How about a different kind of headshot. Or would you really call this a head shot.
Shooting details: I put one of our 4×6 softboxed behind her and had the Mrs and her boyfriend hold two pieces of foamcore in front of her. They formed a triangle with me at the point. Bumped the blacks in Lightroom to make her skin tone and bra less washed out. Getting a sort of soft glamour I really like.
