Getting to work with high school seniors and learning about their passions is amazing. Lately, I have been working with a lot of athletes, many of them like Tom play more than one sport. Tom has been a soccer player since he was allowed to start playing, and when he got to high school he started wrestling. I meet Tom a few years ago and have worked with him the past two fall seasons for his soccer action collages.
This time around I got to go out on a shoot with Tom to his high school’s bleachers, so many football games watched from those seats. Not to mention all of the games that he got to play on that field, with the fans in the stands cheering Tom and his team on. While Tom is a star on the soccer field he is also a champion wrestler, this year Tom took #1 in his district for wrestling.
Good luck next year Tom in the beginning of your college journey and PA career.
Love and Joy.

2017 is only a few days away and we are looking back at some of our favorite pictures, sessions, and blogs for the 2016 year.
TLM Productions started the year off with celebrating Laila’s first birthday with a cake smash session. Laila had cake all over everything and we had a dance party too!
We joined a few seniors and helped them celebrate their senior year with senior portraits that showed off their personal styles.
Ran the fields with the amazing TLM Sports athletes!
Shared the love with our loving couples to celebrate proms, weddings, love, and engagements!
Here is to an amazing 2017!
Every school has there own way of celebrating being back at school for another year. Once a year in the fall, high schools and colleges, alike, come together for the homecoming football game. High schools typically have a dance the following night to find out who the homecoming king and queen are. One school in my area does a semi formal dance, and the girls dress up in cocktail dresses and the boys in suits.
This year, I had the pleasure of working with one of the seniors from the local high school. Renae is always fun to work with, and this session was no different. She wanted to go somewhere that meant a lot to her and had great scenery. We decided on Gloucester Township Park where she played soccer growing up and is still does for her club team.
Renae was a trooper, it was cold and windy, but you would never know from the pictures.
Renae had two of her friends do her hair and makeup, which came out beautifully.

My favorite part of a shoot is capturing that moment that will last in your memory forever, even if it is the smallest thing. Taking pictures during a sports game is thrilling; the fast pace, try to keep up with me feeling, is crazy and can be stressful, but I live for it. The quick on your toes thinking proves to myself that this is where I want to be and can’t live without it. The individual images tells one kind of story, but a collection of them tells a larger story. I am so happy that these college and high school students wanted to tell a larger story and chose me to be a part of it. What story do you like telling from the days that you played? Or if you’re still playing, what memory is your favorite team memory or game time story? Maybe that time that the other team was 45 minutes late to the game so your team made a life size pink ribbon for the “Support Breast Cancer” game, your first goal on the varsity women’s soccer team,
or the first time you got to pitch for your college’s club baseball team,
maybe it was the first time you stood up on your surfboard.
We all have stories, tell them in a different way, through your sports collage.
