Wrapped in golden light and loving arms! Photo by @leahgolter, who has great advice on how to communicate with your clients and capture their real emotions! "Communicate with your clients before the session starts. Before I take any photos, I always ask my clients—particularly the ladies—if there's a side of their body/face they prefer to have photographed (99% of the time, every woman does). She may not always be on that particular side, but it gives me something to look out for, because I know she will most likely keep/share the photos SHE feels beautiful in. I also share my shooting style and explain how I'll be directing them throughout the session. For example, when I ask my clients to pose a certain way, they don't have to pull away from each other after I click the shutter, but rather stay in the pose, and let the next movements flow naturally. When I notice things are getting a bit stiff, I find it helpful to give my clients descriptive words that evoke emotion, rather than telling them exactly how to pose. This is one of my favorite images. During their engagement session, I had Britton wrap his arms around Rachael and I asked them to look through me with softness and sincerity. This is what they gave me. Their expressions are their own. Instead of smiling at the camera, or looking away the entire time, I wanted to capture the more subtle expressions. I love how the golden light wraps around my clients and pulls them forward, and how film closely portrays the feeling of real life emotion." — Leah Golter
