What Makes A Great Portrait

Sometimes just a simple patch of grass with a few vibrant flowers is all that is needed for location. We don't always look for the fanciest location, but we do look for great light.

Another element at work here is the lighting. It is beautifully flattering and soft. 

Along with great styling, hair and makeup, putting Anna into this simple pose brought out her personality. She looks dreamy and serene.

Her attention on the daffodil adds to the feeling that she doesn't have a care in the world. I like that you don't feel like she is aware there is a camera near her. You can tell she is totally relaxed with the photo session and feels free to be herself.

Location: Montgomery, NY.

Keywords: Anna (6), Annmarie (3), arboretum (4), engagement (95), Javier (6).
