To avoid the flashy look in portraits, keep the strobe in the same direction as the sun for a natural look. The placement of the light and sun will give the impression the sun is illuminating the face. To recreate the natural look, place the sun behind the subject 45 degrees as a rim light and keep your strobe in the same direction in front 45 degrees. This light setup is my preferred way of shooting when possible.
