Creative Ideas for Easter Photos

Suit up! Shop around for an Easter Bunny outfit, or put together one by using a white onesie or shirt and shorts, Easter Bunny ears headband, and body paint or markers to create whiskers and a nose (works better on older kids who aren’t as prone to wipe it off with their hands!) (My mom sewed a suit for me when my oldest was two; she wears it every single Easter as she hunts for eggs!) Fill a basket with Easter goodies and snap your children holding the basket or seated with the basket in their lap. Have a toddler and a baby? Let the toddler be the Easter Bunny and put the newborn in the basket mentioned above; then have the toddler “deliver” items, such as plastic eggs and candy, to the newborn in the basket during the shoot.

Tips for Good Photos

  • If shooting outside, try to do it in the earlier morning or later evening hours, when the sun is not so strong it washes out your subject.
  • Put the sun behind you when you can. This will keep your subject bright.
  • Take pictures just after the kids wake and eat for the day or right after naptime, when they are most rested and ready to cooperate.
  • Take a lot of pictures. You never know what’s going to look good and what’s not. You can always delete those that don’t turn out; but you probably won’t be able to go back and reshoot if you didn’t take enough.
