DIY Easter Photoshoot at Home 

I started a tradition of getting Easter photos done every year of my children. This way I know I will have at least one photo of both my kiddos. Back in December I mentioned about doing all of our family photos at home until the boys get older. The main reason being because they hate to sit still, especially for a stranger. I have more time to play around with them and the patience to have them sit and try to make them laugh. I kept our Easter photos fairly simple this year. I made the backdrop out of burlap string and pieces of cut fabric. 


I used three different styles of material that I had in my fabric drawers. I cut each strip approximately the same length and height.

After cutting several strips of each fabric, I tied them to the burlap rope in a consecutive order. The end result turned out great for our photo shoot.


For the remaining props, I kept them fairly simple. I didn’t want a lot of distractions for the kids. I use a big mason jar Vase I had and added flowers. Next I added two Easter baskets and lots of plastic eggs.


Overall I spent $3 on this photoshoot. I bought the plastic eggs and both Easter baskets. The remaining  props were made from items that I already had at home. So be creative and use stuff around your house if at all possible. You don’t have to spend a fortune to create a beautiful photo. The best photos are the expressions of the people in them and the memories you will cherish while creating them.

Overall I was extremely excited with the end results. The photos turned out great and the kids had a lot of fun with the shoot.






Keep the photoshoot simple so that you and your kiddos can actually enjoy it. Don’t stress for the perfect photo. The fun ones are always the perfect ones.
