Wait, wait, wait — it's already August? Where did the time go?! Reality is probably just now setting in: Back-to-school is just around the corner. And if you don't already have an annual tradition of taking first-day photos, this year is the perfect time to start.
First-day-of-school photos are some of the best mementos. Not only do you get to see your kids grow and mature year after year, but these pics are also a great opportunity to show off a bit of the ol' parental creativity. No longer do you have to resort to the typical, basic "have the kid hold up a piece of paper that says the grade they're entering" photo. Instead, why not DIY a border with sidewalk chalk, use balloons order a chalkboard sign from Etsy?
Ahead, we've gathered 15 of our favorite first-day photo ideas. Pin a few, get inspired and kick off the school year in style.
