Portrait Photo Shoot – Roya
So if you’re a portrait photographer, what is your job beyond the basic premise of creating a photo of a person? Is the photo simply supposed to be a documentation of what person looked like? Maybe. Are you supposed to make them look good? Maybe. Is their portrait supposed to help sell a product? Maybe. Oftentimes, for me, it’s a little bit of everything. I want to get an idea of what this person is really like, a glimpse into their personality while capturing the best parts of who they are.
For Roya, a sweet young woman from San Diego, my job was super easy. Not only is she beautiful but she’s quirky, geeky, personable and overall great person. And when you look at her photos, I hope her huge, confident personality jumps out of the photos, at you.
