What an honor to photograph the Galena Grizzlies fall cheer team portraits this year! Thank you, Xavier and the rest of the team at Galena High School for asking me to photograph your incredible group of athletes!
Athlete Cheer Portraits at UNR
We started the shoot by photographing ALL of the different cheer groups on the south end of the quad at UNR. I love the variety we got out of one location and multiple poses per group. The architecture at UNR is so cool – and a perfect backdrop for groups like this.
After all of the big group portraits, we got all of the traditional headshots for each athlete and coach. I love how gorgeous the brick and ivy background was for those sets of portraits! My only wish would have been that the sun had peeked out from the clouds during this time, but such is the life of a photographer here in Northern Nevada with our wacky weather!
Next, we created grad portraits for all of the graduating seniors. This was so special for me to be able to provide portraits of this milestone for each senior! And after that, we were able to create more individual portraits in other areas of the south quad, plus buddy portraits! The buddy portraits were a pure blast – so much fun going on!!
Cheer Coach Portraits
Finally, I spent a little bit of extra time with the coaches to get them some more creative headshots. I had a great time with the three of them after a long afternoon of photographing all of the athletes!
I had the most amazing time photographing the Galena High School Cheer Team, and I hope so much that I get the chance to do this again for them!
If you have a need for team portraits or know a high school that could use a refreshing new outlook on team portraits, please reach out to me! I’d love to chat with you about your photography needs and show you how I can make your team portraits a fun and professional experience that your students and their parents will LOVE.
