My lack of picture-taking ability is infamous. I have found new and creative ways to cut off heads and take blurry action shots of all my daughter’s games. Thank goodness the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex has a solution for the poor unfortunate souls like me. My savior is GameDay Photos. Their easy process for sign-up, scheduling, claiming your photos, and viewing and sharing those photos makes the life of any team mom much easier.



The first step in ordering a package is to decide which package that you need. For individual sports such as gymnastics, karate and wrestling the individual package will be your best bet. This package allows you to reserve a photographer for one hour of your competition. Later that day, or the next day if your session was late in the day, you will receive a photo CD as well as a GameDay PhotoPass card with a unique ID printed on the back. The individual CD will contain at least 35 images.


The team package is the ticket for team sports such as baseball, basketball and cheerleading. Like the individual package, the team package includes a photographer at your event for one hour, a photo CD and GameDay PhotoPass card. The minimum number of pictures you will receive with this package is 150. It is also very cost effective. We purchased the team package on our last Disney Sports vacation and split the cost among the team. Our cost ended up being $25/player. Not bad for 329 pictures!


With both packages, reserving your photographer prior to your meet, tournament or competition will save you $10 for the individual package and $20 for the team package.


To reserve a photographer click on the GameDay Photos link above, click Reserve Now and select your event. You will then be sent through a series of screens where you enter your information, select the package you desire and give them information about your team and game schedule. The entire process will take you less than five minutes.


As the infomercials say, “But wait, there’s more!” Remember that GameDay PhotoPass card you received along with your photo CD? Follow the instructions on the back of the card to the PhotoPass website where you will be able to create personalized products such as photo books, calendars and coffee mugs.


“And there’s still more!” How would you like to see your favorite athlete on the cover of “ESPN The Magazine” or your team in a futuristic panoramic shot? Head to the main concourse of the HP Fieldhouse where the amazing Cast Members will create these memories for you on the spot.


Want know the way to a team mom’s heart? Make her life easier and give her awesome pictures of her kids playing the sports they love. This is exactly what GameDay Photos is all about.
