Natural Light Portraits

Window light can bring younger look and more relaxed personal style.

Casual portrait with more relaxed expression is a great addition to a traditional corporate headshot or a professional headshot, especially when you have a wider audience. More personal and engaging expression is less about power and more about authenticity, appropriate for relationship based businesses, personal branding, nonprofit boards, or technology startups.

Natural light tends to create softer lighting effects, a younger look, and less of a professional “studio look.” (Translation: less wrinkles, brighter skin tone.) This may reduce the need for retouching option, although it remains a potentially very useful option. However, a small caveat is that the effects vary depending on the weather and time of day, so please be sure to request natural light portrait during telephone consultation.

This options is also good for people who don’t like popping flash lights or a big camera.

Natural light option can be used as a part of corporate headshots, actor headshots dating profile portraits or publicity headshots at no extra cost (it is simply counted as an additional look). Please request this option at the time of filling out the “headshot inquiry form” or online dating profile inquiry form.
