It has been fun to get to know Alicia Webb for over a year and a half, she came to one of my first photography classes, and I had no idea who Brandon Webb was till I got home and told Casey that his wife was in my class.  He quickly explained that he was one of the Diamondbacks BIGGEST pitchers…..OH!  (Shows how much I watch sports, huh?)  I had a blast shooting their daughter’s birthday party in the spring, and they are such great down to earth people.  Not too much hype, lovin on their cute kiddos, and just great people!!

When Alicia told me we could only shoot at Chase Field at 1:00, I was so panicked!!!  I told her, this is the worst time of day to shoot…aagh!!    But with the season ending and games every night it was our only option.    I called my bestie photog friends for some encouragement and tips to shoot during the nightmare hours, and here is some of what we got…   we looked for shade as much as we could, but HAD to get some images on that pitchers mound too!

I got my two boys to come and “assist” and we thought we were so cool being in the “special parking lot” and wearing security guest badges.  We even got to go up to the corporate offices (since that was the only restroom at the time).  The boys loved checking out the cool cars in the players parking lot, but when we stepped out of the dugout and onto the field, their jaws dropped, and the word “awesome” was used over and over!   Seriously the coolest thing!    They were such troopers helping with the reflectors, and the kids.   Now they can say they’ve walked on the field, and even on the pitchers mound.  The Webbs were so gracious and patient with them too…

Here is some of our fun…

And here are my helpers… which reminds me of how cute my Chase was.  We were introduced to their PR gal that was taking us upstairs, and as we were walking down the hall, Chase blurts out, “my name is CHASE”, to which she casually told him it was nice to meet him, and introduced herself.  This was not the type of reception my little guy wanted after announcing in CHASE field that his name is CHASE.  But he lived, and I was cracking up inside!
