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 designers at Art Heads Custom Framing preserve portraits, paintings, collectibles, and family heirlooms. These aesthetic experts—who recently framed a pair of gloves formerly inhabited by Marilyn Monroe's hands—consult with clients to customize a frame based on clients' display preferences, the significance of the memorabilia, and whether soon-to-be-framed items might attempt escape. Using these designations, clients draw inspiration from more than 3,000 frame samples to craft frames that include such touches as decorative mouldings and UV-resistant glass.
Frame Central, where the upbeat, fun-loving staff works alongside customers preserving their artwork and keepsakes. Frame Central prides itself on its expedient one-day framing. Staffers have devoted years to learning how to craft custom frames fast without sacrificing quality. For one thing, they keep all their materials on hand, saving on time spent sending off for special orders. For another, customers can design and make the frames themselves or meet staffers halfway by allowing them to professionally cut the materials for easy home assembly.
At age 13, Teresa “T” Nora bought a Kodak Instamatic camera using money squirreled away from babysitting jobs. The pictures she snapped with that camera were just the beginning of her love affair with photography. Nearly two decades later, she's mastered the technical aspects of picture-taking, yet maintains a focus on its artistic elements.
Today, Nora shares her gift with the world through Fotos by T: the eclectic photography studio she operates out of San Jose filled with ambiance, artful props, and sexy energy. Within this studio and at on-location sites throughout the area, she and her all-woman team snap publication-worthy portraits that capture both the sexy, sensual, artful image and the essence of the subject's personality. Custom and private sexy shoots are diverse, with themes ranging from leather-and-lace sessions, sexy-fetish, or turn-of-the-century Victorian. These are ideal for all customers looking for a "sexy boost," from brides to be and same-sex partners to curvy girls and grandmothers.
She also leaves the studio to conduct on-location photo shoots, including wedding shoots where she captures candid portraits of brides, grooms, and wedding crashers. All sessions include an in-person or phone design consultation and a post-session viewing to review the images. Hair and make-up available in the beauty bar for an extra fee.
On average, the designers at Beard's Framing boast eight years of experience. Most of them come from backgrounds in art or photography, but all of them are passionate about creating frames to match their clients' personal style, décor, and artwork. It's that dedication that has helped Beard's blossom from a single shop to the eight stores within in the Northwest area. Several times throughout the year, the staff updates Beard's inventory to keep up with the latest design trends in furniture and home décor. This ensures their frames are stylish, but that doesn't mean they're not built to last, unlike constitutions written in disappearing ink. They stand behind the quality of their hand-crafted frames with a lifetime guarantee; and if you don't like your creation within 30 days, they will reframe it.
