Easter is one of the best holidays to photograph. Spring provides a beautiful backdrop, everyone is dressed in their Easter finest, there are bright colors everywhere you look and there are lots of opportunities for active shots! Here are some tips to capture your Easter photos that will last a lifetime!
1. Plan Around the Moments that are Important to You
Think about the key events in your family’s Easter celebration and plan a moment to capture each one. Every family is different! If Easter brunch is the highlight, then plan to snap a photo of your family gathered around the brunch. Other common Easter celebrations include: egg decorating, Easter dinner, hunting for Easter eggs, attending Church, and gathering with friends and family. Try to think ahead and have your camera or phone ready to snap a photo!
2. Capture Candid Moments
Between the key events of your Easter celebration, keep an eye out for special candid moments you would like to capture. Some special moments can include: painting eggs, dressing up for the celebration, opening Easter eggs and playing with (or eating) the surprises inside. These candid moments can become special memories that you look back on years later!
3. Include the Little Things
Take photos of the little things that make up your Easter celebration. After decorating eggs, place the eggs in the grass or in a basket and take a picture of the collective artwork! Or, have each person hold the egg they decorated and snap a portrait of them with their work of art! Keep an eye out for spring flowers, Easter decorations, traditional foods, and other little things that make up your Easter celebration. Get a close-up photo of those items for a more dynamic feel. If you make a collage or photo book to share, these photos will round out the story of your holiday celebration.
4. A Perfect Opportunity for a Family Portrait
When the whole family is dressed up for Easter, take the opportunity to set up a family portrait! Remember to choose a well-lit spot in your home or backyard. This will help ensure that everyone can be seen in the photo. Remember to have fun with the photo! Mix things up by making silly faces, jumping, and trying out different poses for the camera.
