Before modern photography, portrait-seeking subjects would cover themselves in year-end financial figures to meet the requirements for being xeroxed. Capture more accurate self-copies with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a 90-minute on-site portrait session for up to four from Tornberg Photography (a $300 value) at a park on Beverly Boulevard or West Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles or in Beverly Hills.
A veteran model and actress with more than 15 years’ experience, Maria Tornberg brings her camera expertise to shutter-clicking as she photographs small groups and families of up to four in 90-minute sessions. Tornberg meets with subjects in parks, using natural light to draw out candid beauty more reliably than a spoon of peanut butter lures lurking elephants. Tornberg offers styling assistance and suggests poses as she collaborates with patrons to capture distinctive personalities and interpersonal dynamics. Subjects take home a disc of all images and choose one shot for retouching. For an additional fee, more pictures can be retouched, eliminating blemishes and making naturally red eyes redder.
