What You'll Get
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 deal: for $69, you get an ultimate portrait package from the bionic-eyed team of Julie Luehrs and Tait DeBaca at Photo Element, a $540 total value. You'll get three portrait sessions (for singles or couples, a $150 value per session), three viewing sessions, three 5"x7" prints (a $30 value per print), a digital web slideshow with each session, plus two social-network-posting pictures per session.
Shutter and love bugs Julie Luehrs and Tait DeBaca's relationship developed like a roll of film after the pair met while working as assistants to a well-known photographer and author. The couple opened Photo Element in 2004 with the intent to capture the subtle pleasantries (smiles, eye twinkles, ghosts in the background, etc.) in their subjects. Throughout the three sessions, their calming demeanor will put you completely at ease, resulting in natural, gorgeous snapshots. The well-regarded studio works to build a relationship with its clientele by getting to know the subjects they shoot, even swapping the occasional crock-pot recipe.

About Photo Element Studio
Photo Element Studio is a photographer’s dream—the interior is a Rubik’s cube of different settings, colors, and backdrops, and the half-acre garden studio has rural, rustic charms such as a rushing creek and a tattered shed. For photographers Tait and Julie DeBaca, the studio is the setting for their family, newborn, and high-school-senior portrait sessions. Many of the photographs in the duo’s portfolio have saturated, contrasting colors, which help to accentuate the green trees and blue skies of an outdoor shoot or highlight the subjects’ faces and emotions of a black-and-white photo against a white backdrop. The photographers also let the sun's natural light impart a sense of warmth, but not like the one you get in your cheeks when someone catches you eating ice cream straight from the carton with your finger.
