I was wondering that too.

One possibility is that the sun is to camera left and is hitting some wall, camper or ground and reflecting up to her face and the open sky behind is producing the hair light.

Of it could be that he forgot he used a reflector or that he thinks a reflector is natural light since it is not flash.

My favorite light is available light, whatever light is available to me out of my truck!

At first glance one would assume that the sun is lighting her from behind...all that nice light on her hair. But one can clearly see a sharp edged shadow on her neck and on her left arm.
What caused these shadows if it was not reflected light?
Flash?

Same with this photo;


There are shadows here that could not possibly be caused by the sun....as the sun is clearly behind her and at a different angle.

I think you are pulling our legs. The light may be "natural" but it is very clear that a second source is being used....either flash or reflected light.
Man you guys are Great ! I did not think about it at the time but it was next to a white building and when the clouds broke i got this wonderful light !the backlight reflected off of the building casting that shadow! Thanks for pointing this out to me!

I think the lighting is outstanding. Finding the light is a tough chore when venturing outdoors when you aren't accustome to it. Eyes are well lit in every image and I love the dof. Were you using any reflectors to hit the eyes? Excellent job.

When I say WOW, I really mean WOW. Excellent Composition and excellent use of the natural lighting. Well Done.
