Entering one of The Framing Establishment's locations is like walking into an art gallery. Large traditional landscapes and contemporary abstracts hang on the walls, and shadow boxes housing portraits and collectibles line the shelves. Amid this modern decor, professional framers scuttle about, sizing objects and answering customers' questions. They help their patrons pick out ready-made frames and art or consult with them to determine flattering custom mouldings and mats for their photos or most impressive parking tickets. They also help customers transform their TVs into works of art by providing frames and fabrics that complement home furnishings.

Rather than churning out an assembly line of one-note family portraits, photographer Jennifer creates a mood for each session based on her clients’ personal dynamics. That means possibly moving shoots outdoors before unique scenery or shooting in front of a spot that’s special to the subjects. She also turns the lens onto newborns, often following their growth up through high-school graduation. Among Jennifer’s specialties is wedding photography, during which she captures each important moment of a couple’s day as she tags along from pre-ceremony prep to the traditional closing cake fight.
