One of my favorite traditions this time of year (like most moms, I'm sure) is the First Day of School photo. Even though this year’s "back to school” might seem very different from years past, I think it’s still important we stick to it. Pinterest abounds with inspiration, but no matter how the picture turns out, it's the act of capturing that first day, the newest fresh start...seeing the smiles that say "Bring it on, I'm ready!" that makes my heart feel all those warm fuzzy feels. Our children don’t stop growing because a pandemic happened. Life and joy and favorite traditions will never be canceled.
I know things can get rushed, or busy...that first day, first week, first month of school can be a blur (without adding the pandemic mess in it), but I encourage you to just snap a photo. It doesn't have to be perfectly styles, amazingly creative, or involve a week of prep work. Just take the picture, because in 20 years you won't care how it turned out. You'll just be so glad you have that memory forever!
Shown here is the Back to School photo of my youngest from last year. School starts after Labor Day for us...all virtual for the first 9 weeks...I can't wait to snap their photos again💓💓
