Portrait painters ensured their noblewomen subjects were depicted in the most attractive light by highlighting their gowns, augmenting their eyes, and censoring any racy ankle exposure. Polish yourself for a modern portrait with today’s Groupon to Glamour Shots in Fairfax, Virginia. Choose between the following options:

- Airbrush makeup, hair styling, three wardrobe changes, and photo shoot with 40–60 poses (a $29.95 value)

Glamour Shots’ expert capturers lead each of their photo sessions, generously sharing ample directorial power with their subject. Professional photography offers experience and guidance, which means pictures won’t have any elbows poking out of the corner of the frame. Subjects who opt for the boudoir session can bring three of their favorite stylish ensembles and communicate with the photographer so he or she can execute alluring visions with ease. Featured faces are even welcome to bring props such as the newspaper featuring their victory at the Jam Recipe Throwdown. Since a preshoot makeover is included in the package, clients can leave their own trusty airbrush kits at home. After the snapathon, customers can view their photos on a video slideshow and choose two images from the multitudinous selection to be placed in a framed collage.
Guests uninterested in releasing their inner glamour goat can opt for a standard photo session and printed portrait options. Camera-ready models receive a complimentary photo session that includes up to three different outfits and 50–60 poses. Groupon holders can apply Glamour Shots’ basic Glamour Touch retouching process to eight wallet prints or two 5”x7” glossies ($69) to erase blemishes and clashing mood-ring colors. Alternatively, an 8”x10” regular-finish print ($39) presents subjects au naturel without retouching.
Though Glamour Shots sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
