I got caught up having to take care of lots of editing and printing during this game, so I didn’t get the chance to shoot much game action or many features, but here’s a few from last night’s happenings at the Park.
This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Don’t fall behind on editing! It’s hard to do sometimes, particularly at the end of a homestand when things pile on top of one another.
And with that, I’m finished shooting after a long, busy ten game homestand. As always, thank you so much for following!

I really enjoyed shooting the Boston Red Sox Japanese baseball exchange game yesterday on one of the baseball fields on the Boston Common. It brought me right back to my own days growing up on the diamond. Those days made for some of the best memories I have, and shooting this reminded me how lucky I am to still be around baseball so much.

I got called in last minute to shoot another Kids’ Clinic today. I got some good, energetic, spirited shots, including this one which I think I liked the most.

I was sent out to shoot another Kids’ Clinic yesterday. I think the one I shot on Tuesday looked a bit better as far as pictures go, although I liked this image more than anything I got on Tuesday.
I think it’s a good moment. I love the expressions on all of the other kids in the background.
