I LOVE taking back-to-school pictures on the first day of school. It’s a great way to capture how they grow year after year.
A couple of heads-up for taking back-to-school pictures. I’m sure you’ll take the usual line-up, but try mixing it up a little with a “alright, now, everyone make a CRAZY face” type of picture:
And I don’t know where I got this idea, but each year I take individual pictures of the kids next to a sign that states their year in school – that way looking back I won’t get confused…
You can even get artistic with the pictures – this doesn’t show her face, but shows the grade and her backpack and shoes:
Bright colors make a fun background. This is just made from paper strips. I love the fun jumping for some action:
So grab that camera and go take some pictures!!!
