In the days before mirrors, baseball players would collect their own baseball cards so that they'd always know what they looked like. Enjoy the preservative nature of photographs with today's Groupon: for $86, you get an outdoor portrait session (up to a $200 value) and either one 20"x30" archival print (a $300 value) or two 11"x14" archival prints (a $150 value) from Expressive Photographics (up to a $500 total value). Clients can pick a picturesque public locale for their photo session or opt for at-home photos; today’s deal is valid for sessions within a service area that includes Carmel to the south and the entirety of Santa Cruz County in the north.
Expressive Photographics eschews the banality of traditional posed photography to capture naturally occurring memories of family and loved ones through visual artist Mark Stover's intuitive lens. A personalized consultation before each session outlines customer preferences and location choices. Photo sessions can include up to 50 subjects and serve as an ideal way to celebrate virtually any phase of life: young lovers can immortalize timeless moments of premarital bliss, while families can preserve a child’s toddling adorability and whimsy before it’s cast off for the grave metaphysical contemplations of adolescence. Following each one-hour shutterbugging session, clients will receive either two 11"x14" archival prints (of the same pose) primed for mantel adornment or one 20"x30" print to gift to coworkers or place in enormous wallets.
