In near-alchemical feats, Big Frog's staff transforms customers' images, designs, or slogans into custom-printed apparel and accessories blanketed in a satisfaction guarantee. Patrons submit art digitally or in person, which staffers then scan and send along to graphic artists who tinker over designs in need of tweaking at no extra cost. Images can be emblazoned upon T-shirts and tank tops for adults and kids, or accessories such as mousepads, puzzles, and tote bags. Most items come to fruition within 24 hours, where they await their new owners for in-store pickup or shoot off into the wild blue yonder with international delivery.

The professional photographer behind Mitchelle Creations discovered at an early age that if she wasn't the force behind her identity then someone else would assign an identity to her.

She eventually focused on capturing the whimsical moments that occur when children are at play, creating fairytale-like settings complete with costumes. She quickly built up her portfolio and now shoots a variety of services such as portraits, wedding photography, and fitness photography.
