Take Pictures of Your Baseball and Softball Kids

“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” … – Ansel Adams

Baseball and softball parents should take my advice and take a lot of pictures. The memories from all of the games and practices will be some of your favorites later, and you will want to memorialize them in some good photos.

Since most people take photos on their phones, load them onto their computers, and then maybe share them on social media sites, the old tradition of photo albums and hanging pictures has been lost. There are some really great apps available for your phone to turn all those pictures into printable media at some fantastic prices.

The best app I have found for printing photos from your phone is FreePrints. The FreePrints app allows you to print 1,000 prints per year and you just pay for the shipping. The way it works is that you get (85) 4″ x 6″ prints per month for free. There are also other sizes of prints available.

FreePrints allows you to access photos not only from your phone, but also Facebook, Instagram, and more. Once you select your photos you can choose the size you like, and then crop, resize, zoom, or rotate your photos to get them just right. Again, all you pay for is the shipping.

Just imagine having your home filled with pictures of your little ballers as they progress through their baseball careers.

Why take all of those pics if you’re not going to enjoy them? There are so many different types of frames and layouts you could do, and maybe you could even make some scrapbooks. Here are some other ideas for what to do with your photos of kids’ sports.

They really look like art when you hang them around the house. A frame with six or eight slots looks great with photos in it. You don’t even have to be a great photographer to get great shots when you make them black and white. They always look artsy. There are also some great filters available on your phone and even in Instagram that make your photos look professional or give them some unique effect. Search around the internet for some great black and white photo ideas for your frames.

Another great app for printing photos is Shutterfly. The nice thing about Shutterfly is that you can share photos with other people and they can upload theirs so there is a photo community of sorts. We have used Shutterfly for several teams and you can have a separate account for each team. Our team mom last season actually used it for our team site with schedule, roster, notes, etc.

You can add text and graphics to make it look like a real book. These make great personalized photo albums for kids which can include their sports and other activities.

I think the content is different then what I usually write a review on and I actually found it very interesting. I actually learned quite a bit from this site
