Team Photos on Shutterfly
Kelly O'Sullivan and Teresa Smith are taking on the Shutterfly account, now that Josh (and Kimmy) Romine have graduated from the program. This is the picture sharing site we use as a team. We invite and encourage any parent who enjoys taking pictures to do so, and to share them on our Vista page. ALL parents may view pictures from every meet and download directly from the site. They can also create and order end of season albums.
For new families, you will need to request access to our team site before you can participate. This is for the privacy of our runners and families. You will be approved as soon as your email is verified with the team roster. Here is the link to our Shutterfly site: vistanation.shutterfly.com
We rely on parents to take pictures of different athletes throughout the season and upload their best shots to our Vista album. We want to include pictures of ALL athletes by the end of the season. If you are taking pictures at the meets, please try to delete blurry, distant or duplicate pictures before uploading. If you do upload, please check to see if a meet album has already been created and upload your pictures there. If you don't see a meet album yet, then go ahead and create one, following the format of other album titles.
What works best in the albums:
* Close up racing shots
* Group pictures after the race
* Team pictures (during awards, after with trophies)
* Pictures of parents, siblings and "fans"
Thank you for taking the time to help document the season. Please contact Kelly or Teresa with any questions whatsoever.
