When I started pursuing photography as a hobby, I used to ask my cousins and friends to pose for photos. Despite my passion and enthusiasm for our photoshoots, I would frequently find myself repeating the same poses over and over!
Portrait photography has come a long way in the past few decades. Many of us have formal, posed family portraits in our family photo albums. I remember how diligently my mother booked our family sessions at a photography studio in our neighborhood every year the way her mother used to do.
