24 Hilarious First Day of School Photo Fails

First day of school

It’s that time of year again. Kids are going back to school and parents near and far are lining up to capture the oh-so-coveted first day of school photo.

If we’re being honest, it’s not for the memories, it’s for Facebook. Nonetheless, every year we line our kiddos up on the front porch, dressed to the nines with their brand new backpacks and lunch boxes in hand to document the end of summer and the start to a new school year.
