First Day of School Pictures Ideas

Photos are the very best way to save memories. Think about the holiday’s…. you get everyone dressed up and you take a picture every year, send out the holiday cards to all of your family and friends!

Isn’t it fun to look back on those every year and see how everyone has changed (we have some great Holiday Card Photo Ideas to share too!)

When it comes to the first day of school, I love the idea of doing the same picture every year to truly see how much our kids change from year to year!!
