Before cameras, people seeking to leave a legacy could only hope to secure their place in future textbooks by poisoning the emperor. Avoid being a mere footnote with this Groupon.

Louisville Lens Photography
When Louisville Lens Photography’s photographers arrive at clients’ homes or at such outdoor locales as Cherokee Park and Yew Dell Botanical Gardens, they start each session with all of their camera equipment tucked inside their carrying cases. They do this so that they can get to know their clients and make them feel as comfortable as possible. After engaging in friendly conversation or playing a handful of children’s games, the photography pros begin snapping photos designed to capture the subject’s true personality. Their most popular sessions feature kids, parents-to-be, seniors, couples in love, and couples idly perusing a takeout menu. The staff also leads photography workshops for novice photographers that take place outdoors, showing students how to light and compose artistic shots.
