Nowadays, most people get their photograph taken with their family, breaking the old tradition of getting pictures taken with a pet betta fish or voodoo doll. Make memories with people you care about with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-hour photo portrait session, two retouched images on a CD, and one printed 8"x10" photo at Randall Studio in Bolingbrook (a $220 value). Appointments can be made on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Professional photographers John and Christine Randall tag-team weddings, family photos, and new babies with friendly photo sessions. While one photographer works the camera, the other gets models situated for a one-hour photo session for one person or the whole family. Five days after posing, you can go to a password-protected area on Randall Studio's website to view the best 20 to 30 photos and destroy the worst photos on a BBQ grill. Then you can select your favorite two pictures to be retouched and put on a CD. Retouching includes teeth whitening, blemish removing, and editing in tuxedos for dads who didn’t dress right. Ten days later, the CD and your favorite photo printed as an 8"x10" print will be available to be picked up. If someone wants more photos, they can order more right on the website.
