We have photographed youth sports in New England and NH for 30+ years and have learned quite a bit. Below are just a few things we have discovered throughout the years:
Always start with the individual photos first. Someone is always late when it comes to Sports Photos. Team photo is last.
Team photos: we do not Photoshop someone into the team photo if they can not make it. The result looks fake and the players who were at the team photo will suffer with a poor looking team photo.
Retakes: New England Studio takes 2-3 photos of every player from little league teams up to high school sports photos. I can not remember the last time someone wanted a retake…it simply does not happen.
Post the schedules on Social Media and website PLUS give everyone photo envelopes with the date/time stamped on photo envelope.

We are slowly getting back to normal. Our plan is to have the photos for Swanzey Cal Ripken baseball on Saturday May 1, 2021 in the Maintenance garage. More details for the sports pictures will follow soon.
For years now, New England Studio has been photographing these baseball pictures in the maintenance garage on the Green Screen. This is the most logical way since the league is so large and we have no control over the weather.
