What You'll Get
More undeniable than manmade structures and agrarian society, photography has single-handedly made humans more memorable. Today's Groupon provides proof of your existence more tangibly than accomplishments do. For $59, you get a portrait photography session (lasting up to an hour, a $75–$150 value ) and a high-quality 11x14 portrait mounted on artist board (a $299 value) from Jaffe Studio and Gallery on Poplar Avenue in East Memphis, up to a $449 value. Get your family of 15 together to politely pose as background for your real horse family in a meadow or bring your newborn babe to Jaffe for dazzling close-ups. This Groupon entitles you to visit Jaffe's accommodating studio (a $75 value) for an expertly equipped session. If you have a large number of people or animals you'd like to involve in the shoot, Jaffe Studio will decide on a case-by-case basis to allow some clients to use their Groupons for an on-location shoot (a $150 value) within the greater Memphis area. One to two weeks following the session, you will visit the studio by appointment for an audio-visual presentation, and choose the pose for your 11x14 mounted portrait. Call ahead to schedule your photo session.
While Jaffe's friendly crew didn't invent the camera, that doesn't mean they won't someday brainstorm the notion of a time-freezing cube in a parallel universe wherein cameras have yet to be invented. Jaffe Studio's staff of expert professionals has more than 30 years of experience when it comes to capturing the picturesque unity of a loving family, the innocence of juvenility, and the wonderment of a band of roving goat children. Nurturing directorial skills coax natural smiles out of newborns, soon-to-be mums, high-school seniors, families, and pets. A session can even commemorate the joys of marital engagement or the promise of potential that shines in a post-graduation tooth display.
Beaming portraiture makes taupe walls twice as pleasant to look at and stocks an Internet arsenal with readily shareable digital faces to email to friends and in-laws. Join in a long tradition of being caught on picture-paper just like prestigious photographees such as Tom Cruise and Thomas Cruise. Though in the past Jaffe Studio's stellar services were priced beyond the reach of many, the studio's everyday prices have gone down, and today's Groupon makes stirring portraiture even more attainable.
