What You'll Get
Quality photos leave the subjects looking their best, unlike mouth-staining popsicles and confrontational Christmas-shopping tussles. Capture flattering moments with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a two-hour on-location photo shoot ($250 value) and $100 worth of prints and digital images of your favorite snapshots from Ryaphotos (a $350 total value).
Florida native Rya Boyce's Polaroid prowess stems from a photojournalistic approach to scene-snapping that conveys the distinct personality of people and places'. Specializing in candid camerawork, this lens wielder can capture a plethora of portraits, featuring up to four clients organically interacting. Aspiring models can select a site to accentuate their best characteristics, such as their fondness of sunsets, their playground playfulness, or their love of snorkeling in public fountains, and Rya will click to her camera's content for two hours. Then choose favorite film-fillers and upload them ($65 per digital image), order prints ($50 for an 8"x10", $30 for a 5"x7" or smaller), or clear a space in an underground stink-bomb shelter for a wall portrait ($75 for a 13"x19", $100 for a 16"x20"). In five days, subjects can happily gaze upon all of their glossy-papered glory.

Skilled shutterbug Rya aspires to join the lofty ranks of photosmiths such as Jade Albert and Annie Leibovitz through the natural light and natural smiles captured in her artistic portraiture. Her relaxed approach to shoots has landed her work in Home Magazine, and her winsome way with children—a demographic that usually responds to cameras by screaming until their lenses shatter—has yielded commercial images for youth surfwear and dental services. No matter her subject, Rya captures candid poses, drawing out family dynamics and catching the hopefulness of graduating seniors. After shoots, she retouches images and creates online galleries that clients can browse to order enough prints to wallpaper a dining room.
