Meet the Atrium bunnies!


Last week, we ran a contest on our facebook page so our fans could help us find names for our new baby rabbits. The winners each got a $25 gift card, and provided some adorable inspiration!

Carrie D. gave us the great idea of naming one set of bunnies after the characters from Fraggle Rock, so that’s just what our Atrium studio did! They got their bunnies yesterday and captured some adorable first portraits:

Bunny week is here!

This is a big week for us! Real baby bunnies will be delivered to 7 of our studios, along with toys, supplies, educational materials, and everything the studios need for adorable spring and Easter portraits!

The bunnies need a few days to get used to their surroundings, meet the photographers, and develop a trusting bond with our team members. Photographers will be trained on the best way to handle and care for the rabbits and spend some time practicing and playing with the bunnies before introducing them to children for portraits.

Here are some of our favorite bunny shots from previous years:


Our official start date is Sunday, the 13th (don’t forget to “spring ahead” for Daylight Savings!)

However, some of the participating bunny studios will be taking rabbit appointments EARLY on Saturday… call your nearest studio to find out if they are one of them!

Hoppy Spring everybody :)
