I don’t know about you, but I love Back to School Photo Booth prints to help me commemorate those first day of school photos I like to take.

I know some of you out there have already sent your kids back to school, but it’s still over 2 weeks away for me. On the first day, I like to do a little photo shoot with the kids each year, and you can even do it after school starts. In ten years from now looking back, you’ll never know!

Back to School Photo Booth

I’m excited to continue with the photo booth series, and introduce to you Back to School Photo Booth Printables!


The amazing Kiki from Kiki and Company did it again, I love her cute creations!  My kids had fun taking pictures!


This picture below cracks me up because my younger daughter didn’t understand why there was an “A” on the paper, she thought it needed to be her name letter. I had to explain to her that in school, you want an “A!”  It means you’ve done a great job! I love how she is pointing to the grade as if she actually gets what it means.  She was such a ham in this little photo shoot. (I’ll share more later when school starts).


I actually put blue painters tape on the glasses at the last minute, so they are not reflected in the printables.


My kids had so much fun (especially the girls) posing for these pictures. The boys tolerate it, and smile BIG because they know the “session” goes much faster that way.

The blue lockers are actually a backdrop I ordered off of Very Jane, through Bubblegum Backdrops. I thought it worked out perfect for these pictures!

{Edited to add: 2 years later,  didn’t realize that the “Class of” signs were specific to that year!  You can still print out all of the other photo booth prints, but here are 3 options for the year sign:

1) Simply slice off the “class of” or “1st grade” and use a mini version of the sign or 2) My friend has a chalkboard school year set, or  3) I shared a new set of First day of school signs.

    So cute! I love C’s outfit! I just wish there was a sign for Preschool – Class of 2028!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      oh shoot, no preschool;( I thought the outfit was fun and funky like her!

  2. Dana says:

    This is adorable! What size backdrop did you get?


  3. I love love love these, even though we live in Scotland!! But our school years in elementary school are called Primary 1, 2, 3 etc. My girls are going into Primary 3 and Primary 6 – which sadly don’t quite equate with Grade 3 and Grade 6. But I’ll use those signs anyway as there are none for us 🙂

  4. Nicole says:

    I love the pics! The backdrop is a perfect addition. The colors are fab!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      You’re the sweetest, Nicole, thank you!!

  5. Diana says:

    Such a cute idea, love the props. Your kids really know how to have fun with the camera!

  6. Your kiddos are so cute!!! And what a great idea to not stress about when you take the school pics as long as you take them. These are the cutest printables too!!!

  7. These are adorable. My oldest one is starting kinder this year and I’m excited for all of this fun back to school stuff to come into my life! Pinned!

  8. Dawn says:

    Hi! I love these photos, any chance of updated years? My nephew is starting kinder this year and I love to use schoolbus and class of 2028! I’m not good with PS! Thank you!

  9. Melody says:

    Awww what a fantastic idea :)Thank you for sharing. I am going to use them for my daughter and link you back. x

    These are all so cute and thanks for sharing! I was going to print the “Class of” props for our two boys, but I think the grades are incorrect for the years. For example, our grandson will be an 8th grader this year and will graduate in the Class of 2021, not 2019. Our exchange student will be a junior this year and will graduate in 2018, not 2016.

  11. Jennifer says:

    Could you update printables for K-6th 2029-2023 class of?

  12. My kids start school in two weeks, which is why this photo booth activity with printable school supplies looks really fun to me. I especially love the backdrop that you got to go with all of the props. I definitely might consider doing that! However, I might want to make this even more fun by making it myself and having it look more colorful.

  13. Megan says:

    The graduation years are incorrect for the 2016-2017 school year 🙁

    • Kristen Duke says:

      yes, they are, I posted a link on the post to a place that has them!

  14. Brian says:

    This is really cute! It looks like your kids had a lot of fun with this. Perfect for the school year!
