What You'll Get
Early photographers began to grasp the importance of flash after images of Frankenstein taken during a lightning storm helped to sell the world’s first tabloid. Preserve memories through safer snapshots with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a one-hour in-studio photo shoot with two people (a $150 value) and 10 print-quality copies of your favorite images on CD (a $50 value per image) plus a complimentary $10 credit toward more prints (a $650 total value) at 1000 Words Photography in Spring. This Groupon may not be used toward event photography. On-location shoots are available for an additional fee, starting at $100.
Neil Stewart and his team at 1000 Words Photography harness the powers of digital technology to track and capture pictures of fleeting glimpses of human emotion. Subjects arrange themselves in the spacious studio featuring 900 square feet of controlled environment suited for commercial photography, headshots, or snapshots of 6-foot party-sub collections. After the photo shoot, Neil touches up 10 photos of your choice and converts them to a compact disc, where they meander about the memory space waiting to be printed (this Groupon includes the copyright release, so images can be freely reproduced). A $10 credit can be applied toward prints ($25 for 8" x 10"s; $10 for 5" x 7"s) ready for debuts in wallets, scrapbooks, or on shower curtains. For an additional fee (starting at $100 and not included in the Groupon), on-location shoots position scenic backgrounds behind poses that add a personal touch to senior portraits or capture the rugged possibilities of real-estate listings.

About 1000 Words Photography
Though photographer Neil Stewart has spent nearly two decades flying all over the country to capture stunning editorial images for companies big and small, he's most at home in his 900-square-foot digitally equipped studio. This space allows him to connect more personally with some of his favorite clients: families and kids. Neil's family portraits fill frames with relaxed, natural poses, often caught in front of simple, monochromatic backdrops, and Neil's comfort with children is obvious as he captures wide smiles, budding personalities, and burgeoning backflip abilities. His wife, Tina, lends her makeup brushes to freshen subjects' faces for headshots and wedding photography.
Neil's full-scale studio allows models to instantly peruse their images and swiftly receive prints, although he also transports his professional lighting equipment to on-location shoots. After sessions, he processes images with Adobe software and makes sure they're saved in two places, so pictures are safe in case one computer regresses back into a calculator.
