Over the break my friend Dyonna asked me to take some headshots for her upcoming internship and I gladly obliged. I usually hate photographing people because they can be very temperamental but I love taking pictures of my friends because I know exactly what to say to get them flash a genuine smile. They’re also really easy to photograph because they are all so photogenic. Believe it or not all of these pictures were taken right in my front yard. The sunflowers were actually next to my neighbor’s mailbox so those were the hardest shots to take because I had to get her to position herself just right so that the mailbox and the house in the background were both out of frame. I love incorporating greenery and plants into my portraits because they can add a lot of visual interest to a background or they can be bokeh’d out to create a nice, single colored backdrop.
