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.

Alongside stock and custom frames of wood, metal, and lacquer, hundreds of matting options give dimension to encased diplomas, family portraits, or parking tickets.

The husband-and-wife pair also stocks the shop's gallery with the works of local artists, including Barbara's own golf-theme artwork, which grants everlasting views of the scenic golf courses in the Pacific Northwest.

With her relaxed shooting style, Suzzi Richardson has spent more than 10 years with her eye behind the camera, coaxing sultry smiles and ebullient grins from even the shyest of subjects. Throughout the course of each private shoot, held within her 1,600-square-foot studio, Suzzi works to make clients feel secure so that they can confidently channel their inner sirens for boudoir shoots, get dolled up for flirty pinup sessions, or duct tape their shadow into a flattering pose during portrait shoots.
Before of many sessions, Suzzi styles hair and makeup and throws open the studio's wardrobe, allowing patrons to peruse a vast selection of clothing, sets, and props. Though her photographic forte rests largely in the realm of pinup and boudoir, Suzzi also brings her diverse talents to bear while capturing shots of weddings and children as well. Once shoots have come to a close, she sets to work retouching the images, erasing imperfections while working to ensure that each subject’s personality still shines through.
