In the days before mirrors, baseball players would collect their own baseball cards so that they'd always know what they looked like regardless of slugging percentage. Enjoy the preservative nature of photographs with today's Groupon from Sherri Griffin Photography, either in her studio or at the location of your choosing. Choose between the following options:
- For $69, you get a one-hour black-and-white film session with one 8"x10" print (a $175 value).
- For $59, you get a one-hour color photo session with one 8"x10" or two 5"x7" prints (up to a $185 value).
There is a maximum of seven people per session, and each additional person is $25 each. Every additional hour beyond the first is $50. This Groupon is valid in the studio or within the Birmingham area only.
During the course of 60 minutes, pose, preen, and take direction in front of a high-resolution camera and enjoy the experience of working with a professional photographer. Pose in Sherri's studio or at a location in the Birmingham area, such as the botanical gardens, in your home, or sprawled across the finish line of Talladega in an asphalt jumpsuit wearing windshield goggles. Once the shoot is finished, you can enjoy the fruits of this labor in the form of one 8"x10" ($40 for color; $50 for black-and-white) or two 5"x7" ($60 for color) finished gallery prints. Sherri shoots in two ways: black-and-white photos are shot on film, printed in the lab, and hand-painted with oils whereas color photos are taken on a digital camera and can be printed in color, black-and-white, sepia tone, hand-tinted, or canvassed, in order to replicate the family portrait you had painted in 1847.
Sherri opened her business 25 years ago, bringing a wealth of knowledge and turbo-charged photography senses amassed during her studies at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and The Art Institute of Atlanta. Let Sherri put her talents and magical time-freezing apparatus to use. After all, photography fits into an important realm of commemoration, as it makes tangible the fleeting moments of a fast-moving life, especially if you're a professional speed skater or an actual comet. Put a paperweight on your reminiscences with professionally snapped portraiture that can elevate the charm of any mantle, hallway, or sturdy sweater vest.
