Before photography, yearbooks contained row after row of students’ thumbprints, and passports were issued with connect-the-dots puzzles to be completed by the bearer. Capture a more recognizable copy of your identity with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get an on-location family photo shoot and 20 edited digital images from Memories by Meghan Photography (a $100 value).
Eschewing the harsh brightness and formality of studio lights, Memories by Meghan Photography manipulates natural light to etch images with the vivid, luminous quality of memory. Up to four family members put their best smiles forward during the one-hour photo session, which can be arranged at various locations in Temecula or Murrieta—or, for an additional fee, in other areas, including Sun City, Lake Elsinore, Canyon Lake, and Wildomar. Additional participants can be added to the shoot for a $25 fee per person. After her camera’s done digitizing your likeness, Meghan edits 20 images and loads them onto a photo-file CD, grants access to an online gallery, and indicates via smoke signals that customers get 25% off additional prints ordered up to 30 days from receipt of the edited images.
