Quality photos leave the subjects looking their best, unlike mouth-staining popsicles and confrontational shopping tussles. Practice your aggression-melting smile with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a beach portrait session on Mustang Island (a $169 value) and one 8"x10" print (a $42 value) with a print mounting (a $17 value) from M&J Photography (a $228 total value). Customers must schedule their portrait session in advance.
The professionals at M&J Photography use artistically trained eyes and up-to-date technology to help families preserve their precious moments without requiring tubs of expensive amber. Portrait subjects-in-training receive an initial consultation in studio or over the phone to ensure clothing, hairdos, and smile wideness match the timbre of the crashing ocean waves, as well as a comprehensive how-to packet replete with photo tips, directions, and photographer contact info. Once stationed amid Mustang Island’s sea scenery, the trigger-happy photographer spends 30–45 minutes capturing sand-inspired smiles of up to 10 wind-blown models. After the shutter has clicked its last, customers are invited to schedule a return to the studio to select the winning photo to be transfigured into a mounted 8"x10" print, available in black and white, full color, or scratch ‘n' sniff.
Mary Helen Johnston of M&J Photography strives to capture all aspects of her subjects’ personalities, nabbing senior portraits, wedding snapshots, family profiles, and sports-team photos. Before shoots, the photographer guides clients through a complimentary consultation over the phone or in the studio, during which models-to-be can plot hair, makeup, and cravat placement. Helen's photo shoots typically last from 30 to 60 minutes, and outdoor shoots usually take place two hours before sunset, when natural light is at its most flattering. M&J Photography can also take motion pictures with an array of videography services that capture images and emotional tenor alike, thereby creating a keepsake more potent than cave hieroglyphics depicting a prehistoric wedding reception.
