Deanna Greenstein

Deanna is a mom of five (yes, five) children, who lives in Brockton with her small circus of kids, her husband, their dog Penny, and a few cats. Her life is loud, energetic, mostly fun, often gross (did she mention four of those kids are boys?), and she wouldn't have it any other way. In between carting kids to school, baseball, gymnastics, guitar, dance, track and field and every other kid activity known to mankind, she works as a school bus driver for the city of Brockton, and is the Director of Religious Education at the Unity Church of North Easton, a Unitarian Universalist congregation. Deanna also holds degrees in Elementary Physical Education and Dance Education, which she plans to put back into use one day. At parties, Deanna can often be found hanging out with family pets. She follows her children around with a camera like the paparazzi, is pretty sure that 97% of her blood stream is made of coffee, and her laundry is never done. You can also find her blogging at

Get In The Picture, Mama!

The images Karyn captured that day are everything I had hoped they would be. In the photos, I don't see a mom who is uncomfortable in her frame. I don't see forced smiles or awkward poses. I see my family as we are. Goofy and playful, close-knit. Real. And I am right there in the middle of it all. In the picture. Right where I belong.
