Sylvia Sepulveda became enamored with vintage pin-up photography because of the props. A frequent thrift-store shopper, she had planned to start a blog about her purchases but found that taking and editing their pictures was more satisfying than writing the posts. She turned her lens onto human subjects shortly thereafter and now generates inventive and sensual snapshots at Indie Girl Photography. Sylvia doesn't shy away from whimsical impulses both during and after her shoots. Based on the dialogue between her and the client, she suggests poses that can result in simple, flirtatious portraits or playful, old-timey advertisements. Her retouching finesse then works two types of magic, serving to add backdrops—ranging from a retro kitchen scene to a patriotic battleground—as well as remove sources of insecurity, including blemishes, stretch marks, and mismatched shoes. She deftly adjusts lighting and angles to flatter clients of all body types, and she pairs outfits that clients bring from home with her own stock of accessories, such as a vintage aviator hat or a video camera.
Apart from her boudoir-style shots, she experiments with fantasy and alternative styles. Her galleries display models cast as robots, angels, and superheroes, among other supernatural roles.
Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.

Though her career began in model photography, Graciela Torres always photographed boudoir portraits on the side. She loved how capturing women’s sensual sides and personality quirks in the same image often resulted in a profoundly positive change in how they felt about themselves—and from her skyrocketing clientele, it's clear that they loved it too. In both modes of her work, Graciela uses her energetic personality to keep sessions upbeat and fun while her artistic instincts capture subjects at their most authentic.
