Natural portraits by an East London photographer
You don’t have to go far to take cracking outdoor portraits – you local park or own backyard makes the perfect location for a natural portrait session.
Getting set up
Planning and attention to details are the key to a successful outdoor portrait shoot in London. Use your welcome pack to help prepare for your session, so you feel confident about what to pack for the day, what happens during the session and how to order your prints. ASK TO SEE YOUR WELCOME GUIDE
Find a neutral area to avoid distractions and put the focus on where it belongs – your happy, relaxed profile. Your photographer will know all the little nooks and crannies in London. Choose a favourite park or local venue that you like to visit often.
Colour and patterns
Spring is right around the corner – wear something colourful to give warmth and interest. If you’ve chosen a park or urban background, keep to clothes in single colours to prevent your images being confused.
Lovely looking portraits
Consider your natural portrait session as a day out in the park. A time when you can spend some quality with friends or family. Playful, happy and relaxed expressions are key to a successful portrait. Having fun together will stop you feeling self-conscious, so to feel comfortable, treat it like a mini-holiday.
