A photographic memory is a blessing and a curse: one can remember everything, but none of it is open for interpretation. Share the burden every camera must carry with today's Groupon. For $35, you get a professional photography session, print package, and one digital copy from studiolano (a $135 value), located in historic Ybor. This Groupon is valid for a one-hour studio session ($60), one 8”x10” print ($13), one 5”x7” print ($7), eight wallet prints ($15), and one personal digital copy ($25) of one selected photo. Tax and USPS shipping of prints is included (average of $15).
Quality photos capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings much more efficiently then papier-mâché sculptures. At studiolano, photographer April Catalano utilizes her many years of experience to photograph subjects with a microscopic attention to detail. During a one-hour session at studiolano’s fully equipped studio, April will rattle off 50–75 shots of multiple poses with the speed and precision of a camera-fitted, laser-guided cheetah. Striking images are artfully captured with an uncommon eye to provide game-changing glimpses of the subject’s pleasant disposition that can’t be replicated with an emoticon-riddled letter of recommendation. After the photo shoot, customers place their package order from the comfort of their plush, indoor hammocks with online proof viewing and ordering.
This package is an opportunity to upgrade framed family photos that have been hanging in parents’ homes for the past 600 years. Now that photo subjects aren’t riddled with acne or plagued with a six-year-old’s gummy smile, they’ll be able to surprise their folks with a more up-to-date snapshot just in time for Mother’s Day and refrigerator-magnet season. Book your appointment by phone, by email, or on studiolano's website.
