Back to School Photo Tips

I can't believe it is that time of year again!
Back to School!
I have some photo tips and examples to make
the first of school memories last forever!

I don't claim to have it all together when it comes
to photography but, I do have a few tips
that I have used in the past.

1. When it comes to the child, try to capture more than just a face.
A few examples:
Backpack at feet
Apple in Hand
New Shoes

2.  Photograph the child's new surrounds
A few examples:
Name on desk
Class Schedule
Snap shot of a stack of books

3.  Before school starts take a few shots from home
A few examples:
The alarm clock time
First day of school breakfast
Brushing teeth or hair
Packing lunch

Photo colleges are a great way to put the photos together.
I use Pic Monkey to edit my photos and make my colleges.

Here is a little sample of my back to school photos from last year
with a few examples I used above!

Hope everyone has a great back to school!

School is right around the corner and there is
lots of cute inspiration for making lots of wonderful
items for the kids and teachers!

By the way, what did we do before Pinterest?

Anyway, I woke up to this awesome idea this morning in my news feed!
Bakerella has done it again!!
Check out these Pencil Push Up Pops!

I am going to make these for the kiddos for sure!
How fun!
