About Erica J Mitchell’s Natural Light Photography Style

Erica photographs in a natural light studio or on location using available light to create a soft environmental look for each of her clients.

Classic photographic techniques that utilize the sun are used onsite to enhance the light quality.

When and Where to Shoot

For natural light indoor studio sessions*, morning and early afternoon to an hour before sunset works best. Same rule apples for indoor on location sessions.

For outdoor sessions the best time to photograph is in the late afternoon when the sun is low in the sky, early mornings are an option also. With the time of year in mind, the best shooting time is 1-2 hours before sunset, depending on the length of your session. If large window light is available on location early booking times are possible.

*Please note: The Natural Light Studio is available for headshot sessions at an additional $60 minimum an hour at cost fee.
