Summer is in full swing, and what better way to beat the scorching heat than with an early morning football photo session? Picture this: an early morning adventure to a local field, wearing your best football gear, and striking some epic poses for the camera. With the sun just starting to heat things up, early morning was the perfect time to embrace the playful side of this sport and create some epic photos.
When it’s time for your session, gather all your gear—jersey, cleats, helmet, gloves, and anything else that showcases your passion for whatever sport you love. In this case, we were taking football pictures, and this athlete came with all the right stuff.
We chose the perfect location for this session – the football field. Not sure these are always available for photo sessions, so make sure you check with your school or your coach prior to your session so you’ll be sure to have access to the field or court of your choice. And hopefully, the field you choose will have an interesting scoreboard or some bleachers to make a nice backdrop for your pictures.
To avoid the heat, aim to start your photo session early in the morning when the temperatures are still pleasant. The soft morning light will add a touch of magic to your photos, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Plus, you’ll have the added benefit of avoiding crowded fields, allowing you to roam freely and strike some incredible poses without any interruptions.
Once you’re all set up at the chosen location, it’s time to let your creativity flow and embrace the playful side of sports! We had the whole field to ourselves for this sports photo session to experiment with various poses, such as mid-air jumps, pretending to catch an epic pass, or striking a fierce victory pose. The possibilities are endless, and it’s all about making your photo session truly unique and memorable.
And you don’t have to do this alone. Grab a few friends and let’s schedule a session. A football photo session during the summer is a fantastic way to have fun, bond with your teammates, and create some epic photos. By choosing the right location, timing, and bringing your enthusiasm and creativity to the forefront, you’ll capture the essence of your love for the game and the joy of being part of a team.
So pack up your gear, grab a couple of teammates if you want to, and let’s book a session! As always, you can find me over at Paula Mason Photography! Can’t wait to meet you.
Until next time…
