Photographs make it possible to look at yourself without cleaning a mirror caked in peanut butter or polishing a chrome statue of a famous dog. Stare at your visage with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a one-hour portrait session, an 8"x10" print, and up to 10 digital images on CD from Eugene Photography in Tarzana (up to a $336 value). This deal also entitles customers to 10% off additional prints.
Since 1948, owner Larry Estrin's family has specialized in portraits and wedding-picty taking. During the studio session (a $75 value), a camera-wielding expert will snap an unlimited number of participants in front of a variety of professional backdrops. Customers can also choose on-location shoots, either at home or at any park, garden, or railroad crossing within a five-mile radius of the Eugene Photography studio to add another sprinkling of personality to shots (a $150 value, additional charges for greater distance). Amateur models will receive a CD containing up to 10 digital images to beautify PC desktops and Friendster profiles (a $150 value), as well as an 8"x10" print (a $36 value). Groupon-holders can use their 10% discount on additional prints to purchase second and third 8"x10" photos to give as gifts to family members or to decorate a festive shrive dedicated to the brilliance of their own smiles.
