Keep outfits simple.
Picture day ensembles should be comfy, simple, and of course — something they love so they’re free to be themselves. Remember, light colors favor darker complexions while dark colors favor lighter complexions and try to keep patterns to a minimum. Lastly, pack an extra outfit in case of (clothing) emergency.
Pack “safe” lunches.
Picture day times can be unpredictable. Time slots may fall after lunchtime so pack a meal that’s smile-friendly and mess-free.
Prep, don’t pose!
It’s difficult to smile on command, especially for kiddos. Take some practice snapshots at home. Don’t force stiff, unnatural poses. Give kids posture freedom and their smile will be picture-perfect.
