The most basic photography pose is a portrait: a head-and-shoulders, close-up look at the model that capitalizes on their smile. It’s my most-requested image, something all mothers and grandmothers mention. And with good reason! The basic portrait is made for the fridge or a gallery of photos on the mantel. It showcases their child or grandchild and is something they can refer guests to.
Since portraits are so often requested, it’s my policy to capture at least two per session. Artistic shots are important, but not like traditional portraits.
