What You'll Get
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but thoughts cost a penny—and often less depending on whose thoughts they are. With today's Groupon, $60 gets you an hour-long on-location or in-studio photo session and eight retouched digital images from Jeph DeLorme Photography (a $480 value).
Skilled shutterbug Jeph DeLorme specializes in making his subjects feel at ease. You’ll get 60 minutes to perfect your poses either in his studio or on location ($225), and eight digital, retouched, high-definition images ($30 each, plus $15 for the disk). You'll get the copyright to them, so you can print as many as you like. You can also opt to apply the $480 value toward other imaging needs, including wedding photography.

This package is your opportunity to upgrade the framed family photos that have been hanging in your parents’ home for the past 600 years. Now that you aren’t riddled with acne or plagued with a six-year-old’s gummy smile, split the cost with your sibs and surprise your folks with a more up-to-date snapshot just in time for the holidays.
There’s always an excuse to say cheese: you’re engaged, you’re pregnant, you graduated high school, or you placed in the regional knitting finals. Even if you’re not commemorating a major milestone, you might need a professional headshot to further your career; actresses, authors, musicians, clowns, dancers, comedians, and other performers can all benefit from quality prints.
Note: For on-location sessions, Jeph DeLorme Photography will travel 20 miles from the studio; beyond 20 miles will incur an additional $20 travel fee.
Jeph DeLorme has been profiled on MarthaStewartWeddings.com. Though there aren’t any user reviews of his photography skills on the Internet, clients rave about the professional results in testimonials taken from his site:
- I hired Jeph to do some shots of my 3 year old and his photos turned out fantastic! Jeph was not only a complete, patient and encouraging director of his young model, but a pleasure for his eager parent to work with. I highly, highly reccomend [sic] Jeph. Let him work his magic. – Matt Ross
- When I left your office I felt quite beautiful, and actually, sexier, than I have felt in some time. This was a side effect that I could not have known to anticipate and a priceless bonus. I am still walking around with a residual "sass." – one of Scottsdale’s finest
- Jeph is an outstanding photographer in many ways. Not only was he able to deliver a quality product, but his ability to create a comfortable and creative environment was crucial to the nature of my work. – Greg Bilbro
Photo-Sass and How to Spend It
One of Jeph’s clients writes that she felt so great after her photo session that she was left with “residual sass.” Here’s a look at how long residual sass can last and what to expect:
Day 1, 100% sass: Numerous women stop you on the street to hear your sassified advice on men, careers, and which horses look fast today.
Day 2, 82% sass: Officemates are ecstatic when you tell the boss, “And I know you’re giving everybody free teeth whitening,” and then everyone gets free teeth whitening.
Day 6, 45% sass: Your roommate tires of constantly being called “sister friend” and being exhorted to “kick out Franklin,” even though Franklin is a pet turtle.
Day 10, 22% sass: Your sassy finger-snapping is mistaken for a gang sign.
Day 14, 4% sass: With your last remaining bit of sass, you solve the healthcare crisis before exploding into a ball of purifying white light.
