nothing special, it usually requires an assistant holding a reflector. (or a reflector strategically placed on a stand which is even more difficult and cumbersome to pull off)
In the image of Monique, I placed her with the sun to her back and a bit to camera right. An assistant was standing camera left with a fairly large gold reflector bouncing sunlight fill back at her. That gave her a bit more exposure and the gold warmed her and set her apart from the BG which has a lot of blues and whites in it: That's Part One of popping her out. Part Two is the backlit highlights provided by the main source, i.e., the sun. The two combined together provide the "pop."

Great explaination. So, when you reflect light back at her with a gold reflector, how do you keep her from squinting in the too bright light? Could it be the 5-in-1 reflector I have is too shiny and I need something else or is there a technique I am missing? When I tried a test shot today with my wife, the light being reflected was too bright for her and if I moved the reflector off to the side, it did not light her evenly.
