5 Easy Ideas for Back to School Photos!
1. Back to school shopping
One of the best( or worst) parts of back to school is the shopping! Do a photo shoot of your kids shopping for supplies, or surrounded by supplies and books, so getting fitted for uniforms.
2. First day of school outfits/uniforms
The first day of school outfits are classic back to school photos that you will want to look back on year after year. Make sure that you include siblings if the kids have them.
3. If allowed, inside the classroom
Nothing says back to school like a photo of the inside of your child’s classroom. Get a photo of them at their desk, with their teacher, or even with their friends!
4. The school bus!
Nothing says school like a yellow school bus. If your child rides the bus, try to get a photo of them hanging out the window or getting on or off the bus. If your child doesn’t catch the bus, you can still get a photo of your kid with the bus in the background. 🙂
5. Use simple props like apples, books, school supplies and do a stylized photo shoot.
If you’ve got a child who is nervous or even if YOU are anxious about the first day of school, sometimes a stylized photo shoot in your home is a great idea. You can call it a dry run! Get lots of great props like books, apples, chalkboard and go for it!
