After the crazy haze that is summer break, you might be rushing your kids off to their first day of school with a sense of relief that you can finally have some down time. Or, on the other hand, you might be a mess of tears and reluctance as you watch your baby zoom off to their first real day of school without you. No matter where you fall on the school-year-emotion-spectrum, it's always a good idea to have some back to school photo ideas in your mind before their big day. Even though your emotions might become more or less complicated over the years, you'll always have documentation of how adorably ready your little one was for their first day of school.
Although my kids aren't quite old enough for school yet (ie. they're still toddlers), after becoming a mother, I can already imagine the feeling of watching your little bundle of joy (whose grown up quite a bit) waltzing off to their first day of pre-school, kindergarten, or even high school, for that matter.
Whether you're having a hard time letting go or are overly-ready for a kid-free house, or are maybe feeling a strange mix of the two, having documentation of each back-to-school day will be a memory you'll always love.
