Hockey Parents, this week is Dorchester Dragons Photo Day! Please note we are on TWO WEEK NIGHTS this year.. THIS Wed, Nov 23rd or Thu, Nov 24th between 5:30pm and 8:30pm.  Come anytime during that time frame.

Once again, this season, we will be shooting INDIVIDUAL photos for all players (just like last year) in the NORTH Lobby of the arena.  Your player is to come dressed in UPPER BODY gear, meaning they should be in jersey, gloves, stick and shoulder pads and pants.  No need for skates or helmets.  Goalies can bring pads to PLACE on their legs to give the illusion that they are wearing them … but we only see the top part!

Parents will NEED to complete an Order Form even if they do not buy anything AND get their photo taken!  This helps us track photos and ensure each player on the team is in the photo!  It will be important that parents indicate the AGE, TEAM and COACH to allow us to place the player on the correct team. For those ordering individual photos, please fill out the Order Form and indicate the pose and background they wish for individual photo purchases. You can find the Order Form attached or there will be forms available during Photo Day.

As far as team photos go, we will produce one FREE 5x7 team photo for each player photographed.  We also photograph coaches too … so the number of heads in the team photo will be the number of prints produced.  Some teams have helpers too … so they will also need to be photographed.


Important to note, this year's team photos will be created using the individual photos!  So, even if you are not interested in individuals to order, please have a photo taken so you are included in the team photo! 



The photo schedule will be as follows: 



5:30 – U5

5:45 – U6

Once again, there is flexibility with the schedule and it is also perfectly fine for parents with multiple hockey players to bring them at the same time to help them be more efficient for families! Just be sure to complete the Order Form (indicate the AGE, TEAM and COACH), so we can match up your players with their teams. You also have an opportunity to do sibling photos, which look great if parents have more than one hockey player!


As most of our teams have Jersey Carriers, please ensure you bring and hand out your preferred jersey (white vs red) for the team to slip on prior to photos!


For those that are unable to make Dragons Photo Days, there will be a make-up date scheduled at the studio on another date, yet to be determined.


Bring your amazing smiles! If need you to contact me, please do so through the website under my name: here
