Capture the perfect Easter photos of your family with these darling prop ideas! They’re so fresh and springtime-y, we can’t even believe it! Plus they’re super cheap and easy to use. Not to mention the fact that props are a fun way to add personality and color to your spring family pictures. Here are 11 props that are perfect for Springtime sessions…

Spring Photography Prop Ideas

Rain Boot Props for Easter Photos

  • Rain Boots- Don’t let the rain keep you indoors. Put some rain boots on the kids and snap some pictures of them splashing in the puddles. It’s a darling and inexpensive way to add a HUGE touch of personality to your cute Easter pictures. Plus, it will keep your little ones a bit dryer on those wet and rainy days. You might consider having them jump in puddles, walk next to a stream, or even line up multiple kiddos and get a shot of just their boots! How cute would that be?!

Umbrella Props for Easter Photos

  • Umbrella-  Bright, fun umbrellas are a great way to add a pop of color to your spring family pictures. They come in so different colors and patterns that you’re sure to find one that speaks to you! Plus, we’ve never seen a kid who doesn’t like playing with an umbrella- we sure do! Try having your little ones spin them, peek out from behind, or stand underneath. The opportunitie are endless! You could even get the whole family in on the fun and create some wet and wild Easter photos where every member of the family is standing under their own umbrella. It would be the most unique set of spring family pictures we’ve ever seen!

Cute Easter Pictures with Parasols

 

Dandelion Spring Photography

  • Dandelions-  Looking for a floral element that’s totally free?! Let the kids pick some dandelions and capture the seeds blowing in the wind! Or find some fresher, yellow ones for the perfect pop of color and whimsy. Try getting a few Easter photos of your little one running through a field of dandelions or lying surrounded by them. We promise, this will be a shot you’ll treasure forever!

Easter Family Pictures with Bubbles

  • Bubbles- Bubbles are great for getting genuine smiles out of the kids and add a fun element to photos. Plus, they’re inexpensive and small so you don’t have to worry about carting big props around! Get a close-up shot of your little one blowing a stream of bubbles from the wand or blow some yourself and capture a pic of them running or spinning through them! Whichever pose you choose, the bubbles will work to create a truly magical element.

Spring Family Pictures with a Bike

  • Bike-  If your family loves riding bikes together, why not add one to your family photo shoot to personalize it a little? The best part is that you probably already have one sitting in your garage! If not, ask to borrow a neighbor’s. Consider adding a basket to the front (temporarily of course) and filling it with fresh fruit or flowers. Make the bike the central focus of your photo and have the family gather around it.

Easter Photos Using a Chair

  • Chair-  Chairs are great props for adding color and providing different posing options. We love using more antique looking ones but you could really get away with anything! Consider tying a balloon on the rungs for added effect. (Sources {A} Jessica Downey Photography {B} Lovelock & Co {C} Drew B Photography)

Photography Backdrops and Easter Picture Ideas

  • Indoor Swing – You could dress up an indoor swing in so many fun ways for Spring! Just add florals, fabric, or ribbon- the opportunities are endless! I love the old fashioned look of these flowers.
  • Raindrops–   These raindrops and clouds make the perfect backdrop and would be perfect to pair with an umbrella and rain boots as props.
  • Fabric Garland –  If you love shabby chic, here’s a fun and easy backdrop idea- just use scraps of fun fabric. You could also throw in a small antique chair for an extra dose of Easter charm.
  • Textured Wall and Balloons – Find a uniquely textured wall (concrete, brick, etc.) Add some variety with balloons and you are good to go!
  • Flowers and Balloons – Nothing says spring more than flowers! Add some unique vases for texture and balloons for a new pop of color. Use fresh or faux- it really doesn’t matter with this setup!
