Portrait Innovations Brings First-Ever 3D Portrait Technology to Charlotte Studio

Portrait Innovations is announcing a new technology that allows customers to create full-body 3D replicas of themselves or their loved ones. As the only portrait studio in North Carolina with these capabilities, Portrait Innovations uses state-of-the-art photography and 3D printing technology to produce stunningly detailed, lifelike collectibles that people can cherish and display forever. The chance to take advantage of this new keepsake technology is exclusively available at the Portrait Innovations studio located in the Promenade Shopping Center in Charlotte’s Ballantyne area.

The process to create these 3D figurines is actually quite easy using the new technology. An individual or couple enters the 3D Studio and a Portrait Innovations professional photographer captures the perfect 360-degree portrait using 120 high-speed digital cameras simultaneously. This 360-degree image is replicated through a 3D printer. Customers have the choice of four keepsake options:

  • Full Standing Figurines: The full size image is turned into a 6- to 8-inch lifelike figurine
  • Wedding Cake Topper: Couples can create a full body 8.5-inch figurine to display on their wedding cake, and then keep as a memento following the big day (don’t worry, the groom doesn’t have to see the bride in her wedding dress)
  • Character Figurines: At 3 inches tall, the 3D portrait of someone’s face can be added to the body of a caricature, selecting from 30 options ranging from sports, heroes, holiday themes and various jobs
  • Mini Toy Head: Adding new excitement to a classic toy, a detailed replica of a loved one’s head is added onto a Lego® person

“Portrait Innovations is thrilled to continue being on the cutting edge of such huge advancements in portraits and keepsakes,” said John Grosso, CEO of Portrait Innovations. “We’re looking forward to consumer feedback in our Ballantyne studio, just a short drive from our corporate headquarters in Charlotte. We think our guests will love the opportunity to create such memorable gifts and hope to roll it out to more studios as we see the demand for such innovative, truly impressive technology.”

Portrait Innovations specializes in providing a customized portrait studio experience with creative possibilities for beautiful, professional print and digital portraits. Guests can also create unique, thoughtful gifts, such as photo books, calendars, jewelry, playing cards, puzzles, greeting cards and much more. The company has 187 locations nationwide and photographers at each studio have been trained in the newest posing and photography techniques to work with newborns, children, families, graduates, religious milestones and large groups.
