After dabbling with photography for many years, it wasn't until 2010 that jumped into the business with both feet.  Why?  Well, my son Joe had suddenly become a high school senior at Plano East.  He played football in middle school and had been playing hockey since he could skate, and for the Plano East hockey teams since 8th grade.  In his senior year we came to the realization that we didn't have any decent action photos to document this important part of his life.  Sure, we had plenty of the posed team portraits - most of them stuffed in a drawer somewhere... I think.  We had more action pictures of professional athletes (that we've never met) hanging on our walls than we did our own children.  

There was one photographer who captured our hockey team during his freshman hockey season.  We searched his website and "tagged" our favorites, but after the season ended we forget to purchase them. Thus the images remained in our shopping cart for three years.  When Joe's senior hockey season commenced, we decided to stop procrastinating and finally order those photos to have a nice sports wall in our home during his final year.  Ooops.  The website was gone.  And so were the photos.  

Does any of this sound familiar?  

If not, it probably will in a few years when you look back and wish you owned some of those action photos of your student athlete as your grandchildren begin following in their mom or dad's athletics footsteps.  There's no better time than NOW to order those prints, jpegs or other products and keepsakes.  And to help discourage your procrastination, and inevitably forget until it's too late (someday I'll also retire), I'm dropping my prices and hope you'll take advantage and OWN these memories.  After each sport/season ends, the prices go back to my standard rates (approximately a 20% increase).  Not only that, some discount package options go away and a minimum order amount of $50 is implemented to compensate for the maintenance of keeping the thousands of archived/previous year galleries available.  

I hope you enjoy and take full advantage of the new in-season pricing.  If you choose the jpeg/digital download option, please remember to BACKUP your files - including all those iPhone (the good ones) and family photos - to an external hard drive, the cloud, or however you choose.  Just don't keep all your files in one place (eggs in one basket) - you never know when technology will fail you. 

Thank you for supporting my photography efforts.  I've truly enjoyed capturing these memories, and hope you enjoy them for a lifetime!
