A photographic memory is both a blessing and a curse: you can remember everything, but you can't change the memories to make it so that you were the one with the gavel and wig. Let your memories embellish the past, but capture the truth for your records with today's deal: for $65, you get a one-hour portrait session and high-resolution CD of images at Joel Marion Photography (a $500 value). Your 60-minute session will take place at a location of your choice within 20 miles of the 63021 zipcode.

For the past 40 years, Joel Marion has photographed babies both inside and outside of their mothers, smiling children, nubile high-school seniors, engaged lovey-doveys, puzzled pets, corporate portraits, and a great deal more. He has also obtained photographic evidence of the existence of mythical creatures such as high school Sasquatches, Fran Drescher, and Katie Couric. Joel is particularly skilled at capturing life's special moments—the subtle looks or spontaneous gestures that imbue a still photo with a spark of life—using an unobtrusive, documentary approach, while still providing a fine-art gloss to the end results. After your session, share your shots with family and friends via a password-protected online gallery. You'll also receive a high-resolution CD containing your entire photo session (it will have at least 50 images on it), which you can edit, print, and distribute as you like.

Posing for professional pictures is like taking the stairs or sending a hand-written thank you card—it takes a bit more effort, but it makes you look better in the eyes of others. With today's Groupon to Joel Marion Photography, you can capture happy memories in the best possible light and pass down something to future generations besides male pattern baldness and female pattern beardness. Call ahead to schedule your photo session.

CDs may be mailed for an additional $5 payable on the day of the photo session, and finished prints (including photoshop retouching) can be ordered at additional cost. This Groupon is not valid for weddings, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, or Batman mitzvahs.

Joel Marion Photography

Through his company—Joel Marion Photography—the autodidact has become one of the fortunate few whose avocation becomes their vocation, unlike Michael Jordan, who longed to dunk donuts instead of basketballs. Throughout his career, he has worked in fashion and advertising in St. Louis. By working with area clients for more than 30 years, Joel brings an experienced and creative approach to family, baby, high-school senior, and head-shot portraits. His wife Carol manages the studio while photographer and design and Photoshop specialist, Kelly Tucker, shoots sessions and helps their clientele create aesthetically pleasing compositions.
