At Little Black Dress Photography, the person behind the camera is more than a floating head. Each female photographer continuously coaches their subjects, guiding them through different come-hither poses during seductive boudoir photo shoots. The unflagging support from the shutterbugs is just one element of the studio's mission to inspire confidence in their clients. Several other amenities, including wardrobe and professional styling services, combine to transform guests into self-assured models, whose portraits make enticing gifts for significant others.
Upon their arrival, ladies will be provided with hair and makeup consultations before choosing lingerie options and outfits in sizes 0–32. Though staffers furnish thigh-high stockings, and garter belts, they also encourage clients to bring favorite items from home. Stylists can then complement new looks by imbuing hair with bounce and eyelashes with drama.
These shoots yield high-resolution pictures that typically require no retouching—the staff is more committed to enhancing natural beauty than artificially beautifying people by reshaping body parts or airbrushing out extra eyelashes.
Thanks to Baby Bump Studios, you don't have to become a teen pop idol to star in a music video in your youth; in fact, you don't even have to be born yet. That's because the studio's ultrasound packages involve not only determining the baby's gender and listening to his or her heartbeat, but also creating such commemorations of the event as framed photos and DVD recordings set to music. It's all made possible by the center's real-time 3-D ultrasound equipment, which displays a realistic image of the baby moving about and mouthing the word “claustrophobia.” The studio's photographers can also capture black-and-white or color portraits of expectant mothers, newborns, or whole families.
There is no one size fits all when it comes to boudoir photography. That's why before every shoot, the all-female crew at Little Secret Studio conducts personal consultations, during which clients discuss photo packages, settle on their ideal aesthetic, and plan their shoot for a professional studio setting, an outdoor location, or the silky sheets of a luxury hotel. On the day of the shoot, clients may go through two to six outfits and up to two different hairstyles, all furnished by Little Secret Studio's professional styling team. Under professional guidance, clients pose in provocative, flattering angles as the photographer snaps vivid color or black-and-white shots of solo women or couples. Clients preview their shots one or two weeks after the shoot and can opt for their retouched images in the form of a disc, print, canvas and/or Little Secret Black Book.
Though boudoir photography is the studio’s specialty, Lifestyle Portrait packages are available to capture life's more PG moments.
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, picture perfect clients pose in the bright camera room, smiling amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following the photo shoot, 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 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 photographers at Photo Perfections bring fantasies to life with costume-clad portraiture set to digitally imposed fantasy backdrops. Kids and pregnant women masquerading as angels or fairies are transported to the clouds or magical forests. The enhanced photos are then available on postcards, prints, and calendars.
The photographers at Attraction Studio doll up subjects before subjects make their debut in front of the flashing lights. Both the West Covina and Arcadia locations employ professional makeup and hair artists for family, boudoir, or maternity shoots that shuffle backdrops and allow two to three wardrobe changes. Personal items, such as a basketball, guitar, or piece of lint—brought along as props—add a touch of personality to the 25–50 photos snapped at the shoot. After the session, a computerized slideshow parades the fresh snapshots so that customers can nominate their favorites for prints and retouching. Pictures gain an aesthetic lift from Magic Touch, which enables photographers to remove wrinkles, blemishes, and third eyes.
