What You'll Get
Photographs catch indelible memories, just as white dress shirts invariably catch indelible sauce stains. Imprint a moment in time with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a Classic Portrait package from Elaine Halpert Photography (a $330 total value) that includes the following:
- A one-hour in-studio or on-location photo session (a $225 value)
- One 8”x10” print (a $25 value)
- Two 5”x7” prints (a $15 value each)
- One gallery CD for internet sharing (a $50 value)<p>
An exhibiting fine-art photographer and longtime photography instructor, Elaine Halpert captures her subjects’ likenesses using the refined eye of an artist augmented by experience and precise technical skills. Adept at multiple styles of portraiture including individuals, couples, infants, and groups, Halpert can accommodate up to five people for a one-hour image-capturing session. Models can bulk up smile muscles within the controlled environment of an in-studio shoot; those eager to showcase a favorite locale can opt for an on-location shoot in a home, scenic park, or jumbo-size live-in terrarium. Halpert maintains a flexible approach, striving to customize each session so that subjects’ personalities shine through. Once freshly-baked 8”x10” and 5”x7” prints have sufficiently cooled off, portrait subjects can scoop up their frame-ready renderings along with a CD gallery packed with meticulously hung snapshots for internet sharing. Additional prints can be ordered from Halpert or online from a personal web gallery of edited and lightly enhanced colour, black-and-white, sepia, and barely visible white-on-white images.

About Elaine Halpert Photography
After Elaine Halpert graduated from Ryerson University, she worked as an exhibiting fine-art photographer and taught photography classes. With her more than a decade of accrued experience, she refocused her efforts to build her own photography business, drawing upon the many lessons she learned, including the idea that two cameras are better than one. She and a sidekick attend all special-event shoots, capturing as many memories as possible during celebrations ranging from bar mitzvahs to weddings.
Her work emphasizes normal exposure and natural light, ensuring pictures suffused with authentic hues and clear focus. On occasion, she saturates colours by drawing out the brightness of a blue balloon or the stately beiges of a municipal bus shelter. Elaine also varies her lenses to achieve portraits with soft backgrounds and group shots with crisp details.
