How to Create Natural Light Beauty Portraits

I think part of making good portraits is constant motion. A lot of times, when we tell our clients to “stand over there,” or “do something over there,” you might not get the results you want, since our clients aren’t supermodels.

I like to walk them through specific motions, step by step. I’m looking for those moments where there’s motion; they’re touching their hair, moving their shirt, looking away, laughing, etc. This helps them loosen up in front of the camera and for beauty portraits, those poses make them look more natural and real vs. fake and awkward. 

As you can see in the video, I’m paying close attention to every detail of the pose before I take a single shot, getting Alissa’s hair, shirt, jewelry, etc. how I want it to look before we get started.
