Little League Sports Photography

Given that my oldest kid is currently in baseball season, we spend an average of three for four nights at the baseball complex a week. And when we're there, we see parent after parent utilizing a phone camera to document their kid's game. While phone cameras have a place for most casual shots, most of them don't contain an optical zoom adequate to get close to the action. Mobile phones lack the ability to optically zoom in to the image. Rather, they simply digitally zoom in the pixels and often leave grainy, dull, and flat photos. 

The simplest way, albeit somewhat expensive, is to use a DSLR camera with a good telephoto zoom. So, what's a telephoto zoom you ask? It's like strapping a good pair of binoculars to your camera. When it's used correctly, in conjunction with a proper exposure, it can lead to a much better and much more professional picture. 

Taking a good picture with a telephoto lens requires more than just using the lens. It requires proper exposure, setting your camera’s focus settings, establishing composure, and being prepared for the action.

Happy 2016!

Happy New Year to all of our current and new clients!  2015 was a great year for us, and things are already in the works to make 2016 the best year yet.

2016 started out with a chilly trip up north to Chicago, where we captured some awesome pics of the snowy landscape.  We're still working on edits on all of our pictures, so check back later to see more of our cold travel adventures!

As for the business, we are starting out this year with a few exciting events, including:

  • Spring Mini Sessions!  Perfect for a Valentine's Day gift, or family Easter portraits.  Book by February 1st to receive a free 8x10 print.  Contact us for available dates!
  • We are planning to be a sponsor of the Tampa Bay Birth Network 2016 Natural Birth and Baby Expo!  We especially love working with families and babies and, with three children of our own, are proud to sponsor this event that supports local families.
  • We are applying to showcase our artistic photography at the 2016 Mayfaire by-the-Lake art festival.  We had great success at the 2015 Polk Museum of Art Art Crawl show, including winning the People's Choice award, so we are very hopeful that we will be accepted into the Mayfaire show this spring!
  • Speaking of our artistic photography, our online store will be open soon, where we will have prints of our most popular images available.  However, if you see something that you want us to have printed for you, contact us anytime for more info!

Bookings for portrait sessions and weddings are coming in, so be sure to contact us to reserve your dates.  Follow us on Facebook to stay up to date on our most current specials and happenings, and here's to a great 2016 for all!

2015 Holiday Package Special

We are very excited to present our finalized 2015 Holiday Package Special!  We designed the components of this package with what our clients would most want - something to simplify the hectic holiday season!  To deliver that, we have this package including a memorable family photo shoot, instant gifts with framed photos, custom and unique holiday cards, and some fun extras like the shareable video and ornament.

We know it's not even close to Halloween yet, but you need the cards and gifts in before the holidays, and wouldn't it be nice to know that you have all of this done months in advance???  We thought so! :)  

Contact us today to book your session, and come see us at the Lakeland Kids Expo at the Lakeland Center on October 17th to see examples of the package components!
