Photographer Theresa Artigas and her female staff promote a comfortable atmosphere built on guidance and support for each woman who enters their private studio for a boudoir photo shoot. A private dressing room lets guests change into sultry outfits before they pose on one of six sets. Subjects can perfect an over-the-shoulder smolder in front of a chocolate fleur de lis custom backdrop or strike a pouty pose on the pinup set, for which ladies get dolled up with smoky eyes, full lips, and lightly tousled hair. Theresa also encourages customers to bring in props that exemplify their special someone's hobby or sports team. After each session, Theresa and her team preserve their patrons' favorite images in photo albums, story books, and classic canvas wall portraits. View the studio's FAQ and testimonial pages.
In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs, and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
