‘Tis the season for getting family photos taken, Christmas cards, holiday shopping, and gift giving! We decided to combine almost all of that into one special family photoshoot experience recently! Mr. Mom Endeavors and I met as freshman at the University of Nebraska. So, while we were back for Thanksgiving, we found a photographer to do a family photoshoot with us on the University campus. With Groupon , finding an affordable photographer in a different city was easy!
Groupon is a great solution for finding great experiences and things to do. It can be hard finding the perfect gifts for all of our friends and family (and each other). So, this experience was a fun way to gift something special to ourselves. Plus, with a photoshoot, we then have a great gift (in the form of photo gifts) to share with family members! It’s a win-win! And, the whole Groupon experience was so easy!
Before we went on the trip, I searched for photography experience deals in Lincoln, Nebraska on Groupon. I found a great deal for Christina Masters Photography (a Nebraska alum herself) and she was able to fit us in after the football game! Since we met on campus, we thought doing a photoshoot there would be extra special! We met her on campus; then spent time walking around and taking pictures! The boys were NOT overly cooperative with smiling and looking at the camera! We’d never worked with a photographer like this before, so that was a new experience all on its own (normally I’m the one doing everything). But, we still managed to get a few fairly nice shots! I think my favorite is the first one in the post because I love that we’re standing on campus in our Nebraska gear! So fun! But, the shot below is pretty cute too! Their faces crack me up and really show off their individual personalities!
I love that she took a couple shots of just the two of us too! Being on campus is so nostalgic for us, so I really love this photo at the columns with the stadium in the background! I desperately wanted this photo to turn out as I LOVE this walk on campus and the Fall trees in the background. Sadly though, the boys just were NOT cooperating. But, I still think this photo is great as is SO perfectly captures the stage we are at in life and how difficult it is to get three little boys to smile & look at the camera. Hilarious! So, if you’re looking for a more unique gift idea, I highly recommend gifting an experience like this! There are A LOT of family photoshoot offers for $100 or less on Groupon! I know many families who would love to receive a photoshoot experience as a gift this holiday season! So, this would be a great family gift idea to consider! You can even make it a cute wrapped gift by printing off the Groupon voucher and placing it inside a nice frame with a little holiday message! The frame can then be used on one of the prints from the photoshoot. A meaningful and unique gift idea! And, Groupon’s got more than just great gift ideas this season – they’ve also got special giveaways and discounts, so make sure to stop by!
