CLIENT SHOOTS: Summer Softball!!

I'm so excited to finally blog about my summer softball adventures. :)

I was chosen to photograph the individual and team pictures for the Tottenham Minor Softball League this past summer. It was my first time doing this and was a lot of fun. I learned A LOT as well, and will hopefully get to put those learnings into practice next year if I'm selected to do the photographs again.

I want to give a big thanks to Ginette Stone for her assistance on the main photo days. Things wouldn't have run as smoothly without her. And, of course, thanks to Paul who came out to help when he could as well. :)

I was a bit worried what the parents would think, as I did something that was different than what they were used to receiving. Here is Ben, with his team. This is the layout I did, as an 8x10 for each player who had his/her photo taken. Most of the feedback I received was positive, so that's good. :)

Thank you to all of the parents for allowing me to post these photos of their children who were on my team. It was such an AWESOME bunch of kids!! There were a couple missing from our main team photo, so we did one more. This collage below shows all of the kids on our team as well as the two team photos we did.

Thanks to our team sponsor AJ Your DJ who came out to some of our games and brought jumbo freezies!

You might be wondering what I'm doing in the team photo! Shortly after Ben's softball season started, his coach had to step down due to scheduling conflicts with his work. Somehow, I ended up volunteering to be the Coach. I was sooooo glad that Bonnie was the Assistant Coach and that Gina agreed to be the Pitcher for the team.

It was a lot of fun watching each kid improve throughout the season. I even saw one literally grow over an inch too!! haha :) I think they had fun as well.

Being the coach had one downside though. I wasn't being able to take pictures of Ben at practices and games or at his season ending awards ceremony. I missed capturing those pictures of him with his new baseball friends, giving his coaches a hard time, horsing around on the field and, of course, making those awesome hits and plays in the field. ;) And Ben and I would usually make cards/collages for his coaches out of the pictures I took of them with the kids throughout the season to thank them at the end of it all. That didn't quite work out this time. haha :)

Paul took some pictures for me during the awards. This is just after I gave Ben his trophy.

This is me with Bonnie, the Assistant Coach.

And this one was taken by Ben. Don't you just love all the dirt?! hehe I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this picture. Good job Ben!

Thanks to the AJ Your DJ players for an awesome season, to their parents for all of their help and support throughout the season and to Tottenham Minor Softball for the opportunity to photograph the kids this past season.

Thanks for looking!
