The Easter holiday has so many great photo opportunities. It’s such a fun,colorful holiday for your kids.

I love taking photos of my kids, but I always seem to take the same kind of photos over and over. It can also be really hard to break away from the typical posed shots, that inevitably end up a little awkward and unnatural looking.

That’s why I created this list of cute Easter pictures. It provides you with Easter photo ideas for your egg hunt, egg dyeing, Easter Day and some bonus ideas that are just for fun.

This list can help you to take candid photos of your kids, to show the action and excitement of the holiday. I guarantee your photos will show your child’s personalities if you just step back and photograph them in action.

And plus, I need to take amazing Easter photos because I don’t take my kids to pictures at the mall with the Easter bunny (does that make me a bad mom?). Because well, I find him a little creepy. Okay, a lot creepy. Why is the Easter bunny so creepy when real bunnies are so cute?

Anyway, when I use lists like this, I have more of a focus when I’m photographing. Last year, I got so many beautiful and unique photos to showcase our Easter traditions.
