At Little Black Dress Photography, the person behind the camera is more than a floating head. Each female photographer continuously coaches their subjects, guiding them through different come-hither poses during seductive boudoir photo shoots. The unflagging support from the shutterbugs is just one element of the studio's mission to inspire confidence in their clients. Several other amenities, including wardrobes and professional styling services, combine to transform guests into self-assured models, whose portraits make enticing gifts for significant others.
Upon their arrival, ladies can peruse a fully stocked closet of lingerie and 1940s-style pin-up outfits in sizes 0–22. Though staffers furnish polka-dot dresses, thigh-high stockings, and garter belts, they also encourage clients to bring favorite items from home. Stylists can then complement new looks by imbuing hair with bounce and eyelashes with drama, prepping patrons to cast flirty glances from velvet couches or atop vintage suitcases.
These shoots yield high-resolution pictures that typically require little to no retouching—the staff is more committed to enhancing natural beauty than artificially beautifying people by reshaping body parts or airbrushing out extra eyelashes.

Thanks to Baby Bump Studios, you don't have to become a teen pop idol to star in a music video in your youth; in fact, you don't even have to be born yet. That's because the studio's ultrasound packages involve not only determining the baby's gender and listening to his or her heartbeat, but also creating such commemorations of the event as framed photos and DVD recordings set to music. It's all made possible by the center's real-time 3-D ultrasound equipment, which displays a realistic image of the baby moving about and mouthing the word “claustrophobia.” The studio's photographers can also capture black-and-white or color portraits of expectant mothers, newborns, or whole families.
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, picture perfect clients pose in the bright camera room, smiling amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following the photo shoot, 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 offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
