The best photographers rise to the top by practicing, while second-best photographers rise to the top by shooting blackmail photos of the first-best. Snap like a champ with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a portrait session for up to four people and a photo package, including one 8"x10" print and two 5"x7" prints, from LifeArt Imaging (a $290 total value). The session can take place in the studio, or on location within 45 miles of the studio for a $50 fee.
LifeArt Imaging’s professional photographers creatively choreograph artistic group portraits. Capture stills of up to four subjects in a 60- to 90-minute studio shoot (a $150 value), which allows for up to three wardrobe changes, so that families can swap-out matching sweaters or newborns can sub-in flashier onesies. After the shoot, schedule a follow-up visit to peruse the photos from the session; customers can choose their best shots for on-site printing of one 8"x10" photo (a $64 value) and two 5"x7" photos (a $38 value each).
Located in the heart of historic Northern Liberties, right in the center of the Piazza at Schmidts, LifeArt Imaging’s beautiful studio welcomes guests with more than 1,000 square feet of open studio space. A dressing room is on hand for wardrobe switches and primping, and a full kitchen replenishes sagging smiles with a quick snack. Free parking is also available on-site.
LifeArt Imaging’s lead photographer, Stacy, spent years searching for a photographer to capture her six children’s growth from infancy to maturity. Constantly disappointed by her findings, she took up a camera herself and has since aided many mothers in similar situations. At 1,500 square feet, the studio Stacy helms has plenty of room to prevent subjects from feeling confined during their shoots, and its full bathroom offers privacy for primping or reviewing the difference between a smile and a sneeze. Nestled in the Piazza at Schmidts in the Northern Liberties neighborhood, the studio’s location near varied sources of family-friendly fun is another attraction, although photographers can also shoot clients in their homes or in outdoor venues’ flattering natural light. Afterward, the studio can make prints of images or emblazon them on purses and photo albums.
