For anyone who says cheer isn't a sport I dare you to watch what these girls do and then go try and do it. Yes, a small percentage of athletes make millions of dollars to throw or catch a ball and run away from other guys that are trying to hit them, but what these girls do is on a whole other level. These girls throw a 100 pound girl 15 feet in the air and then after she's done twisting they catch her before she hits the ground! Talk about impressive! These girls are athletic as any other athlete and braver than a lot of them. Wow!
Ariana has been cheering since she was 8 or 9 and even after a broken bone or two, sprained ankles, strained wrists, crutches, wraps, boots, and plenty of bruises she's still at it and loving every minute of it! Tough, tough, tough!
I had a great time taking these photos and I have to admit, I'm a proud daddy watching my little girl out there on the cheer mat running, flipping, and having the time of her life! Love you baby girl! You can see more of her photos here.
Contact me if you'd like to schedule a portrait session! I'd love to hear from you.
