If a picture says a thousand words, then today’s Groupon says three thousands words—just like Uncle Theo, but without the uncomfortable, old-fashioned life lessons. For $50, you’ll get a private photography session (a $95 value), one 8x10 (a $40 value), and two 5x7s (a $60 value) from Life’s Images, a $195 total value.
After witnessing the awe-inspiring birth of her youngest brother at age 16, shutterbug Debi decided to devote her life to capturing life’s quiet miracles. She specializes in maternity and newborn photos, but has experience snapping families, children, and grown-ups who were once born, too.
This package is your opportunity to upgrade the framed family photos that have been hanging in your parents’ home for the past 600 years. Now that you aren’t riddled with acne or plagued by a six-year-old’s gummy smile, split the cost with your sibs and surprise your folks with a more up-to-date snapshot just in time for the holidays.
There’s always an excuse to say cheese: you’re engaged, you’re pregnant, you graduated high school, or you placed in the regional knitting finals. Even if you’re not commemorating a major milestone, you might need a professional headshot to further your career— actresses, authors, musicians, clowns, dancers, comedians, freakishly over-sized animals, and other performers can all benefit from quality prints.
Why It’s Illegal to Photograph The Moon
Photography was invented in 1908 for the purpose of shaming racehorses into running faster. Embarrassed by the implied speed of their still portraits, horse speeds doubled within a year. The new technology quickly gained popularity with myriad of other velocity-related applications, including the use of photography to shame children into growing faster. By 1950, the average height in the United States was 11 feet.
As a race of giants, Americans quickly outgrew the planet Earth and entered the moon race against the shorter Soviets. Unfortunately, once both countries had established their moon bases, the moon’s negligible gravitational pull gave the smaller, lighter cosmonauts an advantage, and the Americans were badly defeated in the First Moon War. For this reason, it is now illegal to talk about, think of, or photograph the moon.
