Three Ways To Make Sure You Get A Quality School Picture Of Your Child This Year

It’s that time of year again.  It is nearing the time that school will start and school pictures will be taken.  Most moms know that getting a quality school picture is a difficult, if not impossible feat.  Yet, we purchase them anyways because we love our child and want to capture those moments in time.  But there are things that you can do to make sure you get a quality school picture of your child this year.

The first thing you can do is choose their clothing correctly for picture day.  Dressing your child in clothing with a busy pattern will not photograph well.  It is best to choose clothing items that are solid colors for picture day.  There will be no pattern to compete with your child and all of the focus will be on their beautiful face.

Practice with your child on how to smile for their school picture.  How many times have you got the school picture proofs to cringe when you see their cheesy grin?  You can avoid that by having them practice their smile and coaching them to have a more natural smile for their picture.

All moms know that they would get a better school picture of their child if only they were there to make sure that the school picture was taken correctly.  We moms would like to be there to double check that everything is in its proper place before the photo is taken.  Since that is not a possibility, you can opt for the next best thing.  Write a note to photographer or to the teacher with concerns that you might have.  For example, you can remind them to please make sure your little girl’s bow is not crooked or that your child isn’t looking over their glasses at the camera.

Following these tips will give you a much better chance of getting a quality school picture of your child.
