Out of the Park - Baseball Themed Family Portrait Session
"Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game." - Babe Ruth
I am just so excited about this photo session. It helps that they are of some of my favorite people.
I've talked about Beth before in my blog, but for those of you who don't know, she's one of my oldest and dearest friends. We met way back in 1995 during our very first week of college and have been friends since. I've been photographing these boys since birth (though admittedly pretty poorly at first). Beth has always been there for me when I really needed someone, and particularly early this summer when our family was having a rough time, so I really, really wanted these photos to be special for her.
Baseball is to her family like hockey is to mine, so she had the idea to have the session at ballpark and I thought that was an absolutely perfect idea. I'm not a fan of props, but I love incorporating things, places, or activities that mean something to the family in photographs. I also love any kind of activity that kids can do to feel like they aren't at a photo session...or really the whole family can do that becomes a lovely memory that I happened to photograph, rather than some big chore of a photo shoot.
And this was absolutely perfect. The boys did a fantastic job. I love how adorable Lincoln is in these, and Cole looks like a serious badass. And the whole family had a great time playing and having fun in a place that is like their second home. This is what speaks to me as a photographer, and I hope it comes through in the photos.
