Can you believe it’s back to school time already?! The summer flew by and now we are getting ready for the next season of the year— the first days of school. Whether your child is starting daycare for the first time or is a big 5th grader, you have to take a back-to-school photo! This milestone is so important and is one that you and your children will look back on for many years. We are here to share our favorite first day of school photo tips + tricks!
1+ Use fun photo props! Have you child hold some books, put on his or her new backpack, or hold an apple for the fun [and sometimes cheesy] back to school photo!

2+ Have you child hold up a chalkboard! You don’t even need to write anything on it. Just have them hold the sign and add a “First day of _____ grade” with the Little Nugget app! No need to worry about chalkboard smudges!
3+ Choose a fun location! Try taking your back-to-school photo in front of the bus or at the bus stop. What about in front of the school doors? Or if you are allowed in their classroom on the first day, a photo in their new desk would be adorable!

4+ Make your photos consistent year-over-year to make comparisons fun. We love taking a First Day o School and a Last Day of School photo!

6+ Add important school details with the Little Nugget app– like the teacher’s name + what your child wants to be when they grow up!

6+ Print out your photos! Celebrate this huge milestone in your child’s life by printing out your Little Nugget design right through the app. Hang it on the fridge to show them how proud you are. Your Little Nugget photos will become your most cherished keepsakes.
