7th Annual Easter Bunny Portrait Event
March 12th, 2016 | 10am to 3pm
$5 per child
(Want to see more portraits from previous Easter Bunny events? Keep scrolling to the bottom of this post!)
If you are not familiar with this event, let me explain! Each year Absolute Photography provides cute, fluffy baby bunnies and baby chicks for a unique photo shoot for your children.
The cost is $5 per child to be photographed with the bunnies and chicks. You may pre-register and pay ahead to reserve your spot, or you may walk in and pay the day of.
At the event, I highly encourage you to make a donation to my charity of choice — the Pug Rescue Network. This Michigan based rescue was founded in 2004 and their goal is to embrace the neglected, forgotten, and displaced Pugs with compassion, providing hope through education and awareness, and helping them by finding their way to a permanent loving home. Those who know me know I LOVE pugs and my very own Dylan was rescued from PRN. In exchange for your donation of $10 or more, I will gift you a free 30 minutes studio session! Please make your donation (cash or check to Pug Rescue Network) at the Easter event and pick up your certificate.

Q. If all your pre-registration slots are full, are you going to be able to fit walk-ins into the schedule?
A. Yes! My schedule will permit approximately one walk-in in between every scheduled pre-registration time. There may be a wait for walk-ins depending on how many show up within a certain amount of time. I am amazed by the response I receive every year, and am planning to make sure that I keep a good flow going through the studio again this year.
Q. How can I purchase prints or digital images?
A. I will have one or two lovely assistants helping me with orders. You can pay with cash, check or credit card. I have special package deals available for purchase the day of the event. Prints may also be purchased al a carte at regular studio pricing.
RECOMMENDED: Digital Image w/ printing rights
$40 per image (savings of $20!)
$38 (saving of $10!)
$60 (saving of $20!)
Purchase of prints after the event will be at the typical studio prices.
Q. I just had my first baby and wanted to know if you could photograph my newborn with the bunnies for her first Easter?
A. Congratulations on your new little one! While I photograph MANY newborns and would love to schedule you a regular session, this event is only appropriate for babies who are comfy and able to support their heads on their belly (approximately age 4 months or older) and older children who are able to sit unassisted.
Q. I have 3 children and would like a photo of them all together with the baby bunny. Is this possible?
A. Definitely! The cost will be $5 per child, regardless of how many children are in the portrait.
Q. I’m going to be out of town the day of your fundraiser. Can I schedule a regular session with the bunnies and chicks for my children?
A. I’m so sorry, but this is a one day only event! I hope that you are able to make it next year!
Q. I didn’t pre-register, can I still have my children’s portraits done with the bunny?
A. ABSOLUTELY! The pre-registration allows you to schedule a time for your mini-session. Basically, this means you get to “cut in line” at your pre-scheduled time! I will definitely accept walk-ins and will squeeze people in where ever I can!
Q. My child isn’t very comfortable with strangers. Or animals. How do you handle cranky kids??
A. There are usually a handful of children every year who are not comfortable with the bunny. I’ve found that those who didn’t like the bunny, didn’t mind the baby chicks! As a last ditch result, I will use a stuffed bunny and the portraits will still be adorable. If your child has a melt down, I recommend hanging out in the lobby for a while until they become more comfortable. I will let someone else go ahead of you and try again in a little bit.
Q. What happens to the animals after the shoot?
A. I am extremely careful with the bunnies and chicks during the shoot. Their safety and the safety of your children is my number one priority! I have never had any injuries during our shoots and plan to keep it that way! I highly recommend using hand sanitizer after handling the animals. After the shoot, the bunnies will return home with me. The chicks have already found their forever home and will join all the egg layers from the previous three years!
If you have any additional questions regarding this event, please let me know! I am SUPER excited for this event and am looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new!
Pre-registration is now open for 2016. We will again accept walk-ins this year.
(If you choose to walk-in, you will still need to pay the $5/child mini-session fee.)
