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.
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.
