Am I a terrible mom if I have never taken a super creative first day of school photos?
I don’t think so.

I love these word bubble mini-questionaires from the blog Just Us Four.
Christina Dieselberg’s post that goes along with this fabulous idea, a way to commemorate the first and last first day of school, is a very touching piece.
Love this collection of simple chalkboards from Smile and Wave.
Get creative and add some text to a first day of school photo, just like The Suburban Mom did.
I adore Whimsy Love’s reality check, first day of school photo session…’cause it isn’t always easy to get the kids to strike a pose.
Mom Always Finds Out made a pretty creative picture frame prop that can be easily reused year after year.
There truly are a lot of great ideas and inspiration for first day of school photos. On the first day of school we always take a picture of our girls sitting on the front steps of our house. It’s a pretty simple photo, but it has been amazing to watch them grow from kindergarten to grades 2 and 5! I also love taking pictures of their backpacks…seeing how their style changes over the years. We have also taken some great candid pictures of the girls walking to school together, I think those are my favourites.
Do you have a first day of school photo tradition?
Don’t forget the most important part of the first day of school photo taking tradition…sharing your pics on social media!
