She’s a professional soccer player. She’s strong. She’s fierce. She’s confident. And she shows that the force is female.
I was so lucky to be able to do a photo session with Casey this winter around the neighborhood. As she was open to anything, we went to a bunch of different spots to create this ultimate photography session!
You see, Casey is the embodiment of hard work, drive, and perseverance. After being sidelined by multiple different knee injuries in her career, she thought she might be done playing the game she so loved. But instead of hanging up the cleats, she pushed. She put in the work. And now she’s playing soccer professionally for the Chicago Red Stars, and for the U.S. Women’s National Team as a defender.
It’s her hard work, combined with her passion and determination, that have brought her to where she is today. She didn’t have an easy path, options didn’t just fall into her lap – she worked tirelessly to get to where she is today. She pushed. She fell. And she got back up, stronger and more determined than ever. Casey Short is a force to be reckoned with, and clearly shows that force is female.
Please enjoy some of my favorites from this session together. And if you get the chance, tune in to the U.S. Women’s National Team games, and the Red Stars, to show this amazing woman some support!
