What You'll Get
It's about that time of year to take care of the most cherished of springtime traditions: providing evidence that your child attends high school and is alive, well, and standing naturally in front of a visually appealing backdrop. For $39, the current junior/upcoming senior in your life gets a 40- to 60-minute in-studio photo session (a $55 value) at Skipping Stone Studio in Southlake. You will receive a bevy of prints, including two 5"x7" traditionally finished prints (an $80 value), 32 die-cut wallet photos (a $125 value), one digital image for use on Facebook (a $50 value), and an additional digital image for the school yearbook (a $50 value), giving this Groupon a $360 total value. Retouches are also included.
During the session, you get access to fine-art photographer Pamela Peck and her two equally accomplished colleagues, as well as a 3,000-square-foot studio. These seasoned shutterbugs will give you the full benefit of their expertise, such as suggesting a field of sunflowers over less popular backdrops like Ragnarok or the Hindenburg. Once the photographers determine the best backdrop, the best-possible lighting, and the least-clichéd pose, they'll snap about 30 to 40 pictures. Post-shoot, they'll help you choose the best shot at your viewing appointment and give it appropriate retouches. You'll end up with a pile of mini-prints, as well as two 5"x7" traditionally finished copies that can be swapped for valuable baseball cards with naive neighborhood children.
Kids grow up so fast these days, especially if they've been irradiated. While you'll probably take plenty of washed-out vacation photos, blurry birthday snapshots, and harshly lit mug shots in the coming years, today's Groupon ensures you'll always have at least one picture where your young lady or strapping lad looks like they do in the burnished golden light of your memory.
Yearbook photos will be sent directly to your teen's school. All prints are limited to the same single pose.

About Skipping Stone Studio
A glance across Skipping Stone Studio's portfolio relates stories of families, newborns, and high-school seniors through vivid imagery. To capture these memories, three passionate photographers snap shots within a 3,000-square-foot studio. Here, camera wielders and customers work together to select the perfect backdrops, poses, and pronunciations of the word "cheese." Alternatively, the photographers can also travel to remote locations to stage shoots within homes or particularly attractive forests. Skipping Stone's staff then professionally edits individual images before transforming them into prints, collages, and photo albums.
