Guest Post :: Meet Laura ::

Happy February!

First, take a peak at the sidebar... see some new ads?
These are my rockin' sponsors for this month.
You're going to LOVE them, I promise!

Laura, from Our Reflection is here today!
Laura was my 200th Facebook "liker"... yep, I totally keep count of stuff like that!
I've gotten to know her over the past few weeks, and she's sort of amazing!

You probably know that I love photography... I dabble in it a little, and my best shots are usually a combo of pure luck AND editing...

Laura, on the other hand, is a photographer and totally knows what she's doing!
She's here today with some tips on traking portraits!
Take it away, Laura!

*******************************************************************

Hello! I’m Laura from Our Reflection. I’m super excited about being guest posting today for the lovely Lena at Mom2MemphisAndRuby.


A little about me. I’m a full-time working mom of two amazing daughters and an admirable, encouraging husband who are my life. I am, regrettably, a bit addicted to social media. I have a constant connection Facebook and Twitter wherever I am. I love Starbucks, the colors pink and yellow, mountain biking, and listening to the piano. My new addition seems to be blogging!

When I’m not working my 8-5 or being “mommy”, I’m a lifestyle photographer based out of Monterey, California. In my mind, I am ALWAYS thinking about photography. It never ends. My brain takes snapshots everywhere I go. My photographic passion is people. Couples, families, and children. Nothing brings me more joy than capturing those unforgettable moments that will be treasured for a lifetime. Check out my photography page by clicking here.

Today I wanted to share with you some of my fav's and helpful tips when taking portraits.

1) Time of day. Its all about lighting. The best pictures will be taken the 2 hours after sunrise and the 2-hours prior to sunset. This gives everyone that natural "glow."


2) Don't go crazy buying expensive equipment but do invest in a DSLR camera. They're not to expensive these days and worth every penny. {I'm a Canon girl myself.}



3) Keep your camera with you at all times. I'm one for spontaneous photos. The ones unplanned are always the best.


4) What should I wear in my portrait? I get asked this question all the time. The clothes a person wears has a big impact on the end result of the photo. They need to be comfortable. If they feel awkward in their outfit or environment, you won't capture them looking like themselves. 



5) Don't be afraid to experiment. If you're using a digital camera, the cost of errors are free. Go crazy - you might end up with one you really love.


I hoped this help you feel more comfortable with your camera. I love questions or comments so please feel free to drop me an email.
