Picture Day

For the second year in a row, New England Sports Photo (NESP) is proud to be Rutland Youth Soccer's Picture Day vendor on Saturday, September 7th. Photos will be taken during each team’s scheduled time at Memorial Field.  Please see your player’s scheduled time here:

Please arrive to the photo area a 5- 10 minutes earlier than scheduled.

To Pre-Pay online please visit:

Pre-orders help move the line along faster vs. paying onsite. Please print your online receipt and hand it to the photographer.   The above access code is accessible only through the end of the day on Picture Day.  This helps ensure that parents are not making a purchase without confirming that an individual photo was taken.  Purchases for multiple children in one credit card transaction can be done by setting up an account, otherwise, the “quick pay” option can be used.

Your child’s individual access code will be sent out  3-4 weeks after Picture Day. All orders taken after Picture Day are subject to increased prices.

Paying on-site:

The photographer will have extra order forms. 
Check and cash will be accepted.
Credit card information taken on-site will be processed off-site.
