After receiving her degree in photography and graphic design, Kelly Powell traveled the world in search of frank, heartfelt images—a journey that took her from historic Italian villages to the war-torn plains of Africa. The owner and head photographer of Elements Studio Photography channels these experiences into her camera work, which blends candid shots with traditional portraits and oversized thought bubbles to convey the true emotions of the day. She and fellow shutterbug Rainey Rinaldi specialize in boudoir, portrait, and event photography, with a particular passion for unconventional weddings.
Chris Bendet's photographic methods mash classic melodrama, of-the-moment photojournalism, and modern portraiture to preserve moments that caputure genuine relationships and pure emotions. For one to two hours, cameras catch the countenance of you and up to 49 of your progeny and pets, perfect for capturing large family gatherings or couples portraits with an eccentric backdrop of 48 yowling coyotes. Depending on the specifics of your desired shoot, Bendet photography will shoot your session at either their charming Red House Studio ($100) or on-site in a location determined upon consultation ($150). Post-session, three of your images are made into physical prints (up to 8”x10”, $60) and a montage of your photo session and images are collected on a DVD ($200), providing a digital repository for posting your portraiture online or sharing through email, social media sites, or ecarrier pigeons. Should your images require further familiar distribution, Groupon holders will receive a 10% discount on additional prints.
A newborn being cradled in his parents’ hands. A newly engaged couple nuzzling together. A family wrestling a Burmese python for their most recent family portrait. These are the moments that the photographers at Abundant Moments Photography strive to capture during their in-studio and on-location photo shoots. Less concerned with poses and more concerned with spontaneous actions, they keep their cameras focused on babies, seniors, families, and brides and grooms. The resulting photos can be shared online, printed, arranged into a collage, or superimposed on accessories such as bags and jewelry.
Offering professional holiday photo services, WorldWide Photography has trained an army of bushy-tailed Easter Bunnies to fill your children and childlike androids with seasonal cheer.

Parents of stunning subjects will also receive a $20 coupon to MyAlbumPics.com and a $10 gift card to MyMagicalPics.com.
KC Fun Photo Booths’ state-of-the-art picture-takers are built for customizability—their curtained confines are expandable from 6’ x 6’ to 10’ x 10’ in order to accommodate large groups and adolescent horses. A touchscreen console controls the booth’s 18-megapixel camera, sending unlimited shots to the photo printer and an online gallery. A professional attendant keeps photos flowing, and a selection of props adds levity to group portraits.
"While other little ones had their lemonade stands, I had my craft stand," shares Kelli LeBeau, a professional photographer with a lifelong passion for art. After earning her Fine Arts degree, LeBeau dove headfirst into the photography business, lassoing fleeting moments with her trusty camera during photo shoots with high school seniors, families, and newborns. During sessions, she composes photo-journalistic shots, while incorporating natural light and striving to tell the stories that the family dog just can't put into words.
Devine Studios’ Joe and Lora Devine transform cherished moments into timeless monuments during 90-minute photo shoots. In each session, the duo wields their shutterbugging lenses in pursuit of stately portraits, candid family photos, or headshots for rodeo clown auditions to immortalize up to four faces ($20 for each person beyond four). Outfit kids with fashions from the studio’s wardrobe for a stylish documentation of life’s firsts, or celebrate school’s denouement with triumphant senior portraits. The Devines populate in-studio sessions with a variety of handmade backgrounds and props, or decamp to outdoor locations to capture nature’s rich pastoral palette. After glitz-and-glamour sessions conclude, the Devines help photographees find their favorite shot before printing and stretching the selected picture onto a 16"x24" canvas designed for gallery walls or use as a game-changing hood ornament. Though not included in this Groupon, additional prints are also available for purchase ($25 for eight wallet-size prints; $65 for an 8”x10”).
