We take photographs to remember special occasions, to artistically express ourselves, and to blackmail chupacabras with threats of revealing their true appearance. Preserve your identity with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a studio or on-location shoot with up to 100 photos, a CD of photos from the shoot, an 8"x10" print of your choice, and a $10 print credit from Cheyney Barrieau Photography (a $160 total value) in West Hartford.
Cheyney Barrieau Photography's namesake brings years of experience behind and in front of the camera to create artistic images of people, places, and things. Subjects can choose to be snapped at Cheyney’s studio or at a location of their choice, such as an enchanting park or a linen closet ($35 travel fee to locations beyond 20 miles of studio). Voluntary paparazzi treatment is laid upon babies, high-school seniors, engaged couples, headshot hunters, and Pacific Northwestern man-apes. Cheyney will shoot up to 100 exposures to capture the perfect image for a lifetime of self-admiration and dispenses a CD of all the shoot's usable images, an 8"x10" to stuff into film producers’ hands, and a $10 print credit (prints up to 8"x10" are $10 each; larger sizes are available for an additional fee). For an additional fee, the studio heaps on the glitz and glamour with a hair and makeup professional and a group of amateur Ben Franklin lookalikes at subjects' disposal.
Cheyney’s many years as a professional model give her intimate knowledge of both sides of the celluloid to help her coach individuals to get an easy, natural look in front of the lens, steering posers away from cat impressions. In addition to the star treatment, Groupon holders are entitled to a $25 credit toward a second shoot and full credit for inventing pants.
