About Me

A little about me...... In 1985 i played my 1st year of youth football. we lost our first game of the season by one little point, we went undefeated for the rest of the season and ultimately won the championship. needless to say that moment in time was one of my fondest memories of my youth. however. the only picture i ever saw from that amazing experience was a small news paper article in the local paper. fast forward to 1998 when i was blessed with my first born son. he began playing football at the tender age of 8. thats when i knew that i had to document every moment of his first football year by way of photography. i ran to the nearest Best buy and bought what i thought was top of the line DSLR camera and began taking pictures. i quickly realized that taking pictures was a lot tougher than i thought. but i kept shooting and kept shooting. i was determined that i was going to master my craft and read numerous books and watched countless hours of Youtube videos. as my photography skills blossomed my sons team suffered their only loss against the leagues #1 ranked and undefeated team. my sons team went undefeated after their first loss. unfortunately the other team went undefeated for the entire season. they ultimately met again for a rematch in the championship tittle game. by this time my skills were poor at best. lol but i kept shooting. the championship game went into over time 0-0. after the undefeated team suffered their only loss in the championship tittle game, i ran onto the field and with tears in my eyes i picked up my little champion and squeezed him as tight as i could. the look in his eyes told me that he didn't understand what they had just accomplished. but i had all the pictures that he could later enjoy when he was a lil older and could appreciate such an amazing moment in his young life. moral of the story is this. memories fade pictures don't. they allow us to relive the most important moments of our lives. TRUE STORY! :)
