Like wedding gowns and genetics, photographs are passed down from one generation to the next, usually concealed beneath the residue of historically popular finger foods. Keep personal histories safe from residual stains with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a one-hour, on-location photo session and a CD with 35 retouched images from Lauren Tomasella Photography (a $445 total value). Locations must be within the Huntsville and Madison area, or an additional travel fee of $0.50 per mile may apply.
The wide and imaginative photojournalistic lens of Lauren Tomasella corrals natural light and a keen directorial intuition to document big events and magnify the smaller moments within them. Clients can pose as their favorite bendable straw or assume a candid countenance during the one-hour photo session (a $95 value), which spreads its frames across actions to chronicle a spectrum of shots.
On-location shoots allow the subjects to glow within their natural environment, as Lauren's colorful, creative eye aims to capture a narrative from one shot to the next, depicting the expectant glow of maternity, the range of a newborn's emotions, or the tumultuous collapse of a popular jug band. After shutterbugging, customers will receive a CD containing 35 retouched images to preserve memories for digital posterity (a $350 value).
