I had a chance this weekend "thanks to my cousin" to take photos at a special needs martial arts tournament & i must say that it is one of a few rewarding things that i have done in my entire life. The contestants and their families have some of the most genuine pure hearts & fantastic enthusiasm i have EVER seen towards life.
Above is a volunteer w/ one of the contestants... love it! Below, i had a chance to capture this wonderful move! Although it is a little out of focus he was pretty awesome!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this one because he is SO freaking adorable it almost KILLS you haha. He is praying to the gods to let him win or at least give him a great score!
Could you tell that she was ecstatic?!
And here is her actual expression!!! Love it!
This weekend was fantastic! Also had a chance to shoot photos for my co-worker & her family!! Great growing experience!!
