The best photographers rise to the top by practicing, while second-best photographers rise to the top by shooting blackmail photos of the first-best. Snap like a champ with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-hour photo shoot, plus one 11"x14" print, from Photography by Jena' in Boerne (a $300 value).
Photography by Jena' owner and professional photographer Natalie Sterneckert expertly ensnares memories in both classic and contemporary modes, putting babies, children, and families at ease in a fun, professional atmosphere. Clients and Kodachrome crackerjacks hash out details of the shoot during a pre-session phone consultation, determining locations and scheduling when and where to return captured souls. Photographees can corral innovative shutterbug services at any location within 40 miles of the studio, or they can pose at a site on the 20-acre gallery grounds. The lens-person pleasure dome plays host to a plethora of backdrops and props, including a gristmill, antique cars, buses, hadron colliders, a footbridge, and a weathered wooden dock next to a scenic pond.
Each shoot accommodates up to 10 subjects, and patrons can change into four of their fiercest ensembles for their hour in the limelight. The resulting 11"x14" print is ready for pickup three to four weeks after ordering, giving the memorialized enough time to cultivate healthy beards, as well as the opportunity to reminisce about a simpler time when they didn't have healthy beards.
