Like developing superpowers, developing a photograph always starts in a lab under the cover of darkness and ends with a transformative dip in a chemical bath. Discover your extraordinary photographic abilities with today's Groupon: for $200, you get a one-hour photo session (a $200 value), a DVD slideshow of 25–30 images set to music (a $200 value), and a 5"x7" print on acid-free mounting (a $55 value) at Alicia’s Photography in Naperville (a $455 total value). This Groupon is not applicable for high-school senior sessions, and off-site shoots may incur an extra cost.
Seasoned shooter Alicia Johnson fuses her passion for art and family keepsakes to produce creative and distinctive portraits of families, children, babies, and bun-baking bellies. Commemorate family togetherness or an only child's adorableness in a relaxed and fun one-hour photo session. Alicia and her staff of helpful lens aimers expertly chase away stomach butterflies to capture natural images that showcase organic sentiments. After sessions, Alicia presents 25–30 images on a large screen for clients to peruse before she professionally retouches them and compiles them into a compelling music-laden DVD slideshow. Customers also receive a 5"x7" print of their favorite snapshot on acid-free mounting to hang on walls or paste to popsicle sticks.
Alicia's impressive portfolio spans the pictorial gamut, ranging from traditional photographs to experimental kodachromes with striking backdrops, creative lighting, and clever props made from old fabrics, antique wire-frame baskets, and transparent existential-thought bubbles. Images from the DVD slideshow are not designed to be printed, but for an additional cost, clients can memorialize photo sessions by purchasing prints, coffee-table books, digitally printed holiday cards, and more.
It took the birth of her first child for Alicia Johnson to recognize her passion for photography, as she whiled away her spare time snapping shots of her baby. This newfound hobby triggered the artistic impulses she’d felt her whole life, which have since manifested into a professional photography career spanning the last 16 years. Alicia still cherishes the opportunity to snap pictures of newborns—her favorite subjects—as well as children, families, and high-school seniors. Her calming manner puts infants and adults alike at ease as she harnesses natural light and flattering angles to compose each frame. Alicia’s loft studio in Naperville, located inside the historic Fifth Avenue station, provides chic backdrops and props while on-location shoots let subjects pose against an organic background or favorite tropical-themed screensaver. Alicia’s Photography also offers editing services, as well as traditional prints and images grafted onto canvases, jewelry, iPhone cases, and electronic mediums such as website galleries and DVDs.
