Freezing beloved relatives in carbonite may capture their essence for eons to come, but great grandma's essence might forever berate you for breaking her poodle figurines. Save family memories for a figurative eternity with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $75 worth of in-home or on-location photography services from Clay Taylor Photography.
Clay Taylor Photography captures familial intimacy and growth with light-filled portraiture. To infuse portraits with personal meaning, its shutterbug travels throughout Shreveport and Bossier City (travel fees may apply beyond this area) for about a one-hour session at posers' favorite settings, such as a cozy front porch, an iris-studded park, or a neighbor's already-clean living room. Children and family sessions—for up to four family members ($75, plus $25/each additional family member)—capture playful, youthful gestures, and maternity sessions ($75) and newborn sessions ($50–$75) gently capture delicate, soft-focus likenesses. Today's Groupon can also be used toward wedding packages (starting at $550) or headshots.
Before modeling, subjects attend a planning session to hash out the desired mood of the shoot and costuming and prop design. Follow-up includes viewing the image harvest online, at which point patrons can decide whether to purchase prints and or to discard the shot in which the whole family is dressed in matching cat costumes. Possibilities include portrait collections (starting at $250), fine-art custom prints, and greeting cards, all of which start with a $75 credit if the Groupon is used toward a children and family photo session.
