I love kids at Easter. All the pretty dresses, hats, and colors. Here is a picture of me in my Easter Finery, circa 1985:
Last year Annie participated in her first Easter Egg hunt, and I was sure to take enough pictures to tell the story of the hunt (don’t forget to make your must-take list in advance!).
Her Aunt Monica The Easter Bunny put out different colored eggs – the little girls had the pastel eggs, and my older nephews had eggs with cars on them. We handed the girls baskets, and after watching the older boys for a few minutes, they were off.
I cringe a bit at these shots because they aren’t exposed well, but hopefully this year I will get some better ones. Practice, practice, practice, right? Taking photos outside also leads to good bokeh opportunities, because you can shoot at a closed aperture and still get well-lit, dreamy photos.
It’s also a great opportunity to get shots of your family members dressed nicely:
This week Annie and I are going to distract ourselves with some cute Easter crafts, and I’m going to talk up the Easter Bunny with the hope I might actually convince Annie to get her picture taken with him. I’m looking forward to this year’s hunt – Is two years old too young for me to actually hide eggs?
