Outside the norm....

If you follow me and watch my photography, you know that typically, its all about the babies. You will often find me capturing family connection, milestone photos, senior portraits and most of all, newborns. Recently though, I was asked to capture some soccer photos of our local kids. As a mom of some active boys, who love sports, I thought sure, I'll give it a run. I honestly had never watched soccer before and to be honest, I was in for a big surprise.

Unlike baseball, softball, basketball and football that i have shot, a soccer ball bounces around and changes direction and height at any given moment. Maybe because I am a novice when it comes to soccer but predicting where that ball is going...is a whole new challenge all of its own.

From a portrait photographers perspective, soccer is one challenging sport to capture, yet a challenge I wouldn't turn down. After all, "Challenges are what makes life interesting, and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful" ~unknown
