    Kellie Anfosso
    Kellie started to develop a love of sports in 1968, at age 5 while listening to her father announce high school football and basketball games. Her journey into sports photography started when she videotaped her son playing sports. She bought her first Canon 50D DSLR to capture her son playing basketball without blur. She started taking photos for the paper in 2009 and added more sports as friends asked her to capture their kids in action. Her sport photography style has been to tell the story, show the passion and to get kids into local papers and national magazines. Her photos have been in USA Wrestling in 2018 and 2022. Her photos were featured on the 2017 Texas UIL Wrestling State Championship Program.
    She worked with the Mckinney Magazine and had photos of commissioned products, sports, landscapes, events, and wildlife. She enjoys shooting beautiful sunsets, old buildings, wildlife, candid shots of people, and of course sports. She loves to pass on her knowledge and passion for photography.

While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch.
