Soccer and Basketball and Cheer, Oh My!

I am primarily a family, wedding, and senior portrait photographer. However, I can’t put my camera down when I watch my kids playing sports!

I’m really lucky in that my kids love to do all kinds of activities – basketball, soccer, cheer, track & field, gymnastics – they stay active, and it keeps us busy!! But watching them is so exciting. I have to admit it, I love it!

I love the lessons my kids are learning by participating in sports. When they win, we celebrate and share in their happiness. But when they lose, we talk about what they are learning about competition and sportsmanship. Sometimes the lessons aren’t easy… but they are good ones to be learned, none the less.


Did you play sports as a kid? What is your fondest memory of your days playing on a team?
