Sports Portraits – A Summer Challenge Revisited

Kent Island Basketball

So you may recall, I set myself up with a Summer Challenge last year (back in the days when there was sun and warmth…). It was all about learning a new technique, trying some new software and practicing a new editing style. In the process the Sports Portrait was born! I was SO excited about the whole process that I convinced the powers that be for the Kent Island Football Team to allow me to photograph all of the seniors on the team and create these awesome portraits. We totally did it on the sly too – none of the players, coaches or parents knew exactly what we were up to. On senior night my cohort in deviousness and I hung all the senior players’ sports portraits by the entrance gate. They were a HUGE hit. I was like a little

Madeleine – 2014 Senior

Madeleine-10X20-STORYBOARDS

Sometimes you just fall in love with an image and know it the moment the shutter clicks. This session had magic to it from the moment we started. I was so, so excited to get home and edit – I knew I had something special. To make it even better – she’s my canoe partner’s granddaughter!   I put together a short video of the entire session – check it out!

The Hunters Ridge Four

HuntersRidge10X20-STORYBOARDS1

    A few weeks ago I was asked to photograph a group of four high school seniors. They had know each other almost their entire life, lived on the same street and spent numerous hours together getting into trouble. The moms wanted to honor the friendship and save the memories before they all scattered to the four winds. I have to say some child/parent dynamics never change and there was some donut bribery happening in the background if they all behaved! Last night the Fearsome Foursome from Hunters Ridge graduated from QACHS – Congrats to you all!!!

2013 Senior Models Video (Can You Say KI High Rocked It?!)

2013 Models-4

I have been horribly amiss! It’s only now that I realized that the AMAZING 2013 Senior Models video never made it onto the blog. How could that possibly have happened?? This past year I had ROCKIN 2013 Senior Models (all from Kent Island by the way – what’s up with that Queen Anne’s??). We zig zagged across Kent Island hitting all sorts of different locations for our sessions, from The Cross Island Trail to Kent Island Firehouse. Thank you Morgan, Judy, Sarah, Tabby and Matthew – I loved working with each one of you!! And now without further ado – The 2013 Lil Blu Dragonfly Senior Model Video!!

Taylor – 2012 Senior Model

Taylor - 2012 Senior Portrait

Sometimes right in the middle of a shoot you know you are getting something spectacular. Taylor totally brought it and more to her session. I knew before I even opened up my editing software that I had something special! I met Taylor at the Cracker Barrel on Kent Island days before the school year was to end. She has this bright, bubbly personality and a ton of energy! As with every senior I asked “What is it that make you, you?” She stopped to think about it for a moment, threw a few things out there and then she mentioned theater and the Church Hill Community Theater. Her whole face lit up and if it’s possible she got even more energized! That was it! That was where we had to do her session! I already had ideas for images running
