School starts this week and we're as excited as anyone else! Capturing the excitement of the first day is a important ritual for most families. Soon our facebook feeds will be flooded with smiling kiddos with fresh haircuts and new backpacks. Read below with some of our best tips for getting a great back-to-school pic!
Great photos don't happen if you're stressed, running behind and unprepared. If you want to capture a great photo, begin the night before!
The Big Day
We used paper templates to paint our wood sign. We uploaded our templates for anyone who wants to download and print paper ones like the ones below. Completely free: [here]
Remember the purpose
Yes, we all want a perfect picture. Remember the bigger purpose of this day. This day is about celebrating and documenting the excitement of a new year. Grab the photos but not at the expense of ACTUALLY enjoying your morning together and experiencing the excitement.
But maybe your morning just isn't going well. Scrap the photo ops and be present in the moment. Second-day of school pics are just as good!
