Saying the word “cheese” will either cause a camera to spontaneously snap your picture or send a block of gruyere smashing through the kitchen window. Avoid an accidental cheese order with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a personalized photo package at CL!X Portrait Studios in Derby (a $139.95 total value). The photo package includes the following:
- An in-studio photo session (a $9.95 value)<p>
- A CL!X club membership (a $35 value), which includes the following:
- Two years of free sitting fees
- A 10% discount on all purchases for two years

CL!X Portrait Studios permanently preserves memories of mugs by locking them away in digital time capsules. The imaging session begins in a private studio, where a quick-clicking shutterbug turns the camera’s eye in the client’s direction to rack up a collection of shots boasting hand-selected backdrops and props reflective of his or her personality. Subjects can wear whatever clothes or decorative sleeve hearts they’d like, and may bring along several outfits to change into during the session. After the shoot, the photographer helps models choose their three favorite high-resolution images, ensuring no one picks a pose plagued with red eyes, exposed tongues, or ghosts giving rabbit ears. A 10”x20” three-portrait montage tells a triptych narrative of the photo shoot, and 20 4”x8” holiday cards printed in-house can be customized with text and one of more than 100 designs. Members reap two years of waived sitting fees and a 10% discount, plus one complimentary 8”x10” sheet of images.
Though CL!X Portrait Studios sometimes offers a discount online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
