Hey all! These are from a shoot last summer.
What's your favorite way to get natural looking portraits?

They are cute!! My favorite way to get natural looking photos is to make people as comfortable in front of the camera as I can. I talk with them, crack jokes (even lame ones work if you don't really know any), ask them questions, and I snap pictures the whole time (usually not while they're talking). They get used to me and my massive camera being in their face. Plus it's fun to get a variety of different reactions to what people say.

I agree with Amanda - its all about developing a repertoire with your clients. If they feel comfortable with you, you're going to go home with some great shots. Conversation and jokes are a great way to break the ice.
