Since the weather looks to be rainy, Saturday's portion of the fundraiser will be held indoors. We will be taking pictures in front of the gym, with neutral backgrounds- utilizing the natural light from the large windows. For those of you hesitant about what this might look like, I am attaching a sample of images from the last time we had rainy weather. I promise that we will get some great shots! I consider myself pretty picky, and I always love how these pictures come out!

For Saturday- it is important that you park and enter at the rear of the school. Please park at the bus circle and follow the covered path to the back of the building. Entrance to the bus circle is off of Hillsborough road. We will have the door propped open for easy access. Feel free to text me should you have issues. My cell number is 919.923.2707. I am adding a map to help clarify directions.

For Sunday, Please park in the faculty lot at the front of the school. We will take pictures in the wooded lot adjacent to the lot, in front of the water tower.
