8 Simple Tips for Your Easter Photography with Your Families



easter photo shooting tips

With spring weather already here and the Easter holiday right around the corner, families are often looking to update their family portraits. You just bought new, matching outfits in adorable pastel colors, so why not document it for the world to see?

While there’s always the option of hiring a professional photographer, some families might opt for saving a few bucks and attempting the photos on their own. A little more patience is required, but it’s not impossible with a few tips and tricks. The best news? All it takes is some good planning. So you’re not an expert photographer. That’s OK. Follow these tips for Easter photography and plan your day out in advance, and you’ll begin to believe you are.

How to Take Easter Photography for Family Portrait?

1. Pick a Good Location

One of the most important decisions to make when taking family portraits is where to take them. Picking a good location can make all the difference in the final result of Easter photography. Outdoor photos are always better and it allows you to choose a location that fits your style. Parks, bridges, farms or other spaces (even urban settings if you’re feeling daring) create interesting backdrops that automatically elevate the quality of your photos. You can opt to take them at home too, in your own backyard, to make the photos more personal.

2. Go at the Right Time of Day

Again, one of the biggest components in capturing great Easter photography is good planning. Photos early in the morning or at dusk lend themselves to the best lighting that doesn’t create unwanted shadows. The downside is that early morning and dusk might be the most difficult times of day to corral kids, but just try to avoid the afternoon hours when the sun is straight overhead. If you’re lucky, you might even get a killer sunset.

3. Take a Ton of Photos

When shooting families, especially kids, clear the camera card and prepare to take more Easter photography than you ever expected. Once you have the tripod set up and you’re in position, set the camera to automatically take ten to 20 photos at intervals of every few seconds. Your favorite photos will probably be the natural expressions in between posed shots that capture your family’s dynamic and personalities.

4. Get Comfortable

It’s fine if your goal is to take the perfect family portrait photo that looks like the model family in the frame you buy at the store. But don’t stress about capturing that photo. Get comfortable with your family and that photo will happen. You can even bring props – the kids’ favorite toys, blankets, etc – to make the photos more authentic to you. Get dressed up and look your best, but don’t worry if the kids get dirty and their outfits are ruined. Those will probably be your favorite photos.

5. Shoot Easter Photography with Settings

This day can be more festive if you put some Easter ornament at your home. Wear an Easter bunny ear and take adorable Easter-themed photos of your children or pets, or capture children’s happy expressions when coloring Easter eggs, recording these delighted moments. To make the most of your shoot, take photos in burst mode to so that you capture as many expressions as possible. Even if some photos would not be taken in a perfect look, they might be hilarious and memorable shots, in the end, these memories are precious for your family.

6. Beauty Retouching

When capturing people’s expressions, try to shoot the best of their faces. If this is challenging, you can use some beauty retouching tools to remove the defaults. Simply adjust the face shape or whiten the teeth, bringing out the radiant ‘you’ and give your family portrait photos makeup. That is very useful for your perfect Easter photography.

You make a good point that the location of the portrait can really affect the look of the picture. My family hasn’t taken a family portrait in a few years, so I’m looking for a photographer to take one for us. I’ll have to find one that is willing to travel to a park or something so we can get a more candid portrait done of our family.

Thank you for pointing out that an important aspect of capturing good photos is planning. My husband and I are wanting to get family pictures taken and need to find the right photographer. I’ll have to do some research and find the best photographer in our area.
