Quality photos leave the subjects looking their best, unlike mouth-staining popsicles and confrontational Christmas-shopping tussles. Immortalize your family's good side with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get an express beach family photo shoot from Alena’s Photography Studio in St. Augustine (a $277 value). Beach sites are available at Vilano Beach, Crescent Beach, St. Augustine Beach, and Mickler's Landing.
Alena’s Photography Studio's shutterbugging duo of moms digitally cage grinning kin for mantel memorializing with high-end camera equipment and photographic knowledge gleaned from UNC Charlotte. Alena's family photos use the sun-dappled Atlantic’s rich azure backdrop to its fullest—all in a time frame that won't tax the patience of toddlers or cause fussy fathers to start bawling. Sunset-scheduled shoots yield gorgeous images of families reflected in shimmering wet sand as they walk hand in hand beneath a sky suffused with warm pink. The barefoot approach encourages families to be spontaneous and act naturally, incorporating the beach's cresting plumes of foam, lifeguard chairs, and beached krakens. The express session records one pose against one background, then ceremonially turns it over in the form of two low-resolution images and one 11”x14” print.
Alena's Photography Studio
Helmed by a staff of shutter-clicking ladies, Alena's Photography Studio ensures the safe arrival of memories into the future with a repertoire of photographic services. In-studio or on-location shoots fuse the staff's artistic talents with the subject's style and personality, enabling both parties to meet in the middle and create impeccable portraits for families, weddings, high-school seniors, and more. In addition to standard or seasonal sessions, the studio also specializes in high-quality beach shoots, which capture barefoot groups amid rolling waves, glistening sand, and warmly lit skies illuminated by the sunset or glow of the moon's massive alarm clock.
