Emily - Environmental Portraits - 3/13/11

I've recently been looking to do more portrait work. My favorite type of portraiture is what photographers call environmental portraits, or images of people in surroundings that highlight the subjects personality or lifestyle.

Additionally, I've been struggling with the idea of body-image in today's media. It's very obvious that most of us men will never meet, date or marry a model from Victoria's Secret even though that image seems to be the basis for our idea of the perfect woman. But does that mean that the women we meet in the coffee shop or at the gym are any less perfect or attractive? No. And so this next project is all about the girl next door, and how beautiful she is, even though she doesn't grace the pages of a magazine.

Enter Emily.
