One of my favourite portraits of the year: This fun shot of model Carla Calabia.

She just looks so cheeky! The photo set a turning point in my comfort level with sitters: I asked them to pull faces, stick out their tongues or told them one of my bad dad-jokes. I got so much more out of my portrait sessions. My sitters feel at ease, and I get better photos. Simple!

Do you have a trick (or a bad dad-joke) to get your sitters at ease?

Best wishes until next time!
