Portraiture, Lifestyle Photography & Headshots in Austin

Portraiture photography is an area that can vary a lot in style depending on the type of portrait. As one of the top portrait & lifestyle photographers in Austin, Melissa prefers the type of photography that focuses on bringing out the unique personality of the client in an approachable way. This type of portraiture photography is great for websites, blogging, social media & personal use. 

 Who Uses Portraiture Photography?

Working with one of the top lifestyle or black & white portrait photographers can make a huge difference in the image and success of your professional website. This is especially true for the fashion bloggers for whom Melissa is their preferred and only Austin portrait photographer. Another area this makes a huge difference is the Austin acting community that use headshots as their first impression. When that is the only way to communicate with a potential employer, it’s crucial to give a great impression of your personality that stands out among other Austin headshots.

 What to Expect in your Portraiture Photography Session

 In Melissa’s experience as a top portrait & lifestyle photographer, she has found that 2 outfits usually works best for the shoot. The shoot whether its Austin headshots, black & white portrait photography or lifestyle portrait photography shouldn’t take longer than about 30 to 60 minutes to capture several great options. The setting should complement the personality, outfit and overall vibe the client is trying to reflect. If you need some suggestions for settings that will make your portraits pop, Melissa has a few tried and true local spots that always deliver. In her experience as a top lifestyle & portrait photographer, she has found props to distract from the individual and as a result typically doesn’t work with props in her portraits.
