Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today’s Groupon provides a less complicated option: for $50, you get a one-hour portraiture session at the location of your choosing and a CD with five retouched digital images from Andrea Smith Photography (an $825 value).
Andrea Smith, like a hummingbird taking flight from the portrait studio, takes flight from her portrait studio to capture photographic images in natural, outdoor settings. Clients will first speak by phone with Smith to discuss ideas and expectations for the shot. Then you’ll throw on your fanciest dress-boa for a one-hour portrait session (normally $75), which can take place at a location of your choosing within 30 kilometres of Toronto or postal code M2N 1L5 (with additional $25 fees per extra 30 km outside of that). Smith will train her photo-optic eye on you and up to four fellow portrait posers as she waits for ideal images to emerge. Whatever those moments may be—a close embrace between you and your fiancée, a wide-eyed expression of blissful bewilderment from your baby, a mid-air high-five between you and your fellow developer-defeating ski instructors—Smith will record them with a brilliant use of lighting and a close attention to detail. After the shoot, Smith will provide more than 20 proofs to choose from at an ordering consultation; clients will then choose five of those images for Smith to retouch ($150 per retouched image) and place in a high-resolution format on a CD, with full 5”x7” printing rights included. With polished pics in your possession, you’ll be free to roam Toronto with proof that, despite rumours to the contrary, you do exist.
Included as a bonus with this Groupon is 10% off additional prints and packages from Andrea Smith Photography. Get your Groupon and call Andrea Smith Photography to schedule a stylish soul-capturing session.
