Black and White Beach Portrait – Child Photography – Hunter Photographics, Red Deer, Alberta

child portrait on a beach

Portrait taken on location at Starvation Bay, Pender Island.

Beach portraits are a great way to capture carefree images of children.  Images like this, presented in black and white, are timeless. Informal posing makes for a natural portrait and lets the child’s personality show through, just the way a portrait should be.

Portrait in the Woods

outdoor portrait

Red Deer, Alberta has a wonderful park and path system running throughout the city. The wooded areas provide a lovely backdrop for casual portraits. This time of year presents backgrounds of lush greens making it a great time to capture the essence of summer in a photography session. A summertime portrait will be a welcome addition displayed in your home as winter approaches (remember how the snow arrived October 13th last year!).

Shooting on location is fun, and when you have the opportunity to shoot at a completely new location it makes for some really creative shooting with fresh looking images.

Early season gives the warmth and texture of brown grass which adds to the rugged and relaxed feel. Most people think of outside portraiture being green trees and manicured lawns, but I have to admit I like the honesty of shooting in naturally occurring surroundings.
