Editor’s note: This post first ran in the past, but it was so popular we thought we’d bring it back as an oldie but goody!
My mom still has the photo of me getting on the bus for kindergarten in 1980, blond pig tails and all! Whether your child is heading off to the 2’s in a preschool program or kindergarten, you’re going to want to capture the moment on film. But you know those Pinterest moms today — they’re so creative and inspiring, and they’ve upped the ante when it comes to composing a memorable photograph. Honestly, I want to copy all of these ideas. Love!
Keep it Simple
Alpha Mom printed up a simple kindergarten sign for her daughter to hold. I don’t know what’s cuter…the photo — or the little girl? Either way, what a sweet way to commemorate her big day.
When I Grow Up…
I want to be a policeman! Or, whatever else your little one says. If you can’t pose them next to a chalkboard, put them next to their easle. Ask Anna Mosley blog posted this photo of her friend’s son, and I don’t think it gets sweeter.
Who She Is Right Now
I love the idea of taking a simple photo and superimposing some fun deets about your kid. Check out this one from That’s So Cuegly (above) and The Suburban Mom (below). It’s such a good way to capture little things about your son or daughter that you may not remember a year or two from now.
Mommy Creations has this awesome post about how to pose your child in front of a chalkboard wall for that unforgettable first day of school. How cute is this? (And how ridiculously cute is this baby?)
