Stepping Outside the Box

2012 TBall | Durand, Illinois


Jennifer approached me & asked if I would be interested in doing team/single shots of the TBall team in my home town. I anxiously and excitedly agreed to do it! As I pulled up to the field tonight, I had a bit of anxiety...As I normally do before shoots. But this time it was different. This was way out of my comfort zone. This was something that I had never attempted before & I wasn't even sure I could do it. However, only 5 minutes after I did my first test shot, my anxiety was lifted. I love working with children. They laugh at my stupid jokes. They make silly faces and don't feel silly. They're wonderful. 

So I guess I'm writing this so I can reflect back on it. To know that stepping outside your comfort zone is good for your growth. Is good for your confidence. Is good for making you realize that doing something out of your comfort zone will in fact, make you better.

Here are some of the single shots I took this evening.. How adorable are these little tikes? Seriously. Oh and don't mind that spotty nasty grass that I can't get rid of.. We're basically in a drought right now & everything is dead :'(




52:23 | Move


Exercise and I don't get along very well. I don't like how much I want to eat afterwards, I don't like that I build muscle causing the scale to go up verses down. I lack motivation. This little app though has helped that. I love that it tracks my completed miles & all the logistics. If you have an iPhone (don't know if it's available for droid) go download the Nike+ GPS app. It's amazing & it's free.

What's sad is I have only burned a little over a pound in calories in 65 miles.. Ew.

& It's Time....

...for high school baseball! & I love me some high school baseball. Especially when the baby brother is playing. This was the first game I've seen this season. This was also the first game with the 5D MKII along with the new lens. I walked over to the fence and I hear a coach say, "well that's a better camera than my phone..." made me smile!
