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 gives you a less-complicated option: for $59, you get a 45-minute on-location photo shoot ($125) and 20 digital copies ($200) of your favorite prints from Black and Geauxld Photography (a $325 total value). Though these images can be printed, they will appear with a watermark. For an extra charge, your images can be converted into professional-quality prints of varying sizes with nary a watermark in sight. Black and Geauxld will travel to any location within the greater New Orleans area, and up to five people may share the session.
Though photographer Geovanni Velasquez didn't invent the camera, that doesn't mean he won't invent it someday in an alternate universe where cameras have yet to be invented. The professional shutterbug takes great pains to work with you and your style, serving your desired image and flair, meeting with you before your session to plan it out and make sure to meet your expectations. Put his nurturing directorial skills and time-freezing talents to the test by having him coax natural smiles out of your newborn, soon-to-be mom, high-school senior, or Pulitzer Prize–winning pets. This is also an excellent opportunity to upgrade the framed family photos that have been hanging in your parents’ home for the past 600 years. Now that you aren’t riddled with acne or plagued with a six-year-old’s gummy smile, split the cost with your sibs and surprise your folks with a more up-to-date snapshot just in time for Father’s Day.
Besides capturing your soul into an easily portable format, photographic portraiture is a terrific way to reveal your best side in a controlled scenario and ensure that you'll have at least one Facebook photo of yourself where you're not hoisting a red plastic cup.

One aspect of the photo shoot that impressed me the most was how he immediately deleted any photo where my outfit needed to be adjusted and made certain to let me know before he started shooting.
