10 Back-to-School Photo Ideas

One of my favorite times of the year is when my news feed starts to fill with pics of kids headed back to school! Love it! And those who know me here know that I run a photography business on the side, so yeah, maybe I’m a little partial to pics, but there’s nothing wrong with that…right? I think not! So, with that in mind, here are 10 Back-to-School photo ideas that I’ve come across recently!

The Portrayal of Pictures

I’ve received so many nice comments from my readers about the pictures I use here on the blog. Now, let me set the record straight and tell you that SOME of those pics are NOT mine. (However, when I use a picture that belongs to someone else, I always make sure I give them proper credit! I would want the same done for me!)

And the reason why I’m so particular about that is that I run a photography business on the side…or in my free time…errr…what’s free time, again? So this taking pictures for the blog thing is a little bit new to me.

However, I am ALWAYS a work in progress, that’s for sure!

So today, I just wanted to share a few of the kinds of pictures that I normally take with you all. I hope you enjoy! (And in case you want to check out THAT website, CLICK HERE! The name of my business is Portray Photography & OS.)
