LET YOUR ART GUIDE YOU ~ WEEK 18 ~



Is there anything more American than baseball?

I think not!!

Our best friends invited us to a baseball game this week. Ryan, officiates sporting events in the evenings and we were able to watch him work. It was exhilarating and amazing seeing our friend making calls, plus it has been years since I had been to a baseball game.

See- it's in my blood. Some of my fondest memories as a child are going to night games with my father and watching him play as the flood lights washed the field with bright light. Curling my fingers through the fence and holding on with anxiety as my dad ran the bases is such a visceral memory... One that I cherish!

They asked me to capture Ryan working for his portfolio. I was more than happy to do it and captured some great moments.
















I don't think I could have captured a more precious moment. This is Easton looking at his daddy working on home plate.

Precious!! Simply precious!

Those are awesome pictures Emily! I might be wanting to buy a baseball one...For Tanner's room I want to do vintage sports with baseball, basketball, football and maybe golf. That first picture of the baseball is just what I have in mind.

To the Mackay Family about buying the baseball picture. I am the one who's husband Emily took pictures of, and my son's room is done in vintage baseball, football, and golf. I am going to have this baseball picture blown up and framed in his room.....it goes PERFECT with the theme if that's what you're going for! These pictures look even better printed if you can believe that they could look any better! Emily you are an amazing photographer, I'm so glad you were able to capture such precious memories for Ryan and our family! Love ya!
