Smiling recently became the most socially acceptable form of greeting, recently replacing baring one’s teeth or high-fiving someone in the face. Immortalize this popular trend with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a in-studio or on-location portrait session (a $75 value), one 8"x10" mounted print (a $35 value), two 4"x6" prints (a $70 value), eight wallet-sized prints (a $35 value), and one digital image (a $125 value), all of the same pose, from CaraDee Photography (a $340 total value). This deal includes location shoots within 10 miles of CaraDee's downtown Springfield studio; an additional fee may apply for locations further away.
Experienced photographer and editor Cara Dee Stucke captures clients’ personalities during one-hour snap sessions, immortalizing character traits and grins in professional prints. Before the shoot, clients meet with the portrait takers to agree on makeup, clothing, location, and the general mood of the shoot. An unlimited number of participants are welcome at each session, held at the customer's choice of an urban, natural, or inflatable landscape of choice in the area, or within CaraDee's air-conditioned studio. Customers can feel free to bring along any pets, props, or costumes.
Once the shutter has snapped approximately 40 poses, teeth-airers pick their favorite shot from the lot to take home in the form of two 4"x6" prints, eight wallet-sized prints, and an 8"x10" mounted print on either luster or metallic paper. A digital image allows for easy reprinting or plastering on grandma’s blog.
Veteran shutterbug Cara Dee Stucke honed her artistic eye in 27 years in the portrait-photography field and today attends annual workshops and seminars to stay abreast of modern techniques. Cara Dee snaps elegant, contemporary shots of weddings, families, and high-school seniors using high-tech equipment such as 21.5-megapixel sensor cameras and light-bending hand claps. Before each photo session, the creative team can proffer wardrobe and makeup consultations, taking time to heed customers' requests for the overall vibe of the shoot.
On-location sessions voyage into the tranquil confines of nature for a romantic ambiance, and shoots in the CaraDee Photography studio allow for edgy, urban-theme photos with self-provided props. Images make their way onto prints of all sizes, emblazoned on top-quality metallic or lustrous papers, custom-created books, and videos replete with music.
