Digital technology has allowed for the introduction of many new art forms, just as Leonardo da Vinci once predicted on his blog. Upload a masterpiece with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a holiday photo-shoot package at Kaiser Custom Images in Chesapeake (a $125 total value). The package includes:
- 30-minute, in-studio photo shoot with one pose and up to six people (a $50 value; $15 charge for each additional person)
- 25 Slimline 4”x8” holiday cards (a $25 value)
- One 5”x7” print (a $50 value)
A silver-place winner in the photography-studio category of The Virginian-Pilot’s 2011 Best of Hampton Roads awards, Kaiser Custom Images earns local plaudits backed by more than 20 years of combined experience capturing memories. In a 3,000-square-foot studio, skilled photographers collaborate with clients to set up the shoot’s themes before snapping a slew of pictures to get the perfect pose of up to six people wearing everyday attire, Sunday best, or matching invisibility cloaks. After choosing the preferred portrait, the studio emblazons the image onto a 5”x7” print and a batch of 4”x8” Slimline cards that personalize festive greetings with themes including winter holidays, Valentine’s Day, birthday invites, and more. Photos will be ready about one week after the shoot; patrons with designs for handing out holiday cards to friends, family, and abominable Christmas trees should make an appointment soon, as sessions for Christmas-card orders must take place by December 5, 2011.
