Hippity, hoppity, hooray! The season of pastels, pink tulips, and marshmallow Peeps® has arrived. Time to dress up the family in their Sunday best and hit the photo studio for the timeworn tradition of Easter pictures…or is it? Instead of shelling out a few hundred dollars at the local mall for a posed picture that only vaguely represents your family’s awesome range of personalities, set up an Easter photo shoot at your home with a few cute Easter props! And as easy as they are to transport, these Easter photo props can be taken to any fun location!
Easter Picture Setting Ideas:
- Front Porch
- Local Playground or Park
- Rural Field of Grass or Flowers
- Botanical Garden
Easter Picture Prop #1: Easter Pillows
Hold it, hug it, set it in the background – prop an Easter pillow up anywhere!
Easter Picture Prop #2: Easter Pennant Banner
Group your family together. Have the people on the ends hold the pennant banner so it drapes across the front of the picture. Let your pennant banner tell your story or send a holiday greeting!
Easter Picture Prop #3: Stylish Easter Eggs
Scatter them on the ground or sprinkle them in your Easter basket for colorful details that playfully hint at the Easter season.
Easter Picture Prop #4: Chicks & Eggs
Which came first: the chicken or the egg? When it comes to Easter pictures, it doesn’t really matter! Let these cuties graze in the background of your photo for pops of spring color.
Easter Picture Prop #5: Easter Sign
Like the pennant banner, you can hold an Easter sign to wish your friends and family “Happy Easter” and send a holiday greeting. (P.S. This works for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas too!)
Easter Picture Prop #6: Monogram Letter
Make is personal with a single monogram letter to represent your family’s last name. For couples, use two monogram letters and an ampersand. Have each person hold the letter of their first name. So cute!
Easter Picture Prop #7: Spring Wreath
Hang a spring wreath over the artwork or mirror above your mantel, or on the fence in your backyard!
Easter Picture Prop #8: Faux Flowers
Allergic to the pollen of fresh flowers or simply want their beauty to last longer? Set vases of faux flowers on either side of your photo set-up to add balance and color.
Easter Picture Prop #9: Easter Bunnies
Baskets and bunnies and bows—oh my! With their pink button noses and bright white ears, bunnies are the key to creating an Easter-friendly photo shoot. Use them in the background or set them on your living room mantel for hippity hoppity good vibes.
Easter Picture Prop #10: You and Your Family!
And the best prop for your Easter pictures? You and your family (and maybe a few of these precious little chicks)! Whether you’re dressed up or dressed down, hop on into the picture and give the camera your springiest smile.
