I ♥ Faces - SPORTS! ▌Cochise County Photographer, Arizona

It's "sports in action" week over at I ♥ Faces! I had a fantastic spring in Texas shooting little ones in action, 6 and 7 year olds who adorably clump around the ball, fall more than dribble, and like this sweetheart, the only girl on her team, they all struggle with the concept of "stealing the ball". I LOVE this shot, for I think this is the face that her mother most often sees from the stands. This look of total frustration just taking over her enthusiasm for the game brings back so many memories for me, of basketball camp so many years ago. Here is a "Karyn Fact"; my highschool team was back to back state champions in NY state! I can safely say from experience that someday she will be shooting three pointers in the faces of those boys and they won't be able to stop her!


And my favorite creepy crawly from our new home in Arizona, shot without a telephoto lens mind you- yuck! And people say that it is mating season for these amazing creatures and there are places where you can see hundreds of them at a time, is it disgusting for me to admit that I might seek out one of those places??!!

Go get inspired and join the fun at I ♥ Faces through the link below!

The kids do take their sports seriously! Great capture of her expression. :)

Whaaaa, you got up close to take the shot of spidey? Eww (for me!), but great shot, really!

Welcome back to the fun of I Heart Faces...I followed your lead and took a hiatus, too. :) Love your little ball player and her obviously less-than-pleased reaction to events on the court. Good job keeping the nerves in check and the hands steady for that spider shot. Really, subject matter aside, it is a fabulous image!

What a great expression you captured! And as much as I dislike spiders I have to admit that is great shot. I think I feel something crawling on me now!

I'm not even afraid of spiders, and that photo is making me shiver! I love the little girl's expression!

Seriously, I am having palpatations after seeing the BIG SPIDER! Can NOT say I love that shot (although I am sure it is technically super).

Love your sports shot though! Perfect!
