When babies laugh, strangers stop to listen, cherubs receive their wings, and all kittens within earshot get jobs as calendar models. Capture cuteness with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a New Life baby-photo package from Life Studio in Waverly (a $150 value).
Professional photographer Colyn Niemeyer specializes in capturing images of babies and children, bringing out the inimitable personality of each child and highlighting his or her unique birth power. A registered nurse with extensive knowledge of the newborn world, Niemeyer preserves memories during six private photo sessions throughout the first year of your child's life, starting with an elegant maternity image. Next comes a newborn session, after which photo shoots occur at three months, six months, nine months, and 12 months—each episode lasting up to two hours. Proud parents receive 25 custom birth announcements, an 8"x16" keepsake birth announcement, and, at the end of all the modeling, a 5"x5" first-year photo book.
The comfortable, relaxed sessions may include up to six people per shoot, and occur either in Life Studio's studio or outdoors upon request. Each shoot also includes 20–40 images placed in a private online gallery—enough portraits to send out a new baby-themed holiday card every year until college graduation, forcing everyone to conclude you've created an ageless demigod.
