It's time to start thinking about Autumn.
And more specifically, it's time to start thinking about athlete portraits for Fall sports.
It may be July, but I guarantee you -- in fact, I know by experience -- that others are already working to book photographers for September, October, and November.
Waiting until preseason or the first game to book a photographer runs the risk of losing out with your preferred image maker.
Think about all the athletes, schools, teams and clubs competing in Lancaster County alone. Think about the teams and clubs that compete in bordering counties. Think about all the colleges and universities looking to hire a professional photographer for their media days.
It's kinda already happening. Yeah. I know. August is almost completely booked.
You can get it all done, booked and scheduled while you're waiting in a parking lot to pick up your youth athlete from a skills camp or while resting comfortably on a beach chair.

For teams, the session investment for one team is $95, and it's $65 per team if you are signing up multiple teams.
For individual athletes, the session investment is $545 and it includes with your portrait experience a 6x9" album with your favorite images.
I'm ready for pumpkin-flavored everything season. And for tailgating, Friday night lights, the optimism for the start of a new sports season, and a chance to help you be your child's No. 1 fan.
