Photographs of precious moments are the greatest gifts relatives can leave behind for their descendants, aside from genes for cowlick-resistant hair or hints to where the inheritance is buried. Pass on a transgenerational treasure with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a family-portrait package at Blue Sky Images (a $543 value). Each package includes:
- A one-hour in-studio photo session (a $75 value)
- One 11”x14” print (a $350 value)
- One 5”x7” print (a $50 value)
- Eight wallet-sized prints (a $68 value)
At Blue Sky Images, professional photographers Vickie and Ryan Fellows use their 15 years of family-portrait experience and high-caliber camera equipment to expertly preserve memories digitally. Models-to-be discuss their vision and debate which side is their best side during a complimentary consultation before embarking on memory-catching quests. Up to six family members and cherished family pets strut beneath professional studio lighting during a one-hour photo shoot before reviewing finished products on a large flat-screen. Before printing, the studio can provide enhancement and touch-up services to cover up scars, blemishes, and tattoos of bunny ears. Customers can hang 11"x14" and 5"x7" prints in homes or offices, and flash their wallet-sized clones to soften the hearts of librarians when returning overdue library books.

President George Bush. Steve Forbes. Jamie Lee Curtis. Aside from the champagne-flute birthmark all famous people have, these three celebs all share the experience of posing for the cameras of Vickie and Ryan Fellows. Regardless of the A-list status of their clients, the duo treat their subjects to a personable, creative experience. Vickie frames families, kids, and expectant moms while Ryan photographs events and high-school seniors.
Many of these personalized portraiture sessions unfold in the pair's new studio, where clients can pose in the natural light streaming through the windows in the high-ceilinged space. The Fellows also adapt their photojournalistic style to the outdoors by harnessing early morning and late afternoon light to illuminate their subjects. On-location at clients' homes, Vickie and Ryan use studio and natural lighting to ensure the best shots possible. After sessions, the pair perform their own in-house touchups, printing, and framing to preserve your favorite images with products ranging from prints and canvas gallery wraps to DVD slideshows and coffee-table books.
