Go Natural or Go Home
Today’s post is to give a little insight into my portrait sessions.Â My strategy is to make my lovely models and customers feel as natural and comfortable as possible.Â Sometimes to their surprise, I ask my models where they would like to have their photo shoot.Â I have found that the pictures seem much more special to the models when they get their pictures back and they know that they took those photos at a location that makes them happy and is special and unique to them.
I do not shoot my photos in a studio as a personal preference (I have seen beautiful photos done in studios!).Â I believe natural light is the best light, and I stick to that as much as possible.Â I also really enjoy the creativity that is encouraged when I’m given a new location.Â I have found you can make beautiful pictures just about anywhere.Â It’s all in what you do with it!Â 😉
And because every post is improved by a photo… Here are some little creatures in their own natural habitat, our backyard fig tree.
