whenever i meet with the stender family, i know i have to bring my "a" game. these kids are high energy and if i'm not ready for it, all my photos would be blurry streaks of color running across the photo. the trick is to embrace the energy. have them race each other. tell them to jump really high or do cartwheels. when they are resting, say "stand there and smile quick!" then tell them to go run another lap. after the shoot, i go home, take a nap and wonder how parents around the world keep up with their children 24/7. god bless you all.
enough with the smiles and posing. this is the real stuff.
