Yes, taking back to school photos of your kids can actually be easy! And fun! Here's a secret: you don't have to take the photos on the actual first day of school! Trying to get the perfect photo + an already hectic day = a stressful morning. Please don't feel guilty about staging a photo the week before. It's okay! I took these a full TWO WEEKS before our official first day. I'm sure I'll still bring the camera to the bus stop, but now the pressure is off:)
I love all of these cute poses. You probably already have everything you need to do these at home: chalk, a notebook and marker, books, pencils, an apple, a table and chair and (of course) a camera. A step stool helps too, to get the camera's perspective a little bit higher. I promise these were easy to do. The only preparation required was gathering the props and drawing on the driveway for a minute with some chalk. The hardest part was convincing my kids to pose for me!
Hi there! I'm Emily and I'm thrilled that you stopped by!! I hope you can relax and read along, while I share a little bit about my work, life and love of photography. I hope you find some inspiration here to light your own life and share your own story!
