Portrait Inspiration | www.alicia-carvalho.com/blog

I’m so excited! I now have a board on my pinterest that is for portraits only, the small joy’s in life. Over the holidays I started looking for a bunch of portrait inspiration, as I realized I should really get an updated photo of myself.

Above is a compilation of some of the portraits I’ve come across recently, mostly part of style columns or blogger/designer about pages. Each one of them has stood out to me because it looks ¬†effortless, easy and natural. Staged portraits are so a thing of the past, unless you happen to be in a kindergarden + high school photo sessions (barf). Below are some of my favourite more “artful” and “creative” portraits, the kind that play with light and shadow, colours, props, perspective and more.

I am heading out for a little¬†nature getaway with my BFF this weekend. Fingers crossed it doesn’t rain. I will definitely be bringing my camera and use these pictures as inspiration.

All of these photos are on my pinterest board portraits, feel free to follow along.

This is a really gorgeous collection of portraits! I agree, I think effortless and natural is definitely the best way to go… probably harder to achieve than I’d think though!

Thanks for stopping by Sally! I always find it to be really difficult being in front of the camera, kind of posing, yet trying to look effortless and natural at the same time.
