Photography has progressed exponentially over the past century with the development of digital cameras, faster shutter speeds, and smiling. Capture the latest trends of emotional technology with today’s Groupon: for $129, you get an on-location holiday family-portrait package from Melody Yazdani Photography (a $365 value). Sessions can be held in one of 11 service areas, with a $15 travel fee for locations outside these areas. The package includes:
- A one-hour on-location shoot with up to four subjects (a $225 value)
- One 11”x14” print (a $90 value)
- 50 custom 5”x7” holiday cards (a $50 value)
Fine-art photographer Melody Yazdani flashes her camera to immortalize a variety of subjects in photo form, including families, mothers-to-be, newborns, and wedding couples. With the holiday family-portrait package, Melody travels to a location of her clients’ choice, such as inside their home or the outside of an abandoned steel mill overrun by raccoons, before commencing the one-hour shoot. Up to four kin concentrate on being candid and spontaneous for the camera and may choose to do two or three posed shots. Within two weeks of their session, clients can peruse an online gallery to choose their favorite images for printing and posting on Facebook. The choicest of photos is then inscribed on an 11”x14” print and 50 custom holiday cards, with such remarks as “Season’s Greetings” or “Trapped in pastoral holiday wonderland. Send police.”
Hi-res digital-image copies, blemish removal, and portrait enhancements are not included in this package, but may be purchased at an additional fee. Shoots can include more than four members but require an additional $25 per extra subject.
