A photographic memory is a blessing and a curse: you can remember everything, but you still can't be the one with the gavel and the wig. Let your memories embellish the past, but capture the truth for your records with today's deal: for $40, you get a one-hour photo session and a disc of five edited images with full print rights (a $160 value) from Maas Photo Studio. Choose to redeem your Groupon in the Beresford studio, or schedule an appointment for the photographers to come to you like lucid dreams of Baconnaise (so long as the location is within five miles of Sioux Falls and 30 miles of Beresford).
Maas Photo Studio's professional photographers ("soul stealers" in some regional vernacular) are experts at coaxing fussy parents, blasé babies, and scowling high-school seniors into perfectly posed photographic subjects. After your one-hour photo session (up to a $60 value), which can focus on whole families and Lone Rangers alike, choose five of your favorite images to be or not to be digitally edited and burned onto a disc for your keeping (a $100 value). You'll have full rights to print these images as many times as you like. For an extra $100, you can get the remainder of the unedited images on a disc, as well as 25% off on any prints. Extra shoot time will cost $20 per hour.
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, musicians, clowns, and other performers can all benefit from quality prints. Photographic portraiture makes an excellent gift for the upcoming onslaught of summer holidays and events and is a terrific way to reveal your best side in a controlled scenario while ensuring that you'll have at least one Facebook photo of yourself not hoisting a red plastic cup.
