What better way to show HAPPY…

My niece not only makes me happy when I see her but she is usually always happy!  This photo was taken at a local park while we were doing her school pictures.  She just absolutely had to have a picture hanging upside down on the monkey bars.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning


WM P2 DSC_6839

The women’s hurdles had just finished with an amazing young lady from Athens winning.  Now the gun has gone off and the boys are leaving their blocks.  I cannot believe the adrenaline rush that I am experiencing let alone the runners!  I am moving, backing up trying not to trip over my own feet.  As my heart is racing, I get set and I start taking more pictures.  Here is what I captured…

Congratulations, Jesse Anderson from Union City took first place at his home track invitational!

I chose the first picture for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning because being a sports photographer I have captured several beginnings of races, games, matches and competitions…  and I think this is my favorite beginnings to a race that I have photographed so far.  Char

Introducing 2014 Senior from Union City High School ~ Audrey


fbSeniorWordAudreynameyear

It was a delight to photograph Audrey’s Senior Portrait Session.  Audrey is an outgoing young lady who was recently a nominee for Homecoming Queen at Union City High School.  She enjoys Cross Country, Golf and playing her bass guitar in the Band.

We started out at Stuart’s Landing where we used the gazebo for some sport and band related pictures.  Then we stepped out side of the gazebo to capture Audrey with her favorite pair of running shoes.

Then we walked down to Perrin Dam.  There are some wonderful areas along the River Walkway in Marshall, Michigan that can be used for Portraits…  for example, this log that laid on a section of land just south of Perrin Damn.

Off to downtown Marshall where we took pictures along Jefferson Street utilizing the gorgeous red and brown brick walls with green doorways.

We even had Audrey’s family as lookouts for traffic while Audrey and I played in the street to capture these next shots.

Prints or Downloads


I have had a few people inquire about how to purchase Prints & Downloads from my website.  Here is a quick break down on 2 ways to purchase Prints & Downloads from my website…

Add to Cart

All galleries will have a button “Add to Cart” in the upper right hand corner.

Purchasing Sports Prints

When you click “This Photo” you will be taken to this screen.  Select the size print you would like to purchase and then you can click “Back to Photos” to add more to your cart or “Checkout” to purchase the prints you have in your cart.

Purchasing Sports Downloads

You can also click “Downloads” at the top of the shopping cart.  This will take you to the screen shown above.  Here is a break down on the different sized downloadable file that are offered

– Low Res (1Mpix) is about 1000 x 1000 megapixel file.  This will work for 4″ x 6″, 5″ x 7″ and possibly 8″ x 10″ prints.

– High Res (4Mpix) is what you would purchase for good quality 8″ x 10″ or larger prints (reasonably sized).

– Original File is just that.  It is my original file which is high quality and resolution.  This would be purchased for printing large poster      or larger prints.

All downloadable files come with a personal print release which basically states that you can print these photos for your personal use. You cannot resell any of my files or prints.

Purchasing All Photos in Gallery

This screen viewed above is what you will see if you select “Photos from this Gallery” when you click on “Add to Cart”.  This screen is actually pretty cool if you have several pictures in a gallery that you would like to purchase!  You can select the Print Size or Download that you would like to purchase and then just click on each of the pictures that you would like to purchase.  Once you click “Add Photos to Cart” you can continue on to another gallery and purchase more!

Prices shown here are for Sports and Event Galleries only.  If you are interested in Portrait Session & Prints Prices, please contact me.

Thank you for your business and support but even more so…  Thank you for allowing me to photograph your athletes!

You will notice that the new Team Portrait prints look similar to the Memory Mates!  Now you have nice complimentary prints for scrapbooks and framing.  There will be times when I will customize the Memory Mates to suit the teams, school/team colors and portraits taken.  Here is an example of a change in the Memory Mate for the same school but different sport:

I am looking forward to an exciting and busy year of High School & Middle School Sports!  Good luck to all of the teams that I am photographing…  Athens, Tekonsha & Union City.  You will also find me in Harper Creek this fall photographing athletes competing in Football & Volleyball.
