What You'll Get
Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Today's Groupon presents a less complicated option: for $49, you get three hourlong photography sessions, 15 images on CD from your first shoot, 25% off print orders and a free 8” x 10” touched-up print with any order from Val Westover Photography (up to a $420 value).
Val Westover’s friendly, professional photographers will kindly stay put in their studio or travel to your home or a recycling plant that you're fond of for three separate rounds of photo-shooting sessions. Use the photo time to scratch a variety of photo-itches, including commemorating an engagement with happy-couple photos in the park, or prepping for an audition for a documentary about Thomas Jefferson with in-studio professional headshots. While this package includes three separate one-hour sessions, the CD of 15 images will come from the first session only. Print packages are not included in the price of the Groupon, but are available for purchase from Val Westover for 25% off the retail price. If you do order a print package, you get a free 8” x 10” touched-up print in addition to your order (a $95 value) and the rest of your images (from 75–120 per shoot).
This package is your opportunity to upgrade the framed family photos that have been hanging in your parents’ home for the past 600 years. Now that you aren’t riddled with acne or plagued with a six-year-old’s gummy smile, split the cost with your sibs and surprise your folks with a more up-to-date snapshot of their offspring. Call ahead to schedule your first photo session.

About Capturing True Emotion
Val Westover and Stephanie Adriana, both authors and photographers, draw from diverse artistic backgrounds. Val once trained hundreds of photographers as the manager of a nationwide portrait studio, and Stephanie has seen her work featured in an array of photography and fashion magazines. Applying fine-tuned artistic styles, they snap candid photojournalistic compositions and posed portraits of new couples, newborns, mothers-to-be, families, and secret families.
They also pass on their skills through step-by-step workshops, during which they use a blend of professional tips and practice exercises to teach the basics of ISO, shutter, and aperture alongside applied artistic principles. They then give protégés free rein to practice what they’ve learned in hands-on, on-location photo safaris, during which students capture shots of wildlife and people.
