I don’t know about your kids, but my daughter loves the first day of school! She talks about it for weeks and can hardly wait for it to arrive. When that day finally comes, she is a little bit apprehensive—but mainly excited! I snap a photo of her each year before the first day of school, and it is so fun to look back on those pictures to see how she has changed.
If you’re taking back to school photos, here are some shots you might want to capture:
*shopping for back to school supplies
*new school clothes and supplies (it is fun to look back on the clothing trends!)
*your child waiting at the bus stop or climbing on the bus
*your child standing outside the classroom or with the teacher
Remember, your children may be anxious about the first day of school, so don’t stress them out even more by insisting on perfect photos! Be sure to have your camera ready so you don’t have to fumble around at the last minute. Even better, take photos at the END of the day, when they’ve gotten over their anxieties.
Good luck! erin t.
