Check out this cool baseball themed senior Session Share from Powell Woulfe Photography.
Get to know Angela:
I first picked up a camera when I was barely out of preschool. Photography has played an important role throughout my life, and was a passion I shared with my father, who inspired me to really see through the lens. I love being behind the camera, and capturing those precious memories. I’ve become a historian unintentionally, as I document the lives of my family and my client family. It’s simultaneously humbling and exhilarating to be included in these major milestones of life.
When I’m not behind the camera, I’m spending time with the loves of my life: my husband, daughter, and two furbabies (a yellow lab and a miniature schnauzer). I believe they are an important part of what I do, as they inspire me to create, connect, and share. I couldn’t do this without them!

A bit about the session:
David came to me when I was looking for senior guys to work with. It’s easy to get the girls in front of the camera, but the fellas are always a bit more reserved. Well, David’s enthusiasm for the session was inspiring – he was ready to get to work! We chatted a little bit about school and sports, and it became clear that we needed to make baseball a BIG part of his session. (He’d been playing since the age of 4!) Because I wanted to focus on David and his connection to America’s favorite pastime I wanted to use simple locations that would draw the eye back to the focus, but without sacrificing color or texture. (Texture plays a large role in many of my sessions!) I decided to go with an urban feel, and we headed to the local downtown area, which is going through a revitalization. We shot in alleys, vacant lots, and even found an old blacksmithing shop, which lent a masculine feel to the images without detracting from our focus.
As we progressed through the session, David was so natural and just himself, and it shines through in his portraits. I’ve found in working with teen guys, they are much more relaxed when you can keep them in their element, and for this session, baseball was that element! I also find that it is helpful for my seniors to bring a friend along to coach them. They know their friend best. David brought along his girlfriend, to help with the important wardrobe decisions. Time passed so quickly that morning, and we had a great time! David’s smile and laugh are definitely contagious, and I was honored to capture these important moments in his journey!
