eMotion Portraits Studios in Huntington Beach is a unique photo studio that's ideal for families and children who want something other than traditional posed images. You show up with your family and your children can bring something with them that they're interested in, like a skateboard, soccer ball, basketball, ballet tutu, etc. The photo session normally lasts an hour. The studio is state-of-the-art, and children can skateboard, throw balls or dance while hundreds of photos are quickly captured. In a week or so you can go back and watch a slide show of digitally transformed images that capture your family in an unpredictable and fun way. Then you can choose from a variety of sizes and frames perfect for what you need. You can see some of their work at www.emotionportraits.com.

Get a good 'intimate' fitIntimacy is the newest one-stop shopping destination at South Coast Plaza to find the perfect fitting bra. Quite possibly the most renowned bra fit expert, (as seen on "Oprah," and referred to as the "bra whisperer") Susan Nethero, founded Intimacy, where you can take advantage of free 30-minute bra fit makeovers, complimentary lifetime alterations and choose from an extensive size selection.
The bra boutique boasts an eye-candy bra wall, a gilded "bra bank" housing thousands of bras in more than 90 sizes (from A to K cup), and spa-like dressing rooms. Nethero says that to have a complete bra wardrobe you need two basic bras in skin tone for tees; one that works with tricky necklines; options for halter, racerback and one-shoulder looks; and lastly fashion bras — a cleavage-enhancing plunge, a demi bra and something with fun and fashionable straps to add excitement to any outfit.
Intimacy features the finest luxury brands from international designers, such as La Perla, Simone Perele, Lise Charmel, Chantelle and PrimaDonna. And it also carries sports bras, bridal bustiers, maternity bras and fabulous nightwear.
