Before modern photography, portrait-seeking subjects would cover themselves in year-end financial figures to meet the requirements for being xeroxed. Capture more accurate self-copies with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a portrait package, including processing fees, at Olan Mills Portrait Studio’s locations in Kmart stores in Chula Vista and Oceanside (a $150 value). Each portrait package includes:
- A photographic sitting
- One 16”x20” or one 10”x13” print
- One 8”x10” print
- Two 5”x7” prints
- Eight wallet-sized prints
- A favorite pose portrait disc<p>
Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills, Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ear-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. At a follow-up viewing session, the client will pick their favorite pose to preserve for posterity in the form of one 16”x20” or 10”x13” print, one 8”x10” print, two 5”x7” prints, 8 wallet-size prints, and a portrait disc. Chosen portraits generally arrive within two to three weeks, and unselected poses will be held at the studio for up to two weeks and online for up to two years after the session for easy re-orders. Unlike fast-drying concrete, Olan Mills Portrait Studio offers a complete redo on any unsatisfactory work.
