I grew up in Clare, MI. As a result, being a fan of *most* Michigan teams is in my blood (even if I’ll admittedly not watch the games often)…but, I do actually like baseball. Out of all of the sports that are available to watch, baseball would absolutely be my favorite, with the Detroit Tigers being at the top (because of the whole growing up in Michigan thing.) Although, if sports are talked in our home, it likely revolves around the Indianopolis Colts (due to that being my husband’s favorite team) and him wishing he could turn his wife into a football fan. I don’t get it. There’s just something so much better about going to a baseball game that seems to be an all-American kind of thing. I love it because it gives our family time to unplug from everything and just go and enjoy ourselves. Plus, hearing the crack of the bat as it hits the ball is unlike any other sound. Popcorn and hot dogs also don’t hurt that love for family time together.
Almost two years ago, I happened to realize a set of my friends were fans of the Detroit Tigers as well. As a result, of course they had a custom outfit made for their beautiful baby girl that showed their love for the sport (and the team). The only thing that could have made the session better was having a mini baseball bat and baseball that I could add into the portrait. It’ll definitely be on the list for things to add in for next time I get to do a session for baseball fans. One of my dreams is eventually to have the opportunity to do newborn portraits (or even baby portraits) for someone that’s actually on the team. Big dreams, but it can happen, right?
Here are some of the images from that session. So maybe while you’re getting ready to watch the game today (which starts at 1pm) you can check out the cuteness of these portraits. Everyone in Cleveland (who are likely rooting for the Indians) you can enjoy the images from the session too! If you’d even like to theme your own newborn shoot with some Indians apparel, I’ll work with you to create some beautiful images featuring your favorite team. 🙂
and just because I love to show progressions, here is that baby girl enjoying her one year session with me too. I love watching babies grow over their first year!
