Although using quantum-leaping lasers to divide segments of the space-time continuum would theoretically capture a slice of life, its repercussions could implode the universe. Safely and professionally preserve moments and memories with today's deal: for $35, you get a 30-minute portrait session ($100) and a Beginnings Package ($49), which includes one 8"x10", two 5"x7"s, and eight wallet-sized prints, from Portrait Scene (a $149 total value). Photographers have announced specific dates—and will add more dates and locations—for photo shoots at scenic area parks. Schedule your session on one of the following dates:
- Tuesday, August 24, or Thursday, September 30, at the Wegerzyn Gardens in Dayton
- Tuesday, August 31, at the Aullwood Garden in Englewood
- Tuesday, October 5, at the Cox Arboretum in Dayton
Backed with more than 40 years of combined experience, the shutterbugs at Portrait Scene are skilled at capturing a wide variety of memories, personalities, and sweater patterns for posterity. Let fresh air add fresh flush to your cheeks during an outdoor session at any of the three locations, all of which are known for their diverse population of plants, birds, and butterflies that never blink when the flash hits their eyes. Once the outing settles into the alfresco setting, the studio's professional picture takers will coax a cool-looking smile from your lips more easily than you can say "soy-based cheese analogue." Capture the essence of a child, pet, or high school senior, or invite your entire family to capture the group at its best: smiling, silent, and glossy.
Following your photo shoot, you can view your images online. Based on your gander of the goods, you will then be able to select your favorite photos to have printed. Call ahead to schedule an appointment, and then hit the comedy section of the movie store to start defining your dimples.
To be photographed in 2010, shoots must be scheduled by 10/11/2010. Outdoor shoots will resume in spring 2011. Shoots recommended to be scheduled at least one week in advance.
Smile America Portraits
In the last 40 years, Smile America Portraits' photographers have helped to memorialize special moments in the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults across the country. By constantly working with families, they have mastered the art of calming toddlers and keeping parents still enough to say or even pasteurize cheese. Outdoor shoots make use of natural tones, such as those of crystal-blue lake waters and green, leafy trees. In the spring months, photos brim with the pastel buds of tulips and the shine of bluebirds applying makeup for the first time all year.
