepoint work, and keepsakes within sleek shadowbox frames. Employing museum-approved materials and conservation framing techniques, they mount historically significant documents on archival-quality matting to ensure a stable framing job, minimal exposure of the work to adhesives, and protection from studious insects.
The portfolios of Elite Capture’s photographers are filled with moody, cinematic scenes, ranging from a karate-kicking family in midair to a fashionably dressed woman roping a crescent moon. The studio excels at these types of compositions, positioning subjects under theatrical lighting in locations with striking backgrounds, rich colors, and naturally occurring green smoke. This artistic approach has caught the eye of famous clients such as Ludacris, the Black Eyed Peas, and LMFAO, all of whom have posed for Elite Capture shoots. The photographers give the same star treatment to their everyday clients, whose images are preserved on products including aluminum prints, custom greeting cards, and coffee-table books.
