11 Fun Spring Prop & Photo Session Ideas

 

Spring is such a lovely season for photography! All of natures beauty is slowly awakening and giving way for new life as the warming sun begins to grace our skin, calling us all outdoors and into the light. After a long snowy winter season what could be better than heading outside to celebrate your life and love in the sun! From gorgeous spring weddings and elopements to engagement and pregnancy announcements to newborns, baptisms, birthdays and graduations, there is a reason for everyone to celebrate with a photo shoot in the spring. 

Don't forget both Mother's Day and Father's Day are right around the corner. Framed Photos, and Photo Session Gift Cards are the perfect gift this spring! Both make for a personal and unique gift for any parent or grandparent in your life. Give your parents a gift they'll never forget with a gift card for a photo session with their grandchildren or perfect for that new set of young parents, who might be on a tight budget or too busy with their new baby to seek out a quality photographer. Give them a gift that they'll keep close to their hearts, by helping them to create and capture a memory in photos that they will thank you for in the years to come.

Now that you're inspired to get out and be photographed this spring you're probably overwhelmed with ideas for your photos right?!..or maybe not.. So many of my clients have great reasons for photo shoots but have no idea what they want their photos to look or feel like or even what to wear, how to dress their group/children or what props if any to use. With so many fun and creative ideas out there this can become challenging for anyone let alone someone who is celebrating or planning. 
Pinterest is one of the best tools available to my clients when it comes to photo session inspiration. Which brings me to the meat of this post. I've pulled together a collection of what I feel are some of the most fun and creative prop and photo session ideas out there that are sure to inspire you for your photo sessions this spring!
