Editorial Photography

September 8th, 2018

I just noticed a tweet from ESPN, referring to when 13 year old Natalie Gilbert, singing the national anthem at a Trail Blazers game, suddenly froze, forgetting the lyrics. In one of the classiest moves all time, Blazers head coach Maurice Cheeks came onto the floor and help Natalie finish the song.

I had the pleasure of photographing Natalie a few months later and once again in 2010.
