A picture is worth a thousand words, making photographs and stick-figure sketches the easiest solutions to looming dissertation deadlines. Take advantage of efficient visual-communication strategies with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour individual portrait session from Tarchala Photography at a location of your choice within 25 miles of Springfield (a $50 value).
Tarchala’s professional photographer and memory-preservation specialist, John Charles, has a quarter century of experience capturing special moments with his lens before they flee into forgetfulness. The experienced shutterbug is willing to travel to many locations to choreograph elegant portraits, including a verdant garden or a less verdant DMV. During a one-hour individual session, subjects can ham it up solo for the camera in as many poses and outfits as time will allow. Several snapshots are taken to ensure that life’s precious milestones are conveyed artfully—such as when a high-school senior dons a cap and gown or when the family dog realizes the vacuum won't eat its tail. After the session, clients receive online access to all of the images from the photo shoot on a website that’s password protected to maintain privacy.
