The Boudoir Divas want to make the "ultimate supermodel experience" accessible to every woman, and the website's testimonial page offers happily tearful proof of that mission's success. For example, client Susan wanted to shed her everyday style for a day of flashbulbs and glamour. She starts her anecdote by describing the consultation she had in the jazzy, girly dressing room, and finishes her story by confessing that when she saw her prints, she cried. Susan described the experience as life-changing, saying, "it was just one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Second to my wedding."

Creating these unforgettable experiences is an all-female staff of photographers, makeup artists, and image editors, who run a 6,500-square-foot studio that houses a dressing room, more than 16 sets, and an area to review subjects' proofs. Spangled with vanity lights, the crimson dressing room is lined with a wall of shoes, and opposite, a wardrobe rack is strewn with leopard print, tulle, fringe, and lace, offering a variety of mix-and-match outfit choices. Numerous packages are available, and the Divas' portfolio is divided into Romantic, Supermodel Sassy, Fine Art, and Simply Beautiful categories.

The craftspeople at Art & Framing by Munro Gallery draw on more than 45 years of experience as they frame cherished items and curate fine arts and crafts. With skillful hands, they swaddle artwork, diplomas, memorabilia, and photos using elements plucked from an arsenal of more than 2,500 mouldings and 1,000 mat samples. When they aren't adorning pictures with princely garb, they stock their shelves with paintings, sculptures, and jewelry that give residences and outfits more personality than Elton John’s herd of peacocks.

Aztec Graphics has adorned keepsakes and decorated bare walls with stylish prints for more than a quarter of a century. Preserve cherished memories behind the glass of a ready-made frame, in sizes ranging from 4"x6" to 30"x40" and styles from ornamental to classic black ($5–$38). Bring in a favorite football jersey, an artistic tapestry, or a pillow with a particularly expressive drool mark and let the expert framers guide you through a myriad of custom framing options, including hundreds of moulding, mat, and glass varieties ($29.95+). Those with empty walls and no memories prior to two seconds ago can search through an array of posters to find an image to claim as their past ($5+). More than 4,000 images of tropical beaches, musicians, movies, and art reproductions will provide ample inspiration for decoration schemes, and a smattering of work from local artists will provoke thoughtful conversations between your walls and your load-bearing maypole.

The talented photographers at Aquario Studio artfully capture treasured memories in the cozy confines of the beautiful, naturally lit Point Loma studio. During a 45-minute, in-studio session, models can feel free to test out newly trademarked poses or simply allow the professional shutterbugs to pose brand-new babies, graduating high-school seniors, or favorite four-legged friends. After shoots, clients return to the studio about 10 days later for a private viewing premier, in which they can select the most glamorous image and use the included discount to have it framed, canvas-wrapped, or sent to the DMV via carrier pigeon.

Ray Street Custom Framing owner Michelle Robinson stuffs her store with one-of-a-kind picture holders. Cosset a canvas in Peruvian-leather or hand-forged metal mouldings ($40–$100/foot), or opt for a basic black-wood frame ($10/foot) to shelter a particularly eye-catching parking ticket. Prices vary, but $100 can usually get a basic 11”x14” frame with a single mat and glass, a 16”x20” frame with glass but no mat, or an imaginary frame with a zillion invisible mats. A trained artist herself, Robinson hosts a stop on the Ray at Night Art Walk on the second Saturday of every month, showcasing work by local artists that she has custom-framed.
