Photographs of precious moments are the greatest gifts relatives can leave behind for their descendants, aside from genes for cowlick-resistant hair or hints to where the inheritance is buried. Preserve familial memories with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a family portrait session (a $240 value) and one 11"x14" print (a $390 value) at Towne Photography.

Helmed by professional photographer and all-around creative dynamo Chris Keating, Towne Photography’s staff of shutterbugs deftly forges one-of-a-kind family portraits that capture the personality of each subject. Sitters assemble at the studio for a pre-session design appointment that enables their photographer to develop a custom game plan for the shoot, drawing inspiration from the clients’ personalities, ideas, and collections of '80s rock-star figurines. As an unlimited number of kinfolk can be part of the shoot, patrons can choose to create multi-generational shots on a grand scale or intimate snaps of nuclear families. Once models have worn out their cheese-saying muscles, a photo selection meeting unveils the results of the shoot and grants families a chance to select a shot in which everyone is smiling and blinking simultaneously. The winning snap is transformed into a high-quality 11"x14" print. Towne Photography’s guarantee ensures customer satisfaction with the images and prints, and the company pledges to remake or recapture prints damaged in any way.

Betterphoto Workshop

Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.

Customer Reviews

Great information for beginners and speaker were enthusiastic. The workshop was full of laughter, however please think twice to sign up with them for any photography session. It's really costly.
Cheryl C. · February 20, 2013
It was a very informative and interesting workshop. Not geared for point and shoot cameras even though their ad stated for all users. But I did enjoy it.
Susan A. · November 14, 2012
