How to Prepare Your Easter Picture Printables
Because you want these to look the brightest and boldest they can be, we usually suggest sending them to a printing service and requesting cardstock. The colors come back so bright, and the stronger paper makes them perfect for props!
Once you have your Easter printables ready, cut out each item. We tried to squish as many different objects as we could on to the page and ended up with over 20 options for you and your family!
Once everything is cut, start taping your sticks onto the back of each printable prop. You can use popsicle sticks, but my personal favorite is using skewers. They are slimmer, so they are easily hidden in a photo, plus they are longer, which helps with prop placement. I also like using packing tape for its durability.
I think the Easter basket is so cute, so I wanted to point out that it can be done a couple of different ways:
- Cut the whole thing out, including the center. There is an egg in the middle of this one that you could then add to a separate stick. Cutting out the center will allow you to use it as part of your other Easter backdrop items by hanging it on things or holding it through the handle.
- Or, you could just cut around the outside and use a pen blade to cut horizontally along the top of the basket. This will allow you to use the egg in the center as part of the Easter background of the basket. Simply slide other props through the slit and build a beautiful basket for your Easter pictures.
Funny Easter Pictures
Now that you have your props all ready, it’s time for those cute Easter pictures! Anyone who has ever tried to take photos with children knows that it can be … trying! The kids are over it faster than you can click your shutter. That’s where the photo props come in!
Simply set up your Easter background—inside or outside, and use the following tips to help your pictures turn out best.
Tips for Outdoor Photography
- Take photos when there is enough natural light outside.
- Find a spot that has indirect lighting. Avoid areas of dappled shade, which lets the light filter through the tree leaves. This adds weird shade spots to the photo.
- Check the ground before sitting. You don’t want your Easter clothes to get damp from any remaining dew!
Tips for Indoor Photography
- Find a window that has sunlight coming in and step about 3 feet back. This would be the perfect spot to take your picture!
- If you want a blank backdrop, try hanging up a solid-color sheet or tablecloth to make your own “photo booth.” Of course, you can add anything to these easy backdrops to make them fit your needs.
The biggest tip we have? KEEP IT FUN! If you want funny Easter pictures, you can’t be annoyed at each other. Play with the props, enjoy your time, and remember these are for memories, not a magazine spread.
