Crazy Back To School Photos Are Just One Option
If your creativity isn’t up to the task of coming up with hilarious photos, you can take a different approach.
How can you announce to the world that it’s back to school time without having such crazy photos? While fun photos are awesome, here are a few other great ways that you can have back-to-school photo fun without going all out.
15. Group Hugs All-Around
I’ve always loved the first day of school better than the last day of school. Firsts are the best because they are beginnings – Jenny Han
Maybe your crew is actually a little sad about going back to school. Take this time to get picture proof that everyone does love each other.
Group hug it out (like the Tanners in Full House) and snap that picture for evidence later.
16. Have Them Stand Next to a Ruler to Measure Height
While they might seem short to you, they’re kind of a big deal.
Get their first day of school photos taken as proof of just how big they really were at the start of the year compared to the end of the year. You’ll be amazed at the difference!
17. Peace Out, Mom
Maybe your kids are excited, maybe they aren’t…but having them throw you the deuces as they’re getting on the bus just might be one of the most simple (and cutest) back-to-school photo ideas, ever.
No tears, just peace, and love. See ya at 3, Mom!
18. Chalk It Out On The Sidewalk
Those school expenses do add up eventually. Why not save the money on buying something and instead head out to your driveway and use sidewalk chalk to write the grade that they’re going into. Then, have your child pose and get your picture taken. Easy as that!
Final Thoughts on Back to School Pictures
These are just a few simple back-to-school photo ideas that anyone can do! Go for adorable and sweet…or go for crazy and funny.
Either way is a great memory. But the funny, crazy photos will tell a story and bring a smile to your face for years to come.
