Back to school is upon us and so that means your feed is going to be filled with smiling little faces getting ready to start the new year. I love to document my girls first day of school. Its so special to see where they start and their excitement for all they are going to learn. Plus its super fun to look back on at the end of the year to see how much they have grown. Today I am sharing some of my blogging friends and their adorable first day of school photo ideas to inspire you this back to school season.


Oh how I love back to school photo ideas using chalk. You can really get creative and showcase your Childs favorite things. I love the creative ideas these moms had when using chalk.

I love using letter boards for first day of school pictures. You can add all the info about what your little one loves and what they want to be when they grow up. Here are some of my favorite first day of school photo ideas using letter boards.

I feel like this year the new trend is pennants. I see them everywhere and it makes me so happy because it is the cutest. This is a new first stay of photo idea that I hope sticks around.
