Location Portraiture – Leah

Location Portraiture with Leah Taillefer

Location Portraiture with natural light is one of my favorite ways to photograph people.  Nothing is more fun than a day with a beautiful subject and not having to worry too much about balancing a bunch of lights.

A meeting on location with the goal of making some beautiful images was the goal this day! Sharon and I spent a couple of hours at Point Pelee National Park with our model.  That model, fellow photographer and model Leah Taillefer. The plan was to do some natural light portraits on location and since I knew we would do the boardwalk, I planned to shoot with natural light.

It was a nice summer afternoon around 6pm, when we began with a trip around the Marsh Boardwalk. We used some of the boardwalk’s features to provide added interest. Stops at points such as this cool pergola, a raised boardwalk section with multi-level railings and the marsh boardwalk viewing tower.  All of these elements were amazing background elements for the boardwalk portion of the shoot.

Shortly before sunset, we left the boardwalk and visited one of the beaches on the west side of the park. I planned ahead of time to shoot some sunset portraiture, so I brought one of my Alien Bees (model B800) and the standard 22″ white beauty dish to shoot the final series of photos, which culminated in my favorite, a beautiful sunset image of Leah in a pretty, blue sundress.

Below is a selection of favorites from our time together with Leah at Point Pelee National Park. If you are looking for something similar or know of a friend or family that would like natural light location portraiture, feel free to contact us to set up your photo shoot!
