DeChenne family

Family photos used to scare me to death.

Wiggly kiddos, uncertainty about how to get them to look at the camera, managing a group of people, the list goes on.

But then, I changed my mind. I started to think, “What if we just let kids be wiggly and crazy?” I mean, they’re rarely ever standing still 99 percent of the time anyway, so why even bother trying to capture a still photo?

So, the wild and fun family photo sessions were born.

Yes, this means there might be a little blur (despite me cranking up shutter speed). But that’s life — it goes by in a blur anyway, and perhaps especially so when you have kids!

I’m glad I brought my laid back, let’s-let-everyone-be-wild attitude because little Clara looked like she was about to bolt in every single picture. I was laughing so hard during shooting and editing. Like, a thousand laughing-crying emojis.

DeChenne family, you’re so cute, and such a hoot! Let’s do this again sometime.

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!
