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.
For more than 25 years, photographer Ben Dang has told stories through his portraits. He uses a photojournalistic approach to shoot weddings, special events, and mothers making their deli-robbing sons return the sandwich, capturing the small, candid moments he says “usually go unnoticed.” However, Ben can also take more posed family portraits to capture a relaxed moment between couples, parents and a new baby, or extended families gathered into the frame.:m]]
Even Al Torres’ lightly posed shots exude the aura of candid photography, capturing close-ups of wide-eyed babies, carefree frames of expectant mothers, and black-and-white shots of the raw human form in an editorial style that landed him Best of Citysearch awards in 2006 and 2007. Peering through high-caliber Nikon lenses, Al cultivates winsome smiles within his studio, using a combination of natural and studio lighting to accentuate eye color and play down tattooed-on five o’clock shadows. After sessions, subjects can view the shots online or as contact sheet proofs and decide which prints to transform into custom photo albums, copyright-released digital images, or gallery wall prints.:m]]

Hungary, 1964: Viktor's grandparents first looked through the lens of a camera and saw their future as professional photographers. Dallas, 2013: Viktor carries on that vision as a third-generation photographer, snapping shots under the banner of Zalafoto USA. "[I] grew up spending many hours a day in [the] photo studio, where I learned my people skills," Viktor says, tying his ability to put clients as their ease to his success at creating charming, naturalistic portraits. He photographs his subjects at every stage of life, in-studio or on-location. Viktor captures the first smiles of newborns in cribs, the dual grins of couples on their wedding days, and the multiplied beaming expressions of parents and children as they pose for in- and outdoor portraits. He also turns his eye toward inanimate objects, snapping product photography of jewelry, furniture, and husbands for sale.
