Before photography, family memories were kept alive through annual re-enactments of the year's best moments, despite Grandpa's continued miscasting as the mischievous puppy. Treasure your memories with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a photography package including a one-hour sitting session in studio or on location (a $125 value) and 10 4"x6" prints of your choice (a $150 value) at Inspired Photography (up to a $275 total value). This Groupon covers travel to on-location sites within Saskatoon city limits.
Inspired Photography’s expert shutterbug Kara Selby uses her shooting prowess to snap vibrant, candid portraits of groups and individuals. A one-hour photographic session affords posers up to three different outfits for those who can’t decide which musketeer to come dressed as, and subjects strike as many poses as their hip flexors can handle. Snapshootees can opt to have their likenesses captured in the spacious surrounds of the Inspired Photography studio or can arrange for an on-location shoot to fulfill dreams of chasing a paparazzo out of their kitchen. Once the camera has imprisoned 60 minutes of memories, Kara retouches all pictures and edits out photo-crashing pigeons before meticulously hanging the images in a private online gallery. Pluck pleasing stills from the virtual museum to hatch into 10 4"x6" prints, showing them off in frames or keeping them close to your heart in an oversized locket.
Inspired Photography sometimes offers promotions, but this Groupon still gets you the best deal available.
Weddings are Kara Selby's passion. She's been the bride in one, a guest at several, and the lead photographer at more than 50 matrimonial celebrations. This extensive experience has imbued Kara with an instinctive understanding of these events as a whole, and has trained her to avoid common glitches, such as forgetting to blur the face of an undercover best man. With the help of other shutterbugs at Inspired Photography, Kara captures the intimate details of a bride's big day, from close-up shots of bridal jewellery and bouquets to posed portraits of the wedding party and candid shots of the couple's first dance.
Kara also exports her signature style to portrait photography, snapping heartwarming photos of pregnant mothers, newborns, and families. She frequently swaps traditional eye-level portraits for quirky canted angles and aerial shots of sleeping babies in colour and black and white. Her studio also plays host to playful boudoir shoots that often incorporate props ranging from stilettos and pearls to guitars and umbrellas.
Not content merely to stay behind the lens, Kara passes her substantial image savvy on to pupils via hands-on, in-studio workshops that help nascent photographers get acquainted with their camera’s operations and functions through interactive tutorials and by reading embarrassing diary entries from the operations manual.
