Helmet in hand, a broad grin on her face.

Outdoor Personal Portraits: What to Wear

Holly brought a stunning array of beautiful hand-selected pieces designed to complement her laid-back, understated elegance. With poise, Holly makes jeans and a T-shirt look stylish.

Jeans, Dr. Martins, and ripped Ts – the perfect siren against the weather-beaten ruins in Ryde, for an outdoor portrait session.

Its clear Holly is a happy person, no matter that’d we’d only just met half an hour ago, the laugher and smiles in these photos are genuine.

Holly is vibrant and fun. Getting along easily, we chatted infectiously walking along the pathways, nattering about college, mopeds, and spiders lurking in dark corners.

Holly has devoted most of her life to dancing, training, and excelling in all that she does. Holly’s dedication and hard work ensure were sure to be delighted with her performances.

When you meet Holly you can expect fun, honest feedback, and a surprisingly adventurous outlook. Except when meeting a spider, and I did seem to use all the dusty nooks and crannies for Holly to sit in.

Capturing a moment in time: the importance of booking an outdoor personal portrait

During the session, I explained to Holly that when most people think of personal portraits, they think of stuffy old photographs in which everyone is wearing matchy-matchy and looking very serious. But personal portraits don’t have to be boring!

As you can see with Holly’s photographs, outdoor personal portraits can be a fun and creative way to capture your personality and memories.

Here are three reasons why you should consider booking an outdoor personal portrait session:

  1. Natural light is always best for photos. Outdoor personal portraits take advantage of beautiful natural light, which will make you look your best.
  2. You can be more relaxed in a natural setting. When you’re outdoors, you can move around and feel more comfortable than you would in a studio setting. This will come through in your photos!
  3. Outdoor locations offer endless possibilities for interesting backgrounds and compositions.
