5 Cute Halloween Photo Ideas for Kids Halloween Pictures

by Eric Von Lehmden | October 31, 2011

Cheesy headline...yes, I know. But it's Halloween. A time to be cheesy, dress up, and play a character. We at Canvas Press want to wish everyone a safe Halloween and we hope everyone gets a huge haul of candy (that will then be in their school lunches for the next 2 months). If you have little ones trick or treating and you want to get some great photos of them here are 5 cute Halloween photo ideas for you.

  1. Start when it is still daylight out. Get a goulishly great photo of them right after they put on their costume. Because you know that half of their costume will be either taken off or missing by the end of the night.
  2. Get a photo of them practicing saying "Trick or Treat" directly at the camera. Make sure they raise their bags to the camera. This always get a great smile.
  3. Take a photo of them as they right the doorbell at their first house. Get the whole door in the frame for reference as how small (or big) they are.
  4. Grab a photo of them walking down the sidewalk (either away from you or toward you)...these photos are especially priceless if it is hard for them to move in their costume. All of a sudden that robot costume make out of cardboard boxes doesn't seem like the most practical idea. ;-D
  5. The last must have photo is your trick or treater with all their loot. Whether it's in a pile on the floor or overflowing out of their jack-o-lantern buckets. Maybe with you child's chocolate smeared face in the background for a little added effect.

We hope you'll take great Halloween pictures of your kids this year. Have a great night everyone!
