So, what is portraiture photography? Portraiture photography is actual photography in which a portrait is taken, so that could mean you individually, you with your spouse or partner, or it could be you with your spouse, partner, your kids, or just a family portrait. So basically, in portrait photography you will be very posed. It's the job of the photographer to make you look as relaxed as possible while still posing you up to get that great portrait, so a lot of times a photographer will have you to turn your your body, turn your your chest away from the camera, turn your head toward the camera, shoulders back, and smile, and that's portraiture photography. A lot of times they'll take the different family members and pose them up in different ways to make a very dignified portrait, and make you look great for your portraiture photography.
