ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?!?!
I am not sure that I know a single person who doesn't love this time of year!! Football practice begins in August and runs into October. Young athletes are put to the test with lengthly practices. They get sweaty, hit hard and persevere through the pain. Excitement is in the air: from the cheerleaders and coaches, to the fans on the sidelines...
Once again I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to capture Lake Mary Pop Warner football games. Lake Mary has had a strong, successful Pop Warner history dating back many years, with 3 teams named Mid Florida Champs in 2014 alone!!
Pop Warner was founded in 1929 as a way to get young kids (who were vandalizing property) off the streets and into something more constructive. Through the years, the pop warner program has grown to include young athletes as well as cheerleaders, pom pom squads and majorettes. There are now over 400,000 participants ranging in age from 5-16. Not only are they teaching kids the importance of being part of team, the Pop Warner program insists on academic standards for their players. It is a fabulous organization that I am proud to be associated with.

Hi! Welcome to my blog. Stop back often to view my current work and see what I have been up to lately! It's always fun and games when it involves children, families, and a digital camera! Enjoy! :)
