Preserving a moment in time can be done by displaying pictures in photo albums, bronzing baby booties, or soaking memories in formaldehyde. Find a safe solution for holding onto keepsake moments with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a 30-minute in-studio photo session (a $125 value), an 11"x14" mounted signature-finish photo, two 5"x7" traditionally finished prints, and a social image file, including any necessary retouching, at Skipping Stone Studio in Southlake (a $450 total value). There's no limit on the number of people allowed in the photo session beyond sheer spatial volume, though groups of six or more may incur additional charges.
Pamela Peck and her two accomplished colleagues freeze families in time and convert them into mantel-worthy art from their 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 such as Ragnarok or the Hindenburg. Once the photographers determine the best backdrop, the best possible lighting, and the least clichéd pose, they'll snap about 30–40 pictures and then help you choose the best one at your viewing appointment. After a retouching phase, you'll end up with a mounted signature-finish 11"x14" print for your wall (a $225 value), two 5"x7" traditionally finished copies for your photo album (a $100 value), and one social image file that you can disseminate to friends, extended family, and rival regiments in your Civil War re-enactment society.
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.
