A photographic memory is a blessing and a curse: you can remember everything, but none of it is open to interpretation. Share the burden every camera must carry with today's deal: for $45, you get a professional photography session from the bionic-eyed Christina Lundeen (a $510 total value). You can choose to redeem your Groupon at her studio in Brookside or schedule an appointment for her to come to you like lucid dreams of Baconnaise (Christina will travel to any location you like within a 20-mile radius of her studio). After your session, you'll receive a custom viewing appointment to choose your three favorite shots for retouching and placement on a CD ($300). You will also receive a DVD slideshow of all images taken ($60) and 15% off any physical prints of your photos.
Christina Lundeen is known for her portrait photography of blushing brides, families, puppies, children, adorably creepy ghost children, and children still inside their mothers. Christina shoots in both color and black and white to tailor each photo session to the subject, while still giving each one a fun and laid-back experience—generating the spontaneous moments that often make the best photos, as well as the best Old West saloon brawls. Feel like a model while posing in Christina's home studio, or arrange your shoot in the comfort of your own home and hearth or at a specified set of back-to-back benches in your favorite park (trench coat and code words optional).
While Christina Lundeen didn't invent the camera, that doesn't mean she won't someday. Put her nurturing directorial skills and time-freezing talents to the test by having her coax natural smiles out of your newborn baby, soon-to-be mom, high-school senior, or extended family. Besides capturing your soul in 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. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
