Tips for Picture Day

Picture Day Tips-Outfits

Help your child select clothing that will compliment their appearance.  You want the focus of the picture to be your child, not loud colors, symbols, or slogans.  Keep jewelry to a minimum for the same reasons.  Also, don’t count on head or torso shots only.  Many photography companies are now including body shots with their products.


Glasses are completely fine to wear for picture day!  Professional photographers have learned how to work some magic when it comes to reducing glare and flash. And besides, if your child wears glasses, they will feel more comfortable wearing them for the photo.


Hair is probably the topic of 70% of the questions I answer for parents about picture day.  Students can technically style their hair any way they’d like so long as it meets school dress code standards, but it’s recommended that you help your child look their best.  Keep it simple but also well thought out.  Leave the crazy, silly hairdos at home, especially in today’s digital world where you can take fun photos any other time you’d like.  Depending on how your child’s hair grows, you might want to consider getting a haircut a week or so ahead of time to allow hair to grow back to a more natural look.

Skip the Makeup

It seems like every year there are girls in younger and younger grades who are wearing makeup as a serious part of their look.  You’d think these kids were going to prom or something!  While it’s cute for little girls to play dress up or take glamour shots, it’s really not necessary for anyone below 6th grade to wear cover up.  What is there even to cover up?!  Imperfections and flaws are PART of a child’s look.  They’re part of the charm and cuteness of being a KID!
