Pretending that the photo models in your store-bought picture frame are members of your family will inevitably result in the fantasy becoming hilariously and/or terrifyingly real. Today's Groupon helps you avoid this fate by filling the frames with images of your own family instead: for $55, you get a one-hour photo session, three prints of your favorite image, plus 20% off additional purchases from Mark Janzen Photography (a $415 total value). Opt for a one-hour portrait session (a $250 value) at your home, in an urban setting, or in a rural setting—provided that it is within a 30-minute drive from Janzen's HQ. This Groupon is good for a session containing nine or fewer subjects; groups of 10 or more will incur additional charges.
Mark Janzen eschews the centuries-old photographic-portrait traditions of posing figures in front of static backdrops, opting instead for kinetic imagery that captures the vivacity and personality of each subject. Reenact your favorite scene from Serpico with your kids in a Fresno back alley or share a laugh with loved ones under the judgmental glare of an evergreen. With an eye for natural moments, silly spontaneity, and a nose for unforgettable images, Janzen and his magic box will capture candid photos free of the stiff lifelessness so often seen in memento-mori daguerreotypes from turn-of-the-century-statue funerals.
Once Janzen has immortalized your soul, you'll sit down with the photographer to decide which image will be reproduced in one 11" x 14" print (a $125 value) and two 5" x 7" prints (a $40 value). The same image must be selected for all three prints. Groupon buyers also get 20% off additional purchases from Mark Janzen Photography made during their print-ordering session. Corral your kin and call ahead to schedule your family's foray into photographic foreverness.
