It’s always interesting as a photographer to work with people and situations you don’t know a great deal about. In the case of the Yablonsky family, a friend purchased a family session for them as a gift card several months ago when their littlest one was a newborn, and they elected to use their session as a family session last week highlighting each of their four very energetic children/. with Grandma along to help with herding the kids and get in a few photos herself! It felt a little bit like I’d been thrown into a whirlwind with three kids playing and enjoying the sunny day. Mom assured me that she likes action shots – and indeed, with collections of kids of this age, and indeed, most normal young kids, getting them to sit still for a proper family portrait is nigh on impossible and, in many cases, barely even worth trying. I felt like I did manage to catch some of the dynamic range of their lovely family in their images, and I hope that these photos help them to remember the joy of their newest arrival!
