50 Easter Photoshoot Ideas for Baby

Easter Photoshoot Ideas for Newborn Babies

Document your baby’s first Easter with these adorable newborn poses. Newborn photography can be easier to get cute photos of than older babies because they can’t crawl away! Take advantage of their newborn sleepiness if the timing works out for the Easter holiday.

1. You can’t go wrong with a simple fuzzy hat and diaper cover. This little bunny outfit paired with a plush carrot is sweet and perfect for one of those cute easter photos.

2. Grab your own crochet bunny outfit and carrot for your new baby and set up this easy display to take photos in your own home. Sometimes it’s easier to just stay home and try to do it yourself with all the craziness a new baby can bring.

3. Colorful easter eggs and a basket quickly transform a plain white onesie into an Easter photo shoot for your baby. Take advantage of how they sleep so much at this stage and try some cute poses in portrait mode.

6. Swaddle your baby and purchase one of these digital backgrounds to easily try and do your own Easter newborn photos at home. I love the subtly of the blues and greens of this background as opposed to the traditional multi-colored eggs. You can grab the background here on Etsy!

7. An adorable yellow outfit will easily make your baby look more like a chick or even a tiny dinosaur when you pair it with a giant egg. This is another digital background that can help elevate your own swaddle photos at home.

8. Sometimes newborn photos can’t be taken right away due to stress, medical issues, or more. Use this holiday as an opportunity to take those first photos of your little one if you haven’t gotten to yet!  A baby in a metal bucket can easily be turned into an Easter theme with some bunny ears and pretty eggs scattered on the ground.

9. Chicks and chickens are another spring animal that make for amazing Easter photos. I love this chicken hat and the blanket that makes it look like this newborn is resting in a nest.

10. If you want to take your own photos and don’t have a bunch of props you can download this simple digital background and transform your living room or bedroom into an Easter photo studio.

13. Grab an Easter basket and a chocolate bunny for a cute setup for your little sweet tooth. This is a better idea for older babies or toddlers who can handle having some candy! But chocolate makes all kids happy, so you’re bound to get some candid photos while they’re keeping still (even if they get a bit messy).

Sometimes you don’t have the means or mental capacity to find a family photographer with a professional studio to have your entire family get in the Easter photos.

21. You can set up this cute layout for your babes with a simple background, and some Easter banners. You probably have props (like the basket you’ll give on Easter) on hand anyway.
