The end of summer is the bittersweetest part of the year for me. I love spending the summer months with my kids, but let’s be honest. Until the end of August, I’ll be itching for them to come back so that I can have a little time to myself. But before they make their way back, I have to do one thing: take a delightful photo of the start of school!
This is my way of capturing exactly who they were in that moment and so much fun looking back at the end of the year and seeing how much they have grown!

Below are our all-time favorite photo ideas, from the classic front door photo to an adorable recreation of one of the most emotional Disney moments ever!
1. Take the classic front door photo
Let your little ones put on their adorable little backpack and stand on your doorstep for the classic “I’m on my way to school!” Photo. Bonus points if you add a letterboard!
2. Put the Art Easel to good use
If you have an art easel in your house, this is a delightful way to write down some things about your little one, like their current favorite things and what they’d like to be when they grow up.

It’s always so fun asking kids what they’d like to be when they grow up, and it often changes so you’ll want to document the answers!
