I'm always looking for new ways to keep the first day of school stress free. So, we tried something new this year for our first day of school pictures and I loved it!
Here's the secret:
Go over to the school in the evening (we went the day before school started, but really if you do it within the first week or two of school, you are totally good!).
Taking pictures at this time of day is perfect. The lighting was nice, no people were at the school, I wasn't in a hurry, and no kids were embarrassed by mom taking so many pictures! The best part is that I love our first day of school pictures. Way better than my pictures from previous years.
Even if you've already started school, it's not too late. Go over to the school and take more pictures. You'll be glad you did. Don't forget to get some goofy ones too. :)
