Photography has progressed exponentially over the past century with the development of digital cameras, faster shutter speeds, and smiling. Capture the latest trends of emotional technology with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a photo-shoot package at Abbey Portrait Studio in Stuart (a $233 total value). The package includes:
- A 30-minute in-studio photo shoot (a $69 value)
- One 8”x10” print (a $39 value)
- Two 5"x7” prints (a $50 value)

Veteran shuttersmith Julie Hughes and her husband Peter use their keen eyes and artistic sensibilities to turn precious moments into family heirlooms. During the 30-minute photo shoot, families and friends pose in the controlled environment of a studio, where they hoist props before skillfully arranged lights and backgrounds. Models also have the right to rotate through one wardrobe change or evolutionary mutation. Clients then make an appointment to select one 8”x10” print and two 5”x7” prints of a different pose. Clients pick their favorite single image to print on 25 holiday cards that can be mailed to 25 different friends or 1 friend with 25 mantles.
