At the beginning of each baseball season, my boys are conducted to line up and take the traditional posed team photo. Maybe it's because I tend to like something more unique, or possibly because these forced, brightly lit photos don't show much of the boys' personalities and attitude, I started a tradition of my own. There is no better way to get to know my kids' friends then by spending a few minutes photographing each one of them. Their personalities can't hide! Not only does it provide parents with a more personable photo, but I walk away more connected to the kids and inspired to cheer just a little bit harder for each and every one.
