While the photograph below was taken in Easter, the timeless framing by the tree branches in a local park suggests a fresh, almost summery feel.

tips for creating happy portraits
Tip #1 – Get excited
Feeling stylish is a great boost. Getting ready for a portrait session is little like a summer wedding. Like a special occasion that warrants a new outfit, hair cut and makeup. The excitement of preparing the perfect outfit, the confidence in knowing good times are ahead.
Tip # 2 – Ask for a free consultation
Considering the location and composition of your portrait is critical in creating stylish portraits. Ask your photographer for a free consultation ahead of your session – this is an opportunity to understand how your experience will work and how you’ll look your best.
Tip # 3 – Trust your photographer
During your initial meeting, you’ll be able to get a sense of your photographer, ask questions about how they work and start to build a strong relationship with them. Having trust in your photographer will cultivate a positive relationship with them, leading to expressive portraits full of smiles and happiness.
