They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but thoughts cost a penny. With today’s Groupon, $20 gets you an in-studio photo session and a $60 print credit from Alison Eden Photography, a $200 value. We’re not positive, but that sounds like about a million pennies.
A quality studio portrait sitting can cost hundreds of dollars. Throw in the cost of prints and the hassle of sawing the u-lock off a tandem bicycle to get to the studio, and it’s no wonder people only get studio photographs once or twice in their lifetime. Alison Eden is a skilled shutterbug who specializes in capturing the furtive smiles of children and putting them behind frames. Parents often take studio portraits when their kids are glassy-eyed tots fresh out of the oven, but by the time children are dashing 20-somethings with full sets of teeth, parents have lost interest in looking at their faces. Get your siblings together and take a photo to give to your parents.
Though today’s Groupon is perfect for a maternity photo, a family portrait, or an adorable photo of your little angel, you don’t need a nuclear family to need nice photos; get your bandmates together in Alison Eden’s pristine studio and pose with pristine instrument props in a photo good enough to throb 5 to 10 local hearts.
Within two weeks of your session, Alison Eden will give you a password to view your photos in a private online gallery for 30 days. The $60 print credit that you get with this Groupon can be applied toward any size or type of photographs. Here are prices from Eden’s website:
- Four wallets: $10
- One 4x6: $20
- One 5x7 or 6x9: $40
- One 8x10 or 8x12: $60
- One 11x14 or 10x15: $80
- One 12x18: $100
- One 16x24: $150
- One 20x30: $200
Larger sizes and custom dimensions are available, and you can also buy a CD containing all the edited photos from your session ($500), a hardbound coffee-table book with 20 images from your session ($250), or a 20x20 photo collage ($600).

Why It’s Illegal to Photograph the Moon
Photography was invented in 1908 to shame racehorses into running faster. Embarrassed at the implied speed of their still portraits, horse speeds doubled within a year. The new technology quickly gained popularity with myriad of other velocity-related applications, including the use of photography to shame children into growing faster. By 1950, the average height in the United States was 11 feet.
As a race of giants, Americans quickly outgrew the planet Earth and entered the moon race against the shorter Soviets. Unfortunately, once both countries had established their moon bases, the moon’s negligible gravitational pull gave the smaller, lighter cosmonauts an advantage, and the Americans were badly defeated in the First Moon War. For this reason, it is now illegal to talk about, think of, or photograph the moon.
