Why Building a School Picture Day Collection is a Great Idea


Blink, and you’ll miss it. Childhood flies by, with your child becoming almost an entirely different person from year to year. Building a school picture day collection helps you capture each and every milestone – so that you have a record of your child to look back on as they transition from pre-K through to senior year. Here’s why it’s a great idea to invest in a physical and digital picture day collection.

Picture Day Builds Family Memories

You vow to remember every moment, but those memories quickly grow fuzzy! Building a school picture day collection means that you’ll have a high-quality snapshot of each year in your child’s life, allowing you to look back with clarity. Print and frame copies, send them to family members and friends, and store digital copies in the cloud so that you always have access to them – even if you move house or are traveling. Digital copies don’t degrade, so you can easily print new ones to replace those damaged by exposure to sunlight or the elements.

As your collection grows and your child passes certain milestones, consider creating new ways to display your photos and celebrate their achievements. Collages, photo albums, light boxes, and digital presentations for milestone birthdays or graduation are all great ways to make the most of your picture day collection – and to keep those cherished memories on display.

Picture Day Lets Kids Be a Star

School pictures aren’t just for parents and grandparents to enjoy. Kids love school picture day, too. While selfies are easy to come by these days, few of us get to enjoy being the center of our very own photo shoot that captures who we are at heart. School picture day gives kids an opportunity to celebrate their own growth and milestones throughout the years, letting them be the star of their own show. Building a school picture day collection gives your child a way to see how they’ve changed and evolved – and to see how their friends or classmates have grown as well. Having those pictures at hand makes it easy to share photos with friends and classmates, to create their own meaningful keepsake that celebrates their childhood, or to reference in future publications and features!
