Got your child’s school pictures notification in the mail yet? Since you can’t be there, you’ve got to prep your child (even if they are in Pre-K).We spoke to Mona Blonder of Award Photographers in Old Bethpage, for some tips to make things go super smooth.
1. To have your child smiling at school tell them to think of something funny when the photographer taking their picture.
2. Make sure their hair is cut a week or two before (so it will have time to grow in and fall nicely). It might be a good idea to tuck a comb into their backpack to fix their hair (just for picture day, of course).
3. For girls — think neat. Keep their hair out of their face — a grippy hair clip or a headband will work perfectly. This is not the time to try a new elaborate ‘do.
4. Since you don’t know if the picture time will be before or after lunch, pack some wipes so they can make sure their face is clean.
We’d also like to add, pack another shirt or outfit, just in case they spill something on the shirt they’re wearing.
