Easter Photo Tips

Photo Tips for Easter

There are so many different photo opportunities at Easter! Here is a list of some photo opps you will not want to miss!


Shopping for the Perfect Easter outfits
Coloring Easter Eggs (try a closeup of those little hands)
Children preparing the treat for the bunny
Excited little ones searching for their Easter Basket
The Egg Hunt
Treats spilling out of Easter Baskets
Children with the Easter Bunny (you can find a giant bunny at most shopping malls)
Easter Morning Outfits ( I love taking these outside in front of the daffodils)
Family Group Photos while everyone is dressed up

Using Your Timer
For your family group photos you might want to consider setting up your camera with the timer. Be sure to read the directions and do a few practice shots before Easter morning. In our community there are several beautifully decorated areas where we like to go for our Easter Morning photo shoots! I have been known to prop my camer up on the car and set the timer for some great family photos!

Use the sunlight!
We like to take our Easter photos outside...afterall we have been cooped up all winter and Easter is the perfect time for beautiful spring photos! Make sure the sun is not directly in front of you...shining in eyes. You also do not want the sun directly behind you or you will have a nice big brite glare in your photo. At midday, the sun is overhead and casts unpleasant facial shadows so be sure to use the camera's flash to lighten harsh facial shadows. Early and late in the day, position your subject so the sun strikes only one side of the face. With one side of the face brightly lit and the other side in shadow, you will create a dramatic effect. To reduce the shadow effect, use fill flash.

If you choose to take inside pictures remember that your flash will only work up to 10ft away. That is basically 3 big steps. Much farther than that and your flash will not work properly.

I hope that you get lots of GREAT Easter photos! Stay tuned for some great Easter layouts!
