Before photography, family memories were kept alive through annual reenactments of the year's best moments, despite Grandpa's continued miscasting as the mischievous puppy. Treasure your memories with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get a pre-session consultation, a one-hour, on-location family-portrait session, one 8"x10" print, and $55 toward additional prints from Natural Exposures Photography in Watertown (a $377 total value). Locations will be within 10 miles of the studio and are chosen by the photographer prior to the shoot.
At Natural Exposures, professional photographer Gaye Hilsenrath employs her years of photojournalism experience snapping for clients, such as the New York Times, to capture high-quality individual and group portraits across a variety of scenic landscapes. Following a consultation with Gaye, families of up to six will travel to a pre-chosen location for one hour of poses, smiles, and coordinated nostril flares. Past six subjects, family members can be added for an additional fee. After an interim wait of around one week, families can view proofs and select the photo that best demonstrates their blink resistant abilities, developing it into a full-grown 8"x10" print (a $72 value). Subjects can also apply their included $55 credit toward à la carte prints that can be digitally enhanced at an additional cost to add color splashes or to remove blemishes, shadows, and strangers masquerading as third cousins (starting at $52 for a 5"x7").
Natural Exposures Photography
At Natural Exposures Photography, founder and professional photographer Gaye Hilsenrath relies on natural lighting in outdoor settings to document milestones with clarity and realism. Most photo projects begin with face-to-face consultations, during which clients can voice their desires for the shoot. After the on-location photo session, the staff helps immortalize subjects' special moments by putting together leather-bound photo albums, custom framing images, and chiseling families' faces into Mount Rushmore.
