Spring Family Photos

Spring is in the air, and what better way to celebrate the season than with a fun family photo session featuring the Easter Bunny, or a beautiful outdoor session as mother nature begins to bloom with color? As a mom, you understand the importance of capturing those special moments that make life so precious. From snuggles with the Easter Bunny to puddle jumping in the rain, there are plenty of opportunities to create lasting memories with your loved ones. In this blog post, we'll share some spring photography ideas to help you make the most of your family photo session.

Embracing Imperfect Moments

As much as we all want perfect, Pinterest-worthy family photos, it's important to remember that sometimes the imperfect moments are the ones that truly capture the essence of our family. Maybe your little one is feeling shy and starts crying when they meet the Easter Bunny, or maybe your toddler just won't sit still long enough to get the "perfect" shot. I like to call these Messy Momma Moments, and I want you to embrace these moments, because they are a part of your family's story. Candid shots of these imperfect moments can be just as meaningful and cherished as the posed ones.


When choosing a location for your spring family photo session, consider places that are meaningful to your family. Maybe it's a local park that you love to visit on the weekends, or perhaps it's your own backyard. Look for spots with plenty of natural light and pretty scenery. Don't be afraid to get creative with your location - the more unique and personalized, the better!

*Some of my favorite local spots can be found right here in Hampshire! Check out the local forest preserve. Or come down town on state street and jump in the puddles on a rainy day. You can warm up with a little coffee or cocoa at the Hampshire Social.


Choosing outfits for your family photo session can be a fun way to showcase your family's personality and style. For spring, think pastel colors, flowy dresses, and light layers. Stick with a general color palette, but don't worry about everything being perfectly matched too matchy matchy can feel boring. Be bold, mix and match earth tones and play with textures and patterns. Accessorize with fun props like bunny ears, Easter baskets, flowers, and rain boots to add a playful touch to your photos.

When it comes to posing for family photos, it's all about creating a natural, relaxed atmosphere. Have fun with it! Play games, sing songs, or tell silly jokes to get everyone laughing and feeling comfortable. When it comes to getting the perfect shot with the Easter Bunny, don't be afraid to get down on their level and interact with them.

Spring is a season full of new beginnings, and there are plenty of ways to capture the beauty of the season in your family photos. Consider incorporating some fun spring activities into your photo shoot, like puddle jumping or playing with chalk. Puddle jumping can create playful, candid moments that will be sure to bring a smile to your face when you look back on your photos. Similarly, chalk art can make for some really unique and colorful photos that capture your family's creative side. Other ideas for spring photo sessions include picnics in the park, flower picking, and outdoor games like frisbee or catch. The possibilities are endless! Be creative and have fun with it - the more personalized and unique your photo session, the more special the memories will be. A spring family photo session with the Easter Bunny is a fun and memorable way to celebrate the season and create lasting memories with your loved ones. Remember to embrace those imperfect moments, choose a meaningful location, have fun with your outfits, and keep the poses natural and relaxed. With these tips, you'll be well on your way to capturing beautiful, timeless photos of your family that you'll treasure for years to come.
