Glamour Shots made its name as a place where women could be transformed into models and immortalized in photographs. Though makeup, hair, and wardrobe services are still available with each session, Glamour Shots now offers portraiture for individuals of any gender, as well as families, children, and houseplants. Unique personalities shine in Glamour Shots’ galleries, which depict everything from children with airbrushed angel wings to women clad in lingerie. Digital images can be transformed into a number of prints and products, including wall art and graduation announcements. Glamour Shots guarantees clients’ satisfaction, or it will re-take portraits without a session fee, or exchange poses for a small additional fee within 14 days.

In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs, and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
