If you have an aspiring athlete in your family and you want to capture a moment in time in their young career, I love to take sports shots that capture each child’s personality. This theme is truly personal for me as it grew out of my son’s love for all things sports. I started taking photographs of him when he first started playing hockey and then began doing so each year as a time capsule of his childhood love for sports. From there, I was asked to take photographs of his hockey team where I set up towards the side of the rink and hosted a mini-session during one of the team practices. I have a mobile set-up so can be booked to take photographs for an entire team and will also offer mini-sessions at select locations.
Action shots were inspired by my son. I started taking photographs at his hockey tournaments and games, and it quickly expanded to taking shots of the entire team and allowing parents to download whatever I was able to capture. If your kiddo has an upcoming game or tournament where you/the team would like to capture the action, I would be happy to attend with the goal of capturing a few awesome photographs of each player. Action shots can be paired with an aspiring athletes session where I can capture individual photos either before or after the game (or practice) as well with my mobile set-up.
SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY FAQ
How do I book aspiring athletes shots for my child or team?
If you would like to book aspiring athlete shots and/or action shots for your team, please contact me and we can discuss. It is helpful to set up sessions when you know teams are available (such as already scheduled practices or games).
Will you do both aspiring athletes shots and action shots together?
Yes, if you would like to schedule aspiring athlete headshots prior to a game or practice, I would be happy to take action shots following or vice versa.
Do you take team photos as well?
Yes, I would be happy to take a team photo during the scheduled session as well.
What is the cost, how many photographs are received and when do I receive them?
There are a few packages that I offer.
Many sports teams will ask for a group/team shot, as well as individual shots during a session. In those situations, I typically ask for a $50 non-refundable retainer from the team to schedule the session. All members of the team will then receive a group/team shot as part of the retainer. Beyond that, I will take individual shots of any players/players who would like them during the session. After the session, parents/players will receive a gallery of shots. They will have the option to choose how many they would like to purchase. The typical fee is $40 for the full gallery, however, cost may vary dependent on the preferences of the team and shots required. They will be able to print high-quality prints directly from the online gallery. They will also receive a print release to download and print them wherever they would like.
For action shots, please reach out to discuss.
You can expect galleries to be sent out 2-4 weeks after the shoot.
Is there anything I should do to prepare for a session?
I try to take the aspiring athlete shots quickly, spending approximately 5 minutes with each athlete. Therefore, it is best for them to arrive in their uniform ready to go so I can quickly take all photos needed and get to the team shot. I prefer to take team shots at the end to ensure everyone is there, in case anyone is running late.
I would love to have aspiring athlete or action shots taken of my individual child. Is that possible?
Please reach out to me – I would love to discuss!
