Making back-to-school photos memorable

Pose your child alongside traditional school items such as books, crayons and backpacks.

Shoot a photo of your child at their desk or with their new teacher.

Have your child hold a sign with their grade and year noted.

Take a cameo of your child with ample negative space. Use Photoshop to write the child’s name, age and grade in that space.

Get low — take photos at kids’ eye level.

Trib Talk: Teenagers and sleep

It’s tough to get adolescents to roll out of bed in the morning, but most schools start the day at the crack of dawn. Join us for a live video chat Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. to discuss school start times and how to balance the physical needs of sleepy teens with after school jobs, homework, extracurriculars and the educational establishment.
