Never Swim Past Your Own Wall

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Happy Wednesday night to everyone! So things are going phenomenally well with Kayla F Photography!! Logo and business cards are designed and getting ready to be sent off to the printers! I can't wait for everything to get up and running...next will be a business license! :)

So this next post is super awesome! My brother has been the Karns High School Swim Coach for the last 5 seasons and has asked me to do some photography for them almost every season! Swimming is not an easy sport to photograph; there is so much that can go wrong: light (always the worst light EVER), speed of the swimmers, capturing them at the right moment and not getting pictures just full of splashes! However, when you get a great photograph it really is so rewarding! So here is a little sample of some of this years swimming; my brother has moved down to South Alabama and is starting his career and I couldn't be more proud. But with that comes an end to his coaching (for now at least). I don't see him giving it up completely because he is so good at it and he really builds amazing relationships with his swimmers and their parents. You can tell that they think so highly of him; so without further rambling, here is the 2010-2011 Karns High Swim Team!

And he helped out with Grace Christian Academy's Swim Team as well!

Tyler, my brother, really is great with his swimmers! He tries to be such an influence and really tries to make a good impression on them...here is a not so great example of that! :)

I love this set! This little boy was cheering on his uncle Allen, one of the swimmers, and Tyler got right down there with him and was cheering him on too...even if it was just the warm-ups.

Now, this is my favorite picture of the night. It is technically horrendous, but I love the grain, the motion and the simplicity of the black and white.

My brother has coached and been apart of young kids lives for 6 seasons; some more when he coached them in summer swim. He has a huge heart and sometimes worked 3 jobs while he was coaching. I wanted to do a little something to show on my end how highly I think of him and what he has accomplished.
