Photography Tips: Back-to-School

This might be too late for some of you, but you can always redo the first day pictures - why not!
A couple of heads-up for taking back-to-school pictures.  I'm sure you'll take the usual line-up, but try mixing it up a little with a "alright, now, everyone make a CRAZY face" type of picture:

And I don't know where I got this idea, but each year I take individual pictures of the kids next to a sign that states their year in school - that way looking back I won't get confused...
Notice the weird face on my son in the picture above - he said after I took a few "hey mom, didn't I look like an evil scientist in those?" - yes, yes you did, thanks.  Here he was back in his smile-cute-for-the-camera days:

that first photo, just great , made me smile :)

I love the first photo. I have a similar shot of my youngest boy from last year. LOL So much fun!

Oh, I LOVE that first photo!!!

I did signs like that when my son was a baby till his first year. What a great idea to do it for their school days! Thanks!

Thanks for the tips. My son will be starting soon. I like the grade signs.

Thanks for the tips, I'll have to remember when my son goes back to school in just over a week, and my daughter is starting school for the first time too!

Thank you for the tip... I will give that a try.
Have a great weekend.

Well, that just shows his personality, doesn't it? I love the sign idea. With 3 kids under the age of 4, I'll need help to keep them all straight!

Thank you for linking up to my Friday link party! I hope to see you back next week!

I've seen first day of school pictures before but hadn't seen to add the year in a picture frame in the photot. Great idea!

Cute kids and clever photos! I wish I'd done the pic with school year sign, over the years with four kids it's hard to remember what is what. Tho pulling out all the school pics when the kids are home and listening to the discussion/arguments/joking/memories is alot of fun.
