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.

The Coury family has been adorning Pittsburgh's bedrooms since 1950, when the first Coury Furniture opened its doors. Since 1988, Mattress World has carried on the family tradition of quality with a selection of more than 20 mattress brands, including Simmons, Sealy, and Tempur-Pedic, in more than 100 styles. Factory-trained sales associates escort guests to cushions that fulfill their needs in terms of firmness, durability, size, and ability to withstand being dropped off a 10-story building. In addition to traditional innerspring and memory-foam mattresses, customers choose from a selection of waterbeds, futons, and iron and brass frames. Accessories such as bedding-protection kits help shield mattresses from bed bugs, dust mites, and allergens while preventing already-counted sheep from nibbling the sheets.
Just as doctors keep instrumental parts of the body healthy, the Gillece Services team keeps essential components of the home working safely and efficiently. Instead of working on hearts and brains, though, the company's steady-handed technicians operate on heating, cooling, plumbing, and electrical units.
Their commitment to customer satisfaction stems from founder Tom Gillece, who started the business in 1980 and has since integrated his son Tom Gillece, Jr. into a leadership role. In the company’s more than three decades, the team, under the Gillece family's guidance, has made urgency a top priority. That means they're available when needed most, including on weekends, on holidays, and during breakups. Gillece Services also aspires to make a positive impact on its community and on the world; the company even sent one of its plumbers on a relief mission to Haiti after the earthquake in 2010.
