First day of school is right around the corner here in Maine, here are some cute ideas for parents!
The first day of school is such a milestone for any parent and a day that should be captured, not only for yourself and the grandparents but for your kids too.
Below are some really cute, out-of-the-box ideas that you can use to make your child’s first day of school photos memorable and unique.
- Get a shot of the outfit. You’ve spent the time choosing the perfect outfit for this day so why not hang it up somewhere and get a shot of it before they get dressed? Lay the outfit out on your child’s bed and take a shot from above or place it on a cute hanger and hang it against the door.
- Use a blackboard. Incorporate a cute blackboard with a frame into the photos. Fill the blackboard with facts such as the date, their age or even what they want to be when they grow up. Easels also work really well for this and will give you more space to be creative. Get your child to draw themselves on their first day of school and include this in your photo.
- Show their progress. While taking a picture on the first day of school is a must, make a point of taking a photo on the last day of the school year too. You’ll be amazed at how much your child has changed when you compare the two photos. Another cute idea is to get your kid to pose with their first day of school photo from the previous year to show their progress.
By having fun and making this moment a big deal for your children, you will instill confidence in them and prepare them for the day and year ahead.
