We regularly feature photo submissions from our Images of Edina photo contest. This month, we asked Molly Andresen, a photographer with a small business focused on families and weddings, to tell us about her photo titled “Baseball High Five.”
Edina Magazine: Where was the photo taken?
Molly Andresen: This photo was taken in Eden Prairie (Forest Hills Park) at a baseball game between Edina and EP.
EDN: What inspired the shot?
MA: It was a perfect summer evening with beautiful light, so I had my camera out and was taking photos. I watched the game for a good play to happen and then tried to capture the kids celebrating together through the fence!
EDN: What’s your favorite thing about this image?
MA: I love that I caught my son and one of his best friends celebrating together and caught genuine excitement on my son’s face. I also love how the fence catches the light.
EDN: What prompted you to submit your photo to Images of Edina?
MA: I loved that it showed kids playing and celebrating Edina sports together, and the way my son is angled it showed off his Edina jersey and helmet!
EDN: What tips would you offer others considering submitting their photos to contests like ours?
MA: Bring your camera everywhere with you! That way, you’re always ready to catch a great moment in our community.
