The coach of last night's team asked if any of the parents could take pictures for the soccer academy. My husband gladly raised my hand for the job. I do love taking photos, but I am so not a professional. Oh, the pressure! (Julia - I needed a quick tutorial on soccer photography from you!) I also really do not like shooting in bright sunlight. I can't even see the LCD to see if I'm taking any decent shots. (Tips, anyone?) Fortunately, I got a few decent ones. WHEW! Here are my favorites of Leila.
Even though the other girl won the ball, I liked this action shot.
Leila loves to play goalie. I get so nervous when she plays goalie, but she did great last night. She played goalie a few times and never let a goal in. After one particularly good save, the coach said, "Leila, you dove on that ball like it was money!" :)
Leila also scored a beautiful goal last night, but I didn't get a picture of it. :(
Two hours of soccer games is a lot for a 3-year old, but fortunately, she had the best seat in the house (not that she sat for long)... and her S*tarburst to keep her happy.
