Stephanie Reinish employs high-end lenses and a low-tech playful approach to capture moments both fleeting and profound in the lives of families, infants, and four-legged friends of any phylum. During a 45-minute on-location session, candid models can feel free to test out ideas of their own or simply allow Stephanie's keen eye to hone in on a vibrant backdrop or adventurous pose. After the shoot, clients choose an image from a lineup of 10 proofs, pointing out a portrait to imprison in an 11”x14” print on charges of identity theft. Groupon holders also get 10% off additional prints, such as 4"x6" ($45) to spruce up a barren work space or an 8"x10" ($45) to brighten up a barren mantle.
