I LOVE sports! I fell in love with basketball at the age of 12 when I first picked up a ball.  I remember my parents telling me that if I wanted to go to college, I would have to earn a scholarship because they couldn't afford to pay for it.  That lit a fire in me, and I enjoyed learning that the more work I put into the sport, the better I became. From that moment on, you would rarely see me without a basketball in my hand. I would get my homework done at school so that I would have more hours to practice after school. That dedication did eventually earn me a full ride scholarship and later an induction into the hall of fame. I have so many great memories from those years, but no physical images to show for it. 

My one regret?? I had not one really great picture of those memories. I lived and breathed basketball for 10 plus years. It was a part of my soul, and I have zero great images to show for it. It's just a story I tell my kids. I would love to have something tangible to show them. Look at what mommy used to do. 

Does your son or daughter (or you?) love sports? Do you want memorable,  creative, dramatically lit images that can be displayed on a beautiful metal print or canvas, or in an album as a keepsake for years to come? You have worked this hard and come this far, let's give you something to show for it. I would love to help make that happen for you. This last year we captured softball, baseball, tennis football, soccer, rodeo in a barn, car racing on a mountain top, and motorcycling in the Redwoods. Let's create something unique and memorable that will last a lifetime!  I feel my most comfortable on an athletic field, with a camera in my hand. If you want a Senior Sportrait Session for your son or daughter, (or yourself) contact me today. Let's make it happen!

Senior sessions are my favorites! I had the special privilege to shoot these awesome senior boys this 2017 school year. They attended schools as far south as South Fork High School, all the way to St. Bernard's Catholic School, with a few Fortuna High and Ferndale guys sprinkled in. A few of them made the trek to Tooby Park, Garberville Community Park, and the Benbow Inn down in my neck of the woods, while others were shot on their own properties that were special to them. I was also blessed to shoot in Old Town,Eureka at the Bear River Casino, and Husky Football Field. We got to play with guns, race cards, ride motorcycles, and had lots of laughs. I am truly blessed that they gave me the opportunity to capture these special moments for them. I love seeing what they are passionate about and capturing their love for it. There were a few all star athletes who excelled on the playing field,  as well as some award and scholarship winners. What a crew! Good luck 2017 Senior Boys! I wish you the best of luck!
