Environmental portraits — where the subject is involved in an activity or an environment they love — are some of my favorite photographs to create. Almost everyone is more relaxed when they’re doing something they enjoy in a place they like to spend time!
For Mx. O’s session, we chose a topic together: gardening. I prepared everything for the session ahead of time, making sure there would be plenty of ways to interact with the environment. When we met, I gave them general positioning and activity advice and then just let them be themselves for a relaxed and fun set of images.
A selection of images from this session are available as stock photos as well.
