Find shopping hotspots where you can finally unload that recently inherited anonymous sack with a dollar sign on it, or see what's happening around town in the Nightlife section.
The photos we leave behind may be the only way for future generations to see the styles and personalities we bear. That’s why the professional makeup artists and photographers at Glamour Shots strive to capture the true essence of a person with their shoots. Whether commemorating a milestone event or a successful trip to the grocery store, each session begins with the shop’s signature full airbrush and style makeover, which works to prevent unwanted shine while imparting a chic aesthetic. Makeup artists tailor looks to the purpose of the shoot, imparting children with a red-cheeked glow and boudoir subjects with a dark, seductive color palette.
Photographers encourage everyone to bring a few outfits and props from home, allowing them to give each photo shoot an individualized touch without snapping close-ups of their subjects’ fingerprints. Clients get to see the photos immediately so they can approve the looks and order their favorite shots in the form of pictures, phone cases, or calendars. A professional lab then prints out the chosen items using a range of color finishes—including colorization to make one color pop and the company's signature Glamour Touch retouching—onto made-to-last Kodak paper.
Home Video Studio helps shape, preserve, and enhance videos that chronicle the passage of time and the growth of families. High-quality capturing codecs transpose home movies onto digital formats, bringing outdated Betamax, 8 mm, or Super 8 into the modern age, storing first steps for posterity and adjusting the prices on childhood lemonade stands for inflation. Technicians snip and shape video to one’s whims with production and postproduction assistance on wedding videos or highlight reels for college-sports scholarships. Technicians can also collaborate with patrons to weave a This is Your Life video honoring a parent or grandparent through still photographs, archival footage, and new interviews with loved ones.
