When we pulled into the Spring Training Baseball Fields at Camelback Ranch, we asked to be directed to the player’s lot. We pinched each other to make sure we weren’t dreaming as we pulled up to the White Sox clubhouse. We had been looking forward to this day for weeks, and there was a big part of us that couldn’t believe it was actually happening!
Our shoot with the White Sox franchise was amazing! We worked with their retail merchandising group to photograph their new apparel and novelty items for the 2018 season. It was a perfect mix of styling apparel and working with the players and their families. We started the day styling men’s, women’s and children’s clothing along with fun items like baseballs, gloves and miniature bats! Some of our favorites by far were the super soft hoodies and the cowl neck sweatshirts!
We transitioned to even more fun as the players finished up their spring training game against the Cincinnati Reds (which they won 14-12!) and started meeting up with their families outside of the locker room. The families picked their favorite clothing items and modeled them for us. We had so much fun with some of the little ones who were hamming it up in front of our lenses!
We have SO many fun images that we can’t wait to deliver to their merchandising team! Take a look through some of our favorites below! Can you spot some of their star players?? Even though we live far from Chicago, we’re pretty sure there’s a little bit of White Sox fan in us after the amazing day we had with them!
