Back to school season is upon us. Parents are planning for school transportation and are preparing their children with school supplies and new school wardrobes. In addition to the first day of school, many students will also take back to school photos. These photo sessions are an important memory for parents. The photograph packages can be expensive and will be looked back onto for years. Make sure your child is ready with the following tips.
Schedule a haircut a couple days before
Prepare your child for their back to school photos with a fresh haircut. However, you want to avoid same day haircuts in case you or your child does not like the style. Give it a couple of days to get used to the new look and to find the best way to style the new haircut. If the first day of school and school photographs are weeks apart, schedule a touch up a couple of days before the photograph day. Let your child have a say in the new haircut as the photos will also be important to them.
Shop for a back to school photo outfit
Back to school preparations often include back to school shopping. However, make it a point to choose an outfit specifically for photographs. Let your child choose their favorite designer leather belts or a fancy pair of crocodile skin shoes. Although many school photographs only capture the shoulders and up, an entire new outfit can make the child feel confident come photograph day. The same accessories, including the designer leather belts and artisan shoes can be used for special events also.
Practice at home
Sometimes, photographs can make children nervous. They may be worried about pleasing you or feel uncomfortable with a stranger telling them how to sit and when to smile at the camera. Practicing at home can make them feel more comfortable and can provide you with better photos. Practice by using the same outfit, including the designer leather belts and full attire. Let your child practice smile options in the mirror. Also, remind them that you will be happy with any photographs of them.
Get the most out of the new outfit
Clothing items like designer leather belts and leather shoes can be expensive. In fact, some might find it difficult to justify the expensive cost for a single photo shoot or one day back to school. However, if you take care of your items, you can use these same exotic belts and exotic mens boots for upcoming school dances, awards ceremonies, or even weddings. Shoe trees are recommended to keep your shoes healthy. They help retain the shape of the shoe and will dry them out faster. There are 2 types of tree shoes, plastic and wooden. Also, remember to rotate your shoes at least once every other day. Because footwear materials compress when you walk, rotating them will give your shoes time to spring back to normal.
Psychology studies reveal that first impressions are formed within 7 to 17 seconds of meeting someone, 55% of a person?s opinion is determined by physical appearance. As back to school and back to school photographs approach, ensure that your child is prepared with a fancy new outfit. A new outfit will increase their confidence and will leave you with better school photographs to look back on.
