In the 18th century, a hand-painted portrait could take up to one year to complete—a fact that caused great frustration if the final product revealed that a passerby had given the subject bunny ears. Avoid time-consuming second attempts with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get an on-location portrait session for up to four people (a $75 value on weekdays, $115 on weekends) and a CD of images (a $75 value) from More Than Words Photography (up to a $190 total value).
Combining a photojournalistic style, natural light, and local savvy, husband and wife shutterbugs Rich and Jayna Brown weave pixels into eye-boggling portraits of families, kids, and couples. Groups of up to four cooperate to delight the camera with as many smiles and sneezes as possible during the 60- to 90-minute session, which is held at the location of your choice—a home, a park, a money factory, or anywhere else that just makes sense. Once your poses have been hoodwinked and frozen in a digital state, Rich and Jayna will post 15–20 final images in a private online gallery. A complete CD of images from the entire photo shoot, and the license to print is included in the deal, allowing you to order portraits for friends, family members, and billboards around town.
