At Home with the "Easter Bunny" | Portrait Photography | Aurora, CO

April 05, 2020  •  3 Comments

I was scrolling through Facebook a couple weeks ago when I saw a friend's post about not being able to take her kids to see the Easter Bunny this year. Oh... I hadn't even thought of that at that point! Of course missing a trip to the mall for my daughter to see the Easter Bunny isn't a big complaint... I don't love going to the mall under any circumstances and standing in line to spend two minutes with someone in an over-sized bunny suit isn't exactly my idea of a great time... but it is a tradition. Now in the midst of a pandemic I could list a million things that are bigger problems than missing annual Easter Bunny photos but I thought... I have time, why not get creative. My daughter is nine and will soon be at the age where she will scoff at the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus so I want to keep it going while I can. She may not be able to sit on the Easter Bunny's lap this year but she's big enough to have a bunny sit on hers!

I ordered a bunny from Amazon, pulled a dress from her closet, and put up a pink backdrop I had in the studio. After getting the bunny (who sat in our garage quarantine for a few days), I set up for a quick photo session with her. During the session she even ended up sitting on the bunny's lap at one point but made up for squishing him with lots of hugs and snuggles. It was a fun time for her and she got to keep the cuddly bunny after the session. I not only got some photos of her with the "Easter Bunny" but some spring photos to show how much she is growing up!

These are so cute! I absolutely love your creativity! I would love photos like this of my son.
It's sad that so many memories are being lost due to this pandemic.
What a cute setup! I love the stuffed bunny idea over going to the mall
