What You'll Get
Quality photos leave the subjects looking their best, unlike mouth-staining popsicles and confrontational Mother's Day-shopping tussles. Discover your superlative side with today's Groupon: for $56, you get a family portrait package (a $310.75 value including HST) from Art and Soul Photography on Gaspe Drive in Waterloo.
Art and Soul turns 3-D faces into artsy portraits to enliven any wall or desk. Today's Groupon is for a family portrait package that includes a 30-minute consultation to discuss portrait styles and wardrobe, a 90-minute professional photo-shoot yielding 40 images from which to choose, and an 11"x14" hand-retouched original print. Photographers Gordon and Grainne Aitken take an original, and sometimes edgy, approach to portraiture that results in one-of-a-kind prints reflecting the personality of the subjects with funhouse mirrors. Clients can choose to strut their stuff in the professional studio or take the shoot to the street or wooded path within the Cambridge/Kitchener/Waterloo area for an on-location session. A family portrait, defined by Art and Soul as being a portrait of two or more people from two or more different generations, is a great way to capture the holiday spirit without the need for cumbersome spectre nets.

About Art and Soul Photography
Working 50 hours a week in a large corporate office, Gordon Aitken could almost feel his creative muscles atrophying. So instead of losing them forever, Gordon lifted his artistic legs and took the step toward his new career as a photographer. That’s how he met his soulmate and collaborator, Grainne, who, coincidentally enough, also walked away from a fast-paced career in international management consulting after years of yearning to express her creativity through photography.
After a chance meeting at an international photographers’ conference, the duo joined forces to open Art and Soul Photography, focusing on creating custom pieces that celebrate subjects with style and individuality. Together, the two have 30 years of combined experience that they've used to capture weddings and snap portraits of famous subjects, including former US President Bill Clinton and professional baseball players. They’ve traveled throughout North Africa and Europe, teaching students that photography is a viable alternative to chiselling marble statues during every Kodak moment.
