Tyler and Olivia’s Easter Bunny Photos
I just had to write about these two cute kids and their Easter Bunny pictures. Tyler and Olivia are no strangers to our studio. They were recently here to enjoy The Best Santa Experience early last November.
Olivia was only two months old when she was here for her Santa photos with her big brother. Even though she’s bigger now, she still can’t quite sit safely on her own. So we placed her in a wooden bucket or on her tummy with the bunnies nearby.
My little friend Tyler is a seriously cute, just-turned-six-year-old, and he just loves his baby sister!
Both of these cute kids also loved our bunnies, Spotty and Vanilla. Tyler enjoyed petting them and Olivia literally couldn’t keep her hands off them! Their dad, Matt, spent a fair amount of time gathering bunnies and trying to make sure that Olivia was gentle on them. Spotty and Vanilla took it easy on Matt. For a quite a while they stayed remarkably close to Olivia even when they were “on the loose”.
The whole time their mom, Jennifer, kept trying to get Tyler to give us a “real smile” and at the same time, tried to keep Olivia’s attention away from touching the bunnies. It worked pretty well (at times).
Near the end of their bunny photographs, we let the kids lay on the floor and just let the bunnies roam. It was hilarious to watch both bunnies actually stick around and hang out with the kids. Spotty and Vanilla even hopped on and over Tyler and Olivia several times! Their music video shows all of that and a whole lot more and is just pretty darn cute!
Six Cousins and Thier Cute Easter Bunny Photographs
Up next is a cute crew of six cousins that also visited with Santa Claus here last November! I’ve had the privilege of photographing all six of these adorable kids since each of them were newborns! Cousin number seven will be arriving sometime around Easter Sunday too. I can’t wait to meet him or her! Joannie and I have also photographed all three weddings in the family too!
We’ll do their bunny photos by seniority. So Anna, Ryan and their little sister Lainey will lead off with their Easter Bunny pictures with Vanilla and Spotty. Anna turned nine-years-old just a few weeks ago. Miss Anna has her hands full being the “big sister” to her seven-year-old brother (and the only boy cousin), Ryan, and their active three-year-old sister Lainey.
Next up, we have the adorable twosome (soon to become an even more adorable threesome), of Katie and Lucy. Katie is now seven-and-a-half-years-old and sweet little Lucy is now three-and-a-half-years-old. These two girls just love all of the chaos and craziness of hanging out with their cousins. It will be really fun to see these two with a new baby brother or sister real soon!
Last, but certainly not least, there’s little Veronica. Miss Veronica is a two-and-a-half-year-old spitfire who’s favorite word is “no”. Veronica is also growing like a weed. She’s as tall as both Lainey and Lucy, who are both roughly a year older then she is. Veronica has her own agenda when it comes to having her bunny photos taken. It’s a fun agenda to photograph too!
We did several different combinations of Easter Bunny portraits with these great kids. There was a lot of commotion, funny faces, bunny hopping (by the kids), and lots of laughing (mostly by us adults). Of course, we also had the whole group photographed together (when we could talk Veronica into joining in). All in all, it made for crazy and memorable Easter Bunny photographs!
More important than all the fun we’re having with these cute kids, is that for more than 25 years now, we have been donating your Easter Bunny Portrait Session Fees directly to the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf in New Brighton, Minnesota. With your generous help, we’ve been able to donate thousands of dollars to Ralph Reeder.
Unfortunately, there are a lot a people who are in need and we’re pleased to help out in our own small way. A big thank you to all of our great clients who help us help others! – M&J
