What You'll Get
Like developing superpowers, developing a photograph always starts in a lab under the cover of darkness and ends with a transformative dip in a chemical bath. Discover your extraordinary photographic abilities with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a studio portrait session including two 5"x7" prints, one 8"x10" print, one 11"x14" print, and an online gallery of edited photos at Dan Johnson Photography in Grandville (a $225.54 value).
Dan Johnson Photography brings a practiced eye and a steady hand to each professional snapshot session it orchestrates, capturing unique and spontaneous moments on the intractable medium of film. Up to six people can be part of the 30-minute, in-studio portrait session, allowing for family portraits, sports-team poses, or photographic proof that there are, in fact, only four steps between you and a captive Kevin Bacon. Sessions take place in the studio with colorfully painted walls and leather couches that put even the most camera-shy at ease. Portraitees are free to bring three different outfits for optimal sartorial variety as well as props, pets, and pictorial representations of neuroses to add a personal touch to immortalized moments.
After the session, the studio will put together a private online proof gallery for easy at-home viewing of retouched shots. Those who prefer the reassurance of physical objects or refuse to interact with machines that can't pass the Turing test can opt for physical copies of the proofs in addition to the two 5”x7" prints, one 8”x10" print, and one 11”x14" print included with this Groupon. Prices for additional prints can be found here, and Groupon holders can upgrade to a local park session for $20 or an urban session for $25.

About Dan Johnson Photography
Dan Johnson fell in love with photography using a simple point-and-shoot in high school, toting his lens to summer camp, onto rollercoasters, and through marching-band performances. This love has grown into a successful career as a wedding and portrait photographer—one he pursues with his wife, Jodi, in their spacious Grandville studio. Dan and his team deftly capture senior portraits, snap romantic, lively wedding photographs, and preserve images of babies and newborns for use in embarrassing one's children in front of their future spouses. The pair also creates wholesale prints through their sister company, GoProPrints.com.
