Valentine’s Day just flew by! Can you believe it’s already time to plan for Easter baby photos!
Whether your baby is a newborn or nearly a toddler, Easter baby photos are a must. As a photographer and mom, I find it more and more important to document my child’s life. Time flies by so quickly. Looking back over the years of photos brings such fond memories, deepening our love for our littles. Who knew such love could deepen year after year?
First, here’s a tip. Let’s avoid these photos this year:
Instead, hire a local photographer at a reasonable rate. It’s absolutely worth the investment! Schedule this soon as Easter is approaching and their calendars book up fast. Be sure you explain to them your hopes for this session, and that it is Easter-themed. Ask them what type of props they have to offer and if they have any ideas for what you can purchase beforehand to be ready for the best Easter baby photos ever.
Here are some ideas for you!
1. The bunny baby
This costume can get a little warm, so put it on right before you snap pictures and take it off right after.
2. Naked baby with bunny ears
Cute doesn’t even begin to describe this picture! You don’t need a full body shot to get the “money shot”.
(Soft pastel colors are perfect for Easter!)
3. Toddler with a real bunny
As long as your child isn’t afraid, let a real bunny hop into the picture…literally!
4. Baby in matching knit outfit holding a carrot
Cute and simple, we love this idea because it’s one that shouldn’t make your baby fuss.
5. Toddler/baby session outside with eggs, basket, Easter outfit
If the weather allows, bring that photo shoot outside and get plenty of Easter props.
6. Sunday best
Dressed up babies are the best because they look like little adults, but much cuter!
7. “My 1st Easter”
If you think your baby will sit still for this one, this is a great idea for those Easter photos!
8. Baby in a basket of eggs
This is the cutest basket of eggs we’ve ever seen, wouldn’t you agree? It’s a simple idea with loads of cuteness!
9. Naked baby with ears and eggs
Although your baby will probably hate this picture when he gets older, you can love it now!
(The naked baby photos never get old!)
10. Baby in a giant, half-cracked egg
Look what just hatched! Your baby will likely think this is a game and will be all smiles for your pictures.
(Baby is sure to have a blast!)
Whatever you do, don’t skip or skimp on the Easter photos! Most of all, have fun! Remember, the time flies by so fast.
