Go to a baseball game- creative date idea

When the very talented Lydia of Photography Hill offers to take some date pictures, you jump on that. Because there are so many moments of dates we just never seem to capture on our own. Like the moments we stop to share a joke together.

Or the eating of hot dogs. That takes two hands.

Or the moment when Jacob’s tall frame and long arms beat out everyone else to get the t-shirt from the t-shirt gun.

Or the fact that we’re not big PDA people, but sometime those little moments happen. 
Summer Date Idea: Go to a baseball game

There are the normal shots we take of every date, standing in front of the location and smiling. She obliged and got those for us too.

But I think we often hire photographers for only those posed moments. I’m seeing the light and realizing that the pictures I want on my wall in my house are those candid moments- the moments when our future son hits his first baseball at a little league game. The birthday party where our daughter is dressed as a princess and acts like one. Us holding hands roller skating instead of smiling in front of the same water fountain most people in our area have a picture smiling posed in front of. Lydia is a talented portrait photographer, but she’s more than that, she’s a moments photographer who likes to get people in their natural element. We were lucky enough to have her come with us on a series of dates for an entire month. And I’m so pleased with the results of how our personalities and dates were captured in a light we, and our readers, don’t typically see.

Like how we both instinctively raise our hands and start singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the 7th Inning Stretch.

Or the goofiness that is the Jacob Whiting. Like when he says “We could probably fit both of us in this shirt.” And then before I can look at what he’s doing, a shirt is going over my head and I’m questioning if I’m being abducted in a moment of utter uncertainty. Nope, just Jacob being hilarious and getting a shirt on both of us at once.

And me laughing so hard I cry.

And luckily Lydia was ready to capture it all. And Jacob was ready to twirl my hair, proud of his accomplishment of assaulting with a t-shirt.

And this my friends, is a picture I will always remember and treasure. The one with the beautiful lines of chairs behind us while everyone else was leaving the stadium. The one where my husband made me laugh so hard I cried. The one where we reminded ourselves that XL t-shirts that have “WE back the D-backs” were clearly designed for two people to create a memory together in.

Although Photography Hill provided the pictures for this date, and several others, the opinions are my own. She’s an amazing photographer that will capture emotion and moments in ways you never knew possible. If you are a Phoenix reader, you should seriously check Lydia’s stuff out. Because the world needs more two-person shirt wearing, inside joke capturing, and 7th Inning Stretch singing.

  2. Kristine@thefoleyfam says:

    Love your pics! We LOVE attending MLB games and are so overdue, considering we haven't been to one since I was preggers with Maggie over 4 years ago!

  3. These pictures are so sweet! I love the idea of having a “date photographer” to capture all of those sweet memories.

  4. Stefany T says:

    I absolutely love that you had a photographer come and capture these moments. It is so wonderful that you have some candid things in there and things you would never get to have on your own.

  5. Jenna Brussee says:

    Awww! You two are super cute. This is a fun date idea. There is something so American about going to a baseball game. Definitely something I try to do at least once a year.

  6. Esther Ju*Lee says:

    these photos are so fun!! even though we both used to do photography for clients.. we barely ever get photos of the both of us. there's a lot of stuff that you can't capture during a session though because of how limited you are on time.. so it's great if you can have someone who's willing to come hang out on day to day events. 🙂 makes me want to call up my photog friends to hang out more often but they all live in diff cities!!

  7. Kayli Schattner says:

    I SO SO agree about capturing candid moments– they are so much better (most of the time) then the usual smiling in front of location photos. 🙂 these were all great!

    So cool that you had a photographer come with to take pictures! Dbacks games are always so much fun to go to and it is great to get out of the heat 🙂

  12. Aww this is so fun!! I would really love to do something like this with a photographer there to capture the little moments.

  13. Chelsea Olivia says:
