Photographs provide a more concrete way of recording recollections than sketching portraits in sand or dictating memoirs to an empty jam jar. Preserve precious memories with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a one-hour studio session and $100 toward prints from Dina Ivory Photography, located two blocks east of Capital Circle (up to a $225 value).
Winner of Tallahassee Magazine's Best Photographer distinction in both 2009 and 2010, Dina Ivory brings more than 30 years of experience in creating classic professional portraits and showcasing individual personality and style to every one of her studio sessions. With a knack for photoensnaring moments in the lives of babies and children, Ivory fashions a child-friendly and stress-free experience for parents thanks to private changing rooms, plates of cookies, and an ever-helpful staff on hand to scare away any shot-spoiling background sasquatch. Portrait-seeking patrons can meet with a design consultant prior to the picture snapping to discuss ideas about attire, setting, and theme, leading to completely customized final images suitable for handing out to family members, talent scouts, and attractive strangers. After the camera deeds are done, a portrait consultant with more than 18 years of experience will help clients select the best image, and a digital designer will smooth away pixeled imperfections for a polished product. Wallet-size photographs start at $52 for eight, and 4"x5" or 4"x6" standard prints sell for around $58.
Though Dina Ivory Photography sometimes offers a complimentary sitting fee for children's birthdays, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Dina Ivory Photography
Photographer Dina Ivory has cultivated more than 30 years of experience in her field—shooting timeless portraits of adults, children, and infants. Dina and her staff grease the wheels of each shoot, ensuring things run smoothly by catering to kids with treats, assisting subjects with wardrobe and prop choices, and supplying parents with diapers for little ones. The client-focused experience, which helped the studio win a “Best of” nod in 2010 and 2011 from Tallahassee Magazine, continues with complimentary portrait consultations, wherein an expert photographer walks subjects through their photo options before the camera starts clicking. Inside the studio, Dina snaps families in front of classic backgrounds before digitally retouching each batch of shots. Outside, Dina guides guests to a picturesque farm on Sunray Road where she captures subjects gliding through the air on a tire swing, leaning against a bale of hay or a vintage 1948 Ford truck, or giving a pedicure to a belgian draft horse.
