This guy. So fun. I loved hanging out with Alex for the day, and his helpful assistants were equally delightful. When a kid brings a prop like this to the session, it’s going to be a hit. He was way too cool for school …
Truly one of my very favorite things to photograph: sports. Catching action shots is great, but it’s these posed team keepsakes that I treasure the most. I just can’t bring myself to line them up in two parallel rows and smile for the camera. I have to mix it up, go for the grit, give it some texture, show a little emotion. So excited that baseball season is beginning!
Team photos are oh-so-fun for me! I love when a coach calls and says, “Hey, I like what I’ve seen you do. I don’t want the same old photo of kids in two boring rows; our team wants something edgy and new. I think you’re the person for the job.” YES! That’s exactly what the coach of the 2013 GHLL American League All Stars said, and it was such a fun session. Coach even called in some favors and surprised the boys with an extra-special photo location: Cheney Stadium! Thanks, Coach Reed. It was way cool!
Many of you know, I really like taking baseball photos. I like the springtime all-American feel that Little League imparts. Capturing small moments in a game just makes me happy. Whether it’s a dusty slide into second, a 9-year-old pitcher’s hand on the stitching, a batter grabbing sunflower seeds from his back pocket, or a team celebrating together; I love photographing all of it!
This was one of the coolest sessions ever! Her poise and beauty combined with willingness and talent helped us achieve just the look we were going for. This lovely young lady devotes much of her time to dance, and it was fitting that she would want to capture that in these images. Casual, beautiful, unique . . .
These girls mean business. They had an outstanding fall soccer season, and took home the PSPL U11 Classic 1 Division Championship! Spending a little time with them as we created their team photos was a hoot. They’re as sweet and pretty as they are determined and opinionated. They knew just how they wanted to stand, and they’d let me know if I had anything “off” in my posing of the group image. The end result is as much (or more) their own creation as it is mine. And, I like it that way. Way to go, Lightning!
Spending the afternoon with this very-cool gal was a treat! She is a golfer, currently attending Bellarmine Prep. We spent our time together on the Canterwood golf course, and had fun traveling the paths together. This beautiful young lady has a poise and sweet elegance about her that I could feel in her smile as I photographed her, and again as I edited her images. She reminds me so very much of her mommy. All my best to you, Miss A, as you look to the future and follow your dreams. Go, Lions!
