Photographs provide a more concrete way of recording recollections than sketching portraits in sand or dictating memoirs to an empty jam jar. Preserve precious memories with today's Groupon: for $100, you get a 20-minute headshot session and one high-resolution digital file at Stuart-Rodgers Photography (a $300 value). Redeem this deal at any of Stuart-Rodgers Photography's three locations in Chicago, Evanston, or Highland Park.
Stuart-Rodgers Photography provides a relaxed studio atmosphere, designed to make subjects feel at ease so that individual personalities can be captured, but not held against their will. The 20-minute headshot session catches countenances in executive, model, or portrait poses that can be easily printed out and hung on a child's ceiling to remind them that you're always watching. After the photographee selects their favorite shot from a computer gallery, Stuart-Rodgers's image wizards color-correct and retouch the chosen portrait. Within five business days, the studio sends an email containing a pristine digital copy of the photo, which a binary stork deposits with care in customers' inboxes.
Betty Stuart always had a talent for documentation. After graduating from Northwestern University's prestigious Medill School of Journalism in 1940, Stuart applied her shrewd journalistic eye to the field of photography. As she took on more professional jobs, she honed her skills behind the lens and learned how to blend into the background of weddings and other events so as not to interfere with candid moments.
Before long, Stuart joined forces with her husband, John Boyd Rodgers, to found Stuart-Rodgers Photography. The nascent company soon added corporate, commercial, and school photography to its list of services and, due to high demand for the couple’s innovative journalistic approach, expanded to three locations throughout Chicagoland. Today, Stuart-Rodgers's team of professional photographers maintains elements of Stuart’s original photographic vision in every shot, including her knack for capturing angles that draw attention away from subjects’ unflattering tentacles.
