Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $49, you get a 45-minute photography session (up to a $150 value) and $150 worth of portraits at McDonald Studio Inc. (up to a $300 total value). This Groupon is valid at two studio locations. For on-location shoots, photographers will travel within 30 miles of the 46601 zip code.
Named the Favorite Photographer in the South Bend Tribune's 2008 Readers' Choice Awards, family-owned-and-operated McDonald Studio has been preserving smiles and memories in the Michiana area for 150 years. Memorialize mugs in the click-crazed comforts of McDonald Studio's studio lighting or at an on-location site of choice, including a home, park, or tinfoil castle.
Adventurous subjects can document a dip into icy Lake Michigan or a familial stroll through Notre Dame's campus—a great way to capture a St. Patrick's Day shot of Grandpa sparring with an imaginary leprechaun. The $150 worth of prints gets photogenic subjects a variety of print packages, such as three 8''x10''s, one 8''x10'', and two 5''x7''s, or two 8''x10''s and 16 wallet-size photographs.
