The most seductive poses are often totally motionless, evidenced by photographs of naked statues and paintings of rocks shaped like Elvis. Freeze timeless sexiness with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a 30-minute boudoir photo session plus one high-quality 11"x14" print from Haute Pink, a division of ultra-spective, in Livermore (up to a $475 value).
Haute Pink's lead photographer Jamaica Wexelman draws from her fashion-industry background to snap sensual yet playful female likenesses, accommodating each diva with a variety of options. After a pre-session consultation to discuss the client's sexy self-concept, the model will enter the all-female studio carrying any needed props, such as her favorite lingerie set or World of Warcraft guild-membership seal.
During the course of the 30-minute session (a $400 value), a team of professional shutterbugs—many of whom were subjects in previous Haute Pink shoots—ease any prephotography jitters while using various camera angles to permanently capture multiple facets of a single look. In approximately one week, clients return to the studio's theater room to select one digitally retouched image, which they may hang as a pin-up next to framed bowling pins in a linen-textured 11"x14" fine art print (a $75 value).

A family of four poses amid crisp fall leaves, late sunlight casting a warm glow across their smiling cheeks. A newlywed couple beams at each other under a canopy of palm trees. Staff members of a new salon hold a giant pair of scissors, poised to cut the ribbon and the hair of their first giant customer during their opening ceremony. ultra-spective's photographers can capture groups and individuals in nearly any context, and they take a distinctive approach to each—so much so that the studio boasts six different divisions, for family portraits, high-school seniors, art portraiture, weddings, boudoir shoots, and business photography. An all-female team with expertise in lighting and airbrushing directs the boudoir shoots, where they guide subjects in poses designed to make them look svelte and beautiful. For family shoots, they'll gladly venture to a selection of reliably picturesque parks where split-rail fences lean, redwoods loom, and sycamores dapple golden fields with shade. The studio itself has plenty of personality, with chandeliers and black walls lined with hot pink sequins.
