Recently, a friend approached me about photographing his son’s soccer team because they had missed their allotted time for the league appointed session. Of course I agreed, I know all too well the standard photography sessions are offered at weird hours and are not always in what seems like an obvious location. We did the standard individual and team pose, but I was also asked to stick around to take some action shots.
While I was editing and preparing the pictures to share with the families, I found myself continuously smiling. I was reminded that photographing people – their reactions, relationships, expressions, their lives – in these candid moments is what drives my love of photography. It lifts my spirits and drives me to want to produce more in the photography field.
Here is a quick peek at this session that reflected back to me in a tangible way my passion and love.
