Little League Session: Abram

My friend Rebecca had a brilliant idea a couple of years ago when she asked me to take both posed and candid photos at one of each of her son’s little league games!  This year she asked me to do it again, and together I think we’ve come up with a fun new type of session that I’m really excited about!  It blends game action shots with posed portraits to create a documentary style session that records this exciting time of growth!

Last night was Abram’s session and the weather was simply gorgeous.  I love all of his faces so much! 

I love the idea of capturing a child’s love of a sports, beyond just adding a few props to a portrait session or snapping a few candids at a game.  By capturing images during practice, active play, bench time, and a few poses after the game, I got genuine expressions and cool candid moments that document this time in Abram’s life!

This kid has always had the best smile, so he makes my job easy!  He’s growing up so fast – the last time I photographed him, he was playing t-ball!  And now he’s a grown up 7-year old!

Golden hour happened as Abram was putting on his catcher gear, which put him in the perfect spot at the perfect time!

And to top it off, Abram’s team won on home soil.  Huzzah!  Happy Birthday, Abram!
