Gorgeous evening for outdoor headshots
Whenever possible, when I’m shooting headshot or business portrait sessions, I try to tailor the session to the profession of the person I’m photographing. For someone in the financial sector, I bring out the portable studio backdrop for a more traditional look, but for an au pair coordinator, what to do? N wanted to be outdoors, and I suggested we head to a park in town that has some lovely natural backdrops as well as — wait for it — a playground. For someone who works in the childcare business, why not involve child’s play? Our session was in the evening, so we didn’t have to worry about getting in the way of kids who wanted to use the equipment as intended, and it was such a fun way to personalize the shoot!
