The best photographers rise to the top by practicing, while second-best photographers rise to the top by shooting blackmail photos of the first-best. Snare a superlative shutterbug with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a graduation-portrait session and five print units from Davillier Photography & Graphics (a $250 value).
Lacy Davillier applies her background in studio art and design with her instinct for cultivating unforced photo moments to preserve timeless senior moments. Grads-to-be celebrate their classic-rite rights in the course of a one-hour snap session that includes up to two wardrobe changes and a studio-furnished cap and gown if desired. Shoots take place in-studio on Canal Street or in nearby City Park, where seniors can pose with natural landmarks or immortalize an unprovoked duck attack.
After the camera clicks its last frame, subjects are invited to an after-session consultation where they pick their favorite images and choose one shot for a print configuration of five units—one 8"x10:, two 5"x7"s, or eight wallet photos. Prints arrive 4–8 weeks from the time of selection, so plan ahead to ensure pregraduation-day arrival.
Davillier Photography & Graphics
After stumbling upon an unmanned camera during her sophomore year at NYU, Lacy Davillier devoted her studies to the photographic arts, earning a BFA in studio art with a focus on photography and graphic design. She found that the peace and seclusion of the dark room proved a welcome respite from the din of city traffic, the pressures of school, and the monotony of sunlight. The young yet experienced photographer now specializes in contemporary photography, chronicling weddings, maternity moments, and celebrating families on location or in her studio. This picturesque space on historic Canal Street, with its wood floors, original doors, and classic New Orleans porch, serves as a romantic backdrop for any manner of shoots, and is fully stocked with toys and organic juices for clients’ kids. Lacy also performs a variety of graphic-design services as well as photograph-restoration work.
