The day before Easter is the day we always dye Easter Eggs. Heading to grandma’s and turning our fingers all sorts of colors is tradition, and one that the kiddos look forward too!
I love looking back on the photos of them oohing and aahing over their creations, their giants smiles as they dunk the eggs in the cups, and laying them all out to admire when they are done. If Egg Dying is on your agenda, here are 5 Tips for Capturing Egg Dying Photos!

5 Tips for Capturing Egg Dying Photos
1) Shoot Candid Moments: I love snapping away, than scrolling through the photos when I am done to see what surprises I captured. Some of the best photos I have of the kids are candid. When you take the pressure away of getting “the perfect picture” that perfect picture will just happen.
2) Look for Patterns and Angles: When shooting only eggs, scan them for patterns and angles that may not be in your face. Move around them, move over them, and move the eggs around if they are dry. You may just find that you snapped a great picture to frame and hang next Easter, instead of buying one!
3) Capture Facial Expressions: Don’t get too caught up in the eggs themselves. Capture your child’s expressions as she is decorating. You will see some awesome expressions, especially from the younger kids and the ones that are dying eggs for the first time.
4) Use Simple Backgrounds: If you are snapping pictures of the eggs or of your kiddo holding eggs, let the focus be on them and/or the eggs, not the background. The grass, a tree, solid colored wall, kitchen table, and counter tops all work great.
5) Zoom In: Get those little fingers adding color or putting the finish touches on their eggs. Really showcase cool patterns that your kids designed. Don’t be afraid to zoom in and if you are worried, snap some normal shots first then zoom in so you have both views.
