A photographic memory is a blessing and a curse: you can remember everything, but none of it is open for interpretation. Share the burden every camera must carry with today's Groupon: for $39, you get an on-location family photo shoot, a 5"x7" print, and an online proofing gallery of images from PBJ Candids (a $175 value).
Winner of the National Photo Awards in 2005 with photography published in Martha Stewart Wedding magazine, PBJ Candids specializes in snapping artful portraits for special occasions and mantle accessorizing. Pose for photos with the family to commemorate the spring holidays, including Easter, Passover, and All-Pastels' Day.
After arriving at a preselected picturesque backdrop (a park in the Silver Lake/Echo Park area), a skilled shutterbug will carefully confine the precious poses and seductive pouts of up to six people and their pets. Additional modeling mavens can come to the shoot for an extra $10 per person.
Afterward, subjects will be equipped with an online gallery of images for proofing, one of which they will select to be immortalized in a 5"x7" print, perfect to be framed for wall display or mounted onto a cereal box in order to feign notoriety at grade-school reunions.
PBJ Candids Photography
Photos with a "cinematic fashion feel"—that's how Jennifer Emery of PBJ Candids Photography describes her style. With a background in acting, she certainly has a grasp of the dramatic. Whether shooting headshots, weddings, or portraits, she uses that approach to infuse images with excitement. During her 20 years as a photographer, her unique style has landed her work in renowned publications such as Martha Stewart Weddings and Pasadena Magazine.
A highly adaptable photographer, she can customize her style to suit virtually any photographic opportunity. That includes live events, corporate photography, and creative pin-up girl or boudoir sessions. With her cinematic touch, she also creates art prints, photo jewelry, and photo coasters. As a photographer with a boundless passion for the art, she also leads workshops, teaching others how to operate digital cameras, compose images, and return the souls accidentally captured on film.
