What You'll Get
One way to get professional-quality self-portraits is to commit involuntary fanferflaughter and convince the mug-shot photographer to take a few extra. Today's Groupon saves you the trouble and expensive court fees. For $59, you get a professional, 90-minute, in-studio photo shoot ($200 value), copies of all your images on a CD, and an 8x10 retouched print of your best shot ($40 value) from the stylish sharpshooters at The Little Room Studio. You can use only one Groupon per visit, and no more than four of your friends, enemies, or youth soccer coaches may accompany you.
High-class photographs are perfect for any occasion when you need handout photos of yourself looking your best. With this deal, you can capture one to three looks with clothing and props, mixing and matching throughout the shoot against black or white backdrops. You'll get a complete CD record, typically 200–300 shots snapped, and a glossy 8x10 of your favorite pic retouched by Photoshop experts that know how to make you look fantastic or like you're throwing around a cement block with Willie Mays.
Located in a little room (224 square feet) at the top of a Spanish-style duplex in the Wilshire Vista neighborhood, The Little Room comes fully stocked with an array of props, camera, lights, strobes, speakers, changing rooms, ping-pong paddles, daffodils, and jellied SPAM. Inside The Little Room's little room are an infinite set of slightly littler rooms for slightly littler shoots and models. This boutique studio will shoot aspiring models, overly dramatic actors, mumbling bands, random passersby struck with a pose they just have to unload, and more or less anything you can coax, trap, or chase into the room and hold still long enough to powder.
The attentive pros at The Little Room shoot like the directors, actors, and graphic designers they are, collaborating with you to craft your face and body into an image of unlabored personality that radiates attitude. The air around you will become so thickly yourself, you can cut it with a knife and spread it on your toast. Yearbook photos will singe the page around them, casting directors will be unable to avert their eyes from your steely gaze, and the corporate photo directory will tremble at the might of your barely concealed chest hair.

About The Little Room Studio
Photographers Nati and Eddie want clients to feel as comfortable as possible, so instead of hunting for an old warehouse, the ladies put their studio in a Spanish-style duplex. They named it The Little Room Studio—a place that feels more like a friend's place than a commercial photography space.
Despite its modest size, it packs plenty of gear to reveal subjects at their most photogenic, from colored backdrops to gel lighting to mirrors that reaffirm subjects are indeed the fairest of them all. This equipment transforms the space for each boudoir, pinup, and fashion shoot, allowing Nati and Eddie to stage all kinds of shots, from playful to edgy.
The photographers extend their expertise in composition to graphic design, developing materials such as business logos, postcards, and business cards. They also pair with a team of sound engineers, who offer audio services in an adjacent recording studio.
