Recently, I had a fun shoot with an extended family – about 10 people altogether. These two terrific kids were part of that family. By the way, be sure to click on each image to see it LARGER and clearer on your screen – whether it’s a computer, a tablet or a phone.

Kids can be a challenge to photograph – sometimes you have to shoot quickly, or they’ll lose interest and it’s awfully tough to get good pictures. (These two were very patient, however!) But what I find makes shooting kids easy is  that they are not nearly as self-conscious as adults. When I asked this girl to get close with her brother and put her hand on his shoulder there was no hesitation – she just did it.

They hung in with me when I suggested different poses or made some feeble joke to get a natural smile.  These were fabulous kids to shoot for so many reasons.

I made both color and black & white versions of the pictures for the  family. They chose only black and white versions for their prints, which certainly provides a classic, timeless quality. I’m drawn a bit more to the color versions of these particular photographs, but faithful readers know me to be a color guy through and through. Below you’ll see the black and white version of the first image. Which do you like best? I’d love to hear from you!

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.
