Before modern photography, portrait-seeking subjects would cover themselves in year-end financial figures to meet the requirements for being xeroxed. Capture more accurate self-copies with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a portrait package at Très Jolie Portraiture (a $335 total value). This Groupon is valid for an in-studio shoot with weather-permitting access to outdoor shots at nearby Hardberger Park. The package includes:
- A 60-minute in-studio portrait session with backdrops and props (a $250 value).
- One 11”x14” mounted wall portrait (an $85 value).
Experienced and passionate shutterbug Laura Ashley invites clients to her studio for 60-minute portrait sessions, seeking to capture candid snapshots of up to five subjects. Upon scheduling their shoot, customers consult Laura on their indoor or outdoor setting, clothing suggestions, and how to best prep whippersnappers for a fruitful posing spree. Laura can artfully aim her lens amid vibrant backdrops and a nearby park as well as elegant studio rooms and closely orbiting meteors. During their session, photographees relax as the camera freezes their genuine gestures, eschewing stiff tableaus for authentic, lively interactions. Customizing each appointment based on the subjects’ requests, Laura gladly clicks fun frames of children enjoying their favorite hobby and can also document prebaby bellies for expectant mothers in color or black-and-white. Families can augment their portraits with additional members or beloved sports-team mascots for an added $25 per person.
Postshoot, Laura digitally retouches images and displays them in an online proof gallery. Patrons receive an 11”x14” mounted wall portrait of their favorite still, which makes a thoughtful holiday gift for grandparents or the mad scientists from whom they were cloned.
