Sports Photography

As a lifetime athlete, I know how consuming athletics can be. From the countless hours of training to the grit and determination needed in competition to the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, sports define the lives of those who participate. Even, and perhaps especially, for those high school and college athletes who don’t go on to compete professionally, it’s important to commemorate that time so that you can always remember why you love your sport.

My seven years as UNC Asheville's lead sports photographer - where I capture every home event as well as photograph teams and individuals for editorial-style posters - and my lifetime of experience as an athlete, allow me to understand each athlete so I can create images capturing their character both on and off the playing field.

Adrian has done work for me on several occasions and has always done an amazing job! She is the ultimate professional, which I value in my business, flexible and always produces. She has a great eye for color and composition and I highly recommend her work. We have used her work for our brochures and for ads! Give her a call, I think you will be very pleased.

Each of my sports photography collections include both:

Sports Action

Sports action photos freeze those memorable moments of determination, sportsmanship, team spirit, and sheer skill so that years down the road you can not only tell the story of how your team won State or Conference, but illustrate the tale with photos to prove it.

Sports Editorial

Sports editorial photos, on the other hand, can be much more stylized, allowing you the chance to show off all your badass skills.

Whether for your team's social media & marketing or for your own personal use, both sports action and sports editorial images are a great way to make custom graphics stand out.

Team Posters

Each team is special, each has its own culture. Make sure you remember each and every one with yearly team photos! Team posters are perfect for locker rooms, athletes' gifts and decorating your competition space.

Celebratory Albums

For individual athletes, sports albums are perfect to showcase your accomplishments and hard work - documenting your statistics and personal bests alongside your photos. For coaches, these are a great way to savor each team's memories and triumphs.


Adrian has an amazing talent. She is a gifted photographer, a magician. For a young person to have this level of expertise in her craft is highly unusual and refreshingly joyful to see. She makes it seamless and effortless. There is no 20 minutes of moving people around for the “perfect” position, she nailed it within seconds, and we were a large group! I am EXTREMELY picky about photographs, I am a real estate agent and I take pictures all of the time, and I know the value of a good picture. I saw in Adrian a professional the moment I saw her set up. Truly a delight! Adrian has my highest admiration!
