Portraits done a little differently - Portrait Photography

In the last post I was talking about lifestyle photography. Today I wanted to talk about portrait photography.  I know that some look at portraits in a very traditional way.  I, on the other hand, have a bit of a different view.  I guess you can call them more candid, or lifestyle... I find that a traditional portraits can be really beautiful, I like to add a little extra emotion or story.  Some may not call these portraits at all.  I like to engage the subject in a conversation, and during our dialogue take the photographs.  We usually joke around, which allows for the genuine smiles to appear.  I also like to include elements from the environment, which then really becomes an environmental portrait.  All these names, in reality do make a difference.  Here are some examples of what I mean.  Enjoy!
