School picture day can always be a challenge. Smiles are awkward, hair is askew from having just played a sport, children often have food on their face or clothing, and the shots that are captured are the best the photographer could get. When I was in third grade, I had just cut my own hair, so my mom had to scramble the night before picture day to figure out a hairstyle that covered up my handiwork!
Most of us have years of school portraits from our childhood, and many of us have continued the tradition of keeping all of our own children’s portraits. These photos aren’t always the best representation of us at our best, so why do we keep them in the first place? We think we should because they represent interests and academic history during those formative school years. Nevertheless, we don’t know what to do with them and are afraid to do anything, so those photos end up crammed in a storage bin taking up room in our attic or garage. Most people do not look back at those memories because they are cluttered and jumbled…until they find Picture This Organized.
