A Compliment From My Nephew

Last fall my nephew came to me and asked me to take pictures of him playing football. I took that as a great compliment. My nephew thinks I'm a good enough photographer to capture him playing the sport he loves. How could I say no to that?

As a sophomore my nephew (#52) played his first year of varsity football! To say I'm a proud aunt would probably be understating things a bit. :)

Turns out sports photography is a lot of fun! There is a lot of energy, running up and down the field and the thrill of catching my nephew sacking the quarterback! I hope he asks me to photograph his next football season. :) 
                                         This is what happens when you ask your photographer aunt to take football pictures . . . artsy football shots!
                                                                               These 3 pictures are of my nephew's first quarterback sack!

                                                                                                   My nephew is a beast! LOL! :)
                                                                                                           Another quarterback sack!

 This is one of my favorite tackles. In the top picture you can see my nephew wrapped himself around the guy and threw him to the ground. In the bottom picture my nephew is getting back up while the guy he threw to the ground is still falling. I find that very amusing!
