Trinity Episcopal School gym teacher Renee Stroman is surrounded by kindergartners as they attack her with ice cream, syrup, whipped cream and other sundae toppings outside the school. Stroman challenged the students that if they raised more than $2,200 for the American Heart Association, she would let them make her into a human sundae. The students raised $10,000.

  1. I love this photo because it's weird. It's not every day that you get to see a person being covered in ice cream sundae toppings, even in journalism. Photographically I love the fullness of the frame. Every inch has something to discover yet the girl in the blue sweater really stands out. - Angeli Wright
  2. Covering a story about Evelyn Miller celebrating her 103rd birthday, Miller didn't seem to fully comprehend the special occasion. Cake and punch were served and lots of small talk were exchanged and then Miller leaned in and kissed her daughter. - Frank Tilley
  3. The flock of birds hovering over a barren rice field was a pleasant surprise. I pretty much felt like the assignment was a wrap but I wanted to look at a field. During the harvest, rice fields are a sea of golden stalks, but months after the harvest only a dry bed of top soil was visible. Suddenly, a dark cloud of birds formed a swarm, moving back and forth. The sound of their wings was as interesting as the movement of the flock. - Frank Tilley
  4. Allie Gonzales is one of those people so full of life, when you meet them you are inspired by them. Following her around for a day to see her love of cheerleading was a lot of fun. I really liked this photo because of her expression and that it is just a nice moment of her hanging out with her friends. - Kathleen Duncan
  5. I picked this photo because I love the light. One of my co-workers told me it reminded him of a Baroque painting. The Victoria Community Center is an interesting place to take photographs. You are either in the dark, your subject has ugly backlighting or you can manage to get the perfect contrast between light and shadow. I also love the look of determination on her face as she corrals her pig into the judging ring. - Angeli Wright

  7. I love the photo of Zach Oracion and his parents because of the love and pride you can see on his parent's faces. Also, the pure joy on Zach's face as he walks down the field. It was so great to be able to photograph the night Zach got to run a play for the first time.- Kathleen Duncan
  8. As a photographer, I find it impossible to resist a good silhouette. It's beginning to become a bit of a problem for the variety of my work. I picked this photo because it is a twist on the classic silhouette that I am so fond of because you get some silhouette and home detail. I also love the color palette that came from the clouded over sky, it really makes the photo. - Angeli Wright
  9. It's hard to beat the emotion in this photo. I love it because it is simple, funny and touching all at the same time. - Angeli Wright
  10. This is the type of photo that I always to try take when I shoot baseball or softball (or in this case, little league). A player has just run home to score and the second runner made the tag at home plate just in time before the catcher got the ball to tag him out. I like this photo because I didn't have to tell you that, it's all right there, which I think is the aim in sports photography. - Angeli Wright
  11. Avery Bartay was such a vibrant young lady. The whole time I was taking pictures she was talking and moving and expressing herself with full energy and vigor. I love this photo of her because to me it feels like such a quiet personal moment, which was so out of ordinary for her. - Kathleen Duncan
  12. At the rivalry game between East and West there were a lot of emotional moments. This photo was one of my favorites for the colors, the sun and the shapes of the band against the bleachers. - Kathleen Duncan
  13. I like the image from Our Lady of Victory because it was the student's spontaneous outburst of affection for their teacher that impressed me. Scenes like this are fleeting with only seconds to respond. - Frank Tilley
