From my archives comes this first hockey shoot with my nephew.
My 5 year old nephew is beginning to discover his love for our national sport, hockey. The Maple Leafs haven’t been adopted as his favourite team just yet, but I’m working on it. For now, Team Canada is a no-brainer for him – especially this time of year with the World Jr Tournament!
Not one to stand still for more than a few moments, I had my work cut out for me with his Mother looking for hockey portraits as well as Christmas photos all the same day. Nothing short of a bribe would do… if he was game to make Mom happy with her photos requests then he and I would finish off with some fun star wars and light sabre pics. Deal! So between bouts of spontaneous mini-sticks games (I totally dominated by the way!) we managed to snap some fun, creative hockey portraits and Mom was happy.
My nephew has big plans for his hockey career, so get your autographs now while they’re still affordable.
