One way to get professional-quality self-portraits is to commit aggravated jaywalking and convince the mug-shot photographer to take a few extra. Today's Groupon saves you the trouble and expensive court fees. For $65, you get a one-hour snapping session (a $175 value) and a DVD with print-quality copies of all your images (a $350 value) from Melissa Glynn Photography (a $525 total value). This deal entitles you to all the photos you can pose for in one outfit at one location of your choice in the Austin area, but cannot be applied to wedding photography. You must call before June 30, 2010, to schedule your session, though you have until December 31 to redeem the deal.
While Glynn didn't invent the camera, that doesn't mean she won't invent it someday in a parallel universe wherein cameras have yet to be invented. Put her nurturing directorial skills and time-freezing talents to the test by having her coax natural smiles out of your newborn, soon-to-be mom, high-school senior, or entire family. You can also use your session to commemorate the joys of engagement, baby showers, or the promise of potential in a post-graduation smile. Glynn even offers boudoir sessions for the ladies who want their sexy preserved for all posterity.
After an hour of clicking and zooming, you'll be left with 50 to 100 edited photos ready for whatever destination you've deigned for them, whether website, business card, advertisement, or JumboTron. You'll also have access to a password-protected online proofing site for 90 days. Besides capturing your soul into an easily portable format, photographic portraiture is a terrific way to reveal your best side in a controlled scenario and ensure that you'll have at least one Facebook photo of yourself where you're not hoisting a red plastic cup. Call ahead to schedule your session.
