When I got the call that this Mom hoped to include a live bunny in her daughter’s Easter/6 month photo session…I panicked a little. Where would I get a nice, friendly bunny to spend a couple of hours in the studio? I asked on my Mom’s group and got such a negative response that I was forced to take my post down. Seriously?!? I have rescued and released 12 abandoned baby squirrels, adopted pets from rescues, and generally am the most animal friendly person ever. I wasn’t going to buy a bunny and then abandon it at the end of my session! I just wanted to borrow a friendly family bunny for a couple of hours.Just as I had given up on finding a bunny to borrow, my daughter overheard us discussing the situation and told me that her friend happened to have a pet bunny. What?!?! I have no idea why I didn’t just ask her to begin with . So I called his Mom and she said “Yes” and our bunny session was on!Sassy was the happiest, softest, and sweetest bunny ever!! Seriously…I could not have asked for a better bunny to pose with this little cutie.We had so much fun watching her reaction to the bunny. She made the best faces!Once the bunny photos were over…we moved on to the other Easter setups in my new studio. I am pleased to say that it went really well and it was exciting to know that I could photograph an older baby in studio.We also did a few shots with different looks and with the bunny ears.And, finally, we took some more traditional 6 month photos without all of the Easter trappings.I just love her with the hot pink!I had so much fun with Miss Carli. She is a doll with smile that lights up a room. I love that I photographed her Bump session, newborn photos and now 6 months!
I look forward to our next session today….cake smash!!
