I do not love talking about myself, but I love photography!

When an athlete steps in front of my camera, their excitement and nerves fill the room. With each pose and adjustment of the lighting, I can sense their determination to showcase their true strength and character through the lens.

One memorable session stands out when a young softball player trying to act determined and focused, stepped in front of my camera. As I started to take his photos his confidence grew with each click and he began to shine. It’s not just about capturing images; it’s about igniting the fire within athletes, revealing their true strength, and immortalizing their dedication through the art of photography.

I have honed my skills and expertise over the years in professional photography and continue to learn and explore new techniques. I continue to take online classes and go to several professional conferences yearly.

I began like a lot of parents, taking photos of my own kids during sporting events. I was approached by several parents because I was using a ‘nice’ camera. Once more people tried with similar cameras and still did not get the results they wanted, I was asked for advice.

This led me to learn more also and started my dream of being a professional photographer.

At Design by Sheila, I offer a comprehensive range of photography services tailored specifically for youth and high school sports. Whether you’re looking for images of individual athletes or team photos for keepsakes, programs, flyers, and more, I strive to capture the essence of each moment.

I understand the importance of these memories and work hard to ensure each photograph reflects the energy, dedication, and excitement of the sport.

Individual and Team Photos

For individual athletes, I capture both portrait and staged action shots, highlighting their skills and personality. My portrait sessions are designed to bring out the best in each athlete, providing a range of poses and settings that showcase their unique character.

For team or group photos, I aim to encapsulate the unity and spirit of the group, striving to create images that each team member will cherish for years to come. These photos are perfect for keepsakes, programs, and flyers, ensuring that each season’s hard work and achievements are beautifully documented. I can also bring individual pictures together to create one-of-a-kind group pictures.

Unique Design Elements

One of the standout features of my services is the incorporation of graphic design elements into my photography. With my design background, I can add unique backgrounds, typography, logos, and other design features to create truly one-of-a-kind images. This allows for a more personalized and professional look, setting your photos apart from traditional sports photography.

I use high-quality design software to enhance each image, whether it’s adding a school logo, player’s name, or a dynamic background that captures the essence of the sport. These design elements are not just added embellishments but are carefully crafted to complement the photo and bring out its best qualities. This attention to detail ensures that every photo I deliver is a piece of art.
