During boudoir and glamour shoots, women strike sultry poses with female photographers under artfully arranged lighting, rotating through different outfits and getting primped by onsite hairstylists and makeup artists. Afterward, the team retouches shots to erase any blemishes or photo-bombing ghosts.

Matthew Turri traces his interest in photography all the way back to his birth in Rochester, New York, which is also home to the headquarters of Kodak. It would appear that some Kodachrome bonded with his DNA, as he focused heavily on picture-taking in high school, eventually pursuing photojournalism at the University at Albany-SUNY. Since then, Turri aimed his aperture as an intern for the New York legislature, a staff photographer for a daily newspaper, and a freelancer for numerous weddings and events. Now in full command of his own prowess, Turri lends his services to families romping in the sand and superstitious brides and grooms sharing drinks on the opposite sides of a door.
Target Portrait Studios are operated by professional photographers who aim to help you capture special moments. The studios can be decorated for most any type of shoot, whether you're celebrating a mom-to-be, a graduation, or an upcoming holiday. Subjects also have the opportunity to choose their own backdrops or props, and they can even bring in their favorite toy or invisible friend. The customization doesn't end with the shoot, though?digital files can be personalized with borders, designs, and quotes and then printed in a variety of sizes.
Weeks before expectant moms meet their bundle of joy, the ultrasound technicians at Baby's 1st Appearance give them a glimpse into motherhood. Their elective 3D and 4D sonograms work like radar in the womb, emitting sound waves into the belly that bounce back and, based on return time, generate an image of soon-to-be sons or daughters. Parents can memorialize the session long after their baby's first birthday with photos (black-and-white, color, or 3D color) or DVDs of the sonogram's findings.
Within Striking Poses' studio, clients can travel anywhere—the beach, say, or back in time to the glamorous era of early Hollywood. To set these scenes, Striking Poses' team relies on its selection of detailed backdrops, as well as soft boxes that conjure dramatic lighting effects. That said, the studio also accommodates sessions in a naturally lit outdoor space—whether it be for modeling shoots, family portrait sessions, or passport photos. As each photo is snapped, it appears on the studio's 27-inch monitor, allowing clients to better adjust the shoot around their personal visions. To preserve those visions, Striking Poses' crew creates a variety of products, including canvas wraps and and enlargements.
