This Orange County business consultant came to our studio looking for a casual, outdoor background that would make her eye catching royal blue outfit really pop in her professional headshot. Luckily, we have a garden that was the ideal setting, with the perfect available light to flatter her skin tone. We also used translucent panels and reflectors to enhance the early afternoon light and give this image its added dimension. When a business professional isn't part of a team per se, an outdoor backdrop is fun to play with because there needn't be a uniformity of pictures across a group of people. Instead, our client had the freedom to bring to life what she imagined for her portrait session, and the results are really beautiful, with an almost watercolor natural palette of blurred out greenery that never distracts from her engaged expression and warm demeanor.
