No tape or promise of sweet-buns is strong enough to keep a child still for the duration of an entire picture session, only the attention of a seasoned photographer. Christy Rimrodt has a stylistic affinity for capturing the emotions and energy surrounding children and maternity, though her talents extend well beyond such photogenic themes. Today's deal lets you choose the location of your shoot from anywhere within 50 miles of the Portland area. You can capture the innocence of your niece, the dove-tailed happiness of your children, or the third trimester glow of pregnancy over the course of a one-hour shoot ($200 value). After your shoot you get to schedule a viewing appointment with Christy to observe your modeling skills on a 70-inch projection screen ($150 value) and see what extra photo packages are available for purchase outside of your Groupon. Plus, you get an 8x10 print ($50 value) and two 5x7 prints ($70 value).
When Steven Melton cleans a carpet, he doesn’t spray, vacuum, and run. Instead, he works each carpet fiber through seven steps of cleaning designed to remove soil, banish stains, and leave carpets with a surprisingly short drying time. He utilizes non-toxic, eco-friendly cleaning solutions in tandem with a rotating brush agitator and High-Flow extractor before carefully spotting any missed spots or still-kicking stains. A post-cleaning grooming session accelerates drying time as well as the wagging of the carpet’s tail.
One sunny day, Rob Kelley's kids did something characteristically adorable: they decided to make juice from berries they'd picked in the fields. Not so adorably, they spilled the pitcher of just-smashed berries all over one of his dining-room chairs, and the dark purple juice spread across the upholstery. Luckily for the kids, their father owns Sweet's Chem-Dry, and after a session with the company's hot carbonating extraction system, all evidence of the accident disappeared. Kelley documented his success in a small Facebook album.
His team employs the same carbonation system, along with a green, nontoxic cleanser, to lift dirt and debris from carpets, area rugs, and car interiors. Propelled by a truck-mounted machine, the system's microscopic bubbles delve deep into fibers to push grime to the surface, where hot-water extraction flushes it away. Since this system does not leave residue the way cleaning a carpet traditionally or just letting the birds have at it does, carpets stay clean longer. Fabrics dry in up to two hours, and optional protectant shields carpets and upholstery from future stains.
