Picture Perfect Tips For Picture Day

Some kids are naturals in front of a camera and love taking school pictures, but others, especially the younger set, may have a few reservations. To help calm your child’s nerves so that they can take their best school picture, here are some school picture day tips and a run down of what they can expect.

  1. Their teacher will line up the class and bring them to the Picture Day set up area, usually a gym or unused hallway.school picture day tips
  2. There will be large backgrounds (they look like big sheets hanging on poles), big bright lights and cameras sitting on tripods.
  3. Also, there will be photographers waiting there with a smile to greet them.
  4. The photographer will seat them on a stool  or have them stand facing the camera, and help guide them to get into the proper position.
  5. Tell your child to remember to sit or stand up straight and smile naturally, as if they were happy to see you!
  6. The photographer will take the picture, and the bright lights will flash.
  7. After reviewing the picture on their laptop, the photographer will excuse the child to their teacher.
