At-Home Picture Day Ideas

Did your child miss out on school picture day this year? Take a photo to remember with these fun at-home picture day ideas.

School looks a lot different this year, to say the least. And one of the most old-fashioned trends is forced to change with the times.

Picture day is a fun way to show your kids getting older. It can be funny, sentimental and sweet. But now parents are being forced to think outside the box in order to capture school in 2020.

Whether it be online or in person, it feels a little strange to celebrate — especially for those at home in virtual school, but the core of the experience hasn’t changed. Your kid is still growing and learning. This year is (hopefully) going to be the only one that looks like this, so you might as well document it in any way you can.

If you’re stuck on ideas for a creative picture day, take inspiration from these parents and photographers.

The best part about being home is spending time with your family, and pets! And what better way to pose for a back to school picture than with your best friend.

Never-ending Photo

2020 feels like five years shoved into one so what better way to document the quarantine blues than with a picture inside a picture inside a picture.
