Every year I visit the Easter Bunny at the Hamilton Mall with my kids. This is the first year we won’t be able to because of Covid-19. I didn’t want to break tradition, so, I decided to turn to Digital Easter Bunny Photos! This is actually the first year that my son didn’t scream! That’s because he was actually standing right in front of my husband!
Since the Easter Bunny is considered a non-essential employee, he’s social distancing at home, painting all of his Easter Eggs and wishing he was hopping around town. Just like him, we are at home. That doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun, especially when our kids are home from school. Let’s keep his spirit going and show your kids some magic!
I am so excited to offer Digital Easter Bunny Photos for 2020! This is a limited time special for this Easter. If you would like your child or children to be able to have a beautiful keepsake with the Easter bunny this year please reach out to me!
For your Digital Easter Bunny Photo, the cost is $29.00. This includes the time to enhance your image and digitally edit your child or children into the photo with the Easter Bunny!
I have a professional print lab and can print on site and mail to your home. If you would like to pick up your prints, that can be arranged without any contact to adhere to social distancing rules and regulations.
5×7 – $15.00
4×6 – $10.00
4 wallets – $10.00
3×5 – $5.00
Place your order! Email me, at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you would like, for example, just the digital for $29 or (1) 5×7 and the digital for $44. I will send you a link to pay online.
Find a camera! This can be your cell phone, a point and shoot camera, or a DSLR camera! Whichever camera you use, make sure you can get the photo to me via email.
Find an adult for them to sit on! This could be Mom, Dad, Grandmom, Grandpop, Aunt, Uncle, etc. You want them to sit on one knee. Make sure no hands are around the waste of the child.
Take a photo! This is a very important step in having a wonderful Easter bunny photo! You will need to take your children outside, and find a shaded area. Take a photo of them in the shade and make sure there are no sun spot on their head, face or body. Sun spots are when the sun shines through the leaves in a tree and create little dot of light mixed with shade. Thats not good! You will want your children to have the same amount of light on their entire body – head to toe!
Email the photo! Email me the highest resolution photo you are able to send. The more resolution, the better the quality of the image.
Receive your images! As soon as I am done with your image you will receive an email with the digital. If you’ve ordered a print, I will let you know when it is done. You will have the option to pick it up or have it mailed to you. There is no extra charge to have it mailed.
If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me! And if you aren’t so keen on the Easter Bunny, we can do a field of beautiful flowers instead!

There is something about being pregnant, that sets you aside from reality. You are in your own world. You feel this overwhelming joy for love. To fall in love with someone you have never met, is the best feeling in the world. I had the honor of capturing the beginning of their legacy, the start of their journey, the little life that is growing inside that is going to bring more joy than they could have ever imagined. It was peaceful and quiet. It was romantic and beautiful. It was real. It was a beautiful day filled with purple flowers, horse farms, wide open roads and fun. They were themselves and totally wrapped up in the moment. This is exactly how a maternity session should be.
Brandon and Alaina are not just regular clients, but my family. Brandon, my nephew is so excited and I am so overjoyed that he chose Alaina to create a beautiful baby boy with. Baby Brandon will be here very soon and I can’t wait to welcome him to this new world! They’re going to be amazing parents!
Take a look at this amazing journey we went on yesterday, and if you’re pregnant and looking for maternity portraits, please contact me and let’s set your session up!!!
I love engagement session. Especially when they include a gorgeous couple and my green couch. This engagement session started on a beautiful lake in a campground and ended on a river. I always tell my clients that the background in your images doesn’t matter, because it’s about you two. You are both the stars and that is what I will focus on. In this case, it’s like everyones dream. To be outside, with the one you love. There is nothing around but nature and what a beautiful setting it is! Serenity at it’s finest!
Amy and Sean, thank you so much for spending time with me and being so patient as I made these beautiful images for you. I hope you cherish them and smile everytime you look at them!

Oh, Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day is that one-day that we get to reflect on how amazing we are! We created LIFE! We raise these children, and never get a break. We get up, get them ready for school, feed them, feed ourselves if we are lucky, change their diapers, help them brush their teeth, drop them off at school, get to work, pick them up from school, feel them dinner, play with them, love them, talk to them, listen to them, brush their teeth, get them in bed, hope they stay in bed, then lull them to sleep when they get out of bed… and finally, we are aloud to, we try to go to sleep, just to get up and do it all over again! (Ya know, or how ever your schedule is). I love being a Mom. I love that I am able to stay home and be a Mom. I love that I am able to work from home, and be there where they need me, whenever they need me, whatever TIME they need me. I love it, and I wouldn’t and couldn’t change it, ever.
I take beautiful photos of children, all the time. I take pictures on the beach, in a park, in the woods, in people’s backyard, and even at the zoo and on playgrounds! I make these beautiful images for everyone (and trust me I LOVE doing it) but It’s so difficult to get pictures of my own kids! “The Shoemakers kids have no shoes?” Yep, that’s me. It takes so much time to get my kids ready, get them to behave, get them to stop crying, hitting each other, yelling at each other, and stand still long enough for me to snap a few photos. Well, until I learned how to use my camera of course. It’s still difficult but now, I know how to set my camera correctly, to not get a hand of blur, or a jumping child’s face in motion. It really did just one day click in my head, “oh. Duh. THATS what I’m doing wrong?” Yes. That simple. (And Yes, I shoot FULL manual, no modes for me, I control exactly how I want my pictures to turn out, because my camera is just a tool, and I am the artist that drives it).
Anyway, Today I set out to get pictures of my babies. You won’t believe the location. It’s gorgeous; it’s lush, overgrown and fun. It’s my parent’s backyard. The place I grew up. It was a lot more maintained back then, but I love that you can’t see the fence, and there is all of this earthy green everywhere. It’s really neat and makes for amazing photos! I tell everyone not to worry what the background in a photo looks like, because it’s really focused on the person IN the photo, and not the background. The background is just extra anyway. It’s for fun, and it’s just for color. So after my parent’s backyard, I went to the campground, because seriously, the campground has the BEST scenery. There is this amazing strip of dirt called the landing. It’s great, it takes you out by the river, which is fabulous for photos – and how lucky we were that it was high tide! Like, super high tide!
So, Happy Mothers Day to me! I succeeded and got AMAZING photos of my babies. Their Daddy is definitely going to be happy and I’m just so proud. By the time we got home, the baby was knocked out, and our big girl, well, she thought she deserved an Oreo, so we had some Oreo’s together before she got tucked into her warm bed.
Love these photos SO MUCH – check them out!
