Easter Photo Inspiration

There are a few things when it comes to photography that I'd like to improve on and one of those it the styling of photos. What do I mean by this? 

It's the photos that get uploaded to Instagram and shared across my social media. I've been working really hard in thinking about the way I display these, the way I lay them out and I like to think they are getting better. 

In the lead up to Easter I'd decided I would create various different photos to use in the lead up to the day and I also thought other people may like to use them if they're writing a blog post. 

I tried to keep it simple so after a trip to Hobby Craft where we bought the little rabbit baskets, some fabric and of course some mini eggs. 

Our house doesn't get much natural light so I have to pick when I take these photos and I often have to take a batch of them all in one go. These are all taken in our living room as we have a window that takes up the whole wall. 

The backgrounds that you see are from a big book of backgrounds that was also bought from HobbyCraft for about £12. 

All of these photos are available to download for free and use for free just visit Unsplash and view my Easter Collection

Let me know if you like the style of these and also let me know in the comments if you enjoy and would like to see more photo inspiration posts.

Easter Egg Hunt at Alfriston Clergy House

When Easter rolls around we try and visit a National Trust property to take part in one of their Easter Egg Hunts. Last year we happened to be in Cornwall so we visited Lanhydrock and enjoy a lovely walk around the gardens while looking for Easter bunnies. 

This time we decided to visit somewhere we'd never been before which was Alfriston Clergy House and a little fact I'd learnt afterwards which is Alfriston Clergy House was the first building saved by the National Trust in 1896.

The house is set by a beautiful open green which would be perfect for a picnic in the Summer. The Easter egg hunt costs £1.50 per child and on this occasion it was a case of looking around the garden and writing down the names of the bunny rabbits that you find. 

The rabbits are dotted around the whole garden so you do actually get to see the whole garden rather than the children running off and you missing the best parts. 

At this time of year they had a few things growing but I imagine in a months time the garden will be full of colour and it will be well worth a visit back for us. 

Both the girls enjoyed it and they received a Cadbury's Easter bunny at the end which really didn't last that long. 

Pretty please would you consider nominating me in the Photo category, many thanks.
