Studio portraiture has no doubt its own advantages, but most of the people can't act naturaly, when they come to the studio. You know how it feels - you put a happy smile on your face and try to look your best, but on the inside you feel like you are in the dentist's chair. And usually it shows. That's the reason I prefer taking pictures in the natural environment with your friends or family near by, so you feel happy and relaxed. Maybe you won't have the biggest smile, but it will be you!
