Easy Last Day of School Photo Opp

Easy Last Day of School #photoopp for your kids.

Another school year is over.  Phew!  Today is my kids’ last day of school before summer break and I wanted to do a quick photo to include in their scrapbooks.  (Which I am totally getting caught up on this summer – really!)

I found this simple idea on Pinterest.  All you have to do is have your child hold a 5×7 picture of their very first day of school ever – kindergarten, preschool, etc.  It’s a great way to document how much they have changed over the years.

So I had to dig out the kindergarten pictures.  It would have been better to have the photos in a frame, but I didn’t think of that until after I took the pictures and the kids were on their way to school.

When it’s 6:50 a.m. and I am not quite awake yet, I don’t take the best pictures 🙂 So I used PicMonkey and their special effects to jazz the pictures up a bit.

The older they are, the more amazing the difference.  My son is a sophomore and seeing how much he has grown and changed since that kindergarten picture was just amazing.

So tell me… Do you take a last day of school photo?

    What a cute idea! I’ve also seen where a child is photographed in front of the same door every year and then they hold their first photo on their last day of high school!

      At our old house, we used to photograph the kids in front of the tree in our front yard each year on the first and last days of school.

    That is such a fun idea! I wish I would’ve done this with my kids as they were growing up.

    Aww such a cute idea, my only regret is, it seems I have not enough pictures of my kids growing up. Those pictures looks amazing!
