Picture this: an album full of perfectly art-directed, spontaneous snapshots of your kids without a khaki pant/denim shirt combo in sight.
Let PhotoOp, the UWS’s newest photography studio, expose you to a higher level of family pictures. Under the creative direction of Brian Marcus, PhotoOp specializes in both modern and classic family photography using shutterbugs who’ve worked for the likes of Cookie and Vogue Bambini.
An on-staff stylist sources a “sample closet” for endless wardrobe changes (pink tutus, jean jackets, jewels), so your kids will look “I-didn’t-even-try” camera ready without even trying.
Add to that a colorful mix of backdrops, a custom graffiti wall by noted artist Andre Charles, and opportunities to photo-customize everything from cuff links to totes — and there’s not a chance of looking bad.
PhotoOp, 442 Columbus Avenue, at 81st Street (212-362-1911 or photoopnyc.com), $150-$500.
