When I look at these family photos I see oodles of personality, spontaneity, vibrance, and intimacy. I love that mom and dad are right in there being crazy and silly with their kids! Being un-guarded and willing to take a step back and laugh at yourself, besides being building blocks for great family photos, are also great life lessons for your kids. I will be the first to raise my hand and say sometimes, probably too often, I take things waaaaay to seriously. Then something happens and I get a reality check and decide to chill out and have fun (even at my own expense). Its so great for my kids to see that! So here’s to living in the moment, making memories with your kids, letting your guard down, and laughing with those you love (including yourself).
