Portrait session with a future MVP

I had a photo shoot yesterday with a Dad who was looking for a little bit more than he was getting from his Little League photographer. I do Little League pictures as well but when you are shooting hundreds of kids in one day it's pretty much an assembly line process with everyone getting the same pose, etc. With a custom session you get so much more time with the player and of course the pictures are retouched individually. This is a good example of an area that parents don't always think about when it comes to pictures.

If your child is into sports or cheerleading, at some point during their childhood try to have them shot by a pro. Some parents will spring for professional senior portraits but I think it pays to do it a little more often. Imagine having a pro photograph your little baseball player every year and then, when they graduate high school, presenting them with a flush-mount, custom designed photo book that documents their life in sports. That's a gift they'll keep forever and pass down to their kids!
