These suggestions are fun ways to add some zest to your back to school photos and come up with something memorable and unusual. Take a peek.
Fun First Day of School Photo Ideas:
1. The Chalkboard Pose (or whiteboard)
Nothing says back to school time like a chalkboard. For this photo idea, have your child hold a chalkboard in their hands or display it next to them. On it, write the child’s name, year, and the answer to a question such as what they want to learn this year or what they are excited about this year. Display the chalkboard in the picture with them as a fun prop.
2. The School Building Pose
For this photo, you will need a little cooperation from the school. For this pose, take a child’s desk and chair (take your own if you have one) and set it outside in front of the school. Take a photo of your child in the desk, in front of the school. It is ideal to show the name of the school in the picture. Try this pose before school starts so you aren’t dealing with a crowd of kids.
3. The Backside Post
Take a photo of your child walking away from the camera, showing their backside and backpack. This is a cute way to literally show them going to school and offers a different perspective.
4. Add text with Picmonkey
Picmonkey.com is a free photo editing service that you can use to add text to your pictures if you wish. Add the child’s name, school name, school year, and other info you wish in fun colors and various fonts. Visit PicMonkey and see what edits you can make to add some fun to your picture.
5. The Sidewalk Chalk Pose
On a portion of the sidewalk, have your child write their name and/or grade on the cement in large and colorful letters. Have them lie next to the sidewalk text and then snap your photo. This pose is so fun and whimsical and lets the child even get a little creative.
As you can see, there are so many fun and creative ways to snap some back to school photos of your child. Give these ideas a go and see what sort of pictures you can come up with! You are sure to come up with something creative, fun, and of course frugal. Say cheese!
