Guest Post: Sugar Bee Crafts!

Today, we are lucky to have a visit from Mandy from Sugar Bee Crafts to talk about photography! Thanks so much for visiting, Mandy!!

She's taken on a plethora of amazing projects, such as this birthday board:

This ingenious plywood rug:

And how cool is this T-shirt skirt?


Hi Everyone!!   I am Mandy from Sugar Bee Crafts and I'm excited to be stopping by for all of these back-to-school tutorials.
Sugar Bee Crafts: sewing, recipes, crafts, photo tips, and more!

I have 4 kiddos and love to craft and blog (obviously!) - - I feel like if I can do something, then you can too!!

I LOVE taking back-to-school pictures on the first day of school.  If your kiddos have already headed back to school, and you missed the photo opportunity, take some anyways.  A picture from 2 weeks into school is better than no picture at all!

A couple of heads-up for taking back-to-school pictures.  I'm sure you'll take the usual line-up, but try mixing it up a little with a "alright, now, everyone make a CRAZY face" type of picture:
And I don't know where I got this idea, but each year I take individual pictures of the kids next to a sign that states their year in school - that way looking back I won't get confused...

You can even get artistic with the pictures - this doesn't show her face, but shows the grade and her backpack and shoes:

Bright colors make a fun background.  This is just made from paper strips.  I love the fun jumping for some action:
So grab that camera and go take some pictures!!!

Hope to see you over at - it's awesome over there :)
