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!
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!
