Class of ’15 Bulldawg Volleyball


Diedri, Hannah, Corina, Addie and Bailey

I spent a relaxing evening at the NMSU Golf Course last Friday with the seniors from the Las Cruces High School Volleyball team taking shots for the upcoming year. I’ve had the pleasure to know these young ladies for their volleyball career through high school, and I think the 2014 season will be special for them.

For the shoot, we started in the shade on the course and eventually made our way back up to the clubhouse as the sun went down. We finished up on the putting green, and not a minute too soon, as the sprinklers turned on right as they were packing up. I’m pretty sure their screams got the attention of the whole course!

Here are a couple of my favorite shots from the evening, and some action shots from back in the day–you can tell they mean business on the court.

I’ve had a long-standing relationship with the LCHS Poms in some form or another over the last 5 or 6 years (Lucinda Banegas the original coach I began working with is now the NMSU Sundancer coach,) so I was happy to get the call to make some quick team photographs for the group.

Because of the giant thunderstorms in the area, we were pretty much confined to the practice gym for most of the session. We dared a few shots in front of the football field house and made a mad dash to the main gym while it was raining.

We missed out on some of the photos I was really hoping to get, and the rain limited the equipment I could use, but it’s my job to get the shots in spite of the situation. After all, it’s pretty much impossible to take a bad picture of great subjects like these!

Much thanks to head coach Seneca, and assistants Shelby and Kissa for the help and the invite!
