A family session with four at five and under can pose a challenge on paper no doubt, and Ally loves a challenge! Of course we do a lot of planning and take plenty of time to make sure we get the photos we need, and when the kids are well behaved and cooperative that certainly helps. There is a fine line however – “well-behaved” at a young age can mean “not allowed to be kids and have fun” if you’re not careful, and we do want to capture their personalities. This particular crew struck the perfect balance – they had plenty of fun, but they also listened and stood where we needed when we needed and we were able to get great results!
Such a fun family! We would be remiss if we did not mention that we have met Rabbi Yarden before since our daughter has volunteered at Friendship Circle for some time now – an outstanding organization that is doing phenomenal things around the globe. If you are not familiar with Friendship Circle I encourage you to take a look at the important work they are doing for people with special needs. He and his wife Bayla are both on staff there so it was nice to have them and their family here. This vine should give you a little behind the scenes flavor of how this session went…
Great fun as this family shot comes together!
We stayed with the simple pure white background and we love the outfits these adorable kids were wearing. Each one got their own turn in the spotlight for this next series of portraits from youngest to oldest:
A great group as you can see! We enjoyed our time with them and we hope you enjoyed the photos!
