We had a great year working with so many of you! It was fun and exciting and sometimes a bit more challenging than expected, and we got awesome images.
Here is a quick look back over the last 12 months, highlighting some of our favorite shots from this year.
This year we got to play with newborns, expecting moms, brides, fun seniors and awesome families. Several of you were repeat clients and we love you for it! Some of you were new to Wertman Photography. We want to thank you for putting your trust in us!
Here is wishing you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and fun time with your family and friends.
Enjoy the look back over the year and come join us again in 2017.
Two weeks ago we had the pleasure of working with Alderson Broaddus’ swim team again. I was great working with the athletes we met last year and working with some of the new recruits.
The weather was much warmer this year than last and the sun was out the entire time we were there. More of the swimmers opted in to capture action shots this year as well. We used a different location for the team shots and I still worked in different areas of the campus. 19 of the 20 swimmers were able to attend the team picture and everyone was there for the head shots. All in all a successful trip.
What I enjoy most in working with these young adults is seeing the obvious connection they have as a team and their dedication to their sport. They are all very easy to talk to and very easy to get good pictures of.
Athletes as a rule are fun to work with. They love showing off their skills, their athleticism and in this case, how they have grown in one year.
When we get to work with a particular team year after year, it is fun to see how the athletes change, grow up and develop in their skill set.
It surprised me to see how these young men and women had changed in a year. They are, after all in college and at least the juniors and seniors are over 20. Yes, they are looking older and more mature. They are coming into their own in many ways and athletically this shows.
We have worked with a couple of other teams as well, but for me at least, being the mother of a swimmer, this is the most fun.
If your child is part of a team, school or club, and you are tired of seeing the same pictures every year, please consider sharing this post with your coach and school. The images captured during this shoot have just been shared with the parents and part of the proceeds from the picture purchases will go back to the team to help them go to Florida for training in January.
Every sports team raises money for gear, trips, entry fees and other assorted stuff. Why not raise funds this way? If you are interested please give us a call today at 301-693-3021.
Wertman Photography is now offering team action sports photography. We have been offering athletic photography for a while, creating portraits that show the athlete’s spirit, determination and personality. Now we are taking it one step further and will be offering action shots for teams of all sizes and ages.
It all started when I had a chance to take photos for my daughter’s college swim team. I took care of the individual shots of each swimmer that are now on their website ( Alderson Broaddus University), created some killer team photos and captured action shots of the swimmers who wanted to participate. I created a controlled environment; the coach gave us one lane in which we got to play and have some fun.
Every athlete looks like the latest olympian in their minds and it is this look we are after during our time with them. For swimming, you can not get these shots during a meet. The lighting is not right and too many people crowd the deck. This is true for all sports.
We are offering a controlled environment during a practice night, under guidance of the coach, giving each player a chance to look their strongest and best.
Contact us today if you want your team, club or dance school to book a day with Wertman Photography to create images like you have never seen them before. Images you will be proud to share with family, friends and hang on your wall. Images that will make your son and daughter look like a champion.
