Easter is a perfect holiday for a family photo shoot. Spring has officially arrived and the flowers are blooming! Whether you’re a professional photographer or a parent who likes to snap pictures of your children, you just need to follow a few tips to capture meaningful memories.
Coloring eggs is a fun activity for the whole family. It’s also the perfect chance for you to grab your DSLR from Beachcamera.com and capture the perfect Easter photo! If you’re going for Easter morning candid shots, just hang out in the background while your little ones go on the hunt for the Easter Bunny’s hidden treasures.
If you’re planning a photoshoot for your toddler, there’s no better time for it than Easter. Stores are full of tiny Easter-themed outfits and props which will make your adorable baby look even cuter. Create a true basket full of love with your baby tucked inside an Easter basket. Fill with a soft, pastel colored blanket and dress your baby in an alternating pastel color. Lay her on top of the blanket, and snap away with your point and shoot camera! You might also add Easter trinkets to the basket, such as a chocolate or stuffed bunny rabbit and plastic Easter eggs.
The concept might be a bit old fashioned. But what would Easter be without a baby girl in an elegant bonnet or a baby boy wearing a hat with bunny ears?
This time of the year, when nature is blooming, use the opportunity to shoot majestic photos with flowers. Babies and toddlers in the middle of daffodil fields, or family picnics in the middle of a field of tulips. Nothing announces the arrival of Easter and spring better than the sweet aroma and vibrant colors of spring flowers.
Become the Egg
Pregnant bellies make perfect eggs! Have a friend decorate your belly using body paints in pretty pastels, and then let her click away with her mirrorless camera from Beachcamera.com. Use a brightly colored tablecloth as the backdrop and paint the due date of your baby on the bottom of your belly or on a sign you can hold during the shoot.
Big Ears Himself
Real or stuffed, a rabbit has to be present in your Easter photoshoot!
To Catch a Rabbit
Try this new twist on your bunny photos. Use a real, crochet or toy carrot dangling from a branch or toy fishing pole. Don’t have access to a live bunny? Dress up a younger sibling in bunny ears to pose as the catch of the day!
The Chicks Have It
Fluffy, soft and irresistible. Visit a farm for the sweetest photos with those adorable birds.
Don’t forget to include your furry family members in the photoshoot. After all, they are part of the family!
Just remember to capture the joy of the holiday and you will have wonderful Easter memories to last a lifetime!
