Looking Natural in Portraits, The Art of a Successful Photo Shoot

My favorite portraits are the ones where my clients look completely relaxed, connected and genuine. My goal during every photo shoot is to get to that perfect place where a person's true personality shines. Sometimes I achieve this by just simply asking my client to look off camera and think of a happy memory. Or I might ask them to turn their back to the camera and then twirl back to looking into the camera. The fun of both these approaches usually gets a real laugh and an uninhibited reaction. 

I just adore these portraits of Catrice, the owner of Sweetness and Delight Event Styling.
