hhmmm.. the first thing that comes to mind is Easter Egg Hunt, i dont know how you would pull it off but its an idea,
maybe you can use some natural light comming threw a window, that light with a reflector of some sort might be nice. With only a black bkdrp im sure might have a large white sheet you can also use giving you a white one as well, maybe try natural light and use the flash for the backdrop?> just throwing out some ideas im sure more people will come.. hope i can help

sorry but the only thing that came to mind was once you are done with your Easter photos, you could always recreate the rabbit scene from "Fatal Attraction".

Which brings up a good question...you've now spent $89.95 on rabbits for a photo shoot, what are you going to do with them when done? Do you have the ability to keep and raise them?

Green field, bright day.

Shoot down @ about 30 degrees, get the kids, some rather large and colorful eggs, and the three rabbits in the grass.

Next, take some egg/kid/rabbit shots from the ground, and I do mean the ground, if you don't have grass on your glass-you're now low enough...

Maybe next try having (girls especially) lay down in the grass with the rabbits/eggs and you can take a photo from directly above, or at an angle.

Hope this helps, and please do share your results..


(On the subject of rabbits, keep them and treat them well please, or give them to a good home.)

thats a great idea! thanks!
the rabbits are being well treated i assure you. I have 1 child who has this natural bond with all animals it's really weird.. zoo trips are really cool with her something odd n strange always happends it's like having dr dolittle in your house, not to mention she is like that with any living things, bugs included.. she freaked a friends mom out when she was 4- one of the wood roaches flew in the house and hannah went balistic at us trying to kill it. she went and scooped it up with a box and let it go outside to tell us, at 4 years old, they won't hurt you- don't hurt them.. yeah... gross I know..
and my son, he's the same but all about squishing bugs and doesn't have the bond thing he just loves animals.

anyway when i'm done with them 1 has a home to go to and the other two i will find a home. I had a house rabbit when i was 18 because my apt wouldn't allow dogs, he was litterbox trained and had run of the apt he was my baby, ate breakfast with me out of the cereal bowl, went to the park on a leash.. yeah.. i know i'm strange.. lol
