The photography studio at Photonation captures twosomes, kids, and multifarious groups with professional equipment and flattering lighting. During the half-hour in-studio session, lens masters refine the chosen pose and ensure that no over-achieving mayoral candidates are hogging the frame in order to capture graduation pictures, family portraits, and headshots. Using Chromakey technology, photographers can employ digital trickery and cinematic green screens to place subjects in familiar and inventive backgrounds of their choice. After the shoot, camera artisans touch up images with professional airbrushing and other enhancements. Charges may apply for special touch-up requests, such as googly eyes or additional noses. The session’s perfected pose yields one 11”x14” print, one 8”x10” print, and two 5”x7” prints.

Michael St. Clair Fine Cleaners demonstrate a dedication to environmentally sound garment-cleansing practices through the use of eco-friendly cleaning products. In an effort to further reduce their impact upon the earth’s surface, each facility recycles hangers and uses reusable garment bags which function as laundry bags in an effort to keep them out of landfills and on the path to being invited to the same dinner parties as clothing. No stain is a match for the technicians, who evict grime from all manner of items.
The staff at Lavar Spa know that colon cleansing is a personal, delicate matter. That’s why they’ve equipped each of their treatment rooms with fully automated cleansing systems. In complete privacy, clients undergo colon hydrotherapy, which flushes waste and toxins from the body with a gentle stream of water. During the procedure, they can watch television, read, or nap. Wafting aromatherapy candles, an airy color scheme, and plush treatment tables whisk away minds more effectively than a mad scientist practiced in sleight of hand. Afterward, most patients report feeling lighter and more relaxed, but hydrotherapy can also mute abdominal pain, headaches, and constipation.
