Back-to-School Photo Ideas
by Jen White
Every August, I LOVE to go to the grocery store.
The reason? School supplies!
I’m a school supply junkie. Even with my kids out of school, I still cannot resist the purchase of a 24 cent box of Crayola Crayons.
In fact, the whole idea of returning to learning with fresh supplies and a giddy spirit warms my heart.
Whether it warms your heart, or completely stresses you out, going back to school is something you will want to thoroughly document with photos and journaling.
Here’s a list of fabulous blogposts to get you inspired to start capturing memories.

10 First Day of School Photo Ideas
Parent Society has some fun ideas for adding a bit of creativity to your back-to-school poses. Their website is riddled with advertisements (sad face), but if you can put up with that, their ideas are worth the minor annoyance.
First Day of School Picture Ideas
This blogpost features a few creative ideas that are super simple to implement. I’m all about simple.
Here are some additional ideas for back to school photos:
- Take a snapshot of your student’s tall stack of text books. My kids were all classically homeschooled, so our book stacks were always REALLY high (and impressive, wink).
- Scan or photograph their signature. It’s fun to see how their signature changes over the school year and over the years to come.
- Ask your student a list of basic questions and journal their answers in a blogpost or on a scrapbook page. Like . . . What’s your favorite food? Who is your best friend? What do you want to be when you grow up?
- Always photograph their backpack. Backpacks are a BIG deal!
So how about you?
