I’m a full time teacher when I’m not blogging. One of the unexpected roles that comes along with teaching is that of a hair and clothing stylist when it comes to school photos. I’m constantly asked to fix fancy hairdos and pull magic tricks to clean clothes that have become dirty throughout the day. I can’t claim any special skills but, nevertheless, parents ask me questions every year like I’m some kind of Nat Geo photographer or something. I decided to be one step ahead of the questions this year and do some research on the FAQs I hear most often. Here are super simple tips for school picture day.
Help your child select clothing that will compliment their appearance. You want the focus of the picture to be your child, not loud colors, symbols, or slogans. Keep jewelry to a minimum for the same reasons. Also, don’t count on head or torso shots only. Many photography companies are now including body shots with their products. Photo source.
