Though presently limited to displaying portraits in 2D, photographs of the future will hopefully include all six dimensional qualities to allow viewers to smell time and taste sealed in memories. Capture what's currently comprehensible with today's Groupon for photo sessions from Encore Photography. Choose between the following options:
- $19 for a one-hour photo session and one 4"x5" print (a $100 value)
- $35 for a two-hour photo session and one 4"x5" print (a $130 value) or four baby-steps photo sessions (a $99 value)
The portrait artists at Encore Photography specialize in putting their clients at ease to best capture them in phenomenal portraits. Before every session, photographers get to know their subjects during a design consultation to custom tailor sessions to their client's story, whether it's a romance about a recent engagement or a visual homage to 100 Years of Solitude, tracking several generations of the same family. Families, expecting couples, or best friends can preserve the essence of their relationship in front of multiple in-studio backdrops or in a location session anywhere within 25 miles of downtown Salem.
Though the one-hour session is enough to capture one family, the two-hour session is recommended for multigenerational gatherings, newly engaged couples, and any sessions involving Civil War reenactments. Clients receive a 4"x5" print from their session, as well as a 20% discount from any additional prints, including 5"x7" ($48) or 8"x10" ($65) sizes.
The baby steps sessions allow families to document growing infants with four sessions at important stages in their progeny's development. The newborn session takes place in a relaxed, quiet setting to keep the baby at ease, and the four-month session captures the child's growing awareness of the surrounding world and parents. The eight-month session explores the baby's developing personality and skills, and the one-year bash depicts newfound mobility and freedom by pounding a birthday cake into submission in front of proud relatives. This baby-steps package comes with one 4"x5" print from each session, as well as a 20% discount on additional prints.
Encore! Portrait Design
The photographer behind the lens at Encore! Portrait Design does more than capture his subjects’ best angles. He also captures the bonds that his subjects share with one another, such as parents and their children, grandparents and their grandchildren, or siblings. He also snaps away as dogs and their owners pal around, and freezes four moments in the early life of a baby so parents can look back on the growth of their wee one from sleeping soundlessly at infancy to whittling their first bottle at one years old.
