Easter is the perfect time to capture your kids enjoying lots of fun spring activities such as getting outdoors, discovering the first blooms and of course, hunting for eggs.
Most of the baby Easter picture ideas above don’t require much more than some simple props and your smartphone.
Don’t forget to snap candids
Keep your camera handy when you are doing Easter crafts or going for walks in the spring. There are so many fantastic opportunities for cute photos.

Create a spring vibe
If the flowers aren’t quite blooming yet, you can use artificial lavender or daffodils or potted plants to get the same effects, especially if you just want to use them in the background.
Use accessories such as birdhouses, stuffed toys like chicks and rabbits as well as carrots and eggs for cheap and easy photo props.
