The first day of school – the anticipation is in the air. Parents are probably feeling excited, yet emotional at the thought of their little ones starting another year of school, or maybe their first year! Just the thought of my daughter going to pre-school soon makes me want to cry. I have seen so many fun ideas to take memorable back to school photos. Some are from professional photographers, but most are taken by “momtographers” like myself, right in the comfort of their homes before their child heads out the door for school. I am so inspired by these. I am definitely going to start a fun back to school photo tradition with my daughter when she starts pre-school. I hope to keep it up and take a new photo each year to compare. Here are a few of our favorite ideas:
Books, apples, backpacks, etc make for great props for fun back to school photos

Write captions, age, year, grade, quotes, milestones, etc. It’s a real way to capture details about their personality from that year.

Take photos in front of the school prior to school starting, maybe a couple days before. You’ll have the place to yourself and will be able to get some great shots.

Write the details about the grade, school year, etc on a notebook and use as a prop.

Ok, where can I get these? LOVE this idea! “Stop crying Mom” will be the perfect caption for me.

Take a picture with an open background and add in details on your photo editing or collage app/software. Interview them, ask them their likes, dislikes, etc. It will be so fun to compare each year and see how they have changed.

I just love pics with a frame held over the face. What a fun idea. It could say “First Day of School” or be more specific about which grade.

The perfect prop for back to school! Use a little one to just write in the grade, or get a big one and write in more stats.
