I’m so grateful to you for the feature and to this family for loaning me their moment.
This was a tricky edit. The light streaming through that window was really bright and fell into shadows quickly so it was really high contrast SOOC. Usually I crank contrast and add a little clarity. Here I had to decrease contrast, raise shadows THEN add blacks (and a little clarity) in order to balance light/shadows. A little dodging and burning here and there too! Their expressions were too tender to hide in the shadows!
