Some Soccer Action

I got to go take some action shots of my little friend yesterday evening. He's such a great soccer player. He even scored a goal! I haven't gotten my kids into soccer yet, but I give kudos to all the soccer mom's and dad's out there who brave the weather just to see their kids play. It is the end of April, but it felt more like February outside! Here are some fun shots of the game.....

Two Passions......One Day

Many of you already know that I'm one of those people who loves to enter running races and triathlons. I have always thought volunteering would be fun, just because I love the whole atmosphere and the great positive attitudes that racers always seem to have. I wouldn't even care what I did to volunteer, whether it be handing out gatorade, band-aids, helping with registration, or just simply cheering people on.

One of my other passions is photography. In nearly every race I've run, there have been photographers on the course, getting great shots of the racers in the middle of the action.

Joaquim Hailer owns Zazoosh photography, which is one of those companies that have photographed many of the triathlons I've participated in. As I ride or run past the photographer, I always think, man, that would be fun to be a photographer for one of these races someday!

Well, that opportunity presented itself to me the other day. Out of the blue. I was asked by a fellow photographer to be an assistant at the finish line for the Ogden Marathon! I feel so excited, happy, and just honored that they would ask! I ran that race last year, so (as cheesy as it sounds), it has a "special place" in my heart. And now I will be at the other end of the camera, capturing the racers at the best part of the day, when they complete their goal at the finish line.

I think I will be smiling all day long on May 15th! :)

Mersereau Family

This was such a fun and cute family! They are originally from Canada, and they spoke English and French. It was so fun to listen to them speak to their children in french. :) They have lived in so many places, including Australia! Thanks, Mersereau family, it was so nice to meet you!
