Soccer Pics 101

I had the great pleasure of spending some time with another Rush soccer team this weekend. I've found a bit of a niche meeting up with teams the hour before the game to spend some time with the players taking non-traditional soccer portraits to give families something a bit more sincere and reflective of their children's personalities than the token framed soccer pictures that can cost them an arm and a leg.

Figuring out how to work with each child in 5 minutes or less to produce an array of poses and strong portraits has been a challenge in and of itself. I've worked out the girl's team portraits in 5 easy steps:

1. Traditional soccer pose

2. Stomach, head in hands

3. Stomach, look up at me

4. Stand, ball under arm

5. Silly face

Boys are a bit different, as the stomach pose falls flat with them, but the same basic ideas apply...the girls did not disappoint this weekend! They were full of giggles, smiles and pep. Go girls! Here's to a great season!
