Sitting for a photo was once a long and arduous process, as evidenced by the unkempt facial hair grown by our earliest presidents during their portrait sessions. Capture a clean image with today’s Groupon for $49, you get a photography package from Andrea Pender Photography in Roanoke (up to a $328.50 value). The package includes:

Favoring sunlight over studio light, photosmith Andrea Pender captures the natural essence of her subjects and settings. During a pre-shoot phone call, Pender consults with subjects to determine a location, recommend clothing options, and provide tips on winning staring contests with the camera’s eye. The subsequent one-hour photo session takes place at one of three locations, as chosen by the client: inside the studio or outside at a nearby creek or at a wooded area. Within two weeks, Andrea professionally retouches portraits and uploads the images into a password-protected gallery. The favorite image becomes one 11”x14” print, four wallet-sized clones, and one social-media digital file.
Andrea Pender Photography
Andrea Pender's sunny attitude seems to reflect her love of outdoor photography. A shutterbug since childhood, she has learned to channel natural light to enhance both urban and earthy settings. Her studio sits by a patch of woodland and a burbling creek often featured in her shoots. She doesn't get bored of the scenery, though, because she brings her signature chipper spirit and a fresh artistic eye to each new session.
Andrea specializes in family portraits and weddings, though she also snaps baby photos, boudoir images, and headshots. By building a comfortable repartee with every visitor, she is able to capture candid moments without first disguising herself as a piece of topiary.
