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 $275, you get a family-portrait package at Clay Blackmore & Co. in Rockville (a $750 total value). The portrait package includes:
- In-studio family photo shoot (a $500 value)
- 100 custom holiday cards (a $2 value each)
- $50 studio gift certificate<p>
Boasting a client base that includes Larry King and Maria Sharapova, Clay Blackmore and Co.’s seasoned shutterbugs afford subjects celebrity-style treatment in each studio session. Kinsfolk gather for an in-studio shoot during which a versatile photographer will foster natural poses and candid smiles. Once tender moments have been sentenced to a two-dimensional prison for eternity, clients select a winning image to be artfully printed onto 100 custom holiday cards and disseminated across the globe in included envelopes or plastered on teenagers’ lockers.
An included $50 credit can sponsor an upgrade to an on-location shoot (an extra $250 cost), prints ($40 for an 8”x10” or 5”x7”) or additional holiday cards ($2 each), among other picturesque tokens of togetherness. Military families who purchase this Groupon will receive an additional $50 gift certificate at the studio in honor of their work defending the nation and keeping the communists from stealing Santa Claus.
