Friday Night Lights

Friday Night Lights

My oldest nephew, the one who named me Kiki, is a senior this year. He’s the starting quarterback so my mind began planning unique out of the box shoots this summer. Last night we had only 15 minutes but had a blast! Water and smoke grenades make for an epic session. One of his buddies said these images were “sick!”  That’s high praise.  


my husband built the waterfall for me. It worked like a champ. 


He’s a red head, so we had to do red smoke grenades.  Class of 2018, fall is sold out but we do have a few available dates this spring. Don’t wait to book! 


Friday Night Lights

Football Season is finally here!  And our oldest nephew, the one who named me Kiki, is the starting quarterback.  Naturally, I had to bring my largest (600mm) lens to capture some of the thrill of the game.  If you follow us on Facebook (KikisCornerPhotography), you have already seen them.  But, I thought I would post a few here too.  




He is also a Class of 2018 did that happen so quickly?




Powder Puff Champion

Last week our baby girl and her fellow seniors along with the sophomore girls took on the Freshman and Junior girls at the annual Powder Puff game.  The game itself brought back a flood of memories from childhood when Hannah played flag football with they boys.  Back then, she was the only girl playing flag football and we were pretty proud of that fact. flag football with the boys

See our little blondie?  We may or may not have paid her by the flags that she captured....just saying.  She was a good player and not intimidated in the least after a little incentive.  Ha!

Ok, I'm back from a little walk down memory lane and back to the recent Powder Puff Game.  The girls got together with the some of the Varsity Football boys as their coaches and practiced the entire week before the big game.  Finally, it was game time!  These Senior Girls have not lost a game that they played in throughout their high school career and they won last Thursday night too.  Way to go Hannah and fellow senior girls!!!

Hannah had an awesome game.  She got a fumble recovery and sacked the quarterback.  She was stellar on defense....yes, I am totally biased.

The conversations we overheard on the sidelines from the coaches were hilarious!  One of the boys kept hollering, "Can you at least try not to run like a girl? Please??"

Another one hollered, "What the heck are you doing?  That is not what we practiced!!!  And after they ran it in for a touch down he hollered, "Way to go!"  Ha!

But one of my favorite memories was watching the girls, after they scored a touch down, stop and take a group selfie.  I never see that on Friday Nights with the football boys, but I loved it.  So much fun!

sisters, band, football game, sweet momentOur Rachel came home from college this weekend and we were all sooooooooooo happy to see her.  Our family of four was reunited and it never felt so good!  We have certainly missed having our girls all to ourselves and it was just what this heart of mine needed.  My cup was full and I treasured every moment. Rachel joined her daddy and I on the sidelines Friday night to capture pictures of the football boys and the band.  Hannah is the Drum Major for the second year in a row. I turned around for a second to see Rachel saying hello to her sister in the stands.   I love this image so much! From a photographer's perspective, it's technically way off, the color balance is off, and it's underexposed big time, but as a mom, it was a moment I didn't want to miss capturing and I treasure it!  It shows the special sister relationship our girls are blessed to have and we are blessed to watch. I love the image but love these two daughters of ours even more.  What joy is ours to be their parents!

Thinking about this image, it makes me think of our Heavenly Father and how He sees us....sees the real us.  We aren't picture perfect all of the time (or even much of the time if we are honest) and our lives certainly aren't picture perfect either, but He loves us and even treasures us.  We are the apple of His eye....what a blessed thought!
